The food was awesome. I am gluten free and they had delicious choices. There is a ton of things to do swimming, mini golf. The only reason gave it a 4 was because the cabin we rented air only cooled half. The bedroom was awesome but it was a bit warm in the family area with pullout sofa....until it cooled... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2016

A couple friends had their wedding at the Ponderosa Ranch Resort, so ~20 of my friends rented out a house here for the weekend. The house was really nice and had everything we needed. The breakfast at the main resort was good, and the two pools were a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for... More

This place gets muddy in the rain, but they do a good job cleaning the showers and bathrooms so mud is not tracked everywhere. I appreciated that the showers are free and available 24 hours a day (we kept missing the shower times at a national park just prior too staying here). I was there when the temp was pretty... More

We stayed in the campground for 3 nights and were disappointed that the campground/RV lacked shade and privacy. The landscaping around the resort buildings looks nice but not in the camping/cabin/sleeping wagon area. Overgrown dead grass & weeds were everywhere. No colorful plants or attractive shrubbery to speak of. The roads to the guest areas are not paved and very... More

The hotel amenities are very nice, but the girl in the check in office (Chris) was extremely rude and didn't want to help us, she never made us feel welcome, she actually made us feel the opposite. The resort is nice but Chris's attitude makes the hotel loose clients.

I wish there was a rating between "average" and "very good," because the appropriate rating based on my personal experience is "good." We had to go to Las Vegas for a quick trip and figured we might as well check out Zion. I realized quickly that a trip to Zion takes some advance planning. I booked everything about a week... More

Thanks for this thorough and well considered review. We do try to make our location very clear to our guests. As pointed out by this review, many folks choose to stay with us because we are much cooler in the summer and we are away from the hustle and bustle of a tourist town. We are certainly offer more of... More

This resort is about 6 miles from the East Gate of Zion National Park, 4 q/2 of those miles are uphill to get to resort. They have quite a range of accommodations. We stayed in a 3 bedroom private house. The amenities include swimming pools, zip line, horse back riding, atv's and other Hingis. The food in Ricks for dinner... More

We were impressed with the menu, but the food was average. Hubby had a huge pork chop and I had a steak---Not hand trimmed. But worse was the Service! Terrible!! She said she forgot, but we were her only table!?

This is a great option for "glamping". We really wanted to go camping as a family, but (flying from Mexico) weren't able to travel with all of our camping equipment, so I was thrilled to find a glamping option close to Zion. The tents were great, and our kids had a wonderful time. The food was good and all the... More
