This motel in Mount Carmel Junction is a surprise in the middle of nowhere. Our king room was actually a suite with a living/eating area and a bedroom, a TV in each room. It has a frig and microwave. Both rooms are spacious. You park outside your room and we had a back door. There is a guest laundry which... More

Stayed here for four nights on our recent trip and served as a great base to reach attractions. Zion, Bryce and Kanab are within 1 hr of this lodge. Rooms are clean and comfortable and amenities are good. Restaurant is decent but on the pricey side. Discount for gas at the adjoining Chevron is a wonderful perk for guests. Keep... More

This is a very basic hotel - clean, comfortable beds and quiet. The stay was very pleasant and the people at the front desk were wonderful. The HUGE problem with the hotel is that we booked it because it was supposed to be about 10 miles from Zion. What we didn't realize is that the East Gate is about 45... More

The rooms were very rustic, log looking furniture, it was a fun for a night. The room needed to be cleaned better. The floor was pretty dirty. But it was an alright stay. I don't think I would stay there again unless I had to.

The room was very large and comfortable with an outdoor deck overlooking the golf course-location is good if you want to get into Zion from the east entrance-room had fridge but no microwave.No breakfast included and restaurant is expensive as well- I was told it is under separate ownership even though it is in the same building. Staff was very... More

We travel a lot and are picky. This hotel was a pleasant surprise and a great value. Everyone had a good attitude despite the crowds. They seemed to care about all the things that matter to a guest. The restaurant was good home cooking if you hate veggies (frozen and mushie).

In my opinion, a good place to stay if you do Zion park, bryce canyon and cedar brooks, you are 20 to 45 minutes away from those locations. Hotel is great, clean and spacious rooms. Story of the owners is great. There is a golf as well. Restaurant is really great They really really have great meals in their restaurant... More
