Absolutely loved the hotel! Its great because, so many different people from all over the world come to stay there. As you swim or hot tub, you can meet and get to know some awesome people! The rooms were great and the bed was honestly the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on in a hotel. Wonderful experience! Only downside... More

We stayed here two nights while visiting Zion National Park. Large room (there were three of us) was immaculately clean and very comfortable - I think bathroom must be new this year (and a shower you can fully stand up in). The balcony overlooking the golf course made a great place to sit early evening. The restaurant was great food... More

Great place for families that is centrally located. Pool is clean and people were nice. Rooms were clean and very warm & inviting. Grounds were kept and staff friendly! The rooms actually have a Keurig coffee maker which was a nice surprise! The view from our room was of the Mountain side which was also a nice surprise!

We enjoyed our night at the Thunderbird and all the history of the restaurant and hotel. Loved the decor of the rooms and breakfast was amazing in the restaurant the next morning. After traveling from Bryce Canyon and heading to Zion, it was nice to get up the next morning and be so close to the entrance to Zion National... More

The hotel was terribly overpriced. Most of the rooms are old, but refurbished. Breakfast was NOT included. Pool was great, grass area was well managed. Asphalt parking area was poor, with some holes and much loose gravel.

The people were good but the room was not worth it. The internet was soooooo slow and I had to work every night we were on our trip (which was 2 weeks). This was the only hotel we had this much trouble with: No hot water. Refrigerator didn't have a freezer and didn't cool enough. Had to take ice packs... More

My husband and I were passing through from Zion to Bryce Canyon on a Saturday night and were desperate for a place to lay our head for the night at almost 8p. We got the last room...a king suite for a crazy $200. We were, however, very impressed with the suite! Extremely spacious, clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Unfortunately, there...

The Best Western East Zion Thunderbird Lodge was easy to find and centrally located to Utah parks. The rooms were larger than most and you can park right in front of your room. Updated and clean, with in room frig and free Keurig coffee as most BW hotels. No free breakfast at this Best Western as the restaurant is privately... More

We checked in late since we were coming from Bryce. I had an issue at check-in and the desk clerk was very understanding and helpful. The room was large and comfortable. I was bummed about no breakfast, but we had planned for it and brought stuff to eat. I liked getting the 20 cents-off-each-gallon coupon for the Chevron station next... More
