We booked two nights to enable us to have full day at Bryce Canyon and then visit Zion the second day, en route to Mesquite. We booked online, via a hotel booking website and paid about £200 in total, including taxes and breakfast both mornings.
We were originally allocated a ground floor room, but were given a second floor room, on request, as one was available. It was a corner room (208) overlooking the pool. It was huge! Two queen sized beds, table, chairs, TV, fridge and coffee maker and a small balcony with chairs.
We ate in the hotel restaurant both evenings and, as vegetarians, were pleased to find a reasonable choice available to us. The food was good, as was the wine and prices reasonable. Servers were efficient, friendly and helpful.
We were given breakfast vouchers and were told we could choose anything from the breakfast menu. Again there was good veggie choice and everything we tried we enjoyed e.g. eggs, hash browns, French toast and pancakes. Portions were large, orange juice available and, of course, the refillable coffee cup.
Could not fault reception, housekeeping or restaurant staff and we were made to feel very welcome. Although somewhat isolated with regard to location, we found everything we needed on site, including fuel for our car and the Lodge's location suited us perfectly for the road trip we were making.
We don't play golf, but noted that there is a 9-hole golf course attached to the hotel. The swimming pool is small, but adequate for a refreshing dip and there is a good sized hot tub.
