“Adjacent to Zion National Park”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Almost of the reviewers have said the Lodge is so close to the park entrance. A definite plus.
We stayed two nights in late October 2012, using the lodge as a base after a day of hiking.
The room was clean, and there was a full size coffee maker with real mugs. There were
also wonderful lemon verbena soap and shampoo. We had a great breakfast Cafe Soleil.
The price was fair and you couldn't beat the view. We would definitely go back.

Excellent Choice for Zion

Overall: I cannot think of any faults for the Cable Mountain Lodge (CML): it’s comfortable, reasonably priced and well located for walking access to Zion. I recommend it. It is worth mentioning that it is more of a motel than a lodge, so there is not a main area, restaurant or any of the amenities one might expect, but this is not a complaint and I will stay here again.

Stay: My wife and I stayed at CML for a few nights in September as a base of operations to explore Zion National Park. I picked it because of reviews and the proximity to the park; we were very pleased with our stay.

Hotel: The property is arranged with separate, two-story buildings with connecting footpaths and surrounding parking. Everything looks very new and well kept: clean, maintained, nice landscaping and attractive. CML is situated at the entrance to the park (i.e., where the town of Springdale ends and the park begins) with the Virgin River acting as a nice boundary between the two and a footbridge connecting the two.

We stayed in the Judy Anne Suite, which is a large bedroom and bathroom (big shower, tub and fireplace) connected to a sitting area and full kitchen. Located off of the sitting area is a nice porch with Adirondack chairs affording views of Zion Canyon (we enjoyed the mornings with coffee and tea and the evenings with a beer and wine). I’m trying to think of any complaints or changes I would make to the room for this review and cannot: comfortable, attractive, useful space, good views, well appointed and good value for the money.

I swam in the pool each evening and it was like the room: clean, useful, plenty of towels, etc.

Staff: My interactions with the staff of CML were limited to check in and check out, but all of my interactions were pleasant and professional. Housekeeping staff was efficient, invisible and effective.

Springdale dining (as you won't be eating at CML):
• Spotted Dog – Good, but thinks it is great (higher end American food with a great wine list). We enjoyed our meal and would eat there again, but I recommended Oscar's to strangers we encountered on our trip.
• Oscar’s – Friendly and good (Southwestern/Mexican). I think it is just a matter of expectations with folks talking up the Spotted Dog and the two of us just happening upon Oscar’s without prior expectations: nice outside seating, good food, good service, etc.
• Wildcat Willies – Used it for a late breakfast and did not expect much based on touristy exterior, but the food and service were good. It served good, basic fare with friendly service.
• Café Soleil – Standard “out-west” café (coffee, breakfast and lunch).

Room Tip: Judy Anne Suite is great. Get a room on the Virgin River side for better views.

Beautifully clean, very spacious. Nice flat screen TVs. Fully equipped kitchen. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Great homemade cookies. Spectacular views from the very large balcony.

We were booked to stay at Zion Lodge but on arrival at around 5pm we were told that they had no record of our reservation and that they were fully booked. Our entire trip was booked and paid up front via a travel agent. Thankfully we were given a room at Cable Mountain. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and given a great room with a kitchen and sitting room area. The room was clean and the king size bed was very comfortable. The location was also handy as we grabbed dinner and breakfast in town. Consider staying here rather than Zion Lodge.

This hotel is the perfect place to stay for Zion National Park. The pedestrian entrance for the park is literally in the parking lot for the hotel. It could not be easier to get into the park. Of course, the surrounding area is Zion, so the views are amazing. Even if you are on the road side of the hotel, the view are great. Note: you cannot see/hear the road from your room. The rooms themselves are very nice and look exactly as in the pictures. We stayed in a King Bed room, no suite. It was simply and nicely decorated. I really loved the use of wood throughout the room as it made it feel more natural. Rooms are clean, the people are friendly. It was nice to have a microwave and fridge. It was also nice to have a hot tub after a long day of hiking! This place was romantic, but we also saw plenty of families. It works for all! While the restaurants in Springdale were all pretty good, they are also a little on the expensive side. I highly recommended Cable Mountain Lodge and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: If you like a lot of space, go for a suite. But for a couple, the king bed room was just fine.

What an excellent place to stay! My wife and I stayed at the lodge for three nights in late September. Our well equipped first floor room with pool and mountain view was outstanding, the spacious room, excellent daily housekeeping, the personable staff............the only thing lacking was an on-site restaraunt and an included breakfast. This facility is located with direct access to Zion NP and the village of Springdale containing many fine restaraunts. We would highly recommend Cable Mountain Lodge for a night, a few days or a week, to unwind, relax and enjoy the fabulous surroundings.

Agreeing with others - this is a great place to stay. This is the perfect home away from home - I only wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in one of the Parkside Luxury suites, which overlooked Zion Canyon and the Watchman. The room has everything you could want - stove, microwave, dishes, coffee maker, refrigerator, sink. The suite includes a separate bedroom with a *wonderful* plush pillow top king bed, flat screen TV & a balcony, plus a main living room w/ an additional flat screen TV, and sitting area. (I believe the sofa was a pull-out sofa-bed, but we didn't need it, so didn't check it out.) It was super quiet, and with the ultra comfortable bed, we slept great. I also enjoyed the hot tub each night - great to have after a day of hiking!

The front desk staff was very helpful and courteous and the room was kept spotless by the housecleaning crew.

We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: 2nd floor parkside was very quiet.
