I was surprised to read the recent poor reviews of the Quality Inn as we (husband, brother and I) had a great 2 night stay there in May. The Inn is located on the two lane road right outside the park, where there are a number of lodging choices lined up on either side of the road. The Quality Inn is one of the closest to the park entrance, a 2 minute, two stop bus ride away. I was very happy with the location.
We were looking for a reaaonably nice, economical place to stay as our plan was to spend as much time in the park as possible. The prices for that particular weekend were $140/night or more at the other options we were considering: Desert Pearl and Best Western; Zion lodge inside the park was completely booked. We were able to book a room for AAA rate $85 a night at the Quality Inn for two nights (Sat and Sun). The reviews on trip advisor from prior travellers were pretty good so I went for it. Since there was a significant difference in price, I didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised.
Our room was on the first floor so we didn't have to lug our luggage up any stairs, which was a plus, since they didn't have an elevator. The room was clean, large, with two beds and a good sized bathroom with run of the mill, motel furnishings and toiletries which were fine. With three adults in the room, the room didn't feel cramped. I had called numerous times before arrival to request a room with a refrigerator. They couldn't accommodate me but said they would move a fridge to the room if there was an extra one. Well, we were lucky because there was an extra fridge which they moved into our room promptly. It appears that other folks had problems securing a fridge during their stay which is too bad. I felt slightly guilty as I had anticipated not having a fridge and we had brought a huge cooler with us as well.
The breakfast was simple but good and fueling. The breakfast room is small and does get crowded but there is additional seating outside which is where we had our coffee, cereal and waffles both mornings. Most of the other hotels/inns do not serve breakfast so we were pretty happy with what we got. We basically stayed out in the park all day and returned to the inn to regroup and head out again, shower and sleep. We never used the pool, did notice it was on the small side though. As for the owner, we never dealt with him, the 2 women who helped us at the counter when we checked in and out were helpful and courteous.
One very minor problem we had was the first night, there was a problem with hot water and we each suffered a cold shower but it was fixed by the morning. In general, for the price, our stay was exceptional. Great location, large clean room, fridge was a big plus, breakfast was decent and of course, having Zion National Park at our doorstep was AWESOME. Some advice: don't pay the extra for a "view room", it's not worth it, why would you need a view from your room when you can just step outside and see everything up close and personal?
