“Lovely find”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here one night on our way to Bryce Canyon National Park. Our room served its purpose for the tree of us, and having a refrigerator was definitely a plus in the heat. Views from the hotel were magnificent. It was a little further from Zion National Park than we had anticipated, but easy to get to. The breakfast was fine, though we barely made the end of it, given that we'd taken an early morning hike at Zion before checking out. Staff's restaurant recommendation the night before was excellent. We would stay here again.

We stayed for one night in early October 2012 in the West Temple room of Driftwood Lodge. The previous night we stayed in Zion Lodge inside the park. The room had two queen beds and a sofa bed. We were 5 people, and the pull out sofa bed was quite comfortable to sleep on for the fifth person. The room is extremely spacious, with ample space to walk about. Even the bathroom is huge. The lodge is located just outside the park. There are free park shuttles that pass by all the hotels just outside the park to take you inside the park. Our room was on the second floor and although the windows of the room give you a view of the road up front, if you walk on the entrance area just outside the room, you get a very pretty view of behind the room with horses grazing and mountains. The price of the room was not too expensive considering it accommodated 5 of us very comfortably. Would certainly consider this lodge again if I am unable to get reservation at Zion Lodge which is the only hotel inside the park.

It was our first time in Utah visiting Zion and Bryce National Parks. The Driftwood Lodge was a great choice. Rooms were clean and a good size. The staff was very friendly. Located nearby many restaurants. They offered a continental breakfast each morning which was very good. The only thing I would comment on is they need to mix it up. We stayed 4 nights and the breakfast was the same each morning. Also the shuttle to Zion stops right in the front of the hotel, very convenient. I would stay at the Driftwood again.

This was my second trip to Zion and first time staying at the Driftwood Lodge. It far exceeded my expectations, especially for the price point. The price included breakfast every morning which was a great way to start an action filled day in the park. The resort grounds were nicely maintained and very quiet and serene. I have stayed at 2 other similarly priced hotels in Zion and this was by far my favorite. Also loved the outdoor hot tub and of course the fantastic views! Staff was very friendly and helpful as well.

Stayed five nights while visiting Zion. Stayed in room 101. Each morning could sit outside and watch sunrise over the mountains. Breakfast was good and included. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were big with separate sitting area. The location is also great because you are not in the middle of downtown. Free city shuttle stops in front of hotel every 15 minutes, which is very convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms that face mountains you can watch sunrise

Dear guest, thank you so much for staying with us. We are very pleased with the updates to the Watchman building, and it seems that you enjoyed all the amenities, including the sunrise (we threw that in for free!). We have tried to make the breakfast as varied as possible, so that there is something for everyone. We also love being out of the rush of downtown Springdale, it is much more peaceful. And we have eight acres for our guests to enjoy, so our property doesn't have that hemmed in feeling.

We thank you for your comments, and hope that you will stay with us whenever you visit Zion National Park.

The Driftwood is on the south end of Springdale with a shuttle stop right outside, so you never need get in your car. The brand new rooms, called Court of the Patriarchs, are spacious, nicely furnished with beautiful views and very quiet effective A/C. The landscaping immediately around these new units, however, is sadly neglected with tall weeds growing in abundance. Look beyond at the beautiful pastures and magnificent Zion Canyon. We found the staff very gracious.

A totally wonderful place to stay if you are visiting Zion. The service was superb. The clerks at the front desk were friendly, polite and very helpful. The rooms were clean and appeared relatively new or updated. It was extremely hot during our visit, and the AC worked very well. The grounds were well kept and the pool was refreshing. I would definitely recommend this property. I also found it to be inexpensive compared to surrounding hotels. I felt like what I paid was worth it. I can't say that very often. My son and I were driving from MI to LA where he is starting a new job. We took one day off from driving to see Zion ~ such a wonderful decision.
