“Zion in your backyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Spent a week at the Desert Pearl the first week of Sep for its location so near Zion NP and as jumping off point up thru the East Gate of Zion toward Kanab and East to Page, AZ where we rafted down the Colorado River w/ Colorado River Discovery...not to mention traveled south from Kanab to the Grand Canyon North Rim. The Pearl is everything earlier reviews mentioned - browsed TripAdvisor for several similar Springdale places and liked what we read and saw thru photos. Easy walk down the sidewalks to many of the shops and restaurants...great amenities, beds were soft, pillows better, Internet connection worked well, staff great and the view out our backdoor and balcony overlooking the River was peaceful early in the mornings and welcoming after we trekked back after a long day. The Zion cliffs in the backdrop were great - and watching the night sky from our balcony was very cool...especially well before the sun rose and no one was stirring. Loved watching several families 'tube' down the river - and enjoyed an early morning breakfast on the picnic tables at river's edge. The decor is very Ikea - nice, clean, and high ceilings on the 2nd deck. Beware the top floor though for older travelers who may not have quite as much energy at the end of the day to hike up those short 2 flights. Don't forget to explore Grafton (Google it) - on way out of Springdale toward St. George - first little town after Springdale - look for small sign - take left - follow the dirt road a few miles - early Mormon settlement and added bonus where Butch Cassidy & Sundance Kid filmed some scenes...church, house, and barn where 'raindrops kept falling on your head' scenes were shot. Glad we found the Pearl and great base to stage your exploring.

Room Tip: Second floors have short 2 flight stairs - hike after long day - older travelers may prefer first fl...

We stayed for 4 nights in early September, and would have been happy staying longer. Lovely room, really more like a large loft-style studio apartment, very clean and airy. The kitchen amenities were just right, fridge, microwave, toaster oven and a small dishwasher. Plates, glasses etc too. We were in a king poolside room, which was lovely, although if I was to return I'd go for the riverside view. The balconies of those rooms looked over a lawn leading to the river, with open canyon-like country beyond. The entire hotel was kept spotless, and the cafe was perfect for morning coffee-brought back to the room and enjoyed on the balcony... There's plenty of restaurants within walking distance, from very near by to 15 mins. We really liked Bit and Spur, and also the Spotted Dog. There's a great supermarket called Sol Foods about 5 mins away (on foot) -good salad bar and prepared food and everything else that you might need.
And Zion...wow. We did Emerald Pools, the Watchman, the Narrows (brilliant), Pa'rus and explored some lesser travelled trails on the east side-Hanging Gardens and Shelf Canyon. Look them up...! (And bring lots and lots of water). There are lots of shuttles into the park, but you can get parking inside if you're in before 10 am generally.

Room Tip: An upstairs riverside view would be my choice. But-they're all good.

We had a great room, located outside of Zion Park. the bus shuttle was located right outside of the hotel. The pool and hot tub were great after a day of hiking. The staff was very helpful. We located for a number of good restaurants and local shops

we stayed at the Springdae Desert Pearl on 9/10-9/13/2012.The room was great.We had adouble queen ,poolside room on the 2nd floor. The room had very comfortable beds, sitting area, kitchenette (fridge,dishwasher,microwave oven,sink,coffeemaker) & a nice deck to sit & read or gaze out at the canyon peaks. There is a coffee shop which has Starbucks coffee & pastries,sandwich type offerrings for a quick breakfast or snack. There are restaurants nearby, you can walk ortake th free shuttle through town or to the visitor's center @ Zion.The staff is friendly & helpful, a pleasure to meet after a long drive from the Grand Canyon. The pool is an oasis!

Stayed here only one night and were disappointed that we didn't schedule more time here. I can't think of a better place for a couples retreat or a family vacation. There's is something for every member of the family here. The rooms, complete with living and dining area as well as beautifully appointed kitchenette, are spa-like in decor...so soothing and calm. We had a room on the Virgin River with a lovely balcony.

The hotel has no restaurant but the kitchenettes have all the bells and whistles. Stop at a grocery store and pick up breakfast fixins (hotel provides the coffee), or hit one of the restaurants like Cafe Soleil for breakfast and lunch.

The hotel pool area is elegant for adults to lounge by, yet large and inviting for the kids. The hotel also includes self-service laundry facilities. What a great idea!...particularly for those families who play hard on vacation.

And Zion is the place to play on vacation! Hiking, biking, rock climbing, strolling through Springdale...we shall return!

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra charge, get a room on the river. First-floor rooms have lovely patios an...

This hotel is ideally located in Springdale, minutes from the Zion National Park. Spacious rooms are very well equipped, for self catering, with a microwave fridge etc.

The site has a pool and laundry.

The scenery around the area is wonderful.
A free bus shuttle takes you to the top of the valley and pick up/drop off points all along the way.

Ideal for families and couples. EXCELLENT

We spent a couple of nights here during our travels around Nevada and Arizona. This is a superb facility, rooms are great staff are very friendly and helpful. Located 5 mins from the Zion Canyon visitor centre and on the shuttle route it is superb for getting to the Canyon for a hike. The canyon is superb with some fantastic views. Jane loved the local restaurants and shops which can be walked to in the evening - excellent!!
