“Excellent room and service, perfectly located”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

To be honest you can't go too far wrong selecting accommodation based on location in Springdale as the town is cosy everything is within walking distance. The Historic Pioneer Lodge is excellent. Great sized rooms, loads of parking, good quality bedding and towels and very clean.

All the staff are really helpful and friendly there's also a pools s laundry room.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lodge and am really pleased we picked it.

Don't fall into the trap of the 10% off on the Pioneer Restaurant though, Wildcat Willies further down the road has a much better atmosphere.

Room Tip: We asked for a canyon view but you don't tend to see much due to the veranda roof and as people...

This is a typical 2-story linear complex of motel rooms located on the main thoroughfare through Springdale. It claims to be “historic”.

The GOOD:
Fridge, microwave, A/C, laundry, convenient to shops, restaurants, shuttle to Zion NP, plenty of hot water.

The NOT SO GOOD:
Some on-property parking spots are difficult to negotiate and it may be better to back into the spot which, at the rear of the complex, is no easy task.
No breakfast included in room rate – somewhat unusual these days. Nearby associated restaurant offers 10 percent discount.
72-hour cancellation policy.
Our biggest complaint was the noise. When checking in, we requested a quiet room and were given one toward the rear of the complex. This reduced the street noise BUT that put us near the swimming pool and laundry room. The main noise came from either pool pumps, or main exterior A/C machinery, or whatever, and ran 24/7. Rarely do I use ear plugs, but they were mandatory during the stay. I then started looking carefully at the location of other rooms and it seemed that, for one reason or another, there really weren’t ANY locations which were quiet.

We stayed in the Pioneer Lodge on Friday May 10, 2013. We had a handicap accessible room on the ground floor. The room was very nice. The bathroom appeared to have been recently remodeled and was large and well laid out. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The staff was courteous and helpful when needed. We had breakfast at the adjoining restaurant. It was very good and plentiful. Would stay there again.

Loved my stay here, great location for exploring Zion. The staff were really helpful and made recommendations for the area. Nice big rooms and a lovely pool and jacuzzi for relaxing aching legs!
Definitely recommend this place

We found the Historic Pioneer Lodge through Hotwire and got a great deal for a few nights - Springdale hotels are a little pricey because of the awesome access to the park. This hotel seems like it was recently renovated. It is very basic, but clean and nice. The staff are very friendly. This isn't luxurious, but very convenient and a good value.

OK, this was just a one night stopover, but here's some info for you kiddies . . . . .

Small room, cramped bathroom, rather dark. The safe didn't work in the room (rather the owner turned them off as the "run the batteries down"), and manager didn't really want to switch it on for us. Offered to keep our valuables at reception. Room was very clean for what it was.

Their restaurant however was superb, cheap food and lots of it. If you want a $80 stopover without breakfast then then this is adequate, but no more really.

Room Tip: No tips for or against.
