Jan 2020..Main building over Cabin
My beau and I drove up from the PHX area and had opportunity to book a cabin. We spent one night and decided to move to main building for a few reasons. A) Wood floors and tile in bathroom were freezing. Even in socks. The was no TV. So if you need it on for white noise to fall asleep pass on cabin. (we thought for sure that after a day of hiking we’d have no problem sleeping- Not the case.) WiFi was weak. The fireplace was a nice touch and re do of the sink area with fridge and micro across from shower and toilet was a bonus. It was too cold to appreciate the cute porch. When we got to main building we were happy to have carpet, tv and a nice porch out back where I saw Deer and birds. The walls floor ceiling are thin so you def can hear noise etc. Overall I’d opt for room in main building. Staff always friendly and didn’t suffocate us. Dinner upstairs was fab. Bison burger was stellar with the sweet potato fries. Kevin and Ian were great! Gave us tips on hikes etc.
Great location, with a trail right across the street from the lodge. It is fun staying inside the park. Beautiful views in every direction. Lovely room, nice shampoo and soap. The only drawback was the bed. I didn’t find the bed to be comfortable but otherwise everything was great.
I wanted to give this lodge a higher rating but several things kept it lower. Given that, I would stay here again. It was convenient to be in the park and have close access to trails. Our family stayed in one of the historic cabins. I was not aware that they are essentially duplexes and the walls are very thin. We could hear "everything" from next door. It was definitely tight for our family of 4 but we did not spend much time indoors. The gas fireplace was nice.The beds were not comfortable (and only doubles and the linens were supposed to be white but were faded and gray in color). There are no TV's in these cabins and that was okay for us. The heating appliance kept going on roughly every 20-30 min's and was loud. Made for a long night for light sleepers. I did appreciate the separate sink and kitchenette area. There was a coffee maker but it was dusty and I would not have used it. We also found hair on the floor. I will review the restaurant separately. The main lodge itself was relatively small. There is a lobby with some seating. We found it dimly lit. Our family played some games here one evening since the cabin was small and did not include a table. There is some exposed wiring on the ceiling as you walk in by the main door. There appears to be a fireplace in the adjacent conference room but it would have been nice to have access to that in a main area. The gift shop is nice.
Cannot Beat the Location! Beautiful Surroundings!
My family enjoyed staying overnight in the park over the holidays. Nothing can beat waking up to the majestic beauty and solitude. Very convenient to be able to hop on the shuttle for the various stops as well. We were impressed with the breakfast buffet included in our breakfast special package with so many options and friendly waitstaff. WiFi extremely slow to nonexistent. Housekeeping could use some attention to detail-single coffee cup still had coffee leftovers from previous tenants.
Stayed in historic cabins during an icy week in December.
Staying overnight in the park makes up for any rustic accommodations. Zion is a jewel in every way. We loved our little historic cabin-even though our fireplace was not working two staff members came immediately and turned the pilot light back on. We were pleasantly surprised by their professionalism and promptness. We have stayed in the lodge also but the historic cabins are so cosy. We hiked in the rain one day then spent the rest of day in our cabin reading. During the winter the wildlife is everywhere and such a treat for an urbanite!
