Location, convenient, time saver
Room at the lodge is rugged but that is to be expected. But what a beautiful sight to wake up to; not to mention the convenient of just walking to some of the trail heads. I WANT to make sure everyone knows to book the Zion lodge directly with Xanterra. They are the official national park lodging reservation center. DO NOT get fool like me and go with third party. My stupidity of not know or lack of being able to differentiate the website “USParkLodging” is not booking directly with the park. They require a 10% charge for their service. I may have miss heard but I understood that amount I was charge will be credited toward the remaining amount owe to the lodge BUT I was so wrong. When I confronted them they say in the phone recording they read me the policies. They had great service until after they took my money. So Please Beware and Do Not Book with this company. Book directly with Xanterra to avoid extra cost.
Location, ease, beauty
We were lucky to get the last available cabin for the dates we were visiting Zion. We wanted to stay in the park for ease since not being entirely sure how the shuttle system worked and difficulty getting shuttle tickets. Short drive to town if need be too. Being able to stay IN the park was great. The Cabin was adorable, clean, perfect size and with a beautiful view. Short walk to the lobby for food (Red Rock Grill, not awesome but better than nothing.) We enjoyed seeing the deer visit the courtyard daily/nightly. Parking was a breeze. The AC worked fine. Internet was slow (in all of Utah) but connectable. Short walk to a couple of different hikes. No issues with Covid precautions.
We loved our experience at Zion Lodge. It was great. The accommodations are really good and the staff was excellent. It also is inside the park so it makes catching the sunrise and sunset that much easier.
Hard To Get To But Worth It
Entrance from main road to the scenic drive to the lodge was not marked and we drove right past it. Since this is now a gated entrance to the park one would reasonably think that the exit would be marked. In fact, it is not marked in either direction. Scary. Once we got into the gate and parked at the lodge we were relieved. We had to wait right up until the official check in time of 4PM to get into our room but were pleased with the digs. Nice room, places for all of our gear. A little porch with a small table and two rockers. Very nice.
1 Night to Enjoy
My husband and I stayed here for 1 night, as we wanted to stay inside the Park to get sunset and sunrise images easier. The accommodations were great. we had a refrigerator, coffee, and microwave availabe..so this allowed us to eat our breakfast in the room. Because of Covid..everything is order and take out...I witnessed long longs for every meal..so my advice for the evening..go into Springvale and dine at 'King's Landing'...the sit down restaurant is safe, and excellent food! Oscar's Cafe is another easy option, allowing you to sit down. This does not take long...The grounds in the evening are quiet, you can read a book, or sit and watch the deer that descend upon the grasses!
