I mean you are literally right in the middle of the canyon. Room was average with nicer furnishings and more updated than our room at the Grand Canyon Kachina. The porch with chairs was a great extra and parking was not a problem at all. We got to stay parked in the lodge parking lot on day of checkout while we explored the park. We missed shuttle tickets and did as many hikes as we could within walking distance of the lodge, the front desk told us to come back at 1pm the day after we checked in as they give away 40 wristbands to lodge guests daily. We were lucky enough to get four of them and were able to visit the narrows. Hands down if I were going to Zion again I would stay here no question. I looked about three weeks before our trip and it was booked for the day we wanted, but three days of occasional refreshing and I was able to get a room. It’s worth the extra for the location and experience of staying at the park, the night sky was stunning!
The lodge was amazing, really. I made reservations online. My red pass came quickly. No problems checking in. The room was great, the back porch had a giant mountain behind it and deer right outside the door in the morning. The lodge was quiet. Now, the main building is a bit of a pain. I recommend skipping meals there and drive into town right now. The store has a lot of good things to buy, but prepare to stand in line or go early. All the trailheads are pretty much accessible from the lodge minus the Narrows. Do your research and get $1 shuttle passes online in advance. I did the research, had no problems getting passes, but they were sold out very shortly after. This was probably one of the coolest places I’ve stayed. The stars you can see at night are amazing too.
Can't get any better location.
The only place to stay in the park, unless you are camping. The surrounding are breathtaking. During covid the shuttle bus is restricted. so added advantage of access to the best part of the park. Food choices are limited but overall food quality is good, staff is excellent. Most trails head are close by.
Best location to stay in Zion NP
You may pay a little extra to stay at the Lodge but it's worth it. The hotel is nice with delicious meals. We ate at the cafe for breakfast with amazingly fresh breakfast sandwiches and coffee. The dinners at the Lodge's Red Rock Grill were delicious all three times we ate there. The shower was perfect in the room and we had an amazing view of the canyon walls. A bonus is when you stay at the Lodge, they print out your shuttle tickets if you purchased them in advance and you don't need to stand in line at the Visitor's Center to get onto the shuttle. The shuttle line looked like a line a Disneyland that would suck up your afternoon just waiting to get on the shuttle. That was a HUGE benefit, not waiting in line to get on the shuttle at the Visitor's Center.
A must stay
All the staff were extremely helpful and everything was clean. I read some of the other reviews and it’s a little concerning. You do not go here for amenities, you stay at places like this to get the true experience of the national park. The night sky is crazy, I’ve never seen so many stars! We stayed in one of the cabins and try to come once a year. We go with the cabins as they are very cozy and you step out and anyway you look,up, down around and it’s just amazing.
