Zion lodge is not a five star hotel. But, the service , views, and food are all five star quality. Towering cliffs, deer everywhere, amazing birds, and a deep sense of rest and reverence permeates the grounds. The park Rangers are outstanding. The food is the best in the national parks. Your rooms will be darker than you expect. This is an example of Zion's commitment to fight light pollution. On a clear night you can actually see the Milky way when you stand out on the green. We had the best steak and best fish on our trip at this lodge. The deer are habituated to human, but they are not domesticated. Make sure that your children keep a safe distance. This is not an open space petting zoo.

Room Tip: There are no elevators. The views are better from the second floor. Ask for a room facing the green.

The convenience of staying in the park is worth the extra expense. Guests of the Lodge get a red pass that allows you to drive to the Lodge along a beautiful and scenic road. The hiking trail to the Emerald Pools is right off the main road, and the Grotto trail is about 0.5 miles from the snack bar. We stayed in a cabin room which was nicely appointed in a rustic style. Our room had 2 double beds, a sink/dressing area, 3 piece bathroom, fireplace, air conditioning, safe, refrigerator, fireplace, clock radio, hair dryer, coffee maker and ceiling fan. The green tea & lemongrass shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hand soap, and hand lotion are in larger bottles attached to the wall. WiFi access in the rooms was good. The recent remodeling was true to historic touches, including the recycling/trash can. Housekeeping did a nice job keeping the room clean. The cliffs surrounding the rooms are breathtaking and change with the light from sunrise to sunset. Star gazing at night is well, awesome! The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful without being intrusive.
After a day of hiking, it was relaxing to come back to the cabin room and enjoying the atmosphere of Zion from the comfort of our porch. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Any room is probably good.

This is the ideal place to stay when visiting the park. The property is beautiful, the service is excellent, and the hotel is in excellent shape. The hotel also puts you right in the middle of the park. I highly recommend to stay at Zion Lodge.

Zion National Park should be on everyone's bucketlist. It is relatively isolated,yet popular. And expensive. The hiking is rigorous yet exhilariting. BE IN SHAPE before you tackle this project. Also, TAKE plenty of water. It is better to haul excess water back down to your room than to run out while in the middle of a hike. Summers are hot and unpredictible. Take a poncho.

Room Tip: We booked a cabin several months in advance. It is much better if you have a lot of luggage. Bring...

The National Park Service often allows concessionaires business licenses to provide the food and lodging visitor amenities within the larger parks in their System....this allows a level of service and accommodation for meals and lodging that is not otherwise possible.

At the beautiful and classic Zion Lodge, at historic Zion National Park, there is an upstairs full service sit-down restaurant overlooking the Lodge's front grounds, American flag, and the 360 degree surrounding mountain canyon. The restaurant is completely handicapped accessible by elevator and wheelchair, as needed....and it seems that many people do not know about it, but were just getting their snacks and drinks at the downstairs snack bar area. With some help, we made our way UPSTAIRS into this Zion Lodge Restaurant.

Since it was our wedding anniversary, we celebrated with a lunch in this classic log & beam and finished beautiful wood walled place. Our waiter was prompt, and helpful, as we were seated, and our hostess helped us as we needed an electrical outlet nearby to charge our camera.

The tasty luncheon meal was the Special of the Day, served with rolls and butter, and our beverage at a very reasonable price. Upon finishing, we asked our waiter to take our camera for making a picture of the occasion, and he did so ... but he quickly returned with an "anniversary surprise" .... two desserts served to us "on the house" with candles in each piece of cake! Well, that was a first for us after 47 years!

Sincere thank you's to our very thoughtful waiter, hostess, and to the kitchen's cooking staff of the Zion Lodge Restaurant at Zion National Park for exceeding our expectations with their very thoughtful kindness and hospitality! We will look forward to returning for our 50th anniversary in just three short years! Yes, time does fly when you are having fun! Thanks be to God for three good grown-up sons, too! ;-) + ;-) = 47 years.... -----> 50!!

Room Tip: If you are handicapped, ask for a first floor room...easier than carrying luggage upstairs.

We stayed at the Zion lodge for two days and it was absolutely beautiful. It is so amazing to wake up in the middle of the lodge and open the curtains and see the sunrise over the canyon. at night the deer and turkey are walking on the lawn in front of the lodge. The rooms were very clean and had excellent wifi. It was very clean. We would definitely stay there again. The food at the lodge was also great. Good breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: if you want a great view of the mountains ask for a room looking towards the parking lot. That is t...

When visiting the parks of the US we tend to stay in National Park lodges in preference to accommodation outside each park. Zion was the fourth stop on a 3 week tour of southwestern US national parks, and I'm writing about it first because it feels as if our holiday has finally taken flight after some disappointing times elsewhere.
We stumped up for a lodge suite so we have spacious accommodation but what has surprised and impressed us is the quality of the room, particularly the furnishings and the general state of the decor. Solid wooden furniture of a type we'd be happy to have at home, a modern coffee maker that also makes tea (we're English, after all), a safe that accommodates a laptop, iPad, phones, SLR camera and spare lenses with ease (at Yosemite our safe barely had enough room for a wallet and two phones). Heavens above, there are also glasses to drink from rather than plastic cups; am I the only one that abhors drinking from plastic containers?
If you're on a long trip spend the extra 50 bucks and get a luxury room to relax in; this place is an order of magnitude better than our previous park lodges this trip.
We ate both nights in the Red Rock restaurant; good quality fare served with a smile. Park lodge food can tend towards being canteen fare that arrives with a speed that shouts 'microwave' and a taste that says prepackaged. This tasted like someone was caringly preparing food on site and the servers gave the impression that they were happy with the quality of the food they were offering. And a small anecdote about the servers. Our server slipped and dropped a collection of empty plates with a clatter the like of which I have never heard before. His colleagues appeared from all directions in a moment and just got on with the job of clearing up, which with so many hands was done in a moment. Someone gave the unfortunate plate-hurler a friendly pat on the back, then everyone went back about their business. It all gave the impression of a happy crew working together to make sure our vacation was the best it could be. We like that.

Room Tip: Suites worth the extra cost
