Trip Advisor is my go-to for finding non-chain lodging and once again, the reviews here are spot on. We stayed 2 nights in a room in the Narrows section and were very satisfied. Pros and cons of Driftwood Lodge:
Friendly and helpful staff. The tub in our shower was not draining properly and the young lady at the front desk said she would go fix it herself. Came back from dinner and drain was fine.
Beautiful and peaceful location. Located at the far edge of the town of Springdale with amazing views. Enjoyed quiet evenings just before sunset sitting on the "beach" next to the river behind the lodge.
Spacious and spotlessly clean room and bathroom. Separate small room off the bathroom with fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Most comfortable bed of the 3 places we stayed on this trip.
Convenience. Free town shuttle that would take you to places in town as well as to the Visitor Center in Zion was right in front of the lodge. As a side note, we loved the charming town of Springdale!
Hard pressed to think of any, but would mention that the AC unit was quite loud when it cycled on and off, which was frequently. Maybe we should have asked if that was normal, but honestly, we were so tired at night from our daytime hikes in Zion that it really didn't matter.
Breakfast. Not a negative, because it was included, but our first morning breakfast was not as satisfactory as the second. Maybe because it was a Monday, but the only fruit option was watermelon,only one yogurt choice, and the scrambled eggs were like a hard mass. Breakfast the next morning was much better, 3 fruit and 2 yogurt options and the eggs were much better. I know most reviewers love the waffles, I thought they were just ok. But I do appreciate that the lodge is providing a hot breakfast. Wish they could offer bananas as a fruit choice and peanut butter for the bagels (they do offer cream cheese and assorted jellies), but the staff said they just can't offer everything different people ask for, and I can understand that.
Despite the minor cons, I still gave the lodge an excellent overall rating. Would definitely stay here again if we should ever have the good fortune to visit this incredible area again.
