“Clean, comfortable, convenient lodging with spectacular views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

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:

Pros:
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!

Cons:
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.

Dear guest, thank you for taking time to write such a detailed and thoughtful review. We are glad that you chose to stay with us, and hope to see you on any future visits to Zion.

We are always happy to hear that our employees have gone the extra mile to correct any issues that occur. We are here for you, and we emphasize this from the moment each guest walks through our doors. We are sorry that the air conditioning bothered you, we would have been happy to look at it. Our personnel are here around the clock to ensure that minor problems get taken care of immediately.

We are glad that the breakfast improved during your stay. Our supplies are delivered on a regular basis, and it is likely that we were down to one variety of yogurt on your first morning. The peanut butter is a great suggestion, we will see what we can do to add it to the menu. Unfortunately, bananas are not something we can offer, as they are prohibitively expensive, and don't keep well.

We are very proud of our housekeeping staff, and thank you for noticing the great job they do. They work behind the scenes, but their excellent efforts are evident in every corner of every room.

We will definitely work on the improvements you suggested, and hope that you can see the progress for yourself the next time you visit Springdale. We thank you once again for your comments.

We stayed here June 26-27, 2014 in the Court of the Patriarchs section nearest the river and facing ZNP. Spectacular view, oversized room, fridge, microwave. Big great bathroom! Comfy beds! Vaulted ceiling! Beats Cliffrose Lodge and Majestic View Lodge for the value!

Dear guest, thank you for the enthusiastic endorsement! We have received wonderful feedback on the new additions, and it seems that the room met with your approval, too. We are are thrilled that your stay with us was so enjoyable, and hope that the rest of your trip was just as great.

We hope that you return to Zion National Park often, and that you stay with us whenever you are in southern Utah.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in June after camping for two nights. The staff was extremely accommodating and upgraded our two queen beds-room to a king bed room with a spectacular view. The room was updated, very clean. It was the perfect place to sit out on the balcony with a glass of wine and watch the sun set light up the rocks. Ideal way to end our trip.

Room Tip: Second floor room with a balcony for best views and a nice breeze.

We wish we had more time to spend at the hotel and in Springdale! Family suite was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was just right and very convenient. Shuttle stop to Zion was right outside of the hotel. Staff was very friendly and worked with me when I made a mistake on my initial reservation. Would definitely stay here again!

Clean, great people, reasonable price, good location (due to easy access of free shuttle bus downtown and Zion)...
Needed: complete rethinking of the free continental breakfast. The waffle was probably the worse I've ever had.. Could not cut it with a fork... No basic items for hiking and hot weather like bananas, yogurt, fruits other than watermelon... Breakfast was not even at a 2 level...
Very difficult to regulate shower temp but maybe that was just our room.

This is a good place that could be great.

Dear guest,

We thank you for staying with us, and are pleased that you enjoyed your time at Zion. We are sorry that breakfast was not to your liking. The waffles are made fresh upon request, so I am puzzled as to why yours was not satisfactory, but I apologize. Fresh fruit and yogurt are served, but only for breakfast. There is a very nice market in town which offers a great variety of snacks and drinks that are suitable for taking on hikes. Most guests stock up on provisions there. Unfortunately, transportation and delivery costs are so high that we would have to raise our rates substantially if we served anything that could be taken out of the dining area.

We hope that the rest of your vacation was memorable, and that you will visit again soon.

Our family of four recently spent three nights at the Driftwood Lodge just outside of Zion Park. We thought everything about the stay was excellent: the decor of the main building where we ate breakfast; the friendly staff; the great breakfast selection; the nice clean rooms; the balcony of each room; and the swimming pool and hot tub (which was wonderful after a full day of hiking). We strongly recommend the Driftwood. It might be more expensive than other places but worth the price.

We stayed two nights in the "Narrows" building while hiking in Zion National Park. It was convenient to the shuttle stops, which we used for dining and grocery-shopping. The building had flat parking for our motorcycle right outside the door of our room. We were also able to rent dry boots for our Narrows hike from an outfitter right across the street. The room was spacious, with a table & two chairs, separate bath/kitchen area with a fridge & microwave, and two chairs outside on the patio. The pool and hot tub were well-maintained. The breakfast was outstanding, with eggs, meat, waffles, & fruit. You could enjoy breakfast in the window-filled room off of the main building, or on the outside patio. Highly recommend!

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for staying with us, it was a pleasure meeting you. I love the Narrows building, because it offers an economical alternative for budget-conscious travelers, but has all the amenities that you expect while on vacation. In addition, the building is in a quiet location, and the rooms were recently updated, too.

We are glad that you enjoyed breakfast, we have worked hard to make it a great start to everyone's day. Thank you for mentioning the maintenance of the grounds and pool area. Our team does a wonderful job, and they don't get enough praise for their efforts.

We hope that your travels are safe, and all your experiences are treasured memories. Please come back and stay with us anytime!
