“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We loved the Driftwood Lodge and wished that we could have stayed more than one night! The accommodations were very comfortable and the swimming pool was just what we needed to unwind from our day of traveling. The views of the mountains surrounding Driftwood Lodge were inspiring. Not only was the breakfast delicious but the location plus the soothing music was very pleasant and a nice way to start the day. Loved watching the sun come up over the mountain. The Driftwood Lodge is conveniently located along the shuttle route for Zion National Park. We've already decided that we want to go back to the Driftwood Lodge and spend more time - can't wait!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Narrows located near the river and enjoyed the location.

I looked long an hard on TripAdvisor for booking in August and my choices were very limited due to Zion National Park being so overbooked. It was down to Driftwood Lodge and La Quinta. So happy I stayed at Driftwood. Hans, one of the owners, grew up in the lodging industry in Austria and he (and all the staff) go so out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. We took rooms 513 (a signature suite with a second floor balcony) and room 206 (a basic double queen room). The rooms were very clean, very comfortable, and didn't feel at all "standard issue hotel/motel." Shuttle bus right outside (though we didn't use it). Would definitely stay there again. Wifi not strong, but that's true throughout the area. Here's a tip: Book directly with the hotel for the most availability and the best rates. I won't be going through Hotels.com or Expedia again.

Room Tip: The rooms directly facing the area where the horses stay are the best.

Dear guest, we are so glad that you chose the Driftwood, too, because it was a joy meeting you and your family! One of the best parts of working here is that we get to know great people from all over the world, and this was certainly true in your case.

The owner, Hans, goes above and beyond to make guests feel welcome. This attitude is integral to our success, and we all share in his philosophy. Mother Nature did a lot of the work for us, but we try to do our part so that guests go home with wonderful memories of their time at Zion. The park is truly amazing, and we feel very lucky to work in such a beautiful place.

We thank you for your lovely comments, and hope that you all visit again soon and often!

The Driftwood lodge is well run facility. The room are clean and the furniture is in wonderful condition. The rooms are spacious and include a state of the art TV and refrigerator. There is a nice pool. The Lodge is located in close proximity to Zion National Park and the park shuttle stops directly in front of the lodge. It is an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. The first floor has patios and balconies on the upper floors
The rates are reasonable

We had been travelling for almost 2 weeks by the time we got here and had been staying in National Park Lodges. The Zion Lodge was full so we decided on this place and were pleasantly surprised. Our room was very spacious, especially after some of the Lodges we had been in. Everything in our room was new and well done. The bath was larger than some other rooms we had stayed in and we enjoyed the separate tub for soaking. We loved the porch with the magnificent view. We also loved the convenience of the Springdale Shuttle. The pool was fun for our 13 year old who had been asking for one along the way - it is very refreshing after a long day hiking. It is true that breakfast is not the best meal you will ever have; however, the offerings are plentiful and varied so it is sufficient,

Room Tip: Rooms in the back have a great view.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for staying at the Driftwood, we enjoyed meeting you and your family! The rooms in the new buildings are larger, so there is plenty of space to relax. The views are incredible, and there is nothing better than watching the sunset from your private patio or balcony. We are always pleased when we get positive feedback on these rooms. The owners put a great deal of time and effort into the design, and we are glad that you enjoyed the results.

We have gone to great lengths to ensure that the breakfast menu is varied enough for everyone. While we cannot change the daily selections very much, due to our semi-remote location, we do appreciate that every guest has different tastes.

The pool and hot tub are great ways to wash away the aches of hiking. The heat of summer is no match for a dip in the pool, and many guests enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub. It is the perfect end to a perfect day.

We thank you for your review, and hope to see you on your next visit to Zion.

My family and I stayed here during a brief visit to Zion National Park. The location is excellent - there's a shuttle stop practically in front of the hotel, allowing easy access to the park. The room was lovely, overlooking stables and the mountains; only drawback to the room was that the air conditioner was too loud to use at night. Staff were quite attentive and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the stables, which will guarantee a good view of the mountains too.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for choosing to stay at the Driftwood Lodge. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. I agree that the rooms overlooking the pastures offer great views, and the horses love the attention they get from the guests!

We are sorry that the air conditioner didn't work to your satisfaction. We are always available to attend to these issues, so please don't hesitate to notify us when there is a problem. We are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible, after all, and this is something you shouldn't have to deal with.

We spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay immensely. The staff was helpful and courteous, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast made for a great way to start the day. Would stay here again if we ever get back to Zion.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us, and for the wonderful comments! We try very hard to make each guest feel welcome, so your remarks let us know that we are on the right track.

On behalf of our housekeeping, I want to thank you for noticing their efforts. They make the lodge sparkle, but sometimes don't get the recognition that they deserve.

We appreciate your review, and hope to welcome you back on all your future visits to Zion.

Very solid, clean, quiet hotel with superb views. The beds are awesome especially after hiking all day! The Zion shuttle stops right there. The onsite restaurant, Parallel 88 is fantastic. Eating breakfast on their patio under the redrock cliffs can't be missed. Dinner is elegant. We always stay and eat here when visiting Zion!

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying with us, and for taking time from your busy day to review the lodge. We are always happy when visitors choose to stay here each time they are in Springdale. We realize that there are other choices, and we appreciate the loyalty that many guests have shown over the years.

We are glad that you enjoyed the breakfast, however, we must clear up a misconception. Although there was a restaurant on our property, the chef closed it in 2012. So the morning meal that you had was our buffet, which is included during the season. We were sorry to see the restaurant go, but it was run separately from the lodge, and we had no say in its closure. So the next time you visit, you will be able to sample some excellent dining establishments that are close by.

We thank you for your patronage, and look forward to seeing you again soon.
