First of all, when I called to make reservations, they were very friendly on the phone, and explained their policy about 48 hours notice for a cancellation. That is very fair in my experience. I made a reservation for their room with 3 queen beds, but a day before arrival, one of our people dropped out, so I called to change to a room with only 2 beds. Not a problem, she said.
We arrived at the motel around 1:30 and were greeted by the owner and another lady working the counter. They gladly split the charge onto two credit cards. We asked about restaurants in town and the owner was able to describe 5 or 6 at least. We were given our keys and went to the room. They placed us at the end or one of the buildings, in 119. This was great, there was no one next to us and I appreciated their seeming desire to spread their guests around when possible.
The room was immaculate. The shower very clean with a nice shower head on a hose. We had plenty of towels and a box of tissues. This was winter, and the heater was incredibly efficient. We only had to run it for 15 mins, then shut if off for the rest of the night. The room stayed warm all night.
A nice touch was the microwave and refrigerator. If you want to save some money and bring your own food, I suggest not waiting till you get to Springdale, as the one grocery store has very high prices. There are a couple stores in Hurricane, about 30 mins from the park, shop there first. The TV's are older, non flat screen types, but in a bargain motel, I will not complain, it worked, and they have cable, what more do you need? Besides you are here to see Zion, not watch TV.
Overall, this motel is very nice. I will definitely stay here again when I come to Zion.
