“Basic accommodations at a good price.”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

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.

This facility has only 21 units, but they are very nice. Also, it is priced much lower than most other motels in the area -- for example, just up and across the street, the charge is nearly $100- per-night higher. (The figures we consider here are for late Fall or Winter -- Summer rates are doubtless higher, but so will they be anywhere else in the area). The Zion Lodge Hotel and cabins are also much more expensive. The Zion Park Motel is very conveniently centrally located in Springdale; just a block away from the main shuttle stop and some good restaurants. The maid service is most adequate. We have stayed at this motel three years running and would never think of going anywhere else. It isn't super luxurious, but plenty for all you really need. The Park Rangers aren't permitted to recommend any place, but we were told by one, privately, that if they were, this is the motel they'd recommend. Oh yes: sorry, no coffee maker, but nearby restaurants open early with plenty of coffee -- in the motel there is a microwave for those who can tolerate instant hot beverages.

Note: Mid November is the best time to visit Zion -- everything is less expensive; the crowds are gone; it is cool; there is a good chance of finding the canyon in its Fall-folliage glory.

Room Tip: The best rooms are quieter farther back -- the rooms toward the front are more exposed to road noise...

We stayed two nights here recently and had no real issues with it! Nice big, clean room. A little dated looking but not a problem with us. Super close to most of the restaurants in Zion so you don't have to drive everywhere. About 5 minutes to the entrance of the park too which is great. The room didn't have a coffee machine which was unusual for US hotels, but it meant we got to sample the great coffee at Mean Bean across the street!
I've stayed in the Zion lodge before and it's great there in summer as you can drive further into the park, but in the off season when you can drive everywhere, I'd stay outside the park again and would stay here again.

We stayed here a few nights so that we could explore Zion. The room was a good value and we would definitely stay here again. It was dated, but very clean. The only disappointment was the lack of a coffee maker. The shuttle into Zion is just a minute away and you can walk to various restaurants. Next time we'll stop at Walmart on the way in to pick up some food and water. Everything is expensive in Springdale and we don't like to eat every meal out. However, the local grocery store was more expensive for many items than the convenience store at the gas station.

Headed to hotel from Zion National Park and went by the hotel. The hotel sign was hidden by the sign for the Zion Laundry. GPS also sent us past the hotel. Hotel is family run with quick and friendly check-in. The hotel is old, but in great shape. Rooms are square not the normal rectangle, but the layout works great. Room carpet, tile and bathroom were in great shape. Hair dryers are NOT standard in rooms but available at the front desk. Recommend asking at hair dryer at check-in as the front office may not be open when needed. The room included a mini frig and microwave. Deck above pool provided great views of the scenery. Zion Pizza and Noodle across the street had good pizza. Recommend the BBQ Chicken. The hotel is in a great location – one block away is a bus stop taking you to the Zion NP Visitor Center. The stop for the return trip is across the street by the Zion P&N. The hotel did not provide breakfast. Breakfast is available next door at Willies or at several small places across the street. Shops near the hotel area are quaint with 50% off Native American jewelry. Price was at the low end for hotels in Springdale. Lower priced hotels are available at Hurricane and St George but require a 30-45 minute drive to the park. If we return to Zion, we would stay at the hotel again.

We stayed 2 nights in a 2 queen bed room. Location was great, easy walking distance to serveral restaurants and shops. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and we slept well. My only complaint was that the a/c unit was located about4 feet from my head, and it kept cycling on and off through the night.

We stayed at this motel for one night before visiting Zion Park in early September.

Room was spacious, bed was comfortable and clean (bedspreads looked a little old though). It also has a mini refrigerator and a microwave in the room.

Location was convenient, shops, restaruants, and a supermarket are within walking distance. Springdale was right at the entrance to Zion Park on Rt 9, and is a beautiful town surrounded by mountains. The shuttle bus to the Park stops near the motel, but we did not use the bus, as we could not park our car at their property after checking out the next morning, so we drove our car to the park and parked at the visitor center for the rest of the day.

This hotel is a good place to stay if you come to visit Zion and want to stay close to the park on a under $100/night budget. It also has more dining options compared to the lodge inside the park.

Kristine Y, Manager at Zion Park Motel, responded to this review, 24 October 2011
I want to apologize to you for not being able to park here at the motel. I have made it clear to our clerks that our guests are invited to keep their cars here at the motel as they visit the park, even after check out. There are times that we may ask the guests checking out to change to one of our spare spots as to not take the space of our newly arriving guests. Again, I apologize for the inconvience of you having to move your car.
