More about Cable Mountain Lodge
We Will Return!
I cannot think of one bad thing about this Lodge!!! We had a wonderful stay. We stayed in a Luxury Suite for 3 nights. This Lodge is literally in the same parking lot as the entrance to Zion National Park, the ONLY grocery store in Springdale, a theater, restaurants, and shops. It is right on the Virgin River! My little boy loved the basketball court that was located right next to the complex (I'm not sure how long it will stay there though). We hung out in the hot tub each night and spoke to other guest who completely agreed with our opinion.
Cable Mountain was VERY clean. The flatscreen TVs were great! Ceiling fans in each room. Granite counter tops in kitchen and bathroom! The toilet....oh the toilet....my husband had a fun time with the toilet....it has a remote control that heats the seat and adjusts the bidet.
Honestly, I have nothing but AWESOME things to say about this wonderful place. We cannot wait to return!
Awesome place for Zion Visit
Stayed for two nights just before high season started and had a wonderful stay in one of their suites. Here are some highlights.
1) Place is less than 1 year old, so no musty carpets or old furnishings. The TVs are flat panel LCD types. All kitchen appliances are modern with Corian/granite countertop. Very classy. Although it is exterior corridors, the wood finish gives it a nice, lodge feel.
2) Closest place to Zion park. You do NOT need to get in your car, just walk across the footbridge and you are there so no need to worry about parking the car.
3) A Market is on site. Since the place had a full kitchen, you can get all your food items there and cook in the kitchen, which has a stovetop, fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and dishwasher with full utensils and cooking items. Worked great!
4) There is a cafe attached to the market but did not use, and the restaurant is Thai which I don't like so did not go there. There is also a movie theater next door as well.
5) Service is friendly, the front desk let me use his computer to check in for my flight on the day we left.
Basically, in my opinion, although there are other nice looking places in town, I cannot imagine one being more spacious (the suite has a kitchen and living room as well) as well as one with nicer furnishings. The only negative is that it may get pricey in high season, I would suggest using your AAA card to get a discount when booking online.
Will definitely be back
Perfect location right across the river from Zion Visitor Center
The other reviews are accurate. This is a first class lodge (more like one bedroom luxury condos) that's grand new, huge, clean and well appointed -- the only place in the U.S. I've been to that has a bidet. If you have kids -- the expression on their faces the first time they use the bidet is well worth the cost.
We loved the fact that it's right across the river from the visitor center at Zion National Park. A 2 minute walk and we were on the shuttle or on the trail. The views from most of the rooms were heavenly. Even if there's not much of a view from the room, you can sit by the pool and gaze at the red canyon walls as you soak up the sun.
The place was CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. The sofa bed was already made and comfy. The furnishings top-rate, HD TVs, RFID key cards, And did I mention the bidet?
There were minor quibbles. Couldn't find a cutting board to use in the kitchen -- even though we found everything else we could ever need (including measuring spoons, tupperware, pots, pans, cups, everything!). The campfires in the campground right across the street made it smoky at night so if you have breathing problems -- that's something to consider. But it was fine in the room with the windows closed. There were some strange knocking sounds behind the wall when I walked across the floor.
But they were minor quibbles. Overall -- a great new alternative and a great value -- even better when you factor in the fact that you get free tickets to the Big Screen Theatre next door with every stay.
location and comfort
Stayed here for 2 nights. Excellent lodge - new, upscale and spacious. The only problem we had - they didn't take reservation correctly and gave us not the room I asked for. Although I asked for the second floor Luxury Suite (with the view as they promised), when we arrived we got the ground floor room with the view to a pool's fence and huge electric box (with mountains behind parking lot). Had to waste a lot of time during check-in arguing, but there was no other room. They apologized and made some price adjustment (it took a lot of time again during check-out). In our Luxury Suite we didn't have a bidet as I read in other reviews, but that's not a point. I just didn't understand what is the difference between less expensive Classic and more expensive Luxury Suites. Obviously, not in a view.
The rest was great - huge 1 bedroom room even smelled new, very much like new timeshare condos. Large bathroom with granite, bedroom with its own flatscreen TV, adorable antique style furniture and laminate flooring. King bed was comfortable and kids didn't complain about their sofabed (it wasn't made like others said, but that's OK). If only we had that nice view we were hoping for it would be the best thing! Hopefully, they will improve their reservation tactics.
Perfect hotel, perfect location
We had a wonderful 2-night stay in this hotel. We had a great room with a balcony with fantastic red-rock and riverside views. The room was spacious and everything was brand-new. The kitchen was convenient as there is a market right around the corner from the hotel. But the best part is that it was walking distance to the Zion entrance--no need to take the Springdale shuttle and even the day we checked out they let us keep our car in the parking lot for easy access to the Zion shuttle. I only gave 4* for service since we did not really come into much contact with any service personnel. We used the pool and hot tub also, which were convenient and pool was warm. The hotel is a bit hard to find as we didn't notice a sign where the driveway is (it's kind of hidden behind the movie theater).
Best time ever and soo much space- didn't want to beat the kids!! :)
We wanted to thank you!! We had such an awesome time. The room was perfect for us & the 4 teenagers!! I can’t wait to be able to come back. My husband & I got a special treat of learning some early personal family history on Zion- from a member of your staff and their family. Thanks to them for sharing!!! After living in the Rat Race of Vegas- I can’t tell you how much it means to be able to escape & be around such friendly people!!
The room was far beyond our expectations and had anything & everything right down to Bath & Body Works products.
Thanks for making our trip memorable!! We’ll see you down the road!! :)

Brand new, but so drab
This "lodge" or "inn" is pretty new construction, and the location can't be beat, it's literally at the mouth of Zion National Park entrance.
However, there's nothing about this place to qualify it as a "lodge" or "inn". It's more like a Motel Six vibe. The pool is this sad little rectangle overlooking the parking lot with a metal fence around it. Ick. The reception area is a dingy little office below one of the units, very Motel Six-ish.
The room was huge, like a mini apartment, with a little living room, small kitchen & kitchen table. But it was so dark & dreary & depressing. Our 'view" was a mound of dirt from a construction project.
The bathroom was large (built for handicap) but again, very sad. Putting up a slab of marble for the shower backsplash does not qualify as chic.
The bed was hard & the pillows worse. Not to mention, we spent more on our 2 night stay at Cable Mountain than we did at our 2 nights at the Venetian in LV in the 2 days prior.
If you're looking for a clean place to drop your suitcase & be close to the park, then this is fine. There is no atmosphere or value-added amenities to be found. We spent our last night at Desert Pearl, I wish we had stayed there the whole time.
WONDERFUL HOTEL, SPECTACULAR SETTING !
We loved the Cable Mountain Lodge! The rooms were beautifully decorated with granite in the bathroom and kitchenette, comfortable bed, two large flat-screen TVs. The rooms were very clean and spacious with the bedroom separate from the kitchenette/sitting area. The lodge is surrounded by spectacularly beautiful cliffs and it is a very short walk into Zion Park. We just left our car at the lodge and walked to the park visitors center which was less than five minutes away and caught the shuttle there to see the park. It was very convenient. We highly recommend this hotel. Our stay was wonderful!
Like having an apartment outside of Zion Natl Park
We stayed at Cable Mountain Lodge for our time at Zion National Park. We found the place to our liking and had a positive experience. We enjoyed having a full kitchen, separate bedroom, and living room with balcony. We made breakfasts and a couple of dinners while we were there. Proximity to Zion can only be beat by staying in Zion National Park. The entrance to Zion is within 100 meters, give or take. The grocery store right on the premises is the only grocery store in town, and thankfully it has some organic items. Management was very accomodating: We were first booked in a room that overlooked the pool; we worried that this could be loud. So we asked for a new room and were given one. In fact, they allowed us to look at a number of rooms and choose one to our liking. We were pleased with what we were offered.
Great location/Great place to stay
We booked this hotel based on the great trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The location is great and so are the rooms/service!
