More about Zion Lodge

Nice Stay at Zion Lodge

by TripAdvisor Member BinnyB

I was not expecting Vegas style food or accommodations in our national park lodges so I was prepared for the simple, clean and quiet rooms at the Zion Lodge. Ate two dinners at the Zion restaurant, both with simple with fresh ingredients. Inexperienced staff makes it up with friendliness. Would stay there again.

Loved the Zion Lodge!

by TripAdvisor Member CarolSLC

We stayed at the Zion lodge over Valentine's Day weekend Feb 05. We absolutely loved it. There are hotel choices outside the park in Springdale, but the lodge is right inside the middle of the park in a gorgeous canyon. The views are spectacular. We stayed in a lodge room - not a cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. We had a hairdryer, shampoo and lotion provided. No TV and very quiet which we loved. Everything was tastefully decorated. The rooms have a balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the view. We ate at the restaurant in the lodge several times. Their kitchen was being renovated so it was always a buffet, but service was excellent and the breakfast buffet particularly was great. February is not a peak time to visit the park but we thought it was great. It had been raining, so there were waterfalls everywhere. It was cool but that was great for hiking. And there are hiking trails right from the lodge. I would heartily recommend staying here. And it is a pretty quick drive to go out to Springdale for more dining and entertainment options if you get bored in the park.

Loved Zion Lodge

by TripAdvisor Member burkehouse

This park is beautiful. The cabins are cute and have everything you need. We stayed here for one night in July and fell in love. The cabins have a fireplace, two beds, a closet/dressing area, and a bathroom. The parking is right next to the cabins, and the views are the best. After dark it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. There is even air conditioning, which feels good after 100+ degrees. The only downside was that when we checked out at 9 am there was only one person at the desk and a slow moving line of impatient people trying to check out.

Zion Lodge Cabins

by A TripAdvisor Member

My family (wife and 6 year old son) recently spent several nights in one of the cabins inside the park and it was everything that we had anticipated. Rustic, charming and very relaxing. The cabin itself was quite simple yet very functional and clean. If you expect a resort property you're going to be very disappointed. Realistic expectations are everything when deciding whether or not to stay in any of the National Parks and Zion is no exception. They are what they are as the saying goes. The location is unbeatable, the price is fine and the experience unforgettable. I say this even though it was 108 (F) during our stay. Relax and enjoy the majesty of the park while not complaining about any lack of amenities.

Great Porch at Zion Lodge

by TripAdvisor Member elismom

Stayed one night in Lodge in mid May. Seemed better maintained than some other Xanterra places we've stayed. Motel room very clean, with a great porch (balcony) for sitting out looking up at canyon walls, wildlife, and trees. Very hot, but much better once we opened up back door and windows. The breakfast buffet was good/a lot to choose from (much better than Bryce), and the staff in the restaurant was very friendly and accomodating. Also spent a few nights in Springdale just outside park, and although it was nicer room, pricier place/lovely pool, etc I would probably choose the Lodge again if given a choice.

Our first trip we stayed at...

by JudyinPA

Our first trip we stayed at the Zion Lodge in the Park. Actually it was the individual cabins for 2 nights. They were wonderful especially in the evening when the deer come down to feed on the grass infront of the buildings. Horseback rides are available from this location. In the summer it is necessary to have reservations months ahead of your planned stay.

A great stay in the heart of Zion

by TripAdvisor Member graemeoverton

The Western Cabins we stayed in were very similar to those in Bryce Canyon (also operated by Xanterra). However, the overall experience was even better.

The accommodation was fine. We had no problems with the hot water supply or any of the rooms (basic) features. If I were to complain - I would say the cabins are a little close together.

The restaurant is located in the main building. Unlike Bryce, the food was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient. By way of other food options - very little available. During the day a small counter service cafe is open. This closes around 5pm. The on-site store was open til 8 or 9pm, but offered no groceries other than water, gatorade and some chips/chocolate/candy. In other words, if you want to eat - book a table!

The main building also contained an auditorium where rangers held lectures - these seemed very popular.

Suttle bus schedule was excellent - opening up a range of good trails. Parking was not a problem as residents of the Lodge get special parking/access privilidges.

Zion Lodge made an ideal base to explore this magical park. I would go back tomorrow!

very bad restaurant

by TripAdvisor Member Chaville

The cabins are really small and dark. Our dinner at the restaurant of the lodge was a nightmare. We had to wait more than 1 hour for being served. The food was cold and really very expensive for what it was. The restrooms were closed (not easy when you are with 2 young children forced to wait one hour for their pizza!). They really take advantage of their monopoly in the park. If you go to this lodge, don't make the mistake of eating there.

very connvenient

by TripAdvisor Member dfhauk

We did NOT stay at the lodge, but maybe next time. We sure passed through it a lot during our visit to the park last week. We ducked in to get out of the rain and to dry out a little before venturing back out. Even in the rain Zion is lovely, and there are lots of little waterfalls that dry up quickly.

One warning. Visitors to the Lodge are given special passes that permit them to drive their cars up the scenic route as far as the Lodge, but not beyond. There is no gate to stop you from coming in or going beyond the Lodge, but there are all those shuttle buses, and if they see a car beyond the Lodge, they call the park police. We saw a fellow being hauled away in handcuffs !! by park police north of the Lodge while another policeman drove the guy's Porsche back to the Lodge. Now that's what I call traffic enforcement!

The trails to the pool take off across the river from the lodge. We generally saw wild turkeys somewhere in front of the parking area each day.

Zion Cabins

by TripAdvisor Member Joanel

We spent 3 nights at Zion in a cabin. Room was fine, clean, not musty smelling. 2 beds. 2 sinks which was handy. Room had heat - which we needed. and a gas fireplace.

Probably a little small if more than 2 or 3 people.

Breakfast buffet at the lodge is a full breakfast for under $10. quite good.

DInner is a bit hit or miss depending on what you order. varies from moderate to somewhat higher priced for what you get. Usually need reservations to get the time you want, and service can be a little slow.

Great to be right in the park.

zion,bryce and southwest in late may or june

by travellover11

Hello, fello vt members,
my family with two young adult children are planning a 7-10 days trip tosouthwest. in late may or early june. how is weather in zion and bryce natinal parks?what else to do there besides hiking and sightseeing?suggested itineraries?would 21-23 year olds enjoy the trip??thanks.

Re: zion,bryce and southwest in late may or june

by Easty

I am going to be in the same area during Memorial Day weekend. This will also be my first time in the area. I am looking forward to it.

Re: zion,bryce and southwest in late may or june

by karenincalifornia

In May and early June, the weather will be balmy during the day, but cool at night at Zion and chilly at Bryce. Bryce is at a higher elevation, so its has an entirely different climate. Better bring jackets.

Not sure what to tell you about activities other than hiking or sightseeing in those areas. Those are the two main activities, so if you rule those out...it's rather slim pickings...

Lets see...there's horseback riding at Zion - call the Zion Lodge to arrange. I believe there is also horseback riding at Bryce.

Mountain climbing - oh, well, maybe that is too much like hiking, so scratch that.

Bicycling on paved roads only but not permitted off road - these are National Parks after all. Not sure but maybe you could find a bike rental place in the town just south of the entrance

Camping at both places.

Some environmentally unfriendly activities that I won't mention.

Yes, 21-23 year olds will enjoy both if they like the outdoors.

Have a great trip! These are beautiful parks!

thank you karen for info. i am having consultant at utah.com plan itinerery to include 2 days each of river rafting,biking and hiking.

Bryce & Zion are SPECTACULAR! You will really enjoy this area.

The 1/2 day horse(mule) ride down into Bryce Canyon is great & well worth it.

I understand travel through Zion is now by shuttle bus (perhaps that is only in peak summer seasons - not sure - won't matter - still wonderful place).

Rafting will be fun for all. Sorry - I don't have any connections for that in this area though.

Other nearby areas you might want to look into...
Escalante State Park
Kodachrome State Park
Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park (can rent ATV's for fun there)

Vegas-Zion-Bryce Trip

by OzTourist-Nov

I am planning a 2 night trip with the following itinerary and would appreciate advice if I will have enough time to enjoy the sights?
Day 1 - Drive from Vegas to Bryce Canyon
Day 2 - Drive from Bryce to Zion (is it possible to stop in at Grand Canyon Nth Rim - subject to weather and access as I will be there in mid-November)?
Day 3 - Drive from Zion back to Vegas
Does anyone have a suggested route that is easiest/quickest?
Thank-you

RE: Vegas-Zion-Bryce Trip

You will not be able to do the north rim stop, but the rest of it seems reasonable. You might want to do LV to Zion day 1 (3 hours) since it is closer, stay around Zion or Hurricane, do a day trip out to Bryce and back to Zion. I had a motorcycle trip planned and it is only 85 miles from Zion Lodge to Bryce.

RE: RE: Vegas-Zion-Bryce Trip

by Segolily

I agree with the previous poster that Zions should come first since the most logical route to Bryce goes through Zions. Drive to Zions early in the morning. Enjoy almost a full day there. You should be able to see the whole drive and enjoy a hike or two (Emerald Pools is one of my favorites). Stay in the vicinity (Springdale should have rooms). Next morning head out to Bryce. Drive the full length of the park, stop at all the stops, hike the Navajo Loop and stay in the vicinity (I recommend Ruby's Inn).

Then if you have a whole day you should certainly be able to drive to the North Rim and back to Vegas as long as the road is open. That wouldn't give you a whole lot of time at the Rim and a long drive--kind of like standing in line at a theme park for two hours for the 3 minute thrill ride. All the facilities would be closed, so bring your own food. You could still take a walk along the rim and get a feel for the area, and you would most likely be alone. I like the North Rim, even though it doesn't have the views the south rim does, because it is more foresty. And it still gives you an idea of how immese the canyon is.

If the North Rim highway is closed an alternative would be to take Highyway 12 out of Bryce to Escalante and Boulder. The drive between Escalante and Boulder is a must do, truly amazing scenery. At Boulder is the Anasazi State Park featuring an ancient Kiva. OR, I would also recommend the drive south of Cannonville to Kodachrome Basin State Park and (if you have a good car, emergency supplies and the dirt road is dry-- check with a ranger first for changes in road conditions) south to Grosvenor Arch and Coxscomb ridge. This is part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. We scrambled around the ridge for some slot canyon experience. You can keep going south along the Cottonwood canyon road to Hyw 89, but only if it is dry. There isn't much to see after the ridge but then you don't have to backtrack. Either of those should be do-able and still get you back to Vegas that day.

Hope that helps
