Hotel was great. Clean room, comfortable bed. Laundry services great. Efficient and low cost. Restaurant staff fantastic. Steaks were not cooked enough even after re-cooking. The rest of the meal was great though.

This place is pretty nice considering it's age. It has been remodeled not long ago so it has updates most want. The Wifi is free but it is glacial in speed. They told me all the wifi in the area is slow because of the terrain. No free breakfast at this motel and I would not recommend eating at the lodge restaurant. Prices are high for the low quality of the food and the mediocre service. Not many restaurants close by but those that are, couldn't be much worse. I feel the room rent was about what I would expect for such a seasonal lodge, they have to make it while they can. The place was clean and the beds are good.

This lodge is a great option to be near the east side of Zion National Park. It's more remote than the bustling community of Springdale but has a beautiful golf course that is a bargain for hotel guests (even with no clubs). It was perfect for our extended family get-together because we were close to both Zion and Bryce National Parks and just down the road from Kanab (17 miles), with restaurants we adore: Rockin V and Peekaboo Canyon that have vegan options. Although I prefer central air conditioning, we didn't even need to run the room air conditioner at night and we visited during August. It's a great value for the price. Make sure to visit the German bakery down the road in Orderville for a real treat: great sandwiches & strudel!

I looked at several places to stay so we could enjoy Bryce and Zion. This was a great location! We were so close that we were able to visit the Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Bryce, Zion, and Moqui Cave, and could've gone into Northern AZ. The restaurant stayed open until 11:00, as did the adjacent gas station. The scenery around was beautiful. There is a pool, a sitting area outside each room, golfing to enjoy during your stay as well. There were a few kinks, all of which are easily workable, and we did exactly that. I was fortunate also to have someone still at the desk for a late check-in, and am greatly appreciative for that. Should we come back to this area, we would definitely stay here again, and certainly recommend to others.

This was a lovely hotel located within east drive of Bryce Canyon (45 min), Zion (35 min) and North Rim of the Grand Canyon (about 2 hrs). We stayed 5 nights here to visit all of these parks. It was certainly considerably cheaper than staying in Springdale. I was pleasantly surprised at how spacious the room was. Had plenty of room to spread out all 4 of our suitcases and could still move around. It was clean and the bathroom was a good size. Beds comfortable. Pool and spa very nice, well kept. There is an insight 9 hole golf course ( not the best per my husband but low fees to play and rent clubs, my son and husband played 19 holes and rented clubs for about 40 dollars). Restaurant on site very good food if not a bit expensive. Would not want to eat there every night. One downside here would definitely be few food choices--a subway and another small restaurant only choices. Great desserts--must have the pie!! Staff were nice and accommodating. Fortunately did not have a problem during our stay. You could go all the way to Kanab for a bigger town and mor dining options, but since you need to be parked at Zion before 9am, it was a much shorter drive, and we got to take the scenic east entrance every time. I would highly recommend this lovely hotel to anyone who wants a great spot for visiting parks.
