After having spent our day in Zion National Park, we stopped at this location in Mt. Carmel Junction before moving on to Page and Antelope Canyon.
This spot was ideal as it was not too far from Zion after a long day of driving and hiking and it was inexpensive compared to the lodging around Zion. Moreover as we were moving onto Page, it was on the road, and no detours were needed. Apart from the perfect location for our needs, the lodging was great and so was the restaurant. The portion sizes were huge, the food was delicious and it was good value for money.
This is an ideal hotel for visitors going to Zion or Bryce. The hotel is located only 13 miles from the east entrance into Zion. Very clean, 9-hole golf course next door and a nice restaurant and great ho-made pie!
We arrived early and asked to check in 3 hours early. The front desk was very helpful in getting us into our room so my 86 year old mom could rest. The handicapped room design is great and very comfortable. Trey, the GM is so service oriented and helpful.
We will return anytime we visit southern Utah!
