The only accommodations actually inside the park, Zion Lodge offers families the opportunity to sleep in right the midst of Zion’s majestic sandstone cliffs. There are three types of rooms at Zion Lodge: cabins, motel rooms and suites. Cabins, which sleep up to four people, have two double beds, fireplaces and private porches. Cribs and rollaway beds are not permitted in cabins, but these are allowed in motel rooms, which have two queen-size beds or one kind bed. There are just six suites, but these plush digs include a separate sitting room, king-size bed and a wet bar with a mini-fridge and sink. Zion Lodge’s onsite restaurant, Red Rock Grill, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from 6:30 a.m. through 9 p.m.

the lodge itself is beautiful then add the beauty of Zion into the mix and it's perfect! It was the best trip ever. We stayed here for two nights after exploring Bryce Canyon. Being from Louisiana, we do not see much scenery like this. Beautiful :)
Hard to beat the location. Like other lodges in National Parks are, the hotel is a low-key architect designed wooden building fitting for the location. We stayed in cabin 526 (last one). Once we heated it up (stone cold when we arrive in early February), it was very nice. Especially the gas-fired fireplace which was a godsend because it was able to keep the cabin warm all night without the deafening roar of regular heater's fan...
Service was exceptionally good in our case as I fainted at breakfast. National Park Service medics showed up, taken to hospital in St. George by ambulance etc. etc. Very helpful. Good place to faint.
