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.

This hotel is pricey. But, you are paying for location. It is nice to be able to drive your car into the park and not have to take an additional bus ride or pay extra for parking. That being said, you still have to ride the buses to get around inside the park. Because of this Zion was not my favorite. There were so many people and a lot of trails are closed...I digress... this is about the hotel. It was clean but a little dated. There was a coffee maker and fridge. It was nice to sit outside the front of the lodge in the rocking chairs after the throngs of people left for the day. It was also nice to get up early and be on the trail to Angel's landing before everyone else got there. If you are going to Zion, I recommend staying in the Lodge. Even with the high price, it makes the visit less of a hassle.

We were able to get into the lodge for one night at the last minute. Should plan WAY in advance if you want to stay. We were in a wonderfully historic rustic cabin, but very comfortable extras (gas fireplace, Kuerig machine). Right where the bus through the canyon stops for visitors. Adequate restaurant on site. No need to travel in and out of park. In fact the ONLY way you can park beyond where the buses into the canyon start. Just a breathtaking location. This is the place to stay if you want to really FEEL like you have visited the park!
