What a great winter retreat
Zion was fantastic this winter with incredibly mild weather and our lodging experience at the Cliffrose was just what we needed. The room was extremely clean, the beds were very comfortable, the view from our balcony was amazing, and the staff was delightful. The view of the night sky from the hot tub was pretty amazing as well.
Fantastic! ! !
My family owns an Inn so we know quality when we see it. We have visited Cliffrose all seasons of the year, and know Springdale very well. Quite simply it is the very best. Standing in the middle of the grounds you are surrounded by the mountains of Zion National Park. The only way to get closer to the park is to fall in the river which runs along the property. We have the best beach in California, Cliffrose has the best beach in Zion. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. We even know them by name and they always give us a warm welcome back with every visit. We have actually been meeting other repeat visitors as the savvy visitor to Zion knows how to pick the best from the rest.
Best location, helpful staff
We stayed one night and were very happy with our experience. We chose the hotel because of its location--just a few minutes' walk to Zion. We spent almost all of our time in the park so didn't use the pool or walk around the hotel grounds. But the room was large, very clean and comfortable. There are two little restaurants nearby and in the morning we ran out for coffee and breakfast and brought it back to eat on the private deck off our room--with lovely views. The front desk person was incredibly helpful and friendly, and gave us directions to a "secret" local spot for the sunrise. This is an excellent choice for Zion.
One night stay was great. Walking distance to Zion visitor center. Nice room with balcony. Gardens are small but a nice touch.
Based upon some good reviews on this board, we booked a room for a few nights.
What a disappointment.
The room was average. The surroundings were average. What's advertised as a garden is an ordinary patch of grass.
The walls are paper-thin, you can hear everyone coming and going.
As a "bonus," the front desk staff has an attitude.
Spend your money elsewhere. Go to the Desert Pearl Inn or the very nice Best Western.
Amazing views and beautiful gardens
I stayed at the Cliffrose Lodge this spring and absolutely fell in love the property and the location. It borders Zion National Park along the Virgin River and boasts some of the most beautiful flower gardens and views of the surround cliffs that I have ever been witness too. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the service was excellent. Ask for Colin at the front desk for the best reccommendations on just about anything.Michael Clark
Heaven on Earth
My family of 4 stayed at the Cliffrose Lodge in June of 2003. The atmosphere was so relaxing and peaceful. Our room had a beautiful view of the lodge's gardens and the red cliffs of ZION. We enjoyed sitting on the bench swing in the gardens enjoying the beautiful scenery. The pool and spa area were lovely. The staff were friendly and efficient.
Our stay at the Cliffrose was one of our favorites during a 2 week trip to the Southwest. We enjoyed some very good restaurants in Sringdale also. I can't wait to return.
My family of four stayed at Cliffrose Lodge in the Summer of 2002. It was reccommended to us by friends who had stayed previously. The setting and facilities were far beyond our expectations. Every room has two doors, making access to the garden area very easy. We most enjoyed sitting in the lawn/garden area watching the many (more than 20 at a time) hummingbirds flit from feeder to feeder. The entire garden encouraged you to put your feet up and read a good book. The ambience was so pleasant that we did takeout and had a picnic right there. The pool is impeccable. The rooms are fairly basic, but you really are not in them that much.
Cliffrose is tops in tour of Utah
This was one of the most pleasant places we stayed in during a three week driving trip through the USA. The room was big and airy, the views were tremendous and the personnel efficient and frinedly. I would certainly recommend it very highly to all, and intend returning again soon.
Great balcony, lovely gardens
I was there several years ago, and remember it as a very pleasant experience. The rooms were clean and comfortable. My friend and I especially enjoyed the privacy of the ivy-covered balcony and the view of Zion's mountains from it. The garden and pool in the back made the comfort complete.

Der morgendliche Blick aus dem Hotelfenster verblüfft: Es hat geschneit! Die Berge ringsum sind wie mit Puderzucker überzogen. Als wir vor die Tür gehen, erstarren wir fast vor Kälte. Dazu weht ein heftiger, eisiger Wind durch Torrey. Brrr...

This is our third trip to Zion National Park and it gets better each time! We met up with Jim Thomison from Sarasota to hike the Angels Landing Trail. We hiked the strenuous 4+ mile trail deep into one of the steep and narrow canyons. Jim did the last half mile section alone where you pull yourself up a steep, narrow ridge by a chain handrail with deadly drop offs on both sides. The soaring walls are pink/orange with constantly changing sunlight ...
... We tried to get the shots of the "Great White Throne" with a little late-afternoon light on it but never really had "golden light". So by 6:30pm, we gave up on any more photo opportunities for the day, left the park, and headed for the "Flying Monkey" (another recommendation by Tom and TripAdvisor) for a wood-fired pizza, some Pinot Grigio wine (not that great..by Stone Cellars), and then off to backup photos and to bed.
... get over to Zion Canyon where we'd booked for two nights in the National Park campground. It was a great spot, right at the base of the canyon, in amongst the trees and close to the canyon walls. On our first full day in Zion, we caught the local bus to the start of a trail called Angel's Landing, one of the most famous in the area. We had beautiful weather with crystal clear blue skies and really comfortable temperatures. This particular walk is known to be dangerous in wet conditions ...
