    OK but could be better

    We enjoyed our stay here and loved the view and the room and the location so near the shuttle bus . However we felt that the constant watering of the gardens seemed extreme in an area short of water and would be better timed for when it was not the hottest part of the day! In addition the location of the breakfast was poor (in a dark "bunker") and the large corner patio area that we paid premium bucks for was under shade for all the morning and in the late afternoon - there was small slot between 2.00 and 4ish to sit in the sun but then the gardener decided to cut the grass right next to us then put the sprinklers back on ! To be honest the resident cat got better use of the patio furniture then we did .We kept hoping the gardener was going to trim some branches instead so that we got some sun.

    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.

    Great place


    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.

    Hummingbirds everywhere!


    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.

    Trekking in the Narrows

    What a beautiful morning the sun was out and the conditions were ideal for trekking the Narrows.
    This is the number one thing to do in Zion. So we set off to hire the appropriate gear - wet suit socks, special waterproof boots and a pole. We jumped on the shuttle bus that runs up and down the canyon and 40 minutes later arrived at our …

    6/4 PM By the time we reached highway 89 we were both feeling a bit road weary and where very taken by surprise to find we actually needed to drive thru Zion and pay the park entrance fee to actually get to our hotel - good job by then we'd managed to get a few bucks! The drive thru Zion was like something out of a sci fi movie the size and shape …

    Red Cliffs to Zion NP
    It was starting to hit us that we were on the road at a busy time....we had not thought of the SPRING vacation attached to Easter, being more concerned about avoiding the SUMMER crowds! We set off for Zion NP and again had a few wrong exits etc, but drove through wonderful sights of towering colourful cliffs.
    We drove into Springdale, entry point for Zion NP, around ...
