This place kicks a**!
The rooms are small but very nicely decorated with new everything. Comfortable beds, new appliances, great location. A great value. I will stay there again.
Great Bed and Pillows
Great Bed and Pillows. Did not hear the neighbors once during my 2 night stay. The bed and pillows were so great that I wanted to take them home with me.
Rooms only for little people !
The room we had was really very small. The door didn't lock very well. But we had 10 % off in the restaurant. No breakfast included, and no free Internet. Springdale is the best place to discover Zion NP, but you can find best hotels ...
Great Location & Pool/Hot Tub
Right in the middle of everything. Small grocery/drug store across street. Restaurants are walking distance. Pool was very nice, hot tub great. There are plenty of towels for guests. Seattles Best coffee shop in lobby of hotel with internet (free wireless with $2.50 purchase) A double capp. was $4.75 and tasted like really weak coffee milk. Stick with brewed coffee. Guests get 20% off at coffee shop. We had handicap room and it was really nice. Room was cleaned every day. Bed was super comfortable, all bedding and furnishing were in great shape. We had a microwave, fridge & sink. Only thing I didn't like is the religious comment the front desk clerk made in front of other guests. We (us and another couple) joked that the handicap shower and bathroom in our room was big enough for all of us to take a shower. The comment was just that and she got all bent out of shape and huffy making sure we would at least have our bathing suits on. We looked at her as if she were joking because we of course were and she said dead serious "You are all going to Hell!". Not professional at all to say that to us. It took a minute to sink in she actually said it it a demeaning way. I got the vibe from all the front desk clerks that they were very judgemental and religious. We were all straight couples going hiking in Zion on our vacation. I would not recommend this hotel if you are anything but that.
Nice and familiar
It's very very nice, all forniture in wood and in "mountain style". The room was new and very clean, not too big but ther was everything you need. The staff friendly and there is a very nice pool and tube.
Position perfect to visit Zion. Definltly I would come back again.
We stayed her for two nights and it was clean and the staff was very friendly. Very good location. Older motel but has everything you need. I would stay there again.
Great Location for Zion National Park
We stayed here for 2 nights in Sept 2004. A great location in Springdale just a mile from the park's south entrance and visitor's centre. There is a free shuttle bus-stop just outside the hotel so you could leave the car at the motel as cars are only allowed as far as the visitor's centre.
The lodge is motel-style and we had a first-floor room which was small but well appointed and comfortable. There was a large balcony and some great views of the mountains from our room.
There are plenty of places to eat and buy souvenirs and essentials within walking distance and a launderette just across the road.
A great place to stay for what we paid. Recommended!
Stayed two nights at the Pioneer lodge near Zion NP. Happy with our stay and the price we paid. Motel is about 5 minutes from the south entrance. Motel was clean and roomy. All essentials present. Only stayed there to eat and sleep. You get a 10% off card when you check in for the restaurant next door. Also took a walk at night and saw a nearby art gallery. Other restaurants and a small grocery stores is very close by (within walking distance) so that was nice.
Great value for money
The motel has been renovated in 2002-2003 and is AAA-aproved. The rooms are somewhat basic but clean and well mantained.
The view of Zion is magnificent and it's located close to Zion N.P.
Staff are friendly/helpfull and offerd to upgrade us to a better room for no extra charge. All in all very good value for money.
Had a pleasant time
We stayed at the Lodge on August 30. It is an older motel with small rooms but they were clean and pleasant. The pool has a heated spa which came in very handy after hiking through the mountains. I found the staff nice and helpful and it is right in the center of town, great location. I would definitely stay at the motel again. The food in the restaurant was also good.

... a kid again at check in because we are supposed to be 2 adults and 2 kids. Julia is on the floor tonight. Ben and I went to the market to get some fruit, sandwiches and salads for dinner. Also, we went to find some wine for me. The market only sells beer. We had to go to a restaurant/state liquor store up the road to get the wine. Maybe the woman behind the counter was just grumpy, but I felt judged! J We came back and ate in the room. Kids went ...
Many people live there lives thinking they are large and important. Zion natural park will counteract that philosophy due to the massive size of the walls. When on top and looking down everyone looked like ants, aka so small that they could barely be seen. We had a free day at Zion and me and a few of the guys hiked to the top of angles landing. Needless to say, it has been the most dangerous trail i have ever hiked before (and that ...
... nervously shuffle round the car park a bit looking at high it is. We take a few photos then set off . The sign at the bottom reminding you how many people have died isn't helping my mood much . Its really steep and hard work just to get to the bottom of the peek . You have to go up a bit called "Walters Wiggles" which are a killer and there is a few times I am thinking I am not going to make it . Charlie is hardly breaking a sweat ...
... mountain(which is the highest peak), East temple(an impressive rock formation)and the Pine creek. You can also see the windows in the tunnels we just drove through.
We also saw a number of Desert Big Horn sheep on the trail and on the rocky sides of the trail. We had a great time in Zion and there are plenty of hikes of different levels so that everyone could do something. There are plenty more that we didn't do.
We headed back to the car and continued ...
... long and we took our turn on the "bleachers". The video was short and humorous at times. Still, it gets the point across. You do not want to mess with a flash flood! The chance for rain was almost nil the next day, so we were encouraged by that info. Next, it was time to chose neoprene socks and boots. We were told that the sock needed to fit snugly, but the boots should be looser. It's better that they be too big rather than too small. I had a hard time with the socks. I have ...
