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.

... lucky to get anything bar a snack from a vending machine. Still can't adjust to the fact Americans eat so early of an evening. The jet lag ensured we rose early and this week there were no shuttle buses running so we had full access to drive into the park. I was able to point out Landmarks to Diane and we drove the length of the canyon with me noticing the advanced autumn coloured trees from two and a half weeks ago. We had decided to walk to Observation Point ...
... a new game plan. I decided to head an hour away to Zion and as soon as I arrived my day took a turn for the best!! The drive through the park was unlike anything I had ever experienced before. Huge canyons were surrounding me, and I drove through a 1.1 mile pitch black tunnel, which was quite a ride! I eventually found a spot in the parking lot at the other end of the park and geared up for my hike. You have to ride a bus to access the ...
... them on the way up) and floated down the river for a bit.
Utterly exhausting as the headway is so slow and lots of slipping and sliding. Lots of needing to help each other. Lots of slide mud when you tried to do the banks. But shady and water related so Ruth and James in their element.
A really memorable day.

The sweeping vistas en route to Kanab continued as we departed the canyon area and emerged in Utah’s high desert, driving past Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument and Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. We arrived at Best ...
We left LA on Tuesday and traveled to Las Vegas which was lots of fun. We stayed in the Paris Hotel and while I had no trouble feeding 5 dollar bills into the penny slot machines, I refused to pay 20 dollars for internet service, so we did not blog there. We arrived at early and by 1 o'clock we were exploring the Strip, just walking from hotel to hotel and watching all of the people. Very HOT there, I think it was 107. Hotels are ...
