Quality Inn at Zion Park

Almost three weeks on the road and the girls have had enough – they insisted on taking over the driving and directions. What a scary thought!
We bid farewell to the town of Tropic this morning after more pancakes and continued along the Scenic Byway 12, making a short stop at Red Canyon (considered Butch Cassidy country). Red Canyon …
Managed to set off from Bryce Canyon by 9 am. It was a cool 16 degrees (over night temp of 4).The much advertised German Bakeri at Mt Carmel was disappointing, with the coffee weak and cakes ordinary though the name looked close enough to Michael's Oma.

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn at Zion Park Springdale
Springdale Utah is a surprisingly charming little town on the south edge of Zion Park, but that charm doesn't extend to the new Quality Inn. What a disappointment! All those lovely views from every perspective except from the rooms. The room and the facility were adequate, but we were amazed to find ourselves in a trailer park. We would have liked to use the laundry, but it closed at 6. And we would have liked to try the free breakfast, but it didn;t open until 8!! When you're at a place like Zion you want to be up and out of there, rather than waiting until 8 top start breakfast. Of course if they offered an earlier breakfast, more people would actually use it and overwhelm their small breakfast room.
It IS an easy walk to the visitors center. And there is a free shuttle that runs from the visitor center all the way through town, so you can just leave your car at the hotel and ride the frequent shuttles.
ALL the other hotels in town seem to celebrate that magnificent view. SO maybe you pay a little more for the Zion Park Inn to be able to see the sunlight moving across the scenery instead of just the TV in your room.
Great Hotel I Highly Recommend
This hotel was in a great location for Zion National Park, basically 100 yards or so outside the entrance booths.
The room was excellent and very clean, plus had great views of Zion.
For $60 a night including tax it was a great deal.
My only gripe was the same as a lot of other peoples, in that the breakfast was very poor with very little selection, but that did not really bother us too much.
We will definately stay here, if we visit Zion again.
Great location, great room, great views!
I stayed there for 1 night on 3/12/05 and it was excellent. Nice rooms, clean and everything new... nice view we had, good continental breakfast in the morning.. and you can practically walk to the park. It was awesome!
Great location, nice hotel
We stayed at the Quality Inn for two nights over the Thanksgiving weekend in November 2004 at a rate of around $77 per night, including tax. The hotel's location is excellent--very close to Zion National Park and right across the street from a decent restaurant (Spotted Dog). It's a little hard to find at first, because as you're driving toward the park entrance, what you mainly see on the right is a big sign for an RV park. That's where the hotel is too, so at first we drove right past it. But once you know where it is, you're fine! As for our stay, we actually saw two different rooms in two different buildings, because the first room, though very nice and with a great view of the mountains, was right next to another that was occupied by an extremely noisy family. We could hear everything--shrieks, screams, laughter, etc. When we realized the parents weren't doing anything to quiet down the kids, we asked the hotel staff if we could move to another room. They were very nice about it and moved us into a different building and a much larger room at no additional charge. It too had a great view of the mountains, as well as a sofabed (in addition to two queens) and nice kitchen setup. I don't think anyone else was next to us for the two nights we were there, so everything was nice and quiet! The breakfast that another reviewer alluded to with the waffle maker wasn't available when we were there. The equipment was in a corner and appeared to be broken. In general, the breakfast was the one weak part of our stay--the toaster that had replaced the waffle maker wasn't working well, little juice boxes were missing or frozen, etc. A very apologetic staff member kept going around to everyone apologizing. It wasn't a big deal to us, but would be if you were counting on a nice, complete breakfast. All in all, we would definitely stay at this hotel again because of the location, nice rooms with great views and rates, and very nice staff members who really try hard to make your stay good.
Great Place to Stay
We stayed at the Quality Inn in September. The acommodations were clean and extemely convenient to Zion National Park and the shuttle system. We had a room with a patio (which we recommend). The "extended" breakfast was good and the people staying there were very friendly. The staff was great and we recommend it as a great place to stay while visiting the park. (Don't miss the Spotted Dog Cafe and, of course, the Bit and Spur!)
Great stay, great location
Stayed here Sept 6 and 7 to experience Zion NP. Fantastic location right at the entrance to the park. Staff very friendly, breakfast included...make your own waffles! Rooms new and extremely clean, great view of the surrounding canyons. Would definately stay here again.
Quality Inn at Zion
We called for a hotel reservation through Choice Hotels and found the closest, a Quality Inn in Springdale to be very close, within a half mile of Zions Park. The staff was courteous, the rooms were immaculate and there is no better view I have ever seen from my own room which had a patio facing "The Watchman." These nice people apparently have owned the attached campground for more than 30 years. The grounds were immaculate. The continental breakfast included biscuits and gravy, waffles, sausage, cereal, toast, yogurt and more. We got our money's worth and were treated like we were the most important guests in the hotel. I will return and may even come camping one day.
Hotel is one of the closest to the entrance of the Park. We stayed here July 8 to 11th 2004. We had a regular 2 queen beds room which did not have the microwave and fridge.
Springdale is a very small town with small overpriced restaurants and general stores (no safeways or McDonalds). If I had knowned, I would have chosen the room with microwave and fridge and saved on restaurants.
The hotel was nicely decorated and looks new. The pool is small but we enjoyed it a lot.
Room was a good size and we had a second floor so we had the Mountain view. We could walk down The RV Park behind the hotel to get to the refreshing Virgin river. We rented tubes directly from the hotel to go down the river. Kids loved it!
Breakfast was delicious. Nice big do it yourself waffles + toasts, cereals, juices ect...
Would stay there again if we ever come back to beautiful Zion Nationnal Park
We had a nice stay at the Quality Inn in Springdale, UT. The room was clean, furnished nicely and had a microwave and a mini refrigerator. The extra charge for a mountain view was not warranted as the view was screened by trees and cluttered by the adjoining campground and RV park. The continental breakfast was very good with hot and fresh waffles, hot and cold cereal and other goodies.
Very Satisfied with the Quality Inn at Zion
My husband and I stayed at the Quality Inn in Springdale, UT while visiting Zion National Park. We chose this hotel though hesitated as there were no reviews of this hotel to be found. We found out it's because it's a new hotel, just opened this year. We were very happy with our stay. Our room was nicely decorated, clean and reasonably priced. The hotel has a nice newness smell. The owner and staff are sweethearts. There's even a free continental breakfast which was not just doughnuts. The Quality Inn is also combined with an RV park which does not interfere at all. It's also only 1/2 mile to the park with a free shuttle just outside. There was something wrong with our air conditioner switch and someone was there in 10 minutes. What service! If you're looking for a plush resort, it's not here, but otherwise we highly recommend this hotel.
