Historical Traveler Reviews Flanigan's Inn Springdale
Glad we picked Flanigan's! We stayed in the Gary Adams Suite. The entire property was very nice, and nicely landscaped with grassy areas. Our suite felt very private, with a nice private patio with chairs and table outside our door.
The Spotted Dog cafe was excellent, with large breakfasts and delicious dinners.
We stayed 4 nights and traveled to Bryce Canyon and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Our stay was too short!
I would return again!
As Perfect as their Pix on Website!!
Just now writing my review, but in October 2003, my husband and I visited Zion Natl Park for the first time. We were stunned with the magnificent beauty of the park!
I chose my accommodations by searching the internet and decided upon Flanigan's Inn which was right outside the South Entrance of the park in a quaint town, Springdale. Never knowing if the place will look like pix's places put on their website, I held my breath until I actually saw the property. To my pleasant surprise the place was EXACTLY like the website, if not better. I even got the room that was featured on their site. Didn't ask for it, just got it as fate would have it! The property is privately owned with superior service and a homey atmosphere. The room was nice and clean, and cleaning service was excellent. The restaurant was equally as nice.
Choosing October was the perfect time as we were able to hike The Narrows (slot canyons into the Virgin River). Right around the corner from Flanigans is an outfitters place that rent you all the neccesary gear. What a trip of a lifetime!
Stay at Flanigans -- you'll love it!! And treat yourself to The Narrows (just as long it's the right time of year; dangerous floods which prohibit hiking).
Just returned from a wonderful two week tour of the Southwest on our motorcycle. I fell in love with Zion!! Flanigan's was the perfect place to stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The innkeeper was very gracious and helpful and the location is perfect to get in and out of the park.
The Spotted Dog restaurant at Flanigans has terrific food.
Also, while I was there I had a wonderful massage in the spa.
We will return!
One of our favorites
We have stayed at Flanigan's several times. The food has been delightful every time we have eaten in the restaurant. The grounds are lovely. The pool is small, but not too cold and picturesque. We love to stay in a huge suite that is in the back of the property. The decor is tastefully southwestern. The beds are quite comfortable in the suite, as are all the beds I've slept in at Flanigan's. The hosts are very nice. Once we were traveling and we were so sad because our beloved cat Mokie had been lost for several days back at home. We pulled up to the entrance of Flanigan's. We walked up to the desk. When we told the people at the desk our name, they got very excited. They told us that our housesitter had called and our cat had been found. When we started whooping for joy and hugging each other, they were super happy, too. I pulled out a picture of the kitty from my purse to show them and they said how cute he is. They looked like they were going to cry!
We spent 3 nights at Flanigans (April 5-8), and loved it! We were in a 2 bedroom suite (with 2 full baths) seperate from the main building. We had a private patio, and our own private parking spot right outside the front door. We found the service to be very good. Free coffee/tea round the clock, biscotti in the AM. The people at the front desk couldn't do enough for us! (I think they were the owners.) Flanigans is in the perfect location in Springdale - very convenient with the shuttle stop right in front. Also, you can walk to the main part of town, or to the gate of the park if you want. The pool and hot tub were very nice, and we enjoyed the trail up the hill to the labrynth (sp?). It was the perfect vacation spot. By the way, Zion is fabulous, and Bryce was even more beautiful! (We did Bryce as a day trip - 2 hrs. in each direction - what a fabulous drive through Zion!)
Have to recommend Flanigans!
Flanigans is divided into rooms and suites all reasonably priced and right next to the park entrance. We stayed in the John Pettit Suite which was very private, attractively decorated and furnished, clean and large enough for our whole family of five (including three teenagers). There is a small but lovely pool, a good restaurant and the park bus stops right outside. We felt we just had to recommend this find!
Wonderful Family Experience here
The stay here over xmas 2003 was a great experience. This Inn is more
like a Lodge. Painted log cabin suites. Very well kept grounds. Nice
curbside appeal. One of the best on the blvd. Very close to the gates
We had two familys in adjoining rooms. Microwave, refer, coffee pot.Very clean, beds were wonderful, extra blankets and pillows. We had a 4 year old away from home for xmas, and Roger at the front desk made sure we had one. With lites.
We stayed an extra day.The Spotted Dog cafe was closed over xmas, as
were most of the places to eat in Springdale. Dinner at the Majestic
Lodge was excellent and they have a small museum that is worth
seeing.Reservations recom. wherever possible.
A much needed rest...
We stayed at Flanigans only for 2 nights in September and would have stayed days longer had we not already been scheduled for 4 nights in Vegas. the room we had (Christene Fancher Suite) was superb and with a view of the Canyon from the window made the time there almost mystical..restuarant had great food and the entire time spent there did for us all what a vacation should do...provide a mental rest....We spent 10-12 hours both days hiking around Zion and coming back to the room was just perfect...We are scheduled for 5 nights there this Oct.
and anxiously await out trip back...
Great location. Food varies wildly
W stayed for 2 nights in late August, 2002. We found the room to be as promised, quite spacious and comfortable. Access to a tiny but sufficient and certainly not crowded pool. Wonderful views from our room and the restaurant. Quiet and peaceful. Within easy walking distance of many restaurants and shops yet no crowds of tourists. The Zion national park shuttle had a stop right outside the hotel, it couldn't have been easier to get to the park - the entrance to the park was about 10 min walk from the hotel. All good so far, but the food! We had dinner/breakfast there both days. The first day the food was very very good - albeit expensive and the service quick and efficient. The second day they must have switched cooks because the food was ....well ... not good. Still expensive but it took them 45 min just to bring the appetizers (tomatoes and mozzarella) and it was tasteless and dull. I won't even describe dinner! Go back? We'd certainly stay there again but we wouldn't eat there.
Bait and switch
Although the room and restaurant at Flanigan's were very nice, I was quite angry to find that the room I had guaranteed two months previously was given to someone else. I had a confirmation letter specifying the "Michael Plyler Suite" at the AAA rate. I guaranteed it with a credit card and received a confirmation number. Upon arrival at 4:00 pm I was told that "someone wanted the room for a week and they don't leave for two more days so we have another room for you." The other room was not as nice and did not have a king bed (my husband is 6'6"). They offered a simple apology and basically said take it or leave it.

... caught the park shuttle, after showing our Park Pass, to the last stop, the Temple of Sinawava and walked much of the way along the Riverside Walk - an easy level walk in the valley with trees on either side & the occasional squirrel darting around. As the shadows were lengthening, we decided to turn back (coming here again to hike the Narrows at the end) and go to some of the other stops with short walks. Our first one was Weeping Rock ...
... about turning around, we hit refrigerator canyon. A beautiful breeze and a 15 degree temperature drop hits us. Ok, we have to go on now. The canyon is great and cool until we hit Walter's Wiggles. What a climb that was but we could not turn back now. We made it and what a view it was. As we get to the bottom of the wiggles we are surprised to meet Jean who had come after us at her own pace. We all head back down thankful our lungs are ...
We got up this morning so we could head over to Zion NP. This will be our one adventure away from the RV's for one night. We are looking forward to a night in a hotel at the park. It is about 80 miles and close to a 2 hour drive. As we come Into the park from the East the views are breath taking. Shelley is driving my truck to give me a break after yesterday's driving. ...
... as beautiful. The light hitting the canyon was amazing and the colours and shapes you saw was a photographers paradise. I'm not sure if its worth paying the $50 for the photographers fee which allows you to use a tripod in there due to the amount of light that fills the canyon. We end the 1.5 hour walk through with Buddy playing his flute in a little crevice in the canyon. As we climb back up we are happy with our Page visit and grab a quick lunch at Big John's ...
(note: posting late because of technical difficulties with internet connection)
Headed out of LV, the landscape reminded us of the long drive across Nevada to Salt Lake City, except much shorter. After a little over an hour we reached the Virgin River Gorge, where the road snaked through the deep canyon. This is the same river that carved Zion National park which is our destination today. Today's drive was supposed to be only a ~2hr drive, but along the way we ...
