Beware of Bugs!
Well, I picked this place because of the reviews on trip advisor, I wish I had been a bit more careful when reading other's reviews. The good points.. walking distance to shopping, dinning and laundry, but so are other lodgings in Springdale. Room was large but it had BUGS. Actually the property owners are aware of this. We went to bed about 10 PM. As we were turning out the lights we saw gnats swarming on the ceiling and around the room! I can't believe we didn't see them earlier. We called to the front desk, they close after 10 PM!! Thank goodness there was an emergency # to call. They were very pleasant and informed us that the bugs are called elm gnats and promptly moved us to another room. No bugs there.. but only one room away, I couldn't get the bugs off my mind. I feel if you are a property owner you need to FIX this problem, not just be aware of it and move people if they complain. There were other reasonably priced locations in Springdale. I will choose another place on my next trip to Zion..which, by the way, is beautiful.
Do not recommend staying at the Bumbleberry Inn
My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Bumbleberry Inn last month and could not wait to leave! What a shame too because the surroundings are BEAUTIFUL, but the motel was a dive.
It's very deceiving too because the lobby looks nice, but once you get in the back where the two buildings are, it's a total different story.
We were on the 2nd floor and there is no elevator, which made hauling up our luggage a little difficult since we both have bad backs.
The bed made our backs ache even more! Old mattresses that should have been pitched about 10 years ago!
The room was nasty. So much that I did not even want to take my shoes off to walk across the carpet.
We also did not have a screen door on our patio door, so we had to leave the older than dirt loud A/C on all night instead of taking in the fresh air, but at the same time if we would have had the screen door we would have been woken up at the crack of dawn by the roosters behind the motel.
All and all, it reminded me of a run down apartment complex in the ghetto with all of the shingles on the rooftop peeling off.
The only nice thing about this place was the view of the mountains, which in our case was obstructed by the other building.
I would definitely reconsider staying here. Sure, the price may be right, but for an extra $20 bucks I would much rather stay down the street.
As for the restaurant, the food was good but the service was bad - I think they only have 1 waitress working there and like all the restaurants there WAY OVER PRICED!
Great value,and good,quiet location.
great location ,good price,very close to many restarunts. nice mountain view from the balcony. it is set back far away from the street so it is very quiet. it is very close to the gate of the park.
Decent stay at the Bumbleberry
This hotel was decent. The room was very spacious and clean although it could use a fresh coat of paint and the toilet seat was in terrible shape. Was disappointed to not have a balcony room but there was a nice little patio and beautiful views of the mountains. The pool does close at 9pm which is a little early. It is within walking distance to a lot of shops and dining. The shuttle to Zion is right out front. The room rates are very reasonable.
Lovely place with a stunning view
In September 2003 we stayed for 2 nights in the Bumbleberry Inn. Just by chance, we liked the look of it when passing it on the road. We were pleasantly surprised by the large, clean and quiet room with balcony.
The view of the mountains was simply breathtaking. The breakfast menu showed several bumbleberry dishes, which we enjoyed. We can recommend this friendly hotel to anyone.
We had a wonderful stay!! The rooms were Clean and the people who works there was very helpful. They are quite and the views are wonderful.
A restfull place
I have been coming to Zion National Park for years now. Bumbleberry Inn is my choice of motels. It is quiet, clean and comfortable. I enjoy sitting out on the balconies and watching the beautiful sunsets against the mountains of Zion. There is plenty of room to move around and since it sits back of the highway it is very quiet. The pool is large and refreshing, especially after a long hike. I highly reccomend the Bumbleberry Motel.
Convenient location, decent room
I stayed here for 6 nights in June 2003. The room was average, nothing fancy. I was in the back building which appeared to be a no-smoking building and maybe newer than the other building. My room had a great view of a mountain. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of shops, restaurants, a little grocery store and laundry, and the town shuttle stop is right there. The worst thing was that the office closes for about 12 hours every night. One night I locked myself out of my room and had to wait nearly an hour for someone to show up with a key.
the hotel has bugs almost everywhere.you don't get a nice view of the canyon.the pool is dirty.the sprinklers are on all night.there is no micorwave or frigartor in the room.DO NOT COME HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bad impression in Utah
In May 2003, we stayed at the Bumbleberry for one night. Our room had an unpleasant odor of stale smoke and pets. There were hairs on the bathroom floor and it was not clean. The carpet, which was filthy, had not been vacuumed. The pool and hot tub closed before 9 PM at which time the entire motel closed. That is, all employess left. There was no one in attendance. Keys for late arrivals were taped to the front door. There was no tissue in our room. In addition the hotel was noisy and immediately upon entering there was a bad odor.

We headed to collect our car for our road trip and of course the car pick up never went smoothly, with a slight disagreement with the car agent trying to charge us for an extra driver. Luckily I am well organised and I had emailed the company before we left and checked out about the extra driver and had printed out the email response just in case. …
Zion - Is a Hebrew word meaning 'A place of peace and relaxation' Given to it by Mormon Pioneers in the 1860's. With soaring red and white cliffs it is seen from the Valley floor, unlike Bryce which is viewed looking down, everything in Zion is seen looking up. The Canyon follows the Virgin River and the lush vegetation and its lower elevation …
By far, the best day yet! What I didn't mention in yesterday's blog was that Jeanne and I rented gear to hike The Narrows today. Water shoes, water socks, dry pants and a hiking stick. We felt like real hikers now! We started the day with breakfast at MeMe's Cafe....ham and cheese omelet and cinnamon waffles were an excellent base for our adventure. Back to the room to put on our gear and hop on the shuttle. The dry pants were pretty cool. Tight rubber cuffs snap around your ...
... still comfortably warm. Very majestic views again with spires and very colorful limestone formationsTraveled further to the highest point at 9000 ft called Rainbow Point. Huge panoramic view with again different limestone cliffs and formations.The national parks are very well presented with ample parking and footpaths, interesting that cliff edges are generally open and the specific lookouts are ...
... in the shade and we could put hats and washers into the running creeks to cool down. An ice-cream and shoeless run around on the cool grass lawn outside Zion Lodge was a nice way to finish.
The girls enjoyed a 10min swim before dinner and we ate a nice meal at the Spotted Dog on an outside table enjoying the sunset and seeing the pink and white shades of the sandstone mountains come to life.
Cheers, the ...
