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. …

shuttle sitting there waiting and because we’re the last stop on the route,
there are plenty of seats, so we take one and relax for the 30min trek back. As
we keep making the shuttle stops it’s getting busier and busier and the entire
shuttle is packed full of people standing and being squished in. We get back to
the Visitor Center and walk across the foot bridge again to the other ...
... we hopped off the bus and started a short walk. It was very hot so we were glad we weren't going too far. The walk took us over the Virgin River that runs right through Zion Canyon and up an incline into the Valley.
We got as far as a large amphitheatre of rock, walking underneath the rock and getting cooled nicely by some dripping water coming over its edge.

Everyone loves moon (except one lady who didn't want her off leash because it's against the rules) and she simply reminded me what I don't want to be like (worried about everyone else's business and not my own). It felt good just to ignore her and wave. (Look at all my growth Patty:) ...

Also of note was the sign stating when the town was founded (which is ...
