Zo, en dan zit het volgende park er alweer bijna op. Waren we vanmorgen nog in Bryce, vandaag hebben we al een stuk van Zion gezien.
We zijn weer op tijd weggereden uit Bryce en na bijna 2 uur rijden kwamen we bij Zion aan, waar we na een bezoek aan het Visitor Center (zo handig bij elk park) gelijk de shuttlebus indoken. Dat is hier namelijk …
Day 2 began with an early start. Donna and Lindsay had contacted me last night to say that the car broke down in Death Valley and that they were running a day behind but hoped to be in Zion by really late tonight.
I decided not to waste a day and went into the park myself. Using my National Park book I planned some of the hikes I wanted to …
Day one began at 1 a.m. so I could drive to the Wilkes-Barre airport to catch my first flight. Needless to say I was already tired! I got to the airport and the place was practically deserted. There was no one behind the counter at the departures desk and the automatic machine did not like my booking number, I attempted to use to phone near it to …
Zion National Park Drove into the park late arvo (narrowly avoiding a snake on the road), too late for the tourist info place, which was a blessing in disguise, as we decided to pop into the Zion Adventure Centre, where a nice chap named Nick talked to us about Canyoneering - hiking / repeling (abseiling) and wading through water in the canyons. …
... Wall, along the river, and other places. I watched people bustling by, and I just absorbed. The quiet and the power of what surrounds you is really something. We saw a buck with a huge rack, a mama doe and her two fawns, mule deer, condors, and bighorn sheep. This place is super busy. Lots of European and Asian tourists. Not so many families of course. This is a hiker's paradise. We saw hikers way up on the crests of the highest rock ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bumbleberry Inn Springdale
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.
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.
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.
