      Historical Traveler Reviews Desert Pearl Inn Springdale

      Wish we could have stayed longer


      I first read about the Desert Pearl Inn right here on Trip Advisor, and all I can say is what a wonderful, unique motel! The decor was beautifully eclectic and the room was very, very spacious, with all the amenities previously mentioned. We stayed in a first-floor room facing the river and red rocks, with a king bed and queen-sized sleeper sofa and both were very comfortable. The wall facing the river/cliffs was all windows with a door opening onto a large stone terrace with adirondack chairs and trellises draped with flowers. We sat out there one morning drinking our coffee and a hummingbird flitted about the flowers for at least 5 minutes. The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. My son especially liked the VHS movies that could be signed out to view on the VCR in the room (free of charge). My one regret is that we only stayed there for one night--we would have loved to stay longer!

      Relaxation Pure


      We stayed at the Desert Pearl Inn during a 10 day round trip of Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. During this time we stayed in some beautiful places including the Bellagio in Las Vegas. As soon as we checked in to the Desrt Pearl Inn we delt no desire to wander outside the confines of the hotel. We had found our home and sat back to relax at the ppol while looking on the red rock country and then relaxed back into the funky room decor which makes you feel at home rather than in a hotel.We look forward to going back to Zion not for the Park (which is also wonderful) but for the Deser PEarl Inn.



      Came upon the DESERT PEARL website (one of the best ) and decided when we went to ZION, this is where we would rest our heads...and REST we did! Absolutley just loved it here and HATED to leave. Great rooms, view, beds , bath, pool & grounds. Simply the best of all the places we had stayed on our tour of GRAND CIRCLE! I still go back to the web site to enjoy the photos and relive our wonderful stay!



      We found links to this Inn on the web, and based on the reader reivews and the Inn's web site, decided to give it a shot. We stayed here for two nights in late Nov/early December and just loved it. The rooms are pretty much what they look like on the web, though they are a little more 'worn' than what shows on the web. Regardless, we chose a pool view room and it was fabulous -- the views were still incredible, and we loved the big windows, and the balcony with the adirondack chairs where we could take advantage of the breakthtaking view. The room has a small kitchen area with a refrigerator, sink, and mini microwave -- a great bonus. There is a table, couch and sitting area, and there is also a VCR to play free video rentals from the front desk -- nice, as there isn't much to do on a November night in Springdale! The bathroom is two separate rooms -- one with a sink and counter and dresser/closet area, and the other with a shower, toilet and bidet (!). Complimentary shampoo, conditioner and lotion are provided - and they are a nice quality selection. The staff was very friendly, the room clean, the bed comfortable, the views -- magnificent. I think we definitely came at the right time of the year though, as it was very quite and solemn, and a great time to take advantage of the park. We would definitely stay here again.

      Desert Pearl


      In June of 2002 my husband and I came to Springdale on vacation. We were interested in seeing Zion National Park. The first order of business was to find a nice place to stay for the time we would be visiting Zion. I work in a library and I use the Internet constantly in my job, so I was comfortable looking on the Net for a hotel. The best web site I found belonged to the Desert Pearl . It showed the rooms and gave all the neccessary info.The price was right, too. Upon my arrival--I was not disappointed in the rooms at all. They were just as they were pictured--or even better. We stayed there for two nights and we were very sorry to leave.

      Still Dreaming about the Pearl


      We stayed at the Desert Pearl a while back, and I am still dreaming about the place. The setting is gorgeous, the rooms are wonderful, with the most comfortable bed I have slept in, and the service is fantastic. We enjoyed the decor, as it is not the usual hotel look alike by any means. Even the showers were great - I loved the soap! The town is small and quiant, perfect for leisurely shopping and dining, with great local art. Lots of wonderful hiking! We ended up staying as we were passing through the area, but I would actually make it a destination for a vacation!



      We recently experienced our first visit to Zion National Park and to the Desert Pearl Inn. The hotel is wonderful. The service and accommodations are both excellent. The hotel is nestled in one of the most picturesque places in the country, surrounded by giant orange and red monoliths, about 1/2 mile from the entrance to Zion National Park. Access to the park is very simple, via shuttle buses that come through town frequently. There is a shuttle stop 1/2 block from the Desert Pearl Inn. Hiking in the park is superb. There are numerous trails ranging from easy to difficult. There's something for everyone. Breakfast is no problem in town. Try the Bumbleberry Inn for great pancakes. Dinner is a bit tricky. It depends on what you like to eat. The town of Springdale is like a comfortable country village with many shops and stops. If you like being outdoors, walking/hiking and enjoying the richness of the earth, you'll enjoy Zion and the Desert Pearl Inn - I highly recommend this place. Stay a few days, and enjoy the Watchmen's trail - moderately difficult but quite spectacular.

      Home Away From Home


      My family and I have stayed at the Desert Pearl quite frequently over the past two years while I've attended school in St. George. We have fallen in love with the Desert Pearl! It's beautiful, quiet, relaxing - the most peaceful place I can think of. The Desert Pearl captures the natural beauty of Zion so you don't feel like you're in some generic hotel. It is very unique! We've also experienced outstanding service while staying there. One trip we hadn't made reservations in advance and we had to stay somewhere else. Our trip just wasn't the same! Desert Pearl, we love you, miss you, dream of you! We'll be back!


      The Desert Pearl has the most comfortable beds you'll ever sleep in!

      The good


      A few weeks ago, my wife and I wrote a review of our experience at the Desert Pearl Inn, located in Sringdale, UT. At the time, we indicated that our stay at the Desert Pearl Inn was fantastic, but after we checked out, we received an extra charge on our credit card statement for a missing pillow that we had not taken. We had also mentioned that we had repeatedly tried to have the problem corrected but had not received a response from the owners. Since posting that message, we have heard from the owner, Robin Palmer. She informed us that she had not previously heard of our complaint. She immediately reversed the charges on our credit card. We are satisfied with the resolution of this problem and would like to reiterate that the Desert Pearl Inn is by far and away the most attractive and enjoyable hotel that we have ever discovered in the Utah redrock country. It is incredibly refreshing to find huge and artfully decorated rooms that in no way resemble "the motel chain mentality." In addition, the scenic views from virtually ever angle are spectacular.

      The good and the BAD


      My wife and I recently visited Zion National Park and stayed at the Desert Pearl Inn. Our stay was perfect in every respect, until after we had checked out. Then our troubles began. Within a week, we were informed that a pillow was missing from our room and we would be charged $17 on our VISA bill. We immediately contacted the inn and told them that there had been a mistake. We had not taken or lost a pillow. Jennifer, the front desk manager, said she would check on the problem and get back with us. She didn't contact us, so we were forced to contact her, again. She told us that their records were reliable and a pillow was missing. We told her that her records were not reliable in this case, because we had not taken or lost a pillow. We then asked her what could be done to correct the situation. She said that nothing could be done and that we would be charged for the pillow. We then wrote a letter to the owners, Kent and Robin Palmer, explaining the situation and asking them to clear up the problem. They have never responded to our letter. This is too bad, because we had really enjoyed our stay at the inn and were planning to return on several occasions. Now all we can do is warn people to beware of staying at this inn. If you decide to take a chance and stay anyway, we would highly recommend that upon arrival and departure, you require the manager to accompany you to your room and count the pillows in your presence. You may even want to get a signed statement as to the number of pillows in the room. While you're at it, maybe you should require that all items be counted in your presence, because you never know what they might claim is missing--maybe even the bed or possibly the bidet!!! We know this sounds ridiculous, but otherwise you may see extra charges on your credit card after you leave this inn. You've been warned!

      This morning we started the day at The Narrows. We took the shuttle from the beginning point of the park to the last stop where the hike begins. It's about a mile on land and then you enter the Virgin River where you continue walking through the water. It is slippery and rocky and COLD. I happily had my new walking sticks which helped me very much …

      Leaving the gaping hole that is the Grand Canyon, and the howling wind that comes with it, we head back into Utah for our next, and last, National Park - the mighty Zion NP. We arrive driving deep into a valley surrounded by towering craggy cliffs, large slides of slick rock, sandstone and stumpy trees. This park is notorious as a danger zone with …

      The sun is gently setting over the top of the rocks as we are coming to the end of our fourth day of our American tour.
      It started on Sunday with a pretty long flight to Las Vegas, 10+ hours. By the time we collected our luggage and hire-car and drove to the hotel it was past 10pm local time and we were like zombies.

      4/23/14 Again our number didn’t come up for the Wave. So we
