Convenient location to see the park
My husband and I stayed one night in one of the west cabins. The cabins look rustic from the outside, but the furnishings were very nice inside. Staying at the lodge allowed us to drive into the park after the parking lots were already full (at 11:30am). We enjoyed the last day of shuttles before they were stopped due to Covid-19, but the second day we were allowed to access all of the park by car, so we were very happy to have the lodge driving permit. The staff was very helpful and could not have been nicer. The main downside was lack of internet throughout the property, which we understood as you are in and surrounded by the park. Also, a mini-fridge in the room would have been nice for water/snacks for hiking. There was a variety of options for dinner, and the breakfast buffet (not included, but reasonably priced) was excellent. It's a little pricey for the room, but worth it for the uniqueness.

Cons outweigh the Pros
Mixed feelings about staying here. The location is idyllic but let down by poor accommodation.
We stayed in a lodge cabin. The cabin itself is rustic but has the basic amenities you need for a stay. Unfortunately the beds are uncomfortable, the cabin was cold and the walls paper thin. You can hear everything from the adjoining cabin, just our luck to have screaming children in the adjoining cabin who stayed up all night, as did we as a result. The onsite restaurant has adequate but pricey food and patchy service. If you do eat there be sure to finish before sundown as the Lodge is poorly lit or have a good torch, it can be confusing with the cabins being identical.
Being within the park allowed us to get a jump start on the trails ahead of the crowds but that was just about the only benefit of staying there. If we go to the area again we'll stay in Springdale and get one of the free buses into the park..

Great location to see the park
Zion lodge is in a great location to see the park. Other accommodations are a ways away in Springdale. The rooms are rustic but comfortable and close to the main lodge.
Food in the lodge is basic and not very fancy. Service in the restaurant is poor and the staff needs to get organized on how to keep track of guests and stop at tables.
Our first morning breakfast there were 5 or 6 staff and just 2 of us in the whole restaurant. One would think one of them could come over and offer service . The just stood around the kitchen. I finally just got up and served my self for coffee.
The staff appears to have no training management on how to serve guests

Enjoyed the cabin
We stayed in one of the historic cabins, with a fireplace. They are small but big enough for your stuff. They also have 2 sink areas, one with a Frig and microwave, coffee maker. The Lodge is not nearly my favorite National Park Lodge as the original burned to the ground and it was rebuilt quickly, without the original character. The lobby area is so dark that it is impossible to read anything unless on your device. We had hoped to sit there in the evening instead of heading straight to the room, but it wasn’t possible.
Great location! Has a restaurant and a coffee shop. The outdoor patio is nice.

Jan 2020..Main building over Cabin
My beau and I drove up from the PHX area and had opportunity to book a cabin. We spent one night and decided to move to main building for a few reasons. A) Wood floors and tile in bathroom were freezing. Even in socks. The was no TV. So if you need it on for white noise to fall asleep pass on cabin. (we thought for sure that after a day of hiking we’d have no problem sleeping- Not the case.) WiFi was weak. The fireplace was a nice touch and re do of the sink area with fridge and micro across from shower and toilet was a bonus. It was too cold to appreciate the cute porch. When we got to main building we were happy to have carpet, tv and a nice porch out back where I saw Deer and birds. The walls floor ceiling are thin so you def can hear noise etc. Overall I’d opt for room in main building. Staff always friendly and didn’t suffocate us. Dinner upstairs was fab. Bison burger was stellar with the sweet potato fries. Kevin and Ian were great! Gave us tips on hikes etc.
