One of the great hotels of the national park in the summer, a bit less so in winter.
Listed among historic hotels, and rightfully so. A big positive is the relative tranquility and solitude in winter. No crowds in the gift shop, no reservations needed for dinner, simple walks in nature. That quietude is your admission price for a much less energizing or dynamic environment. Take your pick (or choose both if you are lucky enough to be able to do so) One of the great attractions of the great national are the lobbies, and in that regard Zion falls short. Although large windows look out to the valley there is very little seating to enjoy the view. And the patio, which offers light fare in the summer and good viewing, is obviously closed so that option is out. The hotel and cabins are available, as they are in summer, so room choice is good. The cabins have wonderful gas fireplaces that warm the room quickly and provide equally warm ambiance. Note that some of the parks trails and attractions are closed in the winter, so if you have something specific to do (like the Narrows) then consider another time of year. Lots of options for eating in Springdale just outside the park entrance if the restaurant in the lodge isn't for you (but it is good, particularly for breakfast). Plenty of free parking and lots of same in the trail lots and attractions.

Loved staying at the Zion National Park Lodge! Friendly staff. Great restaurant! Winter is the best time to visit Zion and the Lodge offers some awesome deals during that time!
Cabins are really nice! They have a fireplace that gives a special feel to the stay 😊 Each has a bathroom as well as a separate little room with sink, fridge, clothes hanging, coffee machine etc. Cool!

Did the trick
We had a our minds set on visiting and hiking Zion Cayon, and this hotel appeared to be best located to reach this point, and the best priced also, although not cheap per se. We booked via orbitz, arrived early and the room was ready so was able to enter ready. We had dinner at the restaurant on site the first time, very warm service, adn pretty good food. If your aim is to hike, this is the perfect spot.

Awesome views and hikes.
Angels landing at dawn was amazing.
Cabin is tired and the double bed is small.
Bedding is old.
Gas fire was good in the eve.
The roadworks outside were noisy and started early and finished late - spoiled the point of staying there rather than Springfield.
Dinner in restaurant was good.

Great location for a three-night stay in November
Zion lodge is close to restaurants, gift shop, and shuttle bus stop. My family enjoyed staying and relaxing in the park. The buffet breakfast was good and the staffs and services were great. We had steaks and trout for dinner and they were also good.
We rented gears and hiked the Narrows and it was a memorable fun adventure! We hiked the Angels Landing on the 2nd day and the Observation Point on the 3rd day.
The views from the peaks were very rewarding. The heater in our lodge room was too loud to stay asleep so we turned it off. The in-room internet was very limited and super slow. I gave 4 stars for the lodge location and 3 stars for the front desk service as on our first night entering our lodge room around 8:00pm, there were only two queen beds and three sets of towels for my reservation of 5 guests. We called the front desk and were asked to pay an extra of $12 for a "last" roll away based on their policy.
This issue was resolved upon our check-out. But the check-in experience was not impressive.
