very basic lodging. With Covid even worse accommodations. The plus..you're in the park. Nothing special. Adequate.i have nothing else to say. Shuttle bus stops right at hotel so easy to access. Beautiful surroundings make it worth it

Unique once in a life time . . .
First the Park. STUNNING! Everywhere you turn is a photo op. Thankful for digital technology as would go broke developing the old 35mm film. Brochures, videos, personal experiences do not do it justice. A bucket list item!
Now , the Lodge. We stayed in one of the cabins that was truly a fun experience. No TV, in reality no Internet (more on this later). There were 4 of us and we were forced to talk, laugh, tell jokes, relate old experiences, combine efforts for solving crossword puzzles - refreshing. We never even got to the deck of cards. Unit had mini kitchen - microwave, fridge, coffee pot. Note: stock up on graperies and drinks BEFORE you arrive - no store! Very relaxing and wonderful place to launch from for our daily activities.
Re: Internet. Virtually none. 2 - 5 minutes to download simple pages. Did find that the closer your were to the main lodge area (check-in) the stronger the signal. We 'discovered' the Lodge buildings do have open lobby areas with desks and chairs where you could plug in and get better signal speed. And although still very slow, we would go there to transact daily business. The front desk explanation was that the canyon walls prevented reception but they get TV in the lodge rooms so does not equate. So, DO NOT go there thinking that you will have an opportunity to catch up on your office or business affairs!
In summary - it you are visiting the Park and can swing it (ain't cheap), The Lodge is a must do for at least a couple of nights. To wake up in the morning and be totally immersed in the beautiful surroundings is magical. And forget the car - the free shuttle regularly goes wherever you want to go.

Fall in Zion
Our accommodations at Zion Lodge were comfortable and the staff were helpful. Unfortunately we were awakened at 11pm by loud knocking followed by our door opening. The male voice did not identify himself but when he heard us he said "So sorry" and closed the door and left. On calling the front desk I learned that the room was double booked. I asked if they could not have called instead of sending someone to enter the room. I am still waiting for a reply from the manager and Xanterra.

Vacation at Zion
We stayed in a cabin at the Zion lodge in the park. Positives are that it was extremely convenient to drive in the park and take the shuttle from there. Unfortunately our room wasn’t very clean and the pillows beyond the cases were extremely old. I shouldn’t have looked but they were so thin I had to and was disappointed to see stains. Given Covid I’d think twice before staying here and stay in Springdale instead.

Location, location, location!
We loved our room and patio. This place is right in the middle of the canyon. The food was average at best offering only take-out service due to COVID protocols. Only three choices for dinner and the pasta alfredo was very bland although ample. Hamburger was above average. No bar or lounge because of the pandemic. Rating was based on the lack of imagination with the food service.
