This hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was very spacious and clean. The bathroom looked as though it had recently been updated. About 25 min to Zion NP and about 1 hr to Bryce Canyon NP. The restaurant was good as well. They mostly had classic American diner food but they also had a vegetarian menu which was unexpected but great for my girlfriend. We would definitely plan to stay here again.

We stayed at the Thunderbird Lodge one night between visiting Bryce and Zion. It was a great location, restaurant on site was decent. We were able to do laundry and the pool was nice. Room was clean and the general store had supplies we needed.

Stayed in single story section. Large room looked very nice, comfortable beds, internet ok, great toiletries, friendly & helpful staff, walk-in shower w/2 shower heads (overhead & handheld), lots of windows, onsite laundry ($1.50 to wash, $1.50 to dry). However, shower has a long slit instead of a typical drain & it drained very slowly, windows don't open, fridge kept hotel-supplied ice solid for 2 days on bottom shelf but didn’t keep our cooler's freezer pack frozen on top shelf (had frost on back wall, so assumed it would be coldest area; fridge doesn't really have a freezer area), walls are thin (heard neighbor blowing noise & their water flowing in pipes), being close to a junction led to hearing traffic on Hwy 9 especially as it slowed down and speed up from junction, cold-water setting on clothes washer with a full load cycle was only 27 minutes (my clothes didn’t get completely clean; they weren’t that dirty to begin with). I was told the hotel was full, but from the number of cars, it seems like they were not actually at capacity. Rather, it seems like they probably don’t have staff to clean all the rooms, so only some were rented. Therefore, it was annoying that we had immediate neighbors. It would have been nice if we were spaced out every other room. The hotel was clearly understaffed, which was a common theme throughout the trip around Utah (at hotels and restaurants). During the trip, we visited 3 national parks and other areas, and stayed at 6 different hotels.

Awesome Gem

So, when I booked this place I was clueless as to what to expect. I didnt have much expectation actually. After our day in zion we were hangars. Luckily there is a restaurant here on site. Thunk classic diner with HO-MADE PIES. OF COURSE the meatloaf was the special which I ordered ND husband got the ribs. ✋️ down meatloaf killed it!! Along with mashed and gravy and vege. THE the Ho-made pies. Coconut cream and Thunderberry to go for breakfast. AND..they had scones( which were pretty much bignets Home made as well. Served with honey butter. They were to go as well for coffee in a.m. I thinks it's just so crazy to find such a gem of a place. It has it's history on the menu. Go here if you are in the are. Also the hotel has a lovely 9 hole golf course. Just fabulous. They do have staffing shortages(that's why the to go ) closed for breakfast wed and thurs) The pool and hot tub are nice touch too. Very clean. Totally 5 stars.
