Very nice hotel room, more than pleasantly surprised

Pleasantly surprised at just how nice this hotel was. Our room was spacious, nicely appointed and very clean. The bathroom had a lovely shower. We would definitely stay here again. I would say we were very disappointed in the restaurant as it has a charming history and seemed to be well regarded in the area. The food was mediocre at best and the famous "ho made pies" were so bad we did not finish the dessert we took back to our room.

This little place is worth it. You can get everything you need from gas, food, and golfing with just a short drive to Bryce Canyon if you like. We love this area and have stayed a lot of places but this will be our next stop again for sure.

Great location close to Zion and Bryce Canyon NPs

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.
