This hotel was great for visiting the surrounding parks. We stayed here 4 nights and apart from the airconditioner/heater being noisy it was an awesome room. The beds were super comfortable, water pressure in the walkin shower great and the room was large. Perfect for a long stay. Will definitely stay again!

Hotel's Favourite
I’m used to being disappointed and overcharged when booking rooms close to national parks, However I was very impressed with the rooms at Best Western East Zion Thunderbird Lodge. My very large room (rm 209) had a king size bed, Small kitchenette with table, two relaxing chairs and a balcony. The bathroom has a separate waterfall shower and a beautiful tub. The room was very well-maintained and looked like it was recently updated. I can’t say enough of how beautiful and spacious it was. I consider the room to be a little pricey ($179 with taxes) but was well worth the money. Oh by the way it’s only 12 miles from Zion national Park.

Everyone at the Thunderbird Lodge is so friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and well maintained. The location is perfect, not far from the entrance to Zions, golf, ATV trails, hikes, caves, sand dunes and more. There is so much to do. I love coming back to the Thunderbird after a long day of adventure to soak in the outdoor hot tub. The management and staff really make this place extra special. Gordon and his team do a great job making you feel right at home! We stay here a couple of times each year and we have a great experience every time.

Nice, clean, comfortable rooms. Good location to visit ZNP & Bryce Canyon NP. No continental breakfast provided. Limited check in hours. Nice and helpful staff. Wish the hot tub was hot and ready to use, it would have been nice to use after day of hiking. Loved the gifts shops, convenient stores within walking distance.

The people and atmosphere were awesome!!! The room was great, had a pine log rustic decor, nice outdoor sitting area facing the pool. The restaurant also had a rustic decor, fun and interesting. We love the backstory about how the hotel and restaurant were founded and the “Ho-Made Pies”. The only downside was that the food was average and a bit overpriced. We would stay there again.
