There are less expensive options nearby, but the location is the attraction. Tucked half way up Zion Canyon Scenic Drive, you are closer to the action. A nice hike to Emerald Pools is right across the street. And you are one or two shuttle bus stops - private vehicles not allowed on this road - away from the most popular hikes in the park - Angels Landing, Hidden Canyon, and our favorite, The Canyon Overlook and Echo canyon. A perfect afternoon after a strenuous hike, is the shuttle to the end of the road and a hike along the river back to Big Bend or Weeping Rock shuttle stop, with a stop at Menu Falls. A walk on a clear night after dark across the road to the bridge over the Virgin River allows the full impact of the night sky.
The rooms are large and comfortable with Mission style furniture, big screen TV (which we did not use) and nice decks with rocking chairs. The king beds are comfortable with a surplus of pillows in various firmness...that is a plus in my book.
The internet service is excellent, but our cell coverage was one bar at best.
Our only complaint was the sound proofing...noisy plumbing made one aware of the neighbors shower schedule, and cliff side rooms (we had parking lot views) may be quieter when the really early risers are yacking on the sidewalk. I am a light sleeper and used earplugs every night.
The lodge restaurant is pretty good, with a fairly diverse menu and a good salad bar, which was more than enough for us on several evenings. We ate dinner in Springdale at several fantastic places about half the time (we were there 7 days).
The Coffee Shop is not so good - we tried it once for breakfast and had stale bagels and machine coffee -- get a cooler and buy fresh made muffins at Sol Foods in Springdale -- there is a coffee maker in room and you can eat on your deck with the birds. (You can also add a local beer or two for after hike relaxation on the deck.)
They have a very friendly and helpful staff - some very knowledgeable about the area who will help you find off the beaten path hikes (with nearly 3 million visitors every year most trails are very busy) and the rock art that the park service will not tell you about. They are also trying to be eco friendly, with recycle bins in every room and on every path. They are one of the few places we have stayed where if you hang up your towels they will actually allow you to reuse them.
