How to Get There
We chose this place as a base to visit Zion (including Kolob area), Bryce and Cedar City. Had a two bedroom unit for the five of us which was very nice with two bedrooms and a sofa bed. Two bathrooms. Kitchen, dining and sitting areas. Main lodge has a pool and spa which we did not use but the restaurant was quite good. It was quite cold up there at the end of October but the unit had heaters and gas-type fires in the bedrooms, cosy. It's a Diamond resort and offers cleaning service midweek, which was just fine for us. Underground parking. Bit of a drive to most places but the scenery around there is so beautiful.
We stayed one night en route from Salt Lake City to Zion Park. A little off the beaten path on I-15 but that was a good thing! Our two bedroom two bath suite was clean and spacious. Fireplace and TV in each bedroom, another TV in living room. Kitchen had all the plates, glasses and utensil we could ever wish for (we cooked a great dinner that night...) The indoor pool and two jetted tubs were a nice way to relax after driving all day. Staff was very nice. Keep in mind this is high altitude (9600 ft) so pace yourself when you first arrive and stay hydrated. Nearby vistas in Cedar Breaks Park were impressive.
We came in on our partial cross country 1 year wedding Anniversary road trip.
First Impression: The hotel seemed empty so I asked, because we were celebrating, if they wouldn't mind upgrading us to a nice view or a larger room. (We had been staying several nights in several different hotels and all were happy to enhance our celebration stay in one way or another.) The front desk clerk was not interested in providing anything additional and alerted us that any upgrade of any kind would be $9.00. NINE DOLLARS! We had hotels on our trip giving us hotel suites, highest view floors, free cheesecake, the works, and this hotel wouldn't even give us a 9 dollar upgrade. We ended up paying for the upgrade and got a larger room on our own. Would not recommend for special occasions.
Restaurant: We ordered a late night dinner from the restaurant. I asked about the child size pizza because I wasn't very hungry. I said, "is the small pizza the same dough and ingredients as your flatbreads on the menu or is it a microwave pizza" they said" its the same". I picked it up and it was definitely, if not exactly, a premade/frozen red barron microwave personal pan or something very very similar. I ate it and didn't mind but would have appreciated them being honest. My husband did like his pasta dish.
Room/Bathroom: In room bathroom: shower came out way too fast and was very uncomfortable due to the level of pressure. The bathroom was dimly lit and tub was stained. The room and bathroom overall could use an update. The bedroom had large blinds but no curtains so it was bright in the morning. The room DOES NOT offer air conditioning. Not a big deal as we kept our window open all night, but just a heads up for any summer stays. Our bedroom phone didn't work and neither did the wifi. I also wasn't too fond of seeing the outside exit door propped open after taking the stairs. This was a security risk for all rooms.
Overall Pros: The stay was inexpensive and was not bad for the price. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the sheets and pillows were also comfortable. The woman at the coffee shop was kind and the parking was convenient.
