A perfect place after a day of hiking at Bryce and Zion National parks. One of a kind furniture make your experience unique and memorable. Size and cleanliness of the room #100 meet our expectations. Staff is friendly and helpful.We will recommend this place to anyone who would like to visit national parks or just get away.

My wife and I had intended to spend our five nights in the Bryce/Zion area in St. George, but once we realized the distance from St. George to Bryce, we decided to seek a reservation to stay in Mount Carmel. We found the Best Western East Zion Thunderbird Lodge, and they had a room for us. This motel was very... More

While the hotel didn't look like much from the outside, we were extremely happy with the quality of the room, cleanliness, and SIZE. Very, very large room. Great value for the money. Location was fine for visiting Zion. Skipped Springdale to save money, and happy we did. The restaurant is very good. Pies were excellent.

Amazed at the price for a large, clean room with two queen beds. May have been off season rates didn't ask- $110 including tax. Would definitely stay again should that be a stopping point when traveling in the area. Did not eat in the restaurant.

After all day exploration of Zion, we were definitely looking forward to relaxing a BW East Zion, which we chose based on our travel itinerary in Southern Utah. We were greeted at check-in, with a sign saying the hotel has no water. No water in rooms, no water in restaurant. Bathroom facility was arranged with gas station across the street.... More

Short driving time to Zion & Bryce National Park. Nearby convenient stores are available if u need quick breakfast as breakfast in their restaurant doesn't come cheap. Room is clean. No microwave. Wanted to chill my drinks, fridge is available but not working. No ice in ice machine either. Other than that, still a pleasant stay.

This was a spur of the moment walk in stay. The hotel was spotlessly clean, Check-in was very efficient with friendly service. Their lobby, rooms, and restaurant had unique historical, and authentic decor representing the characteristics of the area. We have already recommended this hotel to other travelers we met in the days following our stay, who were heading through... More

We stayed the night before our trip to Zion national park. This hotel is simple in style but has all you need and has an elegant country style decor. The rooms are motel style but inside very nice. Has backdoors for easy access to laundry, restaurant, etc. The bed and air conditioning were nice. The furniture was nice and ample.... More
