Stayed here based upon TA reviews-- and they were absolutely correct. The hosts, Maureen & Warren, are extremely helpful, the rooms are spotles, the breakfasts are great. What's not to like.?We were traveling with friends from AUSTRALIA , and they couldn't stop complimenting us on this B&B choice for our Zion NP visit.You won't go wrong staying here.

I'm not generally a fan of B&B's - after a long day of travelling I generally prefer the anonymity of a hotel. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by the Desert Thistle. We were looking for a place that would allow dogs. Apparently a five pound toy poodle is too much for many places to accept, and the Zion /...

If you want to be pampered, feel you have just met the most loving family you didn't even know you had and enjoy a beautiful scenery as the sun sets and lights-up the hills, this is the perfect place to stay. That was our experience from the moment we set foot on the Desert Thistle and met Warner and Maureen....

Upon our arrival we were greeted by Maureen with a welcoming hug...I was hooked. When was the last time you were greeted at a resort, hotel or B&B with a hug? The home and property was beautiful. We had the Zion Room with king bed, bathroom and television. My wife and I spent part of the evening sitting around the...

After reading nothing but 5 star reviews for this B & B we chose to stay at the Desert Thistle, just a few minutes away from Zion National Park. What a good decision we made. The B & B is lovely both inside and outside. The views from the dining room and around the pool area are just beautiful. Even...

We should have known a place named after a prickly plant would deliver a less than ideal experience. Though the owners were genuine they have a long way to go to deliver a solid guest experience. The bathroom wasn't fully cleaned including the toilet. The bath towels had Dog hairs all over them. The breakfast was average with Kirkland food...

This was my second stay with Maureen and Warner Edgel at the Desert Thistle. It is rare to find hospitality this rich or hosts as warm as the Edgels! The B&B is beautiful itself and at the base of my favorite national park- Zion Canyon. Maureen's breakfasts are the perfect prelude to a day of hiking in the park. We...

This B&B is only 5 minutes from Zion National Park in southern Utah. Maureen and Warner, the owners, are amazing hosts! And Maureen makes the most delicious and hearty breakfast of any B&B I've ever stayed! The rooms feel like you're home! Beautiful linens, spacious, airy! There is a pool and lovely deck in back. I've been staying here exclusively...

If you are looking for a place to stay around Zion National Park, look no further. The Desert Thistle was the perfect choice for my wife and I when we recently visited southern Utah. We stayed for the whole week and used it as our base to go see some additional parks like the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon on...
