Horrible experience. Called ahead for their "RV Park" - what a joke! It's just a parking lot off the highway, across the street from the best western. Called twice and no one cared to mention there is NO available bathrooms facilities, we were told to go to the RV park a couple miles away to use their showers.... seriously? When...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 April 2017

We were on the road and having problems with the computer systems to get our room booked. Finally Best Western Rewards had us directly connected with the hotel and we got a reservation. When we got there they offered upgrade and it was on the second floor so we declined. Can't imagine the upgrade as the room we had was...

If your are traveling west to Zion National Park or want to visit a number of the Utah parks near the Grand Canyon don't consider anywhere else. Good attitudes by all, large rooms with good light, great restaurant in traditional American cookery, You can even get in 9 holes of golf if you have a slow afternoon. Really outstanding location,...

I recently stayed at the BW Thunderbird Lodge with a group of friends while seeing Utah's Mighty Five National Parks. It is sort of off the beaten path; that is - not on the main entrance road to Zion, but rather the back entrance from Mt. Carmel Junction. And to me, that was the best part! Each day we got...

Easy to find and very friendly staff at the motel which has been family runs for decades. Lovely clean room with patio onto the lawns and swimming pool, with Jacuzzi. Golf course attached and large restaurant with plenty of choice for dinner and breakfast.

NO FREE breakfast served at this Best Western! Prices are little higher than some of the other Best Westerns I've stayed at in the past. Hotel staff was excellent to deal with and the location was not far from Zion National Park.

The room was spacious, nice and clean, we loved the handmade wood log frames around all the furniture, it added a different western charm. Loved our little patio. The bed was SO comfy, and the pillows too. And the shower head felt like we were under a waterfalls, so nice! Receptionist very helpful, even loaned me a travel guide on...

The motel is old but has gone through extensive renovations. The restaurant is open from 7am to 10pm; we found the room (111) to be oversized, nicely furnished with wooden furniture, TV/remote worked as they should, the patio led to the swimming pool and golf course. The beds were large and comfortable and the A/C worked! Absolutely no complaints about...

A slightly older hotel with Native American decor and great gift shop. Quiet, non-smoking rooms and very comfortable beds. Felt really welcomed by staff. Would definitely stay there again. A nice respite from touring the UT national parks.
