This hotel is showing its age and the rooms could use with an update or even a complete remodel. The restaurant food was just okay. The grounds are beautiful with a...

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...

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....
