Zion Lodge is the only hotel in Zion National Park. Located in the heart of Zion Canyon, this historic lodge is a terrific place to stay, but it’s often booked months in advance—especially during the busy summer months.
If Zion Lodge is booked, consider some of the great hotels and bed and breakfasts just outside the park. Zion’s South Entrance (the closest entrance to Zion Canyon) is located next to the small town of Springdale, which is home to over a dozen hotels. A few minutes down the road is the small town of Rockville, which has a handful of hotels and B&Bs.
The town of Virgin, located 14 miles from Zion’s South Entrance (25-minute drive), also has a few hotels. And the towns of Hurricane and La Verkin, located 23 miles from South Entrance (35-minute drive), have dozens of lodging options.
Another option is staying near Zion’s East Entrance. There are a handful of places to stay near the eastern boundary of Zion National Park, and additional lodging in the town of Mt. Carmel Junction, located 13 miles (15-minute drive) from Zion’s East Entrance.
