The location of this hotel is very good, as it is at the junction of the roads going to Zion and Bryce National Parks if coming up from the Grand Canyon South rim.

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.
