Bottom Line

The 50-room Cable Mountain Lodge is a four-pearl property that offers classy and spacious lodge-style rooms and suites just a brief walk from Zion National Park’s entrance and shuttles. Rooms are upscale and attractively rustic in style; even Studios offer nice extras including coffeemakers, microwaves, and mini-fridges. Suites are especially spacious with roomy full kitchens plus living and dining space. All rooms have free Wi-Fi. The surrounding village has plenty of dining and entertainment options, including a brew pub, an outdoor pool with mountain views, and a movie theater. While restaurants surround the lodge, it offers no on-site breakfast option, and there are no elevators to second-floor units. Also note, the lodge is often sold out during peak seasons. One comparable option is the Cliffrose Lodge & Gardens, just a four-minute walk away.

Upscale lodge in a spectacular setting

The 50 units of this sprawling, rustic lodge complex have private entries, spreading activity throughout the property. The spacious, bright, and open lobby is inviting, with a sandstone wall behind the wood front desk; reddish, natural stone tile flooring; and lots of dark wood framing doors and the large windows. Comfortable white sofas and armchairs are arranged in clusters throughout the space. If there's a center of activity on this property, it’s the outdoor pool and hot tub area where guests enjoy great views of the surrounding red rocks and unwind after exploring the spectacular Zion area. The brew pub in the surrounding village complex also sees lots of activity later in the day, as does the gift shop, food market, outfitter, and movie theater. This is a welcoming and classy property buzzing with hikers, families, and others eagerly anticipating their next adventure in the great outdoors.


A brief walk or shuttle to Zion National Park entrance

The lodge offers the closest accommodations to the South Entrance of Zion National Park, just a four-minute walk away. A free shuttle that takes visitors throughout the park is just a footbridge over the Virgin River that abuts the rear of the lodge, and can be reached in less than a two-minute walk. The lodge is part of Zion Canyon Village that includes a giant-screen theater, brew pub, food market, outdoors outfitter, gift shop, and restaurants surrounding the property, making all village attractions a very brief walk of three minutes or less. Downtown Springdale is approximately one mile away, about three minutes by car or via the free shuttle the lodge operates. In downtown, there is a supermarket and other shops and restaurants. The Obert C. Tanner Amphitheater is about four minutes by car, and the Zion Visitors Bureau office is about a six-minute drive. McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas is about a three-hour drive, and Salt Lake City International Airport is about four and a half hours by car.


Spacious rooms with tasteful, lodge-style furnishings

Rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, and upscale in a rustic, lodge-style fashion. Decor features extensive use of rich, natural wood in doors, window frames, headboards, and furniture including dressers and nightstands. Bedroom carpets are pleasant and neutral; walls are painted cream with a few deep red accent walls in certain rooms; and white linens are accented with a patterned coverlet in earth tones. Bedrooms have antique-style desks with upholstered chairs and 37-inch flat-screen TVs. Studios have queen or king beds and granite-top counters with microwaves and mini-fridges as well as coffeemakers on top. Suites have kitchens with full-size fridges, microwaves, stove tops, dishwashers, sinks, coffeemakers, and dishware. They also have separate sitting areas with a second flat-screen TV, queen sleeper sofas, armchairs, and wood dining tables with four chairs. One large, open space with quality hardwood floors houses the kitchen, living area, and dining space. Suites also have either a small patio or balcony; some suites include queen Murphy beds, while the Judy Ann Suite adds a jet tub and fireplace. Bathrooms are roomy but not overly large, and all have nice hardwood floors and spacious, tan granite vanities with large wall mirrors. The same granite frames rainfall shower/tub combos. Rooms on the second floor tend to offer the best views of the surrounding mountains, but there are no elevators to reach this floor. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans are provided in all rooms, and there is free Wi-Fi. 


Free shuttles, heated pool, surrounding village with restaurants, sandy beach on the Virgin River, and free Wi-Fi

This mountain property offers a few nice freebies, including parking, a shuttle throughout Zion National Park, drinks including coffee in the lobby, and free Wi-Fi. There is no lodge-provided breakfast, but the surrounding village has a coffee shop and other restaurants that provide food and drink throughout the day. The village also includes a brew pub, a market (with various frozen foods, beverages, sandwiches, and other prepared foods), a gift shop, an outfitter that sells and rents bicycles and hiking gear, and a giant-screen, IMAX-style theater. The lodge offers a heated outdoor pool and whirlpool with lovely views of the surrounding red rock mountains. A small, sandy beach area on the Virgin River abuts the rear of the lodge complex. It has lounge chairs, picnic tables, and a gas grill. The front desk is staffed 24 hours, and a business center has two computer stations with Internet access and printer. Meeting space for up to 50 people is available. There are self-serve laundry facilities, vending machines, and an ATM as well.
