Cable Mountain Lodge
This low rise hotel has been built to blend in with the terracotta canyon backdrop. Predominantly constructed from wood and stone and set in landscaped lawns, the wonderful scenery starts right at the hotel. Enjoy barbecues on the banks of the Virgin River, or simply relax by the large outdoor pool surrounded by dramatic cliff scenery.
Located next to Zion National Park Visitor Centre in Canyon Village, the lodge makes a comfortable and convenient place to start your exploration. With spacious rooms, great facilities and local amenities close by, the hotel is a very popular choice.
The hotel offers eight different studio and suite types. The characterful rooms are decorated in natural, warm hues and feature handcrafted furnishings. Amenities within each room include a flat screen TV, Wi-Fi access and a kitchenette featuring a fridge, microwave and coffee maker.
Studio rooms are located on the ground floor and offer king, queen or twin beds. The more spacious suites offer pool, park or courtyard views from their private patios or balconies, and a king sized bed in the main bedroom. Their separate living areas have sofa beds for additional guests, and the Judy Ann Suite has a dining table, fireplace and jetted bath tub.
Cable Mountain Lodge enjoys an envious position in Zion Canyon Village, just steps away from the entrance to Zion National Park, which is accessed via a footbridge. The property is surrounded by soaring sandstone cliffs and is within easy walking distance of the village’s restaurants, IMAX theatre, grocery store, art gallery and gift shop.
Food and Drink
This is a self-catering property, with a convenience store located on site where you can pick up supplies for preparing meals in your room, or snacks to take with you when exploring the park. Complimentary gas barbecues are also available along the banks of the Virgin River, along with picnic tables and lounge chairs. If you’d prefer not to self-cater, there’s a selection of dining options in Canyon Village.
All of the suites feature a sofa bed to accommodate additional guests, making these the best option for families.
Facilities and Activities
Facilities at Cable Mountain Lodge include a seasonal outdoor pool offering views across the canyon and Virgin River, and a heated spa. The park's shuttle bus picks up from the visitor centre, and makes regular stops at the main sites, beauty spots and activity centres.
We like this lodge for its spacious rooms, proximity to the park entrance and its uninterrupted views of the surrounding red rock landscape. You get the feeling of staying inside the national park, without the price tag.
