There are plenty of reasons to plan a visit to Springdale, Utah. Of course, the most popular reason is to visit Zion National Park. This stunning national park is located directly adjacent to Springdale, making nearby hotels and Zion vacation rentals in town the perfect base camp for exploring the park.

Zion isn’t the only attraction that Springdale has to offer. The town itself is full of art galleries, shops, and plenty of delicious restaurants. There are also tons of amazing day trips you can enjoy during your stay, such as Bryce Canyon National Park and a variety of Utah state parks.

But before you can start planning your trip, you need to choose from the many places to stay in Springdale. Where you opt to stay can have a big impact on your visit. We may be a little biased when we say that The Bungalows at Zion is the perfect place for your Zion stay. But don’t just take our word for it! Keep reading to learn what you need to consider to choose the best places to stay in Springdale.

Consider Your Location

The most important factor to consider when choosing the best places to stay in Springdale is its proximity to the park entrance. Staying closer to the entrance of Zion National Park can significantly reduce travel time, allowing you to make the most of your visit. 

One mistake first-time visitors to the area make is booking lodging in other nearby towns and cities, like St. George, Hurricane, and La Verkin. But while these may be a short drive away, after driving to Springdale, you’ll have to find parking. On busy days, this can be a big challenge. But when you book Zion vacation rentals in Springdale, you can take advantage of the Springdale Shuttle System

Leave your vehicle parked at your vacation rental and hop on the shuttle. This will take you just outside the entrance to Zion. From there, you’ll pay your entrance fee or present your valid national park annual pass, then enter the park and hop on the Zion Canyon Shuttle, which will take you to many of the most popular trailheads and overlooks in the park.

Check Out Different Types of Accommodations

The range of accommodation types near Zion National Park caters to different preferences and budgets. Whether you’re looking for luxurious resorts, cozy cabins, or budget-friendly motels, you’ll find something that suits your needs.
