We stayed here for 4 nights while we hiked in Zion National Park during each day. We found the owner to be pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and provided what we needed, including a good-sized refrigerator, king-size bed, and private bathroom. Breakfast is provided by a voucher for Oscar's restaurant in Springdale (4 miles away and near Zion),...

We enjoyed a couple of days here. The home is beautiful with amazing views. Maureen and her dogs were very sweet. Our room was very lovely. The bed was so soft and made for a relaxing retreat after spending our days hiking through Zion. Maureen gave us great recommendations for food.

What more can I say. We absolutely loved this place. Stayed here 3 nights at the every end of September. Only a 20 min drive to Zion National Park. Minutes from great food and shopping in Springdale. Absolutely fantastic views from the back deck/pool. I sat out there for an hour every morning before we started our journey. Maureen and...

very warm welcome from Maureen, the owner, Feeling at home right away. Spacious room with good bed, aircondition, WiFi, clean bathroom. Enjoyed the nice pool and Patio, watching stars in the evening. Instead of breakfast at the B&B you get a voucher for a Springdale cafe, which actually is a good idea as it gives you a larger selection. Maureen...

Spent three nights in this lovely B&B. Maureen greeted us upon arrival with a beautiful smile and big hugs. Rooms are very clean and spacious with wonderful surroundings. Home is beautifully decorated and Maureen makes you feel like part of the family. The breakfast voucher system was excellent.

We arrived at the Desert Thistle after midnight after a long drive from Las Vegas. We had warned Maureen that we would be late, but this was much later than we had expected (took forever to get our rental car). Maureen was waiting for us and had hugs for us both, in spite of the lateness of the hour. When...

We found the Desert Thistle at the last minute and couldn't have been happier. Maureen is SO warm and welcoming and makes you feel like you've known her forever. Our room was very clean and very comfortable. We stayed two nights and if we had had a little more time in Zion, we would have taken advantage of the pool...

Our group of friends stayed at Deser Thistle four nights. We reserved 4 rooms and each and every one was roomy, well stocked, cleaned, and ready for us upon arrival. Each room had a king size bed. The patio, the living room and the tea room are large and set up for large groups. This was a perfect situation for...
