Hotels Near Canyonlands Needles

You can visit Needles Canyonlands and stay in Moab, and most people do that. The town of Monticello is a bit closer to Needles, but the lodging, food and shopping options aren’t as good. It’s a much smaller town than Moab. We recommend the Spanish Valley area south of Moab if you plan to visit the Needles district.

hotels near Zion National Park

Hotels Near Zion National Park

There is one lodge and three campgrounds in the Zion National Park boundaries.

Zion Lodge – Staying at the Zion Lodge is something we recommend. When the Zion National Park shuttle is in service, Zion Lodge guests can drive their own vehicle into the canyon which is so nice! It’s located three miles north along the Zion Canyon scenic drive. It has motel rooms, cabins, and suites as well as a gift shop and post office. However, rooms do fill up quickly so reservations are highly recommended.

You’ll find a variety of accommodation options near the park like hotels, resorts, vacation rentals, glamping, RV park and campgrounds.

If you’ll be visiting Zion AND Bryce Canyon, here’s a list of places between the two parks to make travel time easier!

We recommend hotels near Zion National Park located in the town of Springdale if you don’t stay in the park.

It’s right outside the entrance to Zion which makes it easy to optimize early and late visits to the park without the drive or need to pay for parking at Zion National Park!

You may find hotels in Hurricane with better prices for lodging. But it’s about a 25 minute drive to Zion and you’ll need to worry about the hassle of parking and riding the Zion National Park shuttle to the park entrance. We don’t feel that extra hassle is worth the lower hotel rates.
