We’ve stayed at hotels in Springdale, Virgin, La Verkin and Hurricane throughout separate trips to Zion in October 2019 and December 2021. We also spent a night at Zion Watchman Campground and Zion Lodge, so we’ve got a lot of hotel experience in the area. Read more about us.

In La Verkin, we stayed at the cheap and cheerful Hotel Zion Inn for one night in October 2019 when we were traveling on a low budget. And we spent a night at the La Quinta in December 2021 after visiting the Kolob Canyon region of Zion.

Is La Verkin A Good Place To Stay For Zion?

La Verkin, Utah is a less convenient but cheaper place to stay for visiting Zion National Park. It’s great if you’re trying to do Zion on a low budget or you want a place to stay near Kolob Canyons. La Verkin has a handful of excellent restaurants including River Rock Roasting Company, Stage Coach Grille and El Rancho so you’ll have quality food options available.

Springdale is the obvious alternative to La Verkin when choosing a hotel near Zion. It’s closer to the park’s main hikes and it’s a livelier town with a much greater selection of restaurants when compared to La Verkin.

Virgin has the most remote and unique places to stay near Zion, including luxury glamping tents and converted caravans, but they’re typically much more expensive.

Unexpected Benefits

Zion is amazing, but it isn’t the only thing to do in southwest Utah!

Another major benefit to staying at a hotel in La Verkin instead of Springdale is that you’d be located much closer to several underrated natural landscapes in the region including:

La Verkin is also easier to access from Las Vegas and Salt Lake City because it’s closer to I-15. This means La Verkin is not only cheaper but also more convenient logistically for either the night before or after visiting Zion.

Our Verdict

Hotels in La Verkin, Utah are cheaper than any other place you can stay near Zion National Park. But there are fewer hotel options and it’s a 30 minute drive from La Verkin to Zion’s main canyon and visitor center. It’s a good option if you’re visiting Zion on a tight budget.

Hotel Zion Inn is the cheapest place you can stay in La Verkin. La Quinta and Best Western Plus offer affordable hotel chain options with breakfast included. Zion’s Camp and Cottages is a unique and highly rated lodging option, and The Dwellings is the most luxurious place you can stay. The two new apartments could be perfect for families or larger groups.

We stayed at La Quinta after spending a day hiking in the Kolob Canyon region of Zion. It worked for our budget and it had breakfast included, which set us up nicely before visiting Coral Pink Sand Dunes on the way to Kanab, Utah.
