Not grand, just great
The Bumbleberry Inn was the perfect hotel for what myself, my wife and my 10-year-old daughter wanted in a hotel near Zion - small, affordable, centrally located, clean, with a pool, a nice gift shop, and a view. We did not want a great big, high $$$, 5-star, room service, white glove resort, a B&B, nor a small chain motel. We arrived just before 3 and got a second-story room overlooking the pool my daughter could not wait to dive into. The pool was clean, warm, uncrowded and ready to go. My wife and I took turns unpacking, looking over the child, and talking back and forth. The hotel has 48 rooms (by my count) housed in two rectangle buildings. The second story rooms offer slightly better views, but the downstairs parking lot level rooms are right next to your car and would be good for people who either wanted to keep an eye on their rig, or be able to toss belongings quickly into a room without walking at all. The 'back' building, especially the east-facing rooms, would offer a lot more privacy with equally nice views. The room was hotel basic, yet very clean with a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. After going through Zion, we did not get back to Springdale until almost midnight and the only restaurant open was the one street-side in front of our hotel, Wildcat Willies, and whipped up some excellent pizzas. The Bumbleberry Margarita - complete with sugar on the rim, was pretty good too. After the late dinner we stumbleberried back to our room for a good night's sleep. The only small grouse I had was that WiFi did not work on our computer, so I had to haul the laptop to the lobby for the 15 minutes or so of work I needed to do. Even so, we all loved our stay there and vowed to return.
