A friend and I went here for breakfast one morning when fishing at Bullfrog. The food and service were great. We also visited the bar in the evening. Jen was newly hired but really knew what she was doing and made us feel right at home. Thanks Jen!

Beautiful views and you can be on the water in minutes. Beds were good and everything was clean. We had Wi-Fi in our 2nd floor room and left the deck door open while in our room to enjoy the perfect temperature. View from the restaurant is gorgeous. Great place for time-lapse photography of the stars from the parking lot or... More

The room was very clean and comfortable, the food was much better than last year, and the new manager and crew are making some noticeable improvements. We were given help more than once by the front desk lady, the service in all areas was better than previous years. Good job!

Clean and comfortable rooms in perfect location for roadtrip from Cortez to Zion Nat Park via the Hovenweep National Monument, West on the 95 then South on the 276 to Bullfrog. The extremely scenic Burr Trail starts just North of the Lodge and then onto the amazing US12. Its well run though even though they don't have much competition. I... More

Defiance Lodge is clean and comfortable. It is rustic and needs a bit of a facelift, but overall, it's better than a lot of motels we've stayed in. The staff is accommodating. There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms, but when you're getting ready to 'camp on the lake,' who needs it anyway? There is Wi-Fi in the lobby for... More

Defiance Lodge, located on Lake Powell, is a wonderful place to relax or pursue boating or jet ski adventures. The extra cost of a lake view is well worth the price. The restaurant has great food and also has fabulous views. WiFi is only located in the lobby and the TV had intermittent reception. A wonderful place to relax.

A clean and comfortable room was very welcome after driving through one of the biggest storms experienced. Air-con was good - not too noisy. No Wi-Fi in rooms which was a bit of a downside (Available in the lobby area). Staff were very helpful in checking the road conditions for our next day journey.

It's been about 10 years since we last stayed at the Defiance House Lodge. The rooms are still in really good condition, though they could use better sound proofing. If someone in a room above you flushed the toilet, you knew it! The staff is friendly and courteous. The Anasazi restaurant is MUCH better than it used to be. In... More

My wife and I went to lake Powell for our anniversary and stayed at Defiance House Lodge for two nights during our week long adventure. The staff, the restaurant, the shuttle drivers from the dock to the Lodge were all very nice and helpful. We truly enjoyed the location and our night there. We would have stayed longer had I... More

Nice clean rooms! Quiet rooms. Great location to lake recreation. Reasonable rates considering its the only option on that side of the lake. If you own an airplane, they have their own private 3500' strip and the hotel will pick you up in their shuttle.........shuttle only runs on 'call'......there is spotty cell phone service. How can a shuttle pick you... More
