I have seen a few other reviews saying the same. The room furnishings are pretty tired and dated. The room is sparses furnished for the saize of the room. The restuarant was ok. The staff were friendly. It just needs a big maekover. And yes we all had problems with the keys as well.

Stayed here for one night and not impressed. Hotel dated and the food pretty poor. They do a packed lunch for $16 which was really poor value. I did not really get this place, the bar was the only thing that I thought that was ok. The bar staff were really helpful and I would recommend them. The rooms are... More

1) The key to your room won't work. Get someone from the front desk to help you. She is already down the hall helping another guest with the same problem. 2) No furniture in your room but the bed. Space for it, but no couch or chair. Eat your pizza on the bed. 3) Housekeeping is still in training. Exchange... More

Just the nicest and most helpful staff, bending over backwards to make sure their guests are happy. They have a free shuttle to get you around the place, and a restaurant on site. My room was spacious, the bed was super comfortable, and the room was spotless. The computer desk was a great help. The Keurig in the room was... More

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.
