The hotel itself is run down and kinda dingy. It has a comfortable bed, coffee, and friendly people. The view is FANTASTIC. I watched the sun set from our porch that faced the marina. I spent my evening watching the bouys blink out over the water. Its dark enough here that you can get a great view of the Milky... More

Employees friendly and helpful, bed comfortable, food good,and Dog welcome. Location at the Lake is perfect when weather prevents Houseboat accessibility. Excellent historic portrayal of the Anasazi Indians through decorations.

If this place was more affordable, I would give it an above average rating. Check in was relatively quick. The is plenty of parking for those towing boat trailers. The hallways seemed a little dark. The room was dark. The bathroom was small. If I remember correctly, we had a microwave and fridge. The room was clean and I would... More

Came down to put our boat away and splurged on a room at the lodge. Queen bed was so old or broken that you sunk a foot into the mattress. There was trash behind the Nite stand. The folks next door smoked on their deck which drifted into our room. Three dogs next door that barked every time someone walked... More

We were charged a week after we checked out for "damages" which I know did not happen. When I called nobody could tell me what they were for or any specifics! Only that we may have damaged washcloths or towels. It was ridiculous, so they gave us a refund for that fee. There is a warning sign in each room... More

My husband and I bragged on the food and service at the restaurant and took some friends over from Halls to eat and watch the Bronco game. First we ordered some "speciality drinks" and waited for 30 minutes before the waitress said, "Oh my God we are out of vodka and pineapple juice." That meant we couldn't have bloody mary's... More

We are very sorry to hear about your disappointing experience and confusion over tequila types in a margarita among other things. Please give us a call in the Anasazi restaurant, and we would be glad to take care of you, and your friends food for both lunch and dinner. We can't provide complimentary alcohol by law, but we would love... More

It is obvious that this Lodge is the only one in Bullfrog. I stayed twice within 2 weeks. First time was a king-size bed with a view over the immediate lake. the view IS awesome ! The lighting of the room is really bad. The light was on one side of this big bed and the on/off switch on the... More

The place was great late in the year they are short staffed,and the employees work their butts off to please,the food was great and quick to be served.Nights are quiet.Make sure you book directly with the hotel Aramark will but you in the cheapest rooms in which your view is blocked by trees.

Clean, very friendly. We took the boat down to Bullfrog for the weekend. It was so nice to be able to be on the lake all day and go back to enjoy a nice meal and clean, comfortable bed. We really enjoyed the Keurig machine!

My parents-in-law, my husband and I went to this hotel to spend a few nights there. We rented a family unit (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen). The unit was good. We spent such a great time there. The view is amazing. We rented a slip at the marina (a few minutes drive from our unit) which... More
