Quick boating vacation with friends - staying in the hotel for three days made it easy - we usually rent a houseboat and stay longer - this was a nice get away with our boat - first time to Lake Powell for our friends. We have been to Lake Powell every year for the past 31 years. Nothing better!

I've been to Lake Powell a few times, mostly when I was younger. We always rented a houseboat. This was our first time actually staying at the hotel. I found the hotel to be clean and the beds pretty comfortable. Obviously the room is no 5 star hotel but what can you really expect in such a deserted area. We...

the only real option available but that is not a bad thing, especially in the off season this can be a really wonderful place to stay. a bit dated and the beds are a bit stiff but when you are in a place this beautiful, you hardly notice at all

This is the second time in two years that we have eaten at the restaurant. Both times have been very disappointing, the host was rude when she told us to wait to be seated as she was talking on the phone, we could see the sign stating wait to be seated. After taking our order, it took a very long...

My apologies for your experience with us, and we will use the phone incident as a learning tool for our staff. Even if someone is on the phone for a “to go” order, or busy, we still want them to be friendly and welcoming when acknowledging our guests. I have to assume the lack of a bartender was during our...

Stayed during last week of July 2015. Everybody we talked to was very nice. The food at the Anasazi was very good, especially the NY Steak. Took our own boat and rented a slip. Kept trailer in parking lot with no problems. Would definitely stay there again.

Please call me at your earliest convenience at 435-684-3000. I'd like to find out more about your experience as a whole, as we seldom, if ever, have any of our guests prefer to sleep in their car as opposed to a nice clean bed and room. I would also like to clarify "far away from interesting place" and see if...

We stayed before and after our recent houseboat vacation. Clean, quiet, comfortable, with easy access. Great restaurant attached as well as a gift shop. Great place to stay before starting a houseboat vacation.

This little-known lodge is named for a nearby archaeological site and its warrior pictographs. We were delighted to find this lodge on our meandering Southern Utah road trip. It's out of the way and is most appreciated by people who do NOT want the typical tourist glitz. It happened to be miraculously rainy, during this long drought, when we were...
