“Overpriced cheap motel”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

First, when checking in, they required "federal ID"! The bedroom is large, but the bathroom requires update. The sink and bathtub are clogged, the bathtub is unstable, door lock is broken. The air condition is noisy. The breakfast is terrible, they forgot my order. Only thing good is view. One more thing, in order to access the hotel you need to pay $15 national park entrance fee!!

This place was a real surprise. We were on a bus tour and honestly didn't know a thing about lake Powell. What a wonderful surprise! Our room had a patio that faced the water which held fabulous sunsets and sunrises. It was a bit of a hike to the lobby where the restaurants were. Food was very good. Morning breakfast has omelette station that were some of the best omelets I ever had! Definitely take the boat ride. You will see sights that you didn't know were there! Great stay!

Room Tip: Take the boat ride. You will be glad you did.

Lovely place with beautiful views. Could do with a face lift and elevators. Stay on a main floor if you are elderly. Hot tub was around 85 degrees and the bar tender told me it was only a warm tub? Communication between the main booking number in Phoenix and the actual resort was not always the same.

Room Tip: Ground floors only if you have heavy luggage.

Although we’re regular travelers to Southern Utah, my wife and I were very excited to visit Lake Powell for the first time this trip. We booked two nights at the Lake Powell Resort because we wanted to be close to the water and lots of activities. Unfortunately, it isn’t that close to the water or activities outside of tours and rentals at the Wahweap Marina. Everything else is a nine-mile drive into the town of Page.

We walked into a lobby packed with mostly older tourists, which explained the several tour buses we saw in the parking lot. Fortunately, they were waiting for a lake cruise and not standing in line to be checked-in. I liked that you could book lake cruises from a separate counter in the lobby, but the cruise groups lining up in the lobby can sure make things congested! We walked right up to the check-in counter and gave the front desk clerk our name, she pulled up our reservation and told us they were sold out of lakeview rooms. Never mind that we had reserved one a month before our visit! The clerk said that she could get us a non-lakeview room with a complimentary breakfast since they weren’t able to honor our reservation. My wife whispered to me that she was ready to go into the classic “reservations scene” from Seinfeld – about how it’s easy to take the reservation, but what’s important is to hold the reservation! Fortunately, the desk clerk got a supervisor who was available to get us the lakeview room we had reserved. I have to admit that I was a little surprised when the clerk asked us if it was okay if our room was on the second floor, as they had no elevators. It wasn’t a big deal for us, but this really surprised me considering the mostly older clientele we saw during our stay.

Our second floor lakeview room might have had a view of the lake, but it was definitely at a distance. If it helps, the distance to the lake and marina is enough that the resort offers to shuttle people using golf carts. My wife commented right away that she felt like our room being described as lakeview was a rip-off. We had to look past a lawn, then a swimming pool, and finally a good patch of scrubby desert to see the water! It was also disappointing that you couldn't sit on the balcony and enjoy the view, as the balcony wall was fairly high for safety reasons.

The room itself was nice enough, although it felt about 20 years outdated, right down to the tube television and no Internet access whatsoever. One modern convenience was the Keurig Mini coffeemaker, complete with a variety of six K-cups, including some Starbucks. However, I was surprised at the lack of available outlets to charge my devices. Except for one in the bathroom, I actually had to unplug the coffeemaker from a three-plug adapter to free up an outlet. Speaking of electrical, kudos to the resort for using compact fluorescent bulbs. However, the four above the bathroom vanity are the old-fashioned kind and start out very dim. If you need good lighting in the bathroom, plan to turn them in advance as they need several minutes to get to full brightness. I also thought the wall soap and lotion dispensers were a nice environmental touch, although the products I used smelled a little antiseptic, like something you’d get in a hospital.

Dining options are very limited for such a large resort – basically a formal restaurant, The Rainbow Room, a coffee and snack counter off of the lobby, and a burger and pizza place at the end of the main building. We thought it would be nice to eat in the Rainbow Room our first night there, only to show up without a reservation and told there was an hour and fifteen minute wait. I guess that’s what happens when you’re the only game in town! In hindsight this was a blessing, as it appears to be fairly expensive. The burger and pizza place didn’t look very promising either ($12 for a Caesar salad!), so we ended up driving the nine miles into Page and had a very good meal there at The Dam Bar and Grill (we ate there twice it was so good!).

Also, know that this resort is located in a National Recreation Area, so you will need to pay an entrance fee to enter like you do at a National Park. Once you’ve paid, you just have to show your receipt every time you enter. We came and went so much that it got a little old waiting in line at the ranger station every time we returned to the resort.

While the Lake Powell Resort is nice enough, I think it’s overpriced considering the amenities. They obviously cater to tour groups, as I never saw fewer than four large tour buses in the parking lot. My wife and I agreed that we would hate to be stuck there without a car because of the very limited food options and activities. To that end, there are lots of nicer, newer, and no doubt cheaper, chain hotels in Page with much better access to activities and restaurants. I know that’s where we’ll be staying the next time we’re in the area!

Room Tip: There's either lakeview or parking lot, and some lakeview rooms are not very close to the lake!

We only stayed here briefly, arriving at dusk and leaving at dawn so not much to say.

The hotel is perched right on the lake and is easy to get to. I imagine its a good base to explore the area i thats your thing.

Our room was massive with a whole additional room space with sofas. Pointless for us but a family might find useful. The rooms were average with average shower etc, nothing to get excited or complain about.

We had a drink in the bar which had a good range and people seemed to enjoy the food. We ate in the cheaper 'fast food' effort rater than queue for the restaraunt. It was ok but a bit like eating in a canteen.

There is a coffee shop on site which we planned to use for a quick getaway breakfast - sadly it didnt stock anything suitable (no pastries etc) so we left hungry. If we werent being tight im sure breakfast in the restaurant would have been ok but it all adds up!

You must go and see Horseshoe Bend if visiting, an impressive bend in the river canyon that is a must have photo. Its about 20 minutes drive from the hotel.

This hotel is in an excellent location for Lake Powell. Pay the upgrade for a lake view room and go second floor. The car park view rooms are such a disappointment. The rooms were well appointed. The shower was lacking in power but ok for a couple of days.
Some of the other blocks of rooms looked quite tatty. I think our block was a newer build

Ate in dining room first night. Food average and expensive.Ate in Page the next night. Good selection of restaurants and much better food. Staff in the restaurant leave a lot to be desired!

No safe in room so the only option was a safety deposit box housed in a different block quite a walk away. For a hotel of this class there should be one in the room. Made life quite difficult at times.

Overall we had a good time. Would recommend this hotel because of it's location and the views.

Room Tip: Ask for lake view block 7. I think this is newer than some of the other blocks

We had a high room on the lake that provided us with excellent views of the water and the surrounding mountains that were ever changing from morning sunrise to sunset. Staying here two nights we were able to take advantage of the resorts' setting and it really was beautiful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was complete silence at night. We had drinks at the bar and enjoyed it's nice view as well. The restaurants were fine, we were here to enjoy the water and the cliffs so the idea of driving somewhere to find a great restaurant was not on our radar.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room on the lakeside. It makes all the difference!
