This place is not a Hilton or DoubleTree for sure, but it serves a purpose and does begin to grow on you after checking in. There are several blocks of these "row cottages" that are all built the same way - cinderblock, ranch, and all connected as they were built for workers in the 50's that came into the area (then just desert, Navajo Reservation, and the Colorado River) to build the Glen Canyon Dam. When booking the hotel (about 3 months earlier), I spoke with Tom, the owner's husband, and he was super duper helpful as he offered a lot of information for the area as well as how long we should expect to travel to different places around Page. He sent me this info via email as well so that I wouldn't forget details and directions. Because this place is "old school," you can't book online, they book via phone. When we came to check in we met one of their caretakers of the property and his dog, "Buddy." This guy, we can't remember his name, was very low key and gives you somewhat of a worry as to what you're getting yourself into, however this changes quickly as you warm up to him. He took us to our assigned room and gave us the keys. He made sure we had enough towels and such, too. He lives pretty close as he drives a golf cart to work and can get there within 5 minutes if you need him. This place was very spacious for our bulky travel bags and has a full kitchen, a mostly full size refrigerator, and freezer. It is mostly fully stocked and even had a wine bottle opener (thank sweet baby Jesus). As you can see from the pictures, not much inside but there are couches, chairs, a fairly comfy bed and it was clean. As you can read in other reviews, the decor leaves much to be desired, but because of all the stuff you are doing outside of the hotel, you are usually pretty tired. Definitely worth a try. The only hang up we had was the price but they are usually comparable to other hotels in the area and we were traveling in the late peak summer season.
