“good place to start your river trip”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We stayed here before and after a kayak trip on Lake Powell. There are a lot of options for hotels (and churches!) in Page and this was more than adequate. We were on the shoulder season and booked well in advance, so we did not feel that we over paid. We had a third floor room with a view of the power plant (lovely steamy sunsets). The rooms were average size with very comfortable beds. There were a couple of odd maintenance issues (the hot and cold faucets were reversed in one room, the toilet seat in one room was the wrong shape for the toilet and the door hit it when you opened it, and a few torn wallpaper and rug spots), but overall the rooms were quiet and comfortable.
The breakfast was actually much better than I'd hoped for -- a variety of hot dishes, cereals, toasts and pancakes. There is definitely a rush hour at about 7:30-8 am...so if you want to avoid fighting for the last cinnamon roll come early or late!

Room Tip: the top floor seemed a bit quieter.

First of all: you DO need to book before you arrive Page. We thought that we will find a place to stay for sure (it was a Wednesday, end of September) and we spend like 2 hours and half looking for a place cheaper than 140 dollars (not a single room in a single motel). The point is, as people around told us: Page is full of europeans on holidays all the time, due to be very close to several Canyons and Horseshoe. So we arrived to the Holiday Inn and we were more or less lucky I guess, since we didn't have another choice for several reasons and there was a room left. It was the best breakfast in America (very Supertramp, uh) we had in a hotel/motel, with fruit, bakery, waffles, coffee, tea, bacon, eggs… and the front desk girl was very nice. The hall looks a but like the hotel at The Shine… So,the only room they had was what they call a very small one with a queen bed, and it was small for the american average but for the european one was even big. Tv, bathroom, amenities, very clean and comfortable, as well as quiet and at a very good location. No problem with parking even though it was completely full. For us it was not cheap at all but it was the best choice we could find that night.

Room Tip: If you plan to go to Page book you room with at least some days before you arrive!

We stayed here one night and found the room clean and comfortable. Walking distance to several restaurants and a market. The breakfast was what we expect from Holiday Inn Express: a variety of baked goods, eggs, coffee & juice, yogurt, and fruit.

Dont even bother, you get what you pay for. After a long drive we came to this hotel only for one night. We found our bed and pillows had hair all over an the bathroom had pubic hairs on the floor, yes curly pubic hair all over the floor. This is quite discusting can't wait to get out from here.

Got stuck in Page and this was the only place available in town. We had to get the suite which was over $240 for the night. This was more than we had paid for a lake view room at lake powell resort down the road! The room was huge, but the furniture was old and stained and ripped up. There were bugs in the bathroom. The linens were new and clean thankfully. The worse part was the balcony overlooked the parking lot and adjacent football field. There was a high-school game on and the noise was incredible!!!!!! Marching band, fans, etc til almost 11pm. UGH

Just what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express, big room, two very comfy beds. Choice of firm or soft pillows on the bed. Nice toiletries. Breakfast usual fare from this type of chain, though I have to say the cinnamon buns were nice.
Well situated in town, one block away from Safeway if you like to self-cater. Microwave and full size fridge, iron & ironing board. The guest laundry room was good since we were on a long trip and running out of clean clothes ($2 for a wash plus $2 for a 60min dry).

Room Tip: Wifi pretty good on 2nd floor. Could hear noises from 3rd floor, so if you're a light sleeper as...

After reading so many reviews, I was very concerned so I called the motel directly. Thank you Courtney for your help & insuring we got the right room.

Suite #200 is HUGE & perfect for a bigger family or if you need a little privacy. On our 3-4 week road trips, its nice to have a little space. Suite 200 is located at the end of the hall away from the elevator, quiet, very spacious. It's clearly a former apt - full kitchen, living room w/sofa bed & flat screen TV. The spacious separate bedroom has a King bed w/ 2nd flat screen. The bathroom had access from both the BR and LR with lots of counter space. There's a tiny balcony off the living room but no chairs or view. No worries b/c we were rarely in the room; the little town is full of things to do with stunning scenery.

Suite #100 would be awful. It is literally right in the middle of the breakfast area. It is also smaller inside than suite #200. We had breakfast at the table right next to it. Had we moved our chairs back a few inches we may have been in front / blocking the door. There is no way this suite wouldn't hear the breakfast noise because the walls are quite thin. Plus the sofa bed in suite 100 is right next to the door that opens into the breakfast room. This too must have been an apartment before they started offering breakfast. (It is one of the older motels in town.) If this is the only suite left & you need the room, its still a better deal than suites in other motels.

The rooms aren't as nicely decorated as most HIE but the lobby had nice SW touches, with a huge fireplace as the focal point. As others wrote, breakfast is congested & chaotic but fresh & managed well. We loved sitting at the pool late at night to gaze at the stars.

We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Suite #200 is great - huge, spacious, ideal. Suite #100 is very noisy with very little privacy.
