Unexpected nice stay
We happened to break down in the area and opted to stay here. We stayed in room 462 and such a lovely view! The front desk clerks were helpful. The only reason for taking a star is that I think I left something in the room and cannot get in contact with anyone at the hotel directly. There should be a direct line so you can contact them.
Awful night counter clerk!!!!!!
Let me start by saying the hotel lost 2 rooms the night of October 12th. We had a houseboat rental starting the 13th. I had booked sleeping on boat, for the night of the 12th. My husband lost his wallet somewhere between Williams and Page. We got to resort around 11:00pm. Super dark. Nobody around. We went into Hotel because we didn’t even see where houseboats were. Night clerk was no help at all. Said she didn’t know where they were??? Huh!!??? So we went in search of boats. Needless to say, we bothered the clerks phone conversation when we went in. While 4 of us are looking for houseboats, our hubbies heard someone in distress, they thought. We had a boat on a trailer behind our truck, we had to leave this parked a ways away from hotel. So our cells were in the truck. My husband went into hotel to ask the clerk (who again, was on her cell) if she could call someone because they thought someone was yelling help. She asked if they just heard it or saw someone. They said, thought they heard someone, she said then no she couldn’t call unless they knew for sure. Again...huh?!! We found houseboats and were hiking up and down the looooong ramp, trying to find a board with my name posted and boat number. We heard same person yelling. Too dark to see where it was coming from. By this time, it’s 12:45 AM, We are tired of looking so I walk to hotel to get us some rooms. Parking lot was not full...at all!!! I went and clerk was again on her phone, I asked if we could get some rooms for the night. She told me she didn’t know if there were any available. WTH???!!!!! Said she was doing an audit. I asked when would audit be done? She said, maybe an hour. So, I said fine, I’d be back in an hour, but if she was on her cell...Again...I would let management know!!! We were tired so we decided to sleep in boat, and cab of truck. As we hunkered down for a few, the Calvary came flying in...literally! Police cars, ambulance, helicopter. Seems the person in distress was a drunk woman who had driven her car into the lake from the launch. Someone from the houseboats had made a call. Very noisy as they were searching for her boyfriend, who she thought was still in car. Needless to say, we didn’t get much sleep. So Lake Powell Resort...I would rethink a night person!!! One who might be able to direct someone to houseboats, which we were at the personally owned boats, not the rental place 1/2 mile further. Someone who could have let us pay for 2 rooms, in your not full establishment. What a useless tool, you have working for you!!! I was so very disappointed. The rest of our week was great, though.
We booked here because it was the only place on the water and with ibeach access. I found it to be overpriced with shoddy construction: the footsteps above were very loud. One plus is a very pleasant garden lounging area frequented by rabbits. We decided to move to Page, to the BW Lakeview, which is much better value despite not being on the lake.
Mixed bag after first night
We’re here for 3 nights. Arrived after dark last night, so couldn’t appreciate the beautiful surroundings until this morning. Staff is very friendly. However room 450 is a true disappointment. Beautiful lake view, but noise from the swimming pool pump down below as well as music blasting from the pool area. I asked at the front desk to be moved since we are here for 2 more nights, but no King rooms available to accommodate the move. Also, coffee shop’s espresso machine doesn’t work :-(. Again, staff and surroundings are beautiful, but the noise near room 450 is a huge detraction from such a beautiful and peaceful place.
We stayed for five days. Took day trips from the lake and explored Glenn Canyon. The natural beauty of the area is amazing. We rented a speed boat for a day and truly enjoyed Lake Powell. The canyons are spectacular. Photos do not do it justice. Be sure to have your phone fully charged, as you may need the GPS to navigate the lake. The Resort is older and showing some wear. But our room was clean and comfy. Be sure to get a lake view room. Sitting on your private balcony in the morning with your coffee is great.
