The place was great late in the year they are short staffed,and the employees work their butts off to please,the food was great and quick to be served.Nights are quiet.Make sure you book directly with the hotel Aramark will but you in the cheapest rooms in which your view is blocked by trees.

Clean, very friendly. We took the boat down to Bullfrog for the weekend. It was so nice to be able to be on the lake all day and go back to enjoy a nice meal and clean, comfortable bed. We really enjoyed the Keurig machine!

My parents-in-law, my husband and I went to this hotel to spend a few nights there. We rented a family unit (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen). The unit was good. We spent such a great time there. The view is amazing. We rented a slip at the marina (a few minutes drive from our unit) which...

My family has been vacationing at Lake Powell for over 20 years, and for anyone used to tent camping or staying on one of the less luxurious houseboats on the lake, spending a weekend at the lodge is really glamming it up! Air conditioning, a fresh shower, comfortable bed... all of which that are clean and in excellent condition. Given...

Clean room, nice professional staff, great brownies at the reception, very quiet environment. Beautiful view from the restaurant deck. Very convenient location to access the marina. BBQ available at the picnic area close to the lodge.

We are very glad to hear you guys enjoyed yourselves and, it sounds like you explored the undiscovered surrounding area that is Glenn Canyon as well. I'm always personally satisfied to hear of a guest taking away the enthusiasm our area inspires in our "million acres/thousands miles playground" as I like to refer to it! Come back and see us...

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...

I love that I know I have a place that I can bring my pup with me. The rooms are always clean and we love the views.. Didn't make it to the restaurant because we got them so late, but have always had great food...
