These accommodations and restaurant were very nice especially considering they are located in the middle of nowhere on the shores of Lake Powell. It's an Aramak motel and restaurant with average food and good accommodations.

This is a great place, overlooking Lake Powell. What you need is close. The boat ramp is within a half mile. The restaurant is also great. We were there in October this year 2014. The only thing is that breakfast don't start till 8am at this time of year. Would be nice if it was at 7am. Everyone was very...

Stayed at the Defiance House Lodge for one night. I'm at Bullfrog Marina on Lake Powell at least once a year, but have always stayed on a boat. This was my first experience with Defiance House. It is the only hotel in Bullfrog. There is also a hotel at Ticaboo about 15 miles away and then the next closest hotel...

We had a nice night at the Defiance House Lodge. 10 of us spent the night here prior to renting a houseboat for a week. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant staff was very accommodating seating 12 of us at a large table. The dinner food was so-so, but the breakfast quite good. It's a nice hotel for...

Our room had a view of the lake and lots of boats and campers. We appreciated the very large towels and lots of pillows. Plenty of free Starbucks coffee products were supplied for the in-room Keurig machine. The tub was very slick and might need something to prevent slipping.

We had a first floor room with exceptional views, the rooms are bit small and in need of an update. However the beds are comfortable and there was plenty of hot water in the bathroom. Staff are very friendly and most helpful. Food in the restaurant at dinner time not so good and the buffet breakfast is really bad. The...

Stayed here a few weeks ago with friends. We booked 2 view rooms on the first floor. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. Keurig coffee makers with Starbucks coffee, assortment of teas, and hot milk chocolate for the kids - was a HUGE win. Patios were nice with 2 chairs and a table. They could have used some sweeping or...

Bed was good and comfortable. We had an east facing room with no view but you can go in the restaurant to enjoy the sunset. No bar soap or extras were provided. Shampoo and soap were in a shower dispenser that was not labeled. We stayed prior to a houseboat trip and after the trip in a different room. Both...

I was pleasantly surprised at this lodge. I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it turned out to be. It looks older and could use some touch up but other than that it was comfortable. The air conditioner worked well which was a nice plus after being on the lake as hot as it was when we were...
