What to say! It’s a mixed, angry, melancholic and in places lovely bag… but would not stay again. A dying resort.

On a ‘once in a lifetime trip’ with my family, two night stay at LPR with two teens. The whole place is a stark reminder of how beautiful our planet is, and how badly we are f***king it up. The hotel - as I have read in other reviews - has some great quality rooms and some great staff - notably the lovely Danny in the restaurant and the lovely girl in the coffee shop. I exclude them from everything I say here, they do well to remain so gorgeous in such an oddly beautiful and melancholic place. On checking in, to an oddly empty hotel, we were given rooms with a view of the car park. I went back to reception and asked to be moved to rooms with a view of the lake. The reason we were there. A reasonable request? I was prepared to pay. You’d have thought I’d asked the obstructive woman on reception for the moon on a stick, she looked and acted pissed off. Said she’d need managerial approval unless I was prepared to pay - I said I was - and she then immediately moved our rooms even though this had been painted as a virtual impossibility. I apologetically said our trip had been booked a year and was ‘once in a lifetime’ to which she said ‘I wouldn’t know about that, I was born poor!’…. Wtaf!!!! I responded…. ‘so was I!’…. I was absolutely appalled and upset. Anyhow, as I said, ‘trip of a lifetime’, so parked it! Rooms reallocated and great views, coyote playing outside, incredible sunsets, other guests interesting and friendly and Danny in the restaurant went some way to make up for his awful colleague. However, I have to say, sewer smell did pervade near the reception. Lake Powell itself a real lesson rather than a luxury experience. I hope the ‘good’ staff are valued, as must are really disinterested. Rooms are a good quality, sunset and rise incredible, food - ok….. I am not sure I’d recommend, and won’t be back. I wonder how long with the lake getting smaller, any of us will.

Worst hotel ( not a resort ) I have every stayed in. After moving from one sewage smelling building to another ( the smell was SO BAD in bldg 3), i killed a roach, slept above the covers after reading the reviewed on bed bugs and refused to take a bath. The towels smelt like vomit and were stained yellow and the hotel is SO OUTDATED. The baseboard in the room was tearing off. WORST EVER. I would not believe a single good review on this hotel, I swear its to WORST. you can see Lake Powell from many different places - Skip this place, save the $30 park fee and stay in town. ITS GROSS - TRUST ME,

I arrived early on day of check in. The lobby was nice, but had a smell of sewew gas. I informed the desk that I understood that I was early, but wanted to let them know I was there. They said that I was free to enjoy the resort, but that my room wasn't ready(11 am). They said to check back in an hour and a half. I asked the bar tender in the smaller restaurant if we could look it over. When we got near the entrance to the larger restaurant, he yelled, don't go in there, they are cleaning it. We went out on the pool deck and stayed for a while. The flies started attacking us. They were probably attracted to the sewer gas After several check ins with the front desk, and being told that the room wasn't ready, and smelling the sewer gas every time we returned to the lobby, we decided to eat in downtown Page. We returned around 4:30. The room was still not ready. You would think that a hotel would prioritize the cleaning of a room for a guest who has arrived. But, no, 5 1/2 hours later and the room still was not ready. The smell of sewer gas was too much. I asked the man at the front desk about it. He said that they have had plumbers check it, but they haven't been able to figure out what is wrong. He also said that a few housekeepers were out sick. He didn't know when our room would be ready. We asked that he cancel our reservation and return our payment. He checked with his manager and agreed to cancel it. We stayed in Page instead. We returned the next morning to take a Navajo Canyon boat tour. The gas smell was just as strong. My wife went into the lobby ladies room. She said that it was filthy and that there was no toilet paper in any of the stalls. Another woman went to the front desk to complain about this. She was handed a very large roll of toilet paper which she had to share with other women in the bathroom. Several employees of this hotel exhibited an attitude that this hotel is special. Well, it isn't. This was to be our special treat during our 3 week vacation. I am thankful that we didn't stay here.

Wouldn’t recommend this accommodation

I rated this resort a 3 but that maybe a stretch. Checkin was a challenge. They couldn’t adjust the deposit to one bill as we had 2 rooms booked. They couldn’t accommodate us in one building and it’s a large complex. Not enough outdoor lighting.

Great resort and facilities

This is a great resort with everything if you need for a relaxing stay in a quality hotel. Rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. We had a marina view room which was great. The food offer at Rainbow restaurant was very good qualitatively, and all staff were very helpful and welcoming
