Very nice, great location
Location is wonderful, right on Lake Powell. The rooms were very nice and clean. Two pools available for customers. There are several restaurants and bars and grills on the property. We enjoyed our stay here.

Just for tour buses!
This is an out-of-date very well-worn tour bus hotel. That truly would be the only reason anyone would stop here. Luckily, there is a nice view of Lake Powell, a great gift shop and a couple of OK, average to below average dining venues for the tourists. The beds are very clean and the AC works (a little noisy) so you can spend a night or two here in order to be close to all of the great views and activities. The lobby and grounds are packed with people spilling off of the numerous tour buses. I think I counted 11 of them one night. We ate at the Driftwood Lounge in the resort and waited 1 hour and 17 minutes for our food and the restaurant was half full. The server’s excuse, “ah...I think there was something wrong with your ticket!” Ya think??? The food was OK but was it too much to ask for hot fries after that long wait? I would avoid that place and go somewhere else, anywhere else! It was an OK stay, nothing the least bit special, an ok coffee stand with one confused woman working. Everyone wanted coffee, the line was about 11 people long and she had very little idea of what she was doing. Eventually, everyone walked away! Too bad, because it was a good idea! Stay here only for the location!!

Nice Location and Very Good Resort
Lake Powell Resort is very good and with a little effort could be excellent. The lines at various locations were often long. The food was very good. The food bar for breakfast was Excellent. The rooms were good enough but nothing outstanding. The restaurant staff was below standard. Wait times for service in the restaurant were much too long! Don't plan for a quick meal.

Room had 2 queen beds and full bathroom with a separate vanity area from the shower and toilet. Room had a balcony with 2 chairs. Room was clean. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was outdated. Tub had drainage issues and the shower head was awful...essentially a powerful hose on full blast that couldn't be adjusted. Called to report both issues. Said they would have someone come fix and never did because on Day 2, I had the same issues. Staff is mediocre as many don't have a clue about the resort and what all it has to offer. Seems they are there to just perform one job and that job only. I found Alexis at the Welcome Center to be your best asset! She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Very helpful. The lake views on the property are gorgeous and the pool area was very comfortable. The sidewalks and grassy areas with benches throughout the property are loaded with big red ants so don't stop for long to look at the views otherwise the ants are on your feet!

The Bad and the Good
We made our yearly reservations an entire year prior. Called a month before to confirm a downstairs room due to inability to use stairs. Room was confirmed. Called on the drive in and room was again confirmed. Arrived before check-in and went to front desk only to be told that we were going to have to stay in upstairs room for part of our stay. That was unacceptable for the reasons stated and particularly since we made reservations a full year prior. I went back to car and tried to call the desk manager, Marvin Prince, but he was not available. I spoke with Geoff. He was understanding and appreciated our plight. He worked everything out for us and made sure we had a downstairs unit in a different building at no extra cost. He was very courteous and, frankly, a great gentleman. When Marvin did return, I spoke with him in person and explained things to him, including the bad (the reservation snafu) and the good (Geoff). Like Geoff, he made me feel as though I mattered and he took great care of us and booked our stay for next year, too. So, after a slow start, it all worked out well. We return to Lake Powell Resort every year and greatly enjoy our time there. Many thanks to Geoff and Marvin for their good deeds and helping us have the trip we had hoped for! Great guys...
