This is the place to book in Page
While some of the other properties in Page claim to have water views or be close to the lake, Lake Powell Resort actually is right on the lake, and many of the rooms have lake views. There is also a nice walking path with views of the lake, and lounge chairs with views are available on the lawns and by the pools.
Indeed, the recent renovations brought the rooms up to current standards (although hot water seems to be in short supply; we were not able to get enough of it for even a 3 minute shower). But the restaurant also has been refurbished with nice floor-to ceiling windows that offer unobstructed views of the lake and red rock country.
Needless to say that some 10 miles away from Page proper, you have no light pollution and can observe a very very starry sky at night, including the Milky Way. Very Cool ! And being away from everything else, naturally, it was also very quiet.
The National Park entry fee is covered in a yearly National Parks pass or the lifetime Senior Pass if you are over 62 years of age (really, a lifetime steal at $80 currently).
Maybe in a next renovation the balcony fences could be replaced by glass or rails that allow more of the views to be enjoyed while seated on the patio/balcony, but this was a rather minor concern for us.
We will definitely stay here again the next time we come through Page. (In fact, I was so convinced that this is the go-to-lodging in Page that I sent my sister there a year before I even got the chance check it out myself; by the way, she loved it as much as I do, even though she had a 16-year-old in tow ;)).

Average hotel - very understaffed
Very average hotel - nothing fancy. Unfortunately they are drastically understaffed (we understand only three housekeepers for this large hotel) There was a long line of guests waiting checking in with no clean rooms available still at 8pm. The second night we were there we noticed the same issue for arriving guests. Food in the restaurants is mediocre. That said. The location and. Jews are beautiful. Both pools are nice. Lobby area is nice as well. Hopefully they can hire some more help soon - otherwise I wouldn’t recommend coming here unless you are ok with getting your room at 9pm.

Unparalleled views if you book a lake view room. $30 entry fee to enter Glenn Canyon recreational area that the hotel is located in. Was very quiet when we went; hotel restaurant was only open for limited dinner but Page is not far and has several options. Overall glad we stayed here on the lake rather than downtown Page!!

We wish we would have planned for more time here. Quiet and very accommodating. Restaurant options there or in Page which is about 15 min drive. We loved our lakeside views. Just note that check in isn't until 5pm....

Highlight of Our Trip to Lake Powell
The resort is undergoing major renovations which gives the property a modern, updated look. We stayed in a lake view suite and rooms were beautiful and the views were breathtaking! The staff was very helpful and the resort was very quite - perfect for a sound night’s sleep. We ordered dinner from the in-site restaurant and appreciate them using environmentally friendly ware.
