Disappointed... Jun 14, 2011
We stayed at Lake Powell Resort for one night when we were visitng Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona. We stayed at a different hotel a night before, but since that hotel was not available for two nights, we booked Lake Powell Resort for our second night in the area.
Lake Powell Resort is located within Glen Canyon National Recreational Area, so in order to reach the resort, you must pay the entrance fee for the Recrational Area. 1-7 Day Vehicle Pass is currently $15. I suppose most of the guests here are visiting Glen Canyon, so they must not mind it. Even though we were not there for Glen Canyon, it did not matter to us as we had an annual pass for National Park. If you are NOT visiting Glen Canyon, or you don't have a pass for National Parks, you should skip this place.
Now, about the resort.
We were rather disappointed. The main building that houses the reception, restaurants, and gift shops looks nice and new. However, the building that had our room was old and run-down. The two-story building has no elevators, so we had to drag our luggage up on a narrow staircase.
We booked what they called a "Traditional room" with two queen beds. It was obviously an old room, but it was clean enough and the beds looked newer.
Bathroom had only one set of towels and no wash clothes. We had to call housekeeping to bring some more, and had to wait for quite a while before they arrived. My husband mentioned, when we were checking in, he heard some guest at the reception desk complaining that they had no towels in their room. Apparently, that night, we were not the only ones without towels.
After towels arrived, I jumped into the shower, but the bathtub barely drained. We all took shower while standing in soapy water.
Although the staff at the reception was friendly, there seemed to be always a very long line for check-in/out. While I understand they have many guests, I think they should do something to improve the situation.
Like many other lodging facilities in the National Park system, this resort is operated by a company called Aramark. We had stayed some at other lodges run by them in the past, and we encountered similar problems. Maybe, this is our last time to stay at Aramark-operated facilities. They are quite expensive, which is understanble considering the location (they are located IN the National Parks); however, the quality of their accommodation and services are just not worth it.
I won't recommend Lake Powell Resort, unless you absolutely have to stay within the park for location's sake.
