Op kl. alt for tidligt i dag, for kl. 8 skal vi på helikoptertur ud over Grand Canyon med Papillon Heli Tours. Kl. 7.30 skal vi tjekke ind i lufthavnen, der heldigvis kun ligger 5 min. kørsel fra hotellet. Vi har købt et par boller og lidt frugt til inden flyveturen, for så må morgenmaden vente til bagefter. Det er lidt sp …
... bus, with lots of other families and drove about 5 minutes to the Glen Canyon Dam which holds back Lake Powell and is the official start of the Colorado River. When we first started planning this trip, I really wanted to see the Hoover Dam, but we had to nix that due to travel time. I was happy to learn that Glen Canyon Dam is the 2nd largest in the country at only 15 feet shorter than the Hoover. Once we got to the entrance of the ...
... br> We eventually were able to go to the tour meeting place and took a bus to get to the canyon, which is very well hidden, and you wouldn't know it was there unless you went on one of the tours (you also cannot get to it without going on a tour), but I was definitely worth the money paid! The canyon is located on Navajo land (Navajo's (pronounced Nava-ho) are a Native American Tribe). There are two parts to the canyon, the upper, and lower parts. ...
... soup. You can't spend too much time in the heat here, so we chill in Denny's with our free water for a while.
We wanted to head to the Lower Antelope Canyon today but left our research too late. The last tour leaves at 4pm and we had hung out a little too much in the hotel in the afternoon working on pics and watching tv so we missed it. Hopefully we will see both tomorrow.
Instead we settle for the scenic drive… umm not so scenic unless ...
... spoke english, lots of europeans here to see the sites of America. We enjoyed the site and drove back into town. Picked up some steaks to grill for dinner tonight and a couple of mocha frappachinos seeing as it was finally hot! Going to have lunch and then get ready for the Antelope Canyon tour. We were picked up and ferried into town for the tour of Antelope Canyon. It is on Navaho land and all tours are run by the Navaho. There were about 30 people at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN View of Lake Powell Hotel Page
Try somewhere else first
We got a good deal $55 prepaid, but when we got there the hotel was super hot inside. (The manager thought it was hot too.) The desk staff was not very helpfull and when we got to breakfast about all they had was cold cereal, but had a huge counter that looked like it should have more.
When we went to the pool a group of teenages (from Town?) pulled up and came in the outside gate and took over the place. This was after the manage had left.
The room was clean and nice but we had paid for a lake view side, but were clear on the end and could only see the power lines from the dam.
I would stay here only if you did not want to pay the extra $10 to $20 to say at one of the others.
Nice and clean...
Nice and clean hotel but front staff not so friendly and breakfast only til 9am.
We had pre-booked to stay March 04, requesting a non-smoking room ( two young kids, two asthmatics in party). When we got to our room, sure enough it stank of smoke. Why? Because smoke was coming in from the non-smoking but connecting room next door. The view out of the room was thoughtfully blocked by the pick-up truck of said smoker, it turns out, rather than block his own view.
Went to reception who rather than deal with the guest breaking their rules - guess what, "he's a regular" - offer us an ioniser. Yeah right, that'll work. The hotel with a half-empty car park was apparently full so they couldn't move us.
Staff were the most incredibly rude and unhelpful you could wish for. Almost worth going back just to witness it again - on second thoughts, I'll watch Fawlty Towers.
So off we went to the Best Western next door - cheaper for much better room and very friendly staff. It really doesn't take much, you know.
We are regular Best Westerners / cardholders when we travel the US and generally appreciate it. I guess for some individual, franchised hotels though you are worth only a couple of night's stay and don't see the bigger corporate picture.
If you stay here, I wish you better luck than us. Friends did stay here a few months earlier and loved it - recommended it.
This is written nearly a year later but sadly my views have not really mellowed.
Nice property, great rates, poor breakfast
I arrived two hours earlier than check-in time and was warmly welcomed and checked-in immediately. The room was fine, nice and clean, spacious enough. I booked a "parking view" room for just 45 $!!! Great price for Page! The choice and quantity of breakfast items was poor/low, which is the only thing I disliked for my stay there. Otherwise I got a lot for my money.
Possibly average but watch out for tour groups!
We stayed here on September 14, 2004. Room was about what you would expect at a Best Western and it had been updated in the past five to ten years. King bed was firm. We had a view of the parking lot. Check in was not exactly smooth - their credit card machine broke down and a large tour group arrived while we were waiting. Continental breakfast in am was absolute mahem as we tried to eat at the same time as the tour group. Page itself is a nice little town to stay- it was a good stopping point between Mesa Verde and Zion.
Poor customer service
My partner and I stayed here in Aug 2004 figuring we'd spend more to enjoy waking to a peaceful lake view. We were booked into a top-floor room with a view of the parking lot (I reserved a lakeview room online), but were so tired and it was late (1 am) that we just wanted to get a good night's sleep. We were violently awakened at 6 am on Saturday by workboots and heavy equipment on the roof directly above our room. I called the front desk and was told "There's nothing we can do... we can move you to another room." The thundering noise continued continuously for the remainder of the morning (we left at 8 am because of the noise). I wrote a complaint to the management and was told that management didn't know that the workers would be there. (The workers' commercial truck was parked in the guest entrance area when we arrived the night before.) I anticipated a refund to my complaint given Best Western's failure of a promise of "a good night's sleep", but instead we were offered a free hotel room there on a future visit (no thanks!). My second letter of complaint was returned with "Address unknown - return to sender" - suspicious in such a small town. As a result of this experience, we suggest staying elsewhere in Page.
Drive right on by
Hotel is ok, rooms large and airy but need updating. Staff need to learn manners though - we arrived at 2pm and entered reception to enquire if we could check in early. The woman behind reception pointed to a sign and said - can't you read, this says 3pm come back later. The continental breakfast was a joke, there was no refilling when things ran out, within 1 hour, no bread for toast, no bagels, no fruit etc etc. Would not return if you paid me.
Nice, quiet, and clean
Just got back from our trip out west...
We stayed at the BW Arizona Inn in Page one night.
Our room was clean and large. The bed was comfy. We had a king room with a baby bed on the second floor.
There are lots of places to eat nearby. (We ate dinner at the Glen Canyon Steak House. Tasty food and lots of it!!)
Check in and out was quick. The staff could have been a bit friendlier but oh well.. no biggie.
The price was exceptional at $90/night including tax and everything.
Breakfast was good and filling. There was toast, bagels, cereal, muffins, fruit, and plenty of drink variety.
Nice view of the lake out the windows if you get on the correct side of the building.
Definately a good stay in Page, AZ.
Lake Powell lodging
This hotel has a great sweeping view of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon bridge and dam.
Staff at front desk were helpful and pleasant young Navajos who knew about the area and gave recommendations and cautions as to tours and restaurants. We had a second floor room with lake view with two queen beds. Breakfast is provided in the lobby. It can get crowded but it was nice to meet fellow travelers.
The room was about $75.00 on a Friday night. We were given a late checkout so we could do the Antelope Canyon tour in the morning.
Great hotel in Page
Spent two nights in this hotel and would definitely recommend it.
Particularmly, a great reception, very helpful and willing to answer questions, give recommendations, etc. -10% with AAA Only reservation: breakfast area a little too small during high season
