Holiday Inn Express Page-Lake Powell
Travel Blogs from Page
As we were going to cover around 300 miles today we left Gallup at around 8.00am. The first stop was Canyon de Chelly National Monument. The Rangers at the visitor centre offer guided tours and talks throughout the day. We decided to drive the south rim for a bit and we were not disappointed, the views across and down into the canyon were …
Nachdem wir gestern aus dem South Rim im Grand Canyon extra nach Page angereist sind um uns den Antelope Canyon anzusehen, mussten wir heute morgen feststellen, dass unsere Tour aufgrund des schlechten Wetters ( Überschwemmungen im Canyon) abgesagt wurde :-( wir waren so traurig, da wir zum einen 500 km dafür gefahren sind und zum anderen …
... up the tunnel and back to our car. After we left the center, we drove down to the lookout for Horseshoe Bend. The girl at the counter said "oh its just a five minute walk..definitely worth checking out". Liar. It was about 20 minutes each way in the deep sand up and down big hills. We were sucking some serious wind at the end, especially because of the high elevation. Horseshoe Bend is gorgeous...but completely anxiety provoking as ...
We are still in Page today and that was not our plan at all. The Neiswinger misfortune struck again today. After taking the trucks out to refuel we came back to hook up. I was helping Paul hook up just starting to raise the front legs. We always go though this routine of raising the legs 3-4 inches off the ground then slowly pulling forward with the trailer brakes locked on. This gives a go check that the kingpin is locked in. If the kingpin is not locked and you ...
... section. A tour guide was trying to tell her group to move to the right to let people pass but one guy didn't like it and raised his voice telling her that "I'll take my time and you can't tell me what to do". Hinesh didn't like being herded through the canyons today and normally I don't either but I was too engrossed in taking my pictures. I can see why it is the most photographed place in America. You can't take a wrong shot. Shoot vertical, horizontal, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Page-Lake Powell
Holiday Inn Express good as always
I'm beginning to realize that you can't go wrong with a Holiday Inn Express. This was exactly what you would expect out of this chain. Very nice and clean rooms. Friendly service with a great knowledge of the area and what to see. And a nice continental breakfast. If your goin to Page, you can't go wrong here. Can't wait to get back out and experience the area once again.
Disappointing for a Holiday Inn Express.
OK hotel but disappointing for a Holiday Inn Express. Front desk staff were very casual, chatting to each other rather than checking us in, another time kept on talking on the phone to a boy friend and ignoring customers.
Hotel has large lobby but cold atmosphere. Hallways are wide and again left you with a cold barren feeling. Room was a good size with 2 queens. For so much available space in the room the bathroom was very small, door nearly hits you as you sit. Were given a room on the main floor, a bus parked outside the window and started up at 5am.
We were there end of April, a lovely day temp was 90 but the pool was closed and looked disgusting. Breakfast poorly set out and unimpressive. We were told breakfast buffet was at 6:30 but they open up for a bus group before 6. The fresh warn cinnamon buns, that I had enjoyed at other HI Express were finally put out a 6:55 and were COLD.
The best part was the Mexican restaurant about a block away.
We were given a cheap rate when booking in advance but the Courtyard look so very much better. Would not stay here again.
Good hotel in the middle of Page
This hotel is located close to the main street of Page on top of the hill. Traffic is light so one is not disturbed by traffic noise during night. The entrance hall is huge and very nicely decorated. The whole complex is really clean. There are sofas to relax and a fireplace. The elevator takes you up to 3 floors. The hotel has inroom corridors, doors do not shut too noisy. Unfortunately walls are really thin and you hear your neighbour snoring. The first impression of the hotel when I entered was that it smelled really good, also when we entered the room.
Check-in counter is long and friendly decorated as well. Staff was very friendly and checked us in quickly - we had a prepaid room. She gave us a map of the town and showed us many restaurants and shopping places on that map. Later on she had to check in a bus group and was very friendly too.
Swimming pool behind the building was closed for the season. It's a small pool with small pool area, all concrete.
On first floor there is the breakfast room as well. They serve complimentary famous Holiday Inn breakfast with a good variety of food. You get juices, coffee and milk, hot chocolate, various kinds of cereal and oatmeal. There 3 kinds of toast and bagles, muffins and boiled eggs. Apple jelly and butter and cream cheese complete the variety. They serve 2 kinds of fresh fruit as well.
Unfortunately we arrived at breakfast after one of the busgroups had left. There was hardly any food left and it took a long time until a young lady had brought more food. All tables were loaded with leftovers and crumbles. Fortunately we found the only clean table in the room and for the next 45 minutes, while we had our breakfast, no one ever cleaned any of the other tables. People had to do it themselves. Thumb down, Holiday Inn staff!
Our room on 3rd floor was really huge, in fact we got 3 double beds in it! The rooms are nicely decorated with light brown furniture and coloured blankets on the beds. The darker floor did not look 100 percent clean though. The mattresses of the beds were a bit torn. They had no covers on the lower mattresses which would have hidden that.
Beds though were firm and we slept very well.
They had 5 lamps and nice pictures on the walls, 2 mirrors, a fridge and a microwave. TV shows about 30 channels but not every channel worked. They have HBO.
The sink is integrated in the sleeping room, toilet and tub are in an extra bathroom. Hairdryer, ironing equipment, telephone and alarm clock are provided. You get soap and shampoo and can get more at the counter.
The bathroom was not newly refurbished, the tiles on the floor were partly broken and in between the tiles the floor looked black. But they have a special massage shower head for your convenience.
Holiday Inn is one of the bigger hotels in town with many rooms and that's why bus groups also stay here. If you like a more intimitate location go elsewhere. Sometimes the elevator was overcrowded and the waiting line long so we used the stairs up. Think when you go for breakfast - do it when the groups have left. Though we had the room directly adjacent to the elevator it was not too noisy during night.
There is free wireless internet access in every room, but with our laptop from Europe we could not get connected, although the lady at the check-in had given us a written how-to-do. With a cable it always works.
Good standard hotel
Fairly standard chain hotel where we stayed for one night, but clean and comfortable, which is all we needed. The walls were a bit thin, so we could hear the people talking in the next room, but there seemed to be quite a lot of them and they were competing with the TV, so they were talking quite loud.
The complimentary breakfast was OK - better than some, but not as good as some others we had during our visit to the USA.
WiFi is available at no cost in the rooms.
The staff were not particularly friendly and a bit off-hand at times, but we had no real problems to test their helpfulness.
Not a place to stay if you are looking for character or luxury, but reasonable value for money if you just want somewhere to spend a night.
Good Value for a Suite - Funny entrance...
My family stayed one night at this hotel and found it to be very comfortable, quiet and clean. It was conveniently located to a very outstanding mexican restaurant and the a local mart, plus a little farther a safeway.
We reserved a 1 bedroom suite with a king bed and full kitchen and fold out sofa. The suite turned out to be a full apartment with a full kitchen and small washer and dryer.
The funny thing was our suite was on the first floor and you had to enter through the breakfast buffet. Strange?
This didn't bother us, because we got there late after noon, and were leaving early morning.
My son (15) thought it was totally unacceptable.
The breakfast buffet had hard boiled eggs, cereal, bagels, juice and milk, coffee, etc. It was a good value.
Please note for 90 I thought it was worth it for a one night stopover. However the kitchen / washer did not come with any supplies you need to buy them.
Probably wouldn't enjoy it for a week, but ok for a quick stop for parents who want some privacy and space.
Great Stay in Lake Powell area
Nice, newish hotel. Staff accomodating. Beautiful lobby & rooms. Our room did not have a refrig, but beds were comfy & had a great nights sleep. Above average breakfast. But did not have trademark cinnamon rolls, had a note that said sorry for the inconvenience. Front desk staff referred us to a mexican restaurant, that was delicious (Fiesta Mexican Restaurant) & within a block of hotel. $81 rate, which was nice. Hotel is very close to Lake Powell & the amenities of that area.
I stayed here over 2 nights while boating at lake powell. The hotel is I suppose "standard" being the same as every other holiday inn, but I found it well placed, spacious, comfortable, and great value for money. I booked with travelocity but had the option of taking a fixed booking - not able to be cancelled - and only paid $32 per night. The breakfasts were great with plenty to choose from and all served in a clean airy room. Staff were helpful and the rooms kept clean during my stay. Definately worth the money. Also conveniently placed only 300 yards from Safeways where you can buy the aftersun cream you will need when you foolishly get burnt while on the speedboat on Lake Powell (Hmmm)
Standard hotel in the centre of Page. The rooms were comfortable and spacious, although the complimentary continental breakfast was nothing special. Pleasant reception staff.
Great location, nice room, great breakfast, elivator, friendly and helpfull reception, 24h tea & coffee, 53$ in Oct. 04.
Good Hoel - Good Location
This was a god hotel in the center of Page. We did a trip from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon, to Page, to Bryce Canyon and then back to Las Vegas. Page is a good stopping point between Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon. We did a river raft ride while in Page, which was fantastic. Hotel was clean. The complimentary breakfast was fine.
