Anasazi Restaurant -- wedge salad. Pictures say it all. I'm sick to my stomach after one bite. Horrible how bad this place has gone down hill. Spectacular view and nice remodel. Food sucks. Bad management continues. South Lake places are so much better.

We appreciate the feedback on your meal, and when provided at the table, we are more than happy to return, or exchange food items and make sure things are prepared as you expect, and that they meet your "taste" expectations. The "black and bleu" salad is normally a very popular menu item that is well recieved with positive feedback and...

The reviews are pretty accurate for this hotel. The beds are comfortable, the view is very nice, staff is fantastic and the rooms are dated. With that said, we were there for one night before boarding our houseboat and it was fine. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. Our servers in the restaurant were fantastic and they...

Thank you for your helpful feedback and compliments to our restaurant staff. I'm glad we accomodated your group and provided memorable service. The staff enjoyed your friendliness and good nature as well. Remoteness does play a large role in all of our logistics for products and services, but being in "the middle of no where" has unmatched beauty. I hope...

Excellent place to stay prior to launching out on the Houseboat the next day. The service and food were excellent. The room was comfortable and clean. We brought our dog and it was not an issue. I would definitely stay here again.

The setting was peaceful & relaxing. No bright lights outside to disrupt relaxation & sleeping. The room & linens were both very clean. The beds were comfortable & I slept great! Which was very nice since I usually do not sleep well away from home. It was quiet, no noise from outside or in the hallway.The room temp was nice...

I have been coming to the Defiance House Lodge for over 20 years and this years staff seems to be the friendliest yet!!! We actually had to go down to the lake two times in the past 2 weeks and I was surprised at how friendly and happy the staff is this year. The hotel is very clean and as...

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was clean and well kept. Great adventure location for fishing, wildlife watching, hiking, exploring and just relaxing. Went the second week of April and the weather was great and it was not crowded at all. Family had a great time. Definite memory maker!

Our family has been going to lake Powell for generations, now we are the "old" one's with our Grandchildren enjoying the ambiance and the wonders the lake has to offer. We always have a great time, camping, hiking, swimming, boating and most importantly building memories. We always enjoy a nice end to our vacation at the Defiance House Lodge. The...

Family unit ended up being a double wide trailer, but was surprisingly comfortable and roomy. Floor was a little squeaky and walls were thin but a/c worked well and the location was excellent. My group stayed for one night before renting a houseboat the next morning. The main building is a bit of a walk up a hill. The restaurant...

These accommodations and restaurant were very nice especially considering they are located in the middle of nowhere on the shores of Lake Powell. It's an Aramak motel and restaurant with average food and good accommodations.

This is a great place, overlooking Lake Powell. What you need is close. The boat ramp is within a half mile. The restaurant is also great. We were there in October this year 2014. The only thing is that breakfast don't start till 8am at this time of year. Would be nice if it was at 7am. Everyone was very...
