Ticaboo is a very small town and lodging is limited to this hotel and the lodge in Bullfrog at the marina. The room is clean and quiet. Looks like it was recently updated. Room was basic with minimal toiletries. There was shampoo but no conditioner. I accidently used the tiny bottle of lotion on my hair thinking it was the conditioner. I liked that there was a sink in the bathroom as well as well as another vanity outside. The small restaurant next door was closed for renovations. There is only a small diner at the Sinclair station just down the road or 10 miles down the road at the marina which offers full dinners and cocktails and has a nice view to Lake Powell. There is no continental breakfast only coffee in the lobby. Also they charged a quarter for ice and no cups were provided in the room. We grabbed a bagel at the diner in the morning, but thought for the money we paid we should have gotten breakfast included. There is a place also next store to rent atvs or for adventure tours. The surrrounding is lovely and was fun to explore. This is fine for a nights stay if you are visiting the area.

We have stayed here multiple times over the years either coming to or leaving Lake Powell. On this trip we arrived about midnight. No night-time manager was on-duty but we saw our name on an envelope with our name on it at the front desk cage. Luckily we had 2 keys since one key did not work. BOTTOM LINE: This is a over-priced hotel with few amenities. One only stays here because nothing else is available in the area except at Bullfrog near the boat launch ramp. The room was clean but pretty "plain Jane". Air conditioning worked and was on when we arrived. Room ice is not free, it costs 25 cents. The restaurant next door was closed for repairs. The parking lot is compacted dirt & gravel. There is no continental breakfast. Our room had no shower curtain strangely enough which made showering interesting. Bedding was nice and we had a good nights sleep. On top of your room bill is a 7% tax and a $8 per day "energy surcharge" since they have to create their own power by generator. They do offer a 10% discount for AAA & AARP members. We ate breakfast down the road at Off-Shore Marina. In Hanksville this room would have cost you $99. You are paying for convenience to Bullfrog at Lake Powell. Nothing special to brag about here. Just a clean simply room. MY RATING: 6/10. SUGGESTION: For about the same cost or a little more, check out Defiance House Lodge (Bullfrog) for their lodging. You can get up in the morning and on the water faster if you stay there. Their attached restaurant is MUCH better and has an excellent view of the lake.

This area is beautiful and although we loved our trip we feel like the hotel could be better. Could be cleaner, pool could be cleaner, all around needs a little updating. We’ve stayed here before because for the area there are not much options. We just think the potential of this place could be so much better.

Spent the weekend with spouse and a group of off road enthusiasts The hotel is very close to Lake Powell and driven past it many times. Met with manger Ray and he made us feel like family, he showed us around the area, beautiful bluffs, slot canyons. This is a hidden gem, we didn’t see another group of people on the trails the whole weekend. The rooms were clean with updated beds, bedding and fluffy towels. The adventure center offers, biking, hiking, canyoneering, off road and UTV trips, guided or unguided.

We arrived at Ticaboo and were strangely greeted by the front office worker. There were four in our party and she seemed upset by all our questions. We were excited to use the pool but found out it was closed for the season. We asked if there was breakfast and the clerk said NO (found out the next day that they did have 24 hr coffee which was not mentioned....the lights in the coffee area were off so didn't expect coffee). Next we asked about ice and were told that we needed a quarter. I must admit that the room was clean and the bed was fairly comfortable. we sat outside around the pool as there were tables and chairs. We did not buy from the restaurant because of the limited "pub" type food. What was Most upsetting was when we checked out the next day. Our room was about 120 and I realized that the woman said something about 200 dollars....I asked my husband who supplied his card but he didn't have paperwork and couldn't remember. We checked out with another woman and asked for a receipt...she looked at her screen and said O No....we asked what and she said we were charged another 200plus ....??? She did a reversal on my card and I need to follow up...but can't understand the additional charge. My group told her about the poor attitude of the woman the night before and she just shook her head. The interesting thing is we met up with a couple we met at the hotel the night before and asked them to check their bill. We were told that the woman in the morning wouldn't give them a receipt and told them to check their bill on line.

This was a great place to rest after a day on the water. We came in and had a great shower then went out eat.. the food was great also., then back to the room for a nice cool rest.. We didn't mind the drive tfrom the rooom to the lake and then back to the room. It was very nice to get in out of the wind...

This was an adequate hotel in a very out of the way place. Rooms were clean and comfortable but a little dated. No place to eat nearby when we arrived in late evening. and by nearby I mean 40 miles. It has a large parking lot and a nice pool area. You can get to it via a ferry which is unique.

We stayed here one night on a road trip vacation. There is nothing else in the area except for the Lake Powell Lodge. The room was comfortable and the restaurant had good food. We had a little confusion with the time zones and the front desk was so nice about it when we got back from the lake by 5 minutes from check out. We would definitely stay there again if we are out that way.

They mixed up our reservation by a day and were extremely reluctant to accept responsibility. They nearly tried to make us stay in our car and at first refused to accept accountability for their errors. After 30 minutes of them saying “this isn’t how hotels work, you can’t just check in whenever and check out whenever” and rolling their eyes they finally “accommodated is by moving others rooms around” they still refused to accept that they had made a mistake. We were only supposed to be charged $150 and our card was charged $200. There was a giant lizard in the hallway, and the room was disgusting. Every year the hotel gets more ran down and the employees are less and less personable. The service was terrible. We travel a lot and know how hotels work, and this definitely wasn’t the way one should ever be ran.

We came off the lake around midnight. When we got to our room neither room key we had would open the door. We walked up front desk to get them reset, the front desk was left unoccupied so we looked for a number to call for help, needless to say there wasn't one. We ended up sleeping on the couches in the lobby. The front desk opened at 8 am. So far we have not received any refund. The property needs an update and new management as this is their fault. The staff was very friendly and tried to help.
