“Disappointing”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We have been coming here for many years..We made our reservations for the July 4th weekend, we called to confirm the week before, only to be told that the new owner didn't want to honor our request, but they finally agreed. When we arrived, front desk personnel were unfriendly, had trouble operating the key card machine,& had other guests coming back because their keys didn't work... then for the continental breakfast the next morning.. there was no cereal, no juice, nothing for the kids to drink unless we wanted to give them coffee (which we didn't). The rates have also been raised significantly.
We have seen many changes over the years, but the new management seems to be interested in $$ only and is not interested in retaining guests year after year or providing a quality experience. You may as well stay at the Anasazi located at Bullfrog!!!! You'll get the same impersonal service.

The staff was very nice. Rooms were clean and cold. AC is a big deal when at Powell. The breakfast was not very good. Little variety and only coffee to drink. Also it is more than 10 minutes from the lake. More like 20 to travel the winding road and stop at the check center to the lake. Not bad for how much you save over the other resort though.

We found the hotel to be clean and well maintained. The staff was nice and friendly. We were planning on driving to Arizona but it was getting late so we decided to stop for the night. We were somewhat reluctant to stay at Ticaboo due to reading the previous review earlier in the day. We took a chance and asked to see a room and the desk girl could not have nicer. After inspection we checked in and found the entire property above satisfactory.
Better TV and less expensive gas would be nice but as my wife said, we are in a remote paradise and paradise has it price.
Simply beautiful area!

My family spent one night, just last week. Upon checking in, the front desk person left to check on our room, about 5 minutes later came down and said it was ready. We went into our room, my daughter went into the bathroom to use it only to find the toilet had not been flushed or cleaned from the occupants before us. After a talk with the front desk, someone soon came up and cleaned the mess. We had 2 queen beds in our room, upon turning down our beds to go to sleep, both beds had hair on the sheets. It wasn't our hair as we had just turned down the bedspreads. As it was late, we were tired from a long drive, we did the best we could to try to sleep and get out of there as soon as we could the next morning.
Many years ago I stayed one night at Ticaboo Lodge, before it closed down and opened under new management. That stay years ago was a pleasant one, this one was a nightmare. My family and I have been going to Lake Powell every year for 15 years, we usually stay at BullFrog Lodge, next year, I will spend the extra $100 to stay at BullFrog.

I spent 3 nights at the Ticaboo Resort and fell in love with the place! We had 2 deluxe rooms side by side and had a blast. The hotel is clean and the staff very helpful. It was the perfect location for a base camp and just a short distance to Bull Frog.
We enjoyed the pool and cook out area - 4 star. The restaurant on property was casual with good food, fun staff and family affordable!
Gas prices at the pump inside the resort are high but that is to be expected in such a remote area....(I had to remind my husband of that)
The resort has home sites for sale on the property at a price that seems like a steal. I am reluctant to write this due to not wanting my private oasis to be discovered and developed. Ticaboo/Lake Powell is truly one of the last great places in this country!

The Ticaboo lodge is locally run and has very friendly staff. The rooms are clean and tidy, reasonably sized and well appointed. Our fridge was poked and the 'guy' at the counter was onto it straight away and sorted it out with a new fridge.
Also gotta put in a good word for the Lokals Restaurant next door. Run by a very enthusiatic dude and he has the staff and food well sorted - low key but excels where it counts.
Overall a great base camp/rendezvous spot prior to an awesome holiday on Lake Powell.

Room Tip: Be nice to the receptionist ... ?

I have stayed there twice and have another reservation for October. It is very remote but so peaceful. Lokals is a great addition located next door and serves beer Yum.....

The staff is great and very accommodating with all your needs.

If you want to see the stars like you have never seen before don't miss this spot. Only minutes from lake powell and they rent boats and razors.

Room Tip: book the deluxe rooms they have been renovated.
