We just went to Page yesterday after a trip to the North Rim. We were going to spend the night but EVERYTHING was booked, even the flophouse motel we checked. We gave up and ended up driving straight home in a 6 hour marathon. One standard 3 star chain was listed at $279 for a basic room, but that was even already sold. Every single room in each hotel we checked had the lights on.

They can't all be going to Antelope Canyon, or can they?

It was the same way in St. George, the place we stayed Mon was fully booked for Tues. I was thinking of auctioning my parking space at the North Rim when we left as the lot was packed. (REALLY good lunch at the Lodge BTW!)

What is going on? I never heard of so much tourism this time of year. Seems tour busses are taking up big blocks of rooms. Are there just a zillion baby boomers checking off their bucket lists? What gives? Tell me. Pleeeze!

You might want to Google, "things to do around Page, AZ". Seems you missed a few attractions.

Tons of Asians. They have discovered Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend.
Coming in second are the Brits..........many of their tour companies are also incorporating Page.

(We lucked out in early April of this year.......got a fantastic room at the best hotel in the area for about $160 (booked a month in advance).....and the hotel/area wasn't too crowded. I guess that's before the tourist traffic starts to really heat up. We got decent weather in the upper 60s and 70s.
There were crowds to be sure, but not what you are describing.

OP...It's busy nearly all year around, it's popularity must be because of it's scenic beauty and many things to do.
You need to do a winter snow visit sometime, it would blow your mind.

Yeah, the last time we were there was in Feburary and we had northern AZ and Southern UT pretty much to ourselves. Beautiful with a few inches of snow. That trip we stayed in Kayenta. There was no hotel problems. I expected it to be busy in summer, but thought after Labor Day it would ease up.

Anybody want to go in halfsies on a new hotel in Page? Probably be a gold mine! LOL

Did you try the Lake Powell Resort? Just curious. Ten minutes outside of Page.
