"Weekend Scuba Trip"
The hotel has recently remodeled their rooms but was able to keep the nostalgic look from the outside. The grounds are spectacular with large old trees and maintained flower gardens and grass. The Crater was easy to schedule time in and we played in the activity center (pool and ping pong) in the afternoons. While there are other new hotels in the area, […] we loved staying at the classic homestead resort Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Indifferent staff. Warm pool,beautiful grounds. Great restaurant. Toilet was broken, doors falling off tv cabinet. Is go back for the pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing Hotel Rooms"
For the amount i paid ($106), I was so disappointed in the room. I got a garden room (which is the cheapest) but it was terribly out dated and the bathroom floor was filthy. The white tile was supposed to have white grout but it was so dirty that the grout looked black. The door knob to the bathroom was so sticky that i didn't touch it with my hands. […] The bath was cramped. The walls and ceiling were red so you couldn't tell if they were clean. The room itself smelled. The room was very small. The only nice was the TV and the bed. I will never stay there again. I've stayed at cleaner and bigger rooms for much less in Vegas of all places. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a quiet weekend"
We stayed at the resort for easter and to swim in the crater. The room was a bit small and the coffee pot was in the bathroom, which I thought was weird. There were also coffee stains on the bathroom floor, which made me thing they weren't clean. However, the resort grounds were beautiful and quiet, and the restaraunt was great. The crater was interesting, […] but there were way too many people learning to dive at the same time we were there, which was a bit annoying. I think they should have seperate times for "floaters" and divers. Overall we had a good time and will probably return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This met our needs just fine. It was clean and the service was friendly. The buildings need to be updated badly. We were surprised at how different the buildings actually looked compared to the picture on the website. The outdoor pool was closed because it was winter but it didn't look like it was functioning anyway. The indoor pool was open but looked […] rather dated. Overall the stay was fine. It's in a rural area but we wanted something that was "away." We visited the Homestead Crater and it was a nice swim. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoy the resort atmosphere and the quiet setting. Beautiful area with plenty to do.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice for family"
Very enjoyable. My children love it. We like the pool and the hotel area. The room are big and clean.mGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel and close to a lot to do."
We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was all very kind and courteous. The only drawback we had with our stay is the bed was hard as a rock. But to their defense my wife and I have a pillow top mattress with a 4 inch memory foam pad on top of that. So about any bed would be hard to us.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We will go back!"
We loved our stay! We aren't the "have to stay in a 5 star hotel" type. As long as the rooms are clean and the hotel has most amenities and good service then we are pretty east to please. We LOVE Midway. It is close enough for us to go on a last minute mini vacation and the homestead is great for the whole family! We LOVED the heated pool and hot tub. […] The continental breakfast was yummy! We will definitely be back soon! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"It was good"
Overall good experience, only downfalls bubbles still in tub and really for almost 200 your seriously going to charge for the bottled water in the room!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay, but not "all inclusive"."
We wanted an escape for an evening away after some bad news that day. We booked The Homestead Cottage. It was a nice getaway, but a little pricey. We went thinking we would soak in mineral tubs, because in the past the swimming pool was a mineral pool. We found out the crater there is the only hot mineral water area left, and they charge to enter.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was convenient to the major ski resorts. We were here for the Sundance Film Fest. Staff was very friendly excellent service. Although not too many restaurants to choose from that were near by. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was a nice hotel/resort."
We were disappointed when the Homestead Resort bumped us across the street to their sister hotel, the Zermot, when they over-booked their reservations. Apparently because we booked our reservation through Expedia and not directly with the Homestead we were changed first. We were given a basement room at the Zermot and felt very much like second-rate […] customers. It made us question booking through Expedia rather than the hotels because of the way we were treated.

"Stay was OK"
We had a couple of issues that came up. No soap in the bathroom and a clogged toilet before we got there. We called in to the front desk and we did not get any service until 2 hours after we called in. Later that evening we tried the fireplace and it was not working either. This time we called it in they were there quickly. There was only 1 person at […] the reception desk and there was a line on people when we checked in. There was two of us who checked in and they gave us one fudge sample, not one for each of us but one sample. (interesting). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint resort with a family feel and service"
We are a family living in Salt Lake City and wanted to get away for a night. The Homestead Resort provided an excellent chance for the family to be together, share some delicious meals and enjoy the comfort and spaciousness of the cottages. Staff were helpful, polite and friendly. Unfortunately at the Crater, our experience was extremely poor. One staff […] member was extremely rude and humiliated our family in public, which was totally unnecessary. I would like to point out that the Crater is run by separate management who would benefit from learning from the Homestead staff on basic customer service. We would return to the Homestead Resort with extended family and friends but never to the Crater again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great winter stay"
nice. The snow was beautiful. Wish we knew we needed reservation to get in the hot spring cavern and the hot spring pool was closed. Disappointing for that but the room was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very exceptional Resort."
We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The food at Simon's restaurant was amazing (esp. the fried green tomatoes)! Staff was very welcoming and friendly. I cannot wait to go back there during warmer months to enjoy the rest of their extra activities they have to offer. Their holiday decorations were just breathtaking and the cozy warm fire places in the reception […] office was a great way to warm up and have a little down time with drinks before dinner. Even though this may seem like a great place to take your family for a getaway, it is more of a couple resort. Many couples go there to get away and lavish in the experience. They really know how to make things very romantic feel to the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was okay."
I thought it was great, but old. Our room was really dusty, which kept us coughing all night. The continental breakfast was wonderful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"quite clean room. Very comfortable"
WE enjoyed our stay because the staff was very kind, the room was clean,comfortable and quiteGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful stay at the Homestead and we stayed in one of the Cottages which was quiet and beautiful and very inviting. The staff at the hotel desk where very helpful and extremely nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
My friend and I took a little break and traveled a short distance to stay at the Homestead at their low season. The Queen cottage was very clean, comfortable, well furnished and spacious. We had a microwave and small fridge. The lighting could be a bit brighter considering that in November the nights are long. When we had a problem with the TV reception, […] they immediately sent someone over to take care of it. It was quiet and relaxing and we enjoyed walking around. The area is inviting and walking in town, in nearby parks and such or even in the resort itself is very enjoyable. The breakfast was the best continental breakfast with plenty of fresh fruits, homemade jams and such, coffee was excellent along with top-of-the-notch pastries. Lupe made sure everything was to your liking! The front desk was always willing to help. Our stay was very enjoyable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Just what we needed"
We had tickets to the Heber Valley Cowboy Poetry and our concert was in the town of Midway. The location of the hotel was perfect. We had to take our dog at the last minute. No problem. We had never stayed there before so we didn't really know which building to checked in at. Drove through the quaint little village (that is what it feels like) turned […] around then parked and walked to what we assumed was the "main building". The auditor was very friendly. Gave us map of the hotel grounds along with a sample of yummy fudge and explained the amenities. We found our little cottage named the "Fairway Cottage" next to the golf course. The cottage had a vintage look and the inside was equally charming. The room was very spacious with a queen bed and a hide-a-bed sofa. The room was very clean. There was evidence of them even vacuuming the couch as you could see the marks on the couch. They had complimentary Wi-Fi and flat screen TV, and a coffee pot with cups (which is convenient because the walk to the complimentary breakfast is a stroll thru the park, which was equally nice but a little brisk). The bed was very comfortable and the linens were up-scale. Several of the HVCP venues were held across the street at the Zermatt Hotel which was very convenient. We also are scuba certified and would have dove that morning as check out isn't until noon but we had other plans for the day. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a romantic getaway, or extended stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Peaceful, charming feel but not especially fancy"
Enjoyed visiting the Crater and loved the open courtyard feel with squirrels playing in the trees. Not new and fancy if that's what you like.Genuine Expedia guest review
I love this place. It's not the fanciest place, but it's SO relaxing. I love the grounds.Genuine Expedia guest review
We went to Midway to enjoy the Fall foliage and did just that. Had a wonderful stay. We didn't realize that Midway transitions from Summer to Fall and is very very quite mid October to mid November. We truly enjoyed the surroundings and can't wait to come back again and enjoy another season. Our first night we ate at Simon's which is the restaurant […] on the property food was very good and reasonable in price. We had Gelato at the sister property the Zurmatt across the street, it was excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Charming and full of class"
We had a very large and luxurious room. It had a fireplace and large jetted tub. It was very clean and niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful setting, our room was good too."
Our room was nice and clean, we enjoyed a private back patio and large front common porch area. The fall leaves were beautiful and the grounds are nice. The area has interesting geothermal pots and the largest of them is on this property and available for a swim or snorkeling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great night out"
Excellent accommodations. Really appreciated the free shuttleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We took a two day break, played golf and spent time reading at the pool. The room was comfortable, enjoyed breakfast and lunch on the patio overlooking the pond and golf course. Dinner in Heber at the Snake Creek Grill was we excellent. In addition to golf at the Homestead, there is the Wasatch Golf Course, a 36 hole course five minutes away.Genuine Expedia guest review
We made the reservation at the last minute and had to wait thirty minutes for the hotel to get the information. The resort is beautiful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expected a resort, got a motel"
$207.00 for a room that was supposed to be a Garden Suite. The room was smaller than my last stay at a hotel that was 42.00 a night. The room looked like it had been pulled from the 60's and we could hear guests in the rooms next to us and under us. The pictures of the room were NOT pictures of any room I saw. They make it out to be this beautiful room […] with a view of a garden when it actually is a very ugly, small room that looks out at a lawn with a ton of trees and 13 flowers. Very disappointing when I walked in and it totally ruined my romantic night with my sweetheart. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I grew up coming to the Homestead, in fact, my parents met there. It has a very quaint, antique, historical feel to it. The crater swim is fantastic. Beautiful area. Beds were comfortable, pools and hot tubs are dated but usable. This is a very old property. It has been well maintained, but it does feel old and a little tired. It is a fun change of […] pace from typical chain hotels. Would recommend to anyone to try it out for a night or two. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, friendly resort"
Very pleased with the historical charm, excellent meals & friendly staff. Did not float in crater because it wasn't important to me. We stayed in the guest house cottage which was like a small apartment. My only disappointment was the jacuzzi tub. There were lots of stains/oxidation around jets causing a greenish discoloration which made it uninvit […] ing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We stayed at the homestead over a Thursday-Friday getaway. Impressed with the beautiful and relaxing location of Midway, Utah!

"Extreme value for the dollar."
We were traveling through the area and found the Homestead Resort on Hotels.com and questioned it based on the price. We were extremely happy we booked the reservation. We had a fantastic stay and would call this a fantastic value!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is not your normal hotel. It is more what you would expect if you work working on a dude ranch or "homestead" and were staying in the guest house on property. Although the amenities are much nicer here. The gardens are beautiful and if you are a golfer - this is your place in the summer. I quick swim in the crater is a delightful break and if you […] scuba a fun change from other drives. The water is about 96 degrees and goes about 60 feet deep. Book early, it gets busy most all days. This is luxury, just not they way most other hotels think about it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor attitude and room was terrible."
checked in to room, room was on 2nd floor when our friends made reservations after us and received a ground floor room. after discussing the problem with the front desk clerk, she could not seem able to find us another room. After some time, she finally came up with a different room and gave me the key. After my wife and I inspected the new room, we […] found it to be tiny and not very clean. My wife then returned to the front desk and talked to the manager and he was able to find us a viable room, not great but viable. Our friends who had checked in, found their remote would not work on the TV and called the front desk and received no satisfaction whatsoever. I would not stay at this place again for anything. The restaraunts and food were great, too bad the hotel staff was so very poor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful Setting, Average Room"
We had a ground floor king room in the Garden View building. It was clean, but smelled musty, the bed was uncomfortable, and we could hear every footstep in the room above us. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and serene. The restaurants were good. Swimming in The Crater is a very unique experience, but be aware that you have to have a reservation, […] and it's a bit pricey for a 40 minute swim. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved this place. Someone else had complained about peeling paint and being rundown. So I was a little nervous. But the resort is beautiful. some of the building exteriors do have some peeling paint, but the interior is beautifully done and clean. Bed was comfortable, which I never say about a hotel. We went to the crater with the kids, expensive, but […] loved it and worth it. Definitely get the snorkeling gear. Thanks Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing Get away"
When we checked in they asked us if we wanted to upgrade to a king bed and when we did we stayed in the St. Andrew area. It was quiet and very nice and clean. The food at Fannies Grill was amazing.

"One of our favorite places to get away to"
The Homestead is always a fun and relaxing trip away from the city. We love the charming, quaint atmosphere and that it is not like the big resorts around it, like Zermatt. The only draw back was that our air conditioner struggled to keep our room cool, which is the first time in all of our years of going there we've had that problem. This resort we […] would highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
