Grounds, location, and staff were great. Cabin #2's heater wasn't working at arrival. Staff brought a space heater in. Once a group arrived to stay in the adjoining cabin (#1) the power went out 5 times and we had to keep flipping the breaker box ourselves throughout the night, every time we tried to turn the space heater on the...

I really want to give the San Juan Motel a good rating, but the noise coming through the connecting door to the adjoining room was totally unacceptable. The mattress was firm but not hard, probably going to need to be replaced soon. Decent enough. The room was spacious, very clean and in good condition. Unlike the First Inn across the... More

This is the third year we have enjoyed this quaint cabin getaway. We just love it! It's been a perfect fit for us. It's a bit rustic yet clean and our cabin has recently been redone. The staff is amazingly friendly. The hot tub hits the spot every night. The location is awesome, as we walked to Kips Cantina, our... More

When I travel alone I tried to find the cheapest place within walking distance of the most attractions. The San Juan Motel was relatively inexpensive compared to nearby hotels, and it was within walking distance to some very nice restaurants, bars, and liquor stores.The room itself was small, but clean and well appointed in rustic cowboy style. I had driven... More

I have stayed here before in the winter as it is close to Wolf Creek and you don't have to drive through town to get there. Anyway, really enjoyed the location as I could walk to town since it was late summer and the weather was warm. Taking parking out of the equation in downtown Pagosa always lets me relax... More

Passing through Pagosa Springs on a motorcycle tour through Colorado, we just needed a place to stay for the night. I read all the reviews of this terrible place prior to booking, and even though I knew better, I went ahead and made the reservation. I equate "rustic" with "old" and this place is certainly both. We asked for a... More

I was fully expecting this review as the previous one was pulled from Trip Advisor since it did not stay within their guidelines. It does remain a mystery as to why you had the problem that you are referring to and our housekeepers did not find it in advance and we greatly apologize for that and I was happy to... More

The staff was so nice and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. It is a cute place decorated like cabins. Everything was clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is in a good area and away from the noise of the highway and shopping areas. The staff would provide some items we... More

I called the San Juan Motel just a few hours before we departed on our trip. Not only did they have a room with 2 queen beds available, they would also leave a map/info on the door and leave our key under the door mat for us since we were arriving well past 10:30 office closing time. How nice! My... More

From getting help to the motel after being on the wrong highway to check-out, the staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable and comfortable! Our cabin was clean and furnished with everything we needed for 4 days. The location of the motel is within walking distance to hot springs pools, a trailhead to Resevoir... More

A group of us have stayed at the San Juan on two occassions this summer. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I would recommend the hotel and feel there is great value for the price. Location is convenient to downtown and restaurants.
