The people who run this motel bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable since the pass was closed so we couldn't go skiing. We got stuck in the snow and they provided salt and shovels to get us out. There is a breakfast room with fruit and cereals and a hot tub. Unfortunately the hot tub was out of... More

We stayed there last week and the cabins are simple and convenient to the rental shops and food. All of the people there are wonderful and they are so representative of small town "we want you here" type of people.

The San Juan is a clean and comfortable motel on the east side of Pagosa Springs with easy access to town and the hot springs. We stayed there twice in November and found it was just right for us. The rooms have what we'd call a "mini kitchen" with a sink, fridge and microwave. The only odd experience - we... More

Stayed for 2 days while "blizzard" came thru. Pet Friendly. Motel and cabins. Only one King size room on property. Seemed odd. Along San Juan River. Furnishings well worn but functional. Bring your own pillows unless you like flat as a pancake!

This an excellent, locally owned and operated, motel. The people are genuinely kind and treat each visitor as they would treat a friend. The rooms were clean and homey with that log cabin feel. Beds were a bit hard for my liking, but not hard enough to cause problems. Very small shower, but being from Oklahoma, loved the great water... More

I have always wanted to stay here. It is a mom and pop motel, and the rooms are small, but very nice. The bathroom had just been renovated, and the bed was very comfortable. I got the cheap rate - queen bed, table, TV in the room. It was very nice... The room I had did not have all the... More

The motel room was very comfortable. The staff was helpful, providing a hair dryer upon request. The breakfast was simple but filling. We saw deer grazing on the back of the property. A nice strip shopping mall was across the street, and a farmers' market was at the far end of the motel property. The Pagosa Springs Museum is a... More

What a dump. Mouse poop or bugs on the floor in the bathroom. The mattress was as hard as a rock. Thought about sleeping on the squishy carpet but was afraid something would bite me. I'd sleep in my car before I'd stay here again.

We stayed in room 52, only 1 neighbor, no connecting interior door. Quiet, clean, simple room. Great location, walked to everything in downtown area. Farmer's market right next door on Saturday morning. Got great pastries, and tamales to go. Did not sample their breakfast so cannot comment. I did call front desk about 10pm to ask neighbors sitting outside our... More

Well, there are good points about this place. The location is very good, the property is beautiful and it is dog friendly. We stayed in cabin 7 - great that there was a fridge and stove - however, beds/pillows were unbearably uncomfortable and the A/C worked as well as it could but it got warm in there. My suggestions: bring... More
