The San Juan Motel offered us a relaxing, vacation stay including a comfortable, clean, pet-friendly room, exceptionally friendly front desk assistance, reasonably priced lodging, and an outstanding breakfast.

Let me start out by saying that I've stayed in some pretty bad places before and I honestly wouldn't have even taken the time to write this review if my experience hadn't been topped off with terrible service. Here's the list: Door leaked in rain and there were stains, (or some kind of grossness), on the door, AC unit not... More

We had room 1 right on the corner. Because of that we were able to leave windows open to get good air circulation. There isn't an air conditioner in that room but there was a ceiling fan. It made him uncomfortable that the windows were open. The restroom is very small but servicable

The cabins that they remodeled in 2013 were falling apart, the out door porch had animal droppings all over it , and the railings were falling off. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. I would probably not stay in there cabins again.

Our original booking at another hotel was botched by that hotel. San Juan accommodated 6 adults on short notice and were so friendly and helpful. We had the Deluxe suite and it was perfect for us (except for only having one bathroom). It was clean and anything we needed they immediately brought to us. Thanks for saving our reunion trip....

My family came by towards the night. The guy at the front desk was very friendly. We got one of their cabins. Cabin 5. First off the room seems clean. It is 2 beds and has a kitchen. Anyways, if you have younger kids I would not recommend cabin 5. In the shower there was very poor lighting. I didn't... More

This is a great motel for families. Large grassy area, close to the stream so the kids can fish, and warm cabins for that true Colorado feel. The staff is friendly--we needed more towels and they were at our door in a jiffy. I think the manager brought them and checked to make sure we were comfortable. He also told... More

The hotel is well situated and in walking distance to the springs. The prices are very reasonable but I suppose you get what you pay for. We took a cabin for 90$ which had two rooms and three beds. the cabin was really run down. The carpets were shabby and the bed covers had holes in them. The WiFi connection... More

We stayed here for a weekend trip. Usually, we have a week long condo, but this was perfect as a base for our running around. The motel provides a simple continental breakfast. The room is small, dated, but clean. It rained most of the weekend, but we never needed the furnace. We selected a room, rather than cabin. Maybe next... More

We had business to take care of in Pagosa and didn't want to drive at night on Rt. 84 or 160 and have an elk or deer hop out in front of our new car, so we stayed one night at the San Juan. The people who work @ the San Juan Motel and Cabins couldn't be kinder or more... More
