Stayed at this motel for 3 nights during second week of March. Room was plenty big and beds were comfortable. My only complaint is that the door to the adjoinning room was very thin. You could see the light comming through at the top of the door at night, and you could hear every word spoken by the people in... More

We pulled up after reading the marquee message "cabins starting at $70". The place was virtually empty even though it was spring break. The lady in the office offered us an "original room" for nearly $80. She assured us the $70 cabins were full and that she was busy with spring-break folks. Sitting here this morning, after watching her empty... More

We stayed here so that we could have our dog with us on our road trip through Pagosa Springs. Some of us went skiing at Wolf Creek, which was wonderful, and the San Juan motel gave us a discount when we showed them ski passes. The motel is located on the east side of the town, which makes it easy... More

Location: as other reviews mention, great location next to food, stores, rental store, and restaurants. Service: excellent. Everyone was very nice and friendly, and took the time to talk with us and give recommendations. Made the stay very nice. Jacuzzi: excellent! Nice and warm (was cleaned, took 1 day to warm up to a nice 104F). Cabin #7: wouldn't recommend... More

Thank you for your review. You are correct, even though cabin #7 has been updated even as far as reconfiguring the bathroom from its original design, this cabin is less suitable for families than some of our other cabins. We apologize the can openers did not operate. If we had known we would have replaced them as we keep new... More

Very affordable and close to the mountain for easy access to snowboarding. Rented a 2 bedroom cabin with a couple of friends and the space and kitchen were awesome. Clean place to crash after a long day on the mountain and the hot tub does the soar legs good. Breakfast is a plus but it is just a simple no... More

We stayed in one of the recently updated cabins in October and were a little disappointed with the updates. The gas heaters were so noisy all night that it was difficult to sleep and the beds felt like there was nothing on top of the box springs. This is a really great location and the exterior of the cabins and... More

We appreciate your review and apologize that you found the wall heater units noisey. If you are not accustomed to wall heaters we understand that the sound of the flame kicking on and them warming up can be distracting. We wished we had known at the front desk as we could have either offered to move you to a motel... More

The motel was nice, clean, quiet, beautiful view of the mountains, property extends to the San Juan river where you can explore. Only - was the 2x2 shower, very tight. Front desk was courteous, breakfast was plenty composed of coffee, milk, cereals, muffins and other sweet carbs, fresh oranges, bananas, orange juice.

We are happy you enjoyed your stay other than the fact that you found the shower area confining. We try to be sure always advise our guest that the smaller "original" motel rooms are our smallest rooms but for a small upgrade charge you could have a much larger and newer room that has a tub/shower combination.
