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!

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.

We stayed at the San Juan Motel for 2 nights while vacationing. The carpet had big stains on it in many places, the sheets were rough and the beds were rock hard. We had to get the blankets we travel with to pad the bed! We had our little dog with us and she got a little muddy after a... More

We are sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your stay. I don't know exactly what room that you stayed in but we had recently replaced some of our mattresses with memory foam mattresses but we do understand that people do have different tastes regarding the firmness of their beds. As for the sheets being changed every night, the... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review! With everyone's busy schedule we know that, unfortunately, all too often people don't take the time to write reviews if they have had a pleasant stay, only if they felt like it did not meet their standards.
