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

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the San Juan Motel in July and it was the worst vacation experience of our 45 years together. The same long black hairs on the bath tub when we checked in were there the next day after they were suppose to clean. The sheets were not changed for our second night and... More

We are sorry did not enjoy your stay with us. As with most properties that offer accommodations, we do not change sheets every single night but every third night for stay over guest or unless a guest request it, than we are happy to change them. However, beds are made and the rooms cleaned daily as long as a do... More

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.

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. So, once again on behalf of the entire staff, Thank you... More

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 are not sure why if you were so dissatisfied with every aspect of the cabin when you first arrived that you did not bring this to our immediate attention, allowing us to the opportunity to either move you to another cabin or room or to refund your money so you could find another property that would have better suited...

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
