I have stayed here twice, most recently in March 2015. I will purposely route my trip through Mexican Hat just to stay here. The café is a fun spot, with attentive service and good food (Navajo Taco is my favorite). The staff are kind and responsive to your needs. The setting, along the San Juan River, is very nice -...

First, the large neon sign on the roof reads "San Juan MOTEL", with the slightly smaller neon sign under it reading "CAFE-BEER". No mention of "INN". Check-in for the motel is done inside the San Juan Trading Post. The entire motel, trading post, cafe complex is built/sandwiched between the river and the red cliffs - on a narrow strip of... More

Our room was clean and very spacious. The air conditioner was working hard to keep the room comfortable but we were not hot. The room look recently rentivated. It had a nice view looking out from the window.

If this hotel was in the midst of tons of competition I doubt I would have stumbled in here. But, this ended up being the most memorable of all the hotels/motels we stayed at during our two week southwest vacation. Set in such a lovely location, all rooms of this hotel look over the river and red rocks across from... More

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We arrived very late the first night of our stay and they ensured we still had access to our room, (1am arrival). It is built into the side of a cliff wall and has great views of the San Juan River. Be sure to eat at the restaurant and pick a seat next... More

Great place to stay when visiting Monument Valley. Very clean and convenient to Monument Valley, Valley of Gods and Gooseneck State Park. Rooms are comfortable and hotel sits on scenic San Juan River. The price is so much more reasonable than those at Monument Valley that it is not even a question as to where to stay, I think.

Finding affordable hotels near Monument Valley is challenge. I settled on the San Juan Inn. I love the location, suspended below the bluffs and just over the San Juan river, and the old west ambiance. The location is also superb if you're taking in the magnificent sights of the southwest. The Bridge restaurant offers adequate dining and it very convenient... More

My husband and I spent one night at San Juan Inn and really enjoyed the experience. It lays on a Canyon right above the Colorado river and it's surrounded by a remote, quiet atmoshere...The room was big and had a beautiful view. We spent the night sitting at a table right above the river and were amazed by the full-moon... More

I was looking for a getaway with some great scenery. Believe me when I say what a beautiful place. The Inn was right there near everything, or should say centrally located. I was close to Monument valley and real close to Cedar mesa. This is the true definition of desert. The Inn is located right above the San Juan river... More

Do not waste your money. Room smelled very musty, couldn't sleep because of loud air conditioner, bathroom window would not close. It may be in the middle of the desert but there was no excuse for this place! We forfeited what we paid for the room and moved to the Desert Rose Inn in Bluff.
