Spent one night at the San Juan Inn. The air conditioner stopped working sometime during the night. When we woke up at 5 a.m., it was too hot in the room to take a shower - it wouldn't have done any good. Don't misunderstand - we're from the South where heat indexes have lately been in the 100s with 75%... More

We stayed here after a grueling eight-hour drive and prior to a wonderful seven-day river trip. It was absolutely perfect and really the quintessential place to stay in tiny Mexican Hat. The rooms were fine, but the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The food in the motel restaurant hit the spot and this made for a perfect family stay... More

When you take into account the remote location, this is a very acceptable place to stay. It ain't The Ritz, but you shouldn't expect that in this part of Southern Utah. On the upside, they do have a licenced restaurant and sitting sipping a cold one watching the San Juan River drift by makes a very pleasant pastime. You certainly... More

We spent two nights at San Juan Inn in Mexican Hat. We used it as our base for exploring Monument Valley which is 20 miles south of MH. The accommodation in Monument Valley is expensive and limited to the two hotels namely the View and the Gouldings. We got a spacious room with a king bed . More importantly the... More

Recently three generations of our family decided to visit Valley of the Gods in Utah. Some family members have physical limitations so a driving tour is appropriate. The San Juan Inn Motel was perfect for those with limitations as they could drive to the room and enter with only one step. The rooms were very clean and tidy, this facility... More

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
