After an average welcome we got our room. Room was spacious and very clean. We found all amenities in the room what we were looking for. Honestly even a bit over our expectations. We had a quiet and comfortable night.

Really good looking place, but: Poor choice of courses, no choice on sides. Poor serving with a compulsory 18% tip. Overpriced. Not so eager to split up tabs and credit card payment. If you're in the middle of nowhere and starving, go there to have a beer and buy some food at the 711 in front of it.

Little choice in Mexican Hat. Went based on reviews. Okay, most, near enough all, of seating is outside and only some covered so watch your weather. We went both nights we stayed in Mexican Hat and waiting staff was different on both nights but you wouldn't have noticed. First impressions are that it is a bit of a showpiece with... More

In our opinion a middle class lodging without breakfast offer. The public area is lovely furnished; the room itself are appropriate and I appreciated that they were using dispenser. Usually I would expect more for that price but it´s only a small lodge in a quite small village... Also due to the absence of alternatives, we´ve chosen the hotel restaurant... More

Mexican Hat Lodge has updated rooms, comfy beds, a/c and free wi-fi. Also the swinging grill for a steak dinner is highly recommended. Nice staff in hotel and restaurant. Best place to eat for literally miles around. A little pricy, but worth it.

The room was large in this motel, which appears to have been converted from apartments. Very convenient if you’re in the area for Muley Point, Goosenecks or Monument Valley. Also the Swinging Steak restaurant downstairs was great. The only negative was that the bedding and linens had this odd and really strong chemical/detergent smell. But it didn’t keep me from...

We stayed a couple of nights at Mexican Hat Lodge while touring Monument Valley. We had a very roomy cabin that was nicely furnished. The bar is outside. The only food served is a cowboy steak dinner. This consists of your choice of steak, beans and a salad. The steaks were surprisingly good -- tender, tasty and done to perfection... More

It's on USA price average, which is always expensive. May 2014 price weekdays $140. This was the best hotel re Quality price we found. I felt like a queen in that huge bed full of soft bedding and pillows. Bathroom was ok but not at the level of the room. Food was okay but I've tasted better steaks: Iron steak... More

I stayed in this motel on a 4-day road trip to Monument Valley and Natural Bridges National Monument. Nothing fancy about this place but you would not expect it for this small town on the San Juan river in no-where Utah. The room was decent with a nice hot shower. The free wifi was OK and a good flat screen... More

The perfect end to a day of driving. Room 5 has a separate bedroom that was ideal for our kids. Room is a 2nd floor end unit that matches to desert. Beds firm and clean. Quiet with a full house. Did not eat. Little food options, other than the Shell station open to 1 am. Worth the little extra for... More
