If you are here for a stop during your trip, this is a good stay for a night. It is clean and the price is ok. Small pool but a pool at least ;). The restaurant is not so good. Ok for the swinging steack, it is a curius way to cook and the meal is good. But 40$ for... More

Poor noise insulation. We could hear other walking along the veranda as they passed our rooms. Restaurant (BBQ) is ok, but VERY limited choice of food or drink. There was a very limited choice in the area, I would serious consider the few extra miles and perhaps choosing something more midmarket in Kayenta for probably similar money.

This was one of the most affordable places we found find while traveling to Monument Valley. It was still overpriced for what it was, but the room was clean and nicer than I expected. The room had a nice flat screen TV and basic cable, as well as a microwave, fridge, and free wi-fi, which was also surprising. My husband... More

We ate at the Swingin Steak when we stayed in Mexican Hat and it was easily one of the best meals of our 2 week holiday. If you don't eat meat or more specifically don't like steak then this certainly isn't the place for you. The menu essentially consists of different sizes of steak served with the same side dishes....

This was the only place open when we came through one march evening. Seating is only outside, so I was a little reluctant, but it was totally worth it, and was kind of nice being outside at night in the late winter. We split three plates among four people and we were all full. I think the only thing on... More

I am not into the rustic lifestyle but it was not as bad as I thought. My wife and I stayed in a trailer because of the bed size. It was actually comfortable and I had a good night sleep. My son was in the motel part and had a good stay. The room was clean and we were on... More

We are a couple with baby, had room #10 and full access to the swimming pool just for ourselves. We loved the setting of the swimming pool area. We really like the John Ford atmosphere too. The room was clean and had a nice guest house deco which made a nice change from all the chain hotel places we stayed... More

A stone's throw from monument valley, the room is spacious, comfortable and beautiful colorful! The only flaw, the curtains not cover the windows very well, the light filters in the morning. Even outdoor is nice, with jacuzzi. The owner is amiable in the evening and silent at the morning :D pity not have tasted the veggie burger, we arrived too... More

The place has character, and that is what I was looking for. Not a whole lot of places to choose from in the area and was a bit overpriced, but the room was large and clean. The restaurant really had character & was a friendly place. Food overpriced, but very good.

We loved staying at Mexican hat Lodge as it was not impersonnal like some other motels. Nice clean and big room. We were 2 couples and shared the 2 bdr suite which worked out cheap. The bbq meal was excellent. It is endeed expensive at about $40 the big portion of beef but again, you have the possibility to order... More
