Its weird this is the third motel I've been in with no AC in the last couple of weeks.. At least theres a ceiling fan. I guess i need to ask in this part of the country. It cooled off fast and was fine otherwise. I got a room in the 21 22 23 series of rooms. A little musty... More

We rented one of their cabins on July 18th, 2016. It did not have a/c. That was a bit of a headache because in order to keep cool, you need to have your windows open. You don't want to leave your room with the windows open for security reasons. They should put a/c in their cabins. The breakfast was not... More

We went to a family event in Pagosa Springs, CO and had a reservation at the San Juan Motel. We got there and a polite but oddly dressed attendant checked us in. The first room had someone else's dirty clothes draped over the bathroom door. And the toilet seat had dried drops of urine on it. When I requested a... More

We must apologize for the two dirty rooms you were checked into the evening of your stay with us. Apparently, a block of rooms that needed to be cleaned were missed by our housekeeping staff. We have resolved this issue and it will not happen again in the future . Again, we are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may... More

The room was very small though clean. No AC in our room. The breakfast didn't open until 7, so not really usable if you were off for an adventure early, which we were. We were in the ones closest to the road and the trucks didn't stop during the night. Bed was comfortable, but with the noise and heat, not... More

San Juan Motel is a great place to stay for location. It is an old motel, but has been updated. Our room was at the back. It had gravel in the parking lot at that location. We were there for 4 nights and it rained about every day making it muddy outside. Our room #51 was in the corner which... More

Wonderful place to stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable and they are very dog friendly. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to again soon. Reasonably priced and a mountain backs the property so deer are common.

My dog and I arrived at the San Juan Motel this past Friday afternoon. We had reserved cabin #7 for $115+pet fee+taxes. The motel kindly allowed us to check in several hours early and we headed to our cabin. We pulled our car to the cabin and there were hotel workers blocking where we could park. Overall, the parking was... More

We are so, so, sorry to hear how disenchanted you are regarding your stay with us over Memorial Day Weekend. I read your review and immediately addressed your complaints with our front desk staff. Strange that the "unapproachable, rude and frequently not present" front desk man stated that you never came to the lobby to complain about anything! (?) Also,... More

We stayed one night with our dog in a cabin. Good outdoor access, it was easy to walk her in the adjoining pasture area. It was clean and had all the necessities. Not too many extras, but we'd consider staying here again with pets. No shampoo, conditioner or lotion. Beautiful area! Oh, and a great wifi connection!
