Was sort of skeptical when I made reservations for one night, but not much else to choose from in Mexican Hat. Opened the door of the room and literally said "Wow"! The rooms had obviously been remodeled and were so cute, colorful and large. Beautiful furnishings and very clean. King size bed was sooooo comfortable. Had dinner at the steak... More

I go back for the beautiful sunset and sunrise. Quite the view from the bar at Swinging steak. The concept of the swinging steak is cool but I don't recommend the food for the price they want.$23-30 USD. A little effort with fresh salads or a baked potato to go with the steak would be awesome but you get beans... More

We were travelling with a family, so we needed space and we got it. Big room with huge, comfortable beds. Friendly receptionist. Small pool, but perfect given the baking heat. Everything decorated in an individual, creative way. Free adaptors at the reception, left behind by other guests. Handy if you have Europe phone with you. Enjoyed the steakhouse as well.... More

This place had charm! Sure, it is a basic motel, but they have done a very nice job making it a bit more. The property is cute, with a western feel. They have cheerful outdoor landscaping with personal touches like busy hummingbird feeders. The 360 view around the property is spectacular - rock formations everywhere you look. The room was...

This is a bigger than average lodge type property, two story, older property, in the middle of nowhere, across the street from a gas station, in Mexican Hat. The 'town' is a blink long- blink and you are through it- but it is lots cheaper than staying in Monument Valley and way cooler- really close to the river which is... More

We stayed two nights in room 6 and everything was perfect. The room was clean, big, and we even used the pool they have. I fell in love with the swinging steaks! The atmosphere in the night was very good, a wonderful smell of cedar wood from the barbecue, music...

Stayed in room 5 and was very happy. Clean room, two queen size beds, updated carpet, and fan in the spare bedroom to help the A/C. A goodnights sleep and a friendly good morning to get us on our way again. Didn't eat at he restaurant but the front desk s made sure they stayed open until we got there... More

We were visiting Monument Valley and choose to stay at one of the cabins here. It was a little bit further to travel but it was worth it. The cabin was clean and we enjoyed the spacious feeling of being able to also have a kitchen and lounge room.

There's not very much in Mexican Hat other than a couple of motels, a gas station and a couple of restaurants. The Mexican Hat lodge is a fun place. For a start it's famous as a place John Wayne frequented after filming at nearby Monument Valley. It has an indoor, heated, swimming pool and there is a bar and lounge.... More

Wanted it to be more fun that it was - - I was so looking forward to dinners on the Swingin Steak patio, and the food was great but the atmosphere was just flat. Maybe because it was a Tuesday night. That was just my little disapointment because I had expected it to be more, well, "swingin". The only music... More
