Don't let the exterior fool you! The rooms appear to be recently renovated, are spacious and very clean. The pool and spa are gorgeous - like a personal oasis! The pool deck makes a wonderful spot for stargazing! There is even an area to sit and watch the San Juan River. I wish we had time to stay long longer!

Refurbished rooms, confortable big beds, , On the side to San Juan river, Good swiming pool, You can use use it in the night after visiting the fantastic MONUMENT VALLEY. close to this hotel, Very nice parrillas with good meat and cold beer. Do not mix the Mexican hat rock that gives the name to the litle place.

Nice reception area, nice rooms with fridge, microwave, keurig coffee machine (with capsules) tv, and all toiletries dispenser and hairdryer. Comfortable beds. I would definitely recommend that hotel while visiting monument valley! Oh I forgot the swimming pool and a nice view over the river!!

While booking hotels for my road trip, I was most hesitant about this hotel. Rooms in Monument Valley were way too expensive, and the motel across the street looked like a set for a horror movie. I was not happy with the cost of this hotel, but booked anyway. When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. The person working check-in... More

Although I cringe to know a spider was in your room I thank you for understanding! We are hesitant to over use pesticides, therefore, along with a licensed pest control company we also use diatomaceous earth and a broom! I will have maintenance go in search of the large (non-poisonous) 'lake spiders' that have decided Mexican Hat is a friendly... More

After a very long drive we were surprised at how nice this inn was. Very few choices in Mexican hat, we didn't expect a lot. Clean room, cute folded towels and friendly staff. Had a small issue with our sheets and they came very quickly to replace them, we ended up very satisfied. The view from the rooms in the... More

Although limited for places to stay in the tiny town of Mexican Hat, Hat Rock Inn was a great place to stay, with our room at the back(top floor) having great views overlooking the San Juan river.The Motel may not be attractive looking from the outside but don't let that fool you as we found it to be very clean...

Thank you for the kind words! It's always a challenge to decide what to spend on...the curb appeal or what the guests actually touch? We chose the latter with hopes of building 'out'! We have such a limited workforce here that opening the cafe has not been possible without a lot of thought. We WILL be opening soon as we've... More

Mexican Hat is a small town of 31 according to Wikipedia. That being said you shouldn't expect much. This motel has standard rooms you would find at any sub $100 motel. What sets it apart from all the other is how clean it is, location, the view, and the pool. All the linens are pure white, they want you to... More

I was here 2 years ago, so I knew what to expect. When we first pulled in, my girlfriend said "you got to be kiddin' me". Place looks dilapidated form the outside. Definitely overpriced, but it's the best game in town and isn't bad, especially when you take into account the beautiful, exceptional pool area, which appears really out of... More

Definitely a mixed bag! I think that perfectly defines Mexican Hat! (We have to have a sense of humor living here). The construction on the deck is a project we got pulled off of due to other 'emergencies', it's on our priority list that changes with whatever comes up, like lightening strikes that take out equipment, electrical brownouts that do...

I booked this hotel based on Expedia photos of the pool, and wow, it did not disappoint! This is probably the best property in terms of value for money spent I have stayed in in all the southwest. Mexican Hat is a wonderful little hamlet that has everything you need without tourist traps or crowds. You can completely get away... More

This is quite a nice place to stay overnight, and the room quality is good. It is quiet there, the AC is working well and not too loud, and the ambiente of the Motel is to my liking. They are professionally operated, and that shows in efficiency
