Right Near the Good Ol' San Juan!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 3, 2014

When you figure motels, you figure something seedy in an undesirable location. Not so with San Juan Inn, located in the enclave of Mexican Hat, Utah. The motel was nice and clean. The lobby also doubles as a gift shop. The room offers the standard king and queen size accommodations, as well as rooms with 3 beds. The beds were firm and comfy and the layout of the room was spacious. There is a gym and a laundry here, but we used neither of these. There's also a restaurant adjoning the inn and quesitonable wi-fi. I give my stay a 4 out of 5. I was with good friends, a clean motel room to crash in, and I got to tick off getting drunk near the San Juan River off my bucket list! (although the last one wasn't planned haha) The food was decent as well.

Unique Quality: What makes this place is the scenery! The motel is perched right above the San Juan river, which is a green hue of wonder. The other side of the motel is next to some cliffs and this gives is an eerie but romantic feel. There is an area where you can descend and relax near the riverfront, with BBQ pits and tables. The restaurant and bar had some friendly staff and a place where you can write and leave your mark. I learned that the restaurant had a visit from Michael J. Fox, who also won a drinking contest against the natives one night at the bar! Wow, who would've thought??

Directions: You can't miss it, it's the last motel near the overpass that leads to Monument Valley!
