This is our second time staying here. We stayed here 12 years ago. Monument Valley is about 20 miles away. The Mexican Hat Inn is quiet, comfortable and affordable. The rooms have been updated since our last stay, but it is still an old place that has been nicely maintained. My only complaint was that there aren't enough wall plugs...

Although this looked like a perfectly nice steak place the ambiance was quickly destroyed by the lazy presentation. The steak which looked great, is served on a platter side by side with a soup of Italian dressed salad and sloppy beans. Everything was soon a mess and it felt like you were eating out of a trough. Would a salad...

The reviews were all true. What a great place. Bob, chef, host, bouncer, etc made our stay. I felt like I was with family. Great steak with pi to beans and salad. Menu is small and simple choice between 5 types of steaks serve on sizzling metal plate with beans and salad. Never laughed so hard as when a couple...

I'm at the epicenter of my trip into the wilderness, and I've accomplished (so far) what I came to do. And I planned on staying at the Mexican Hat Lodge because not only was it close to the places I wanted to visit, it looked cool. I reserved one of the small rooms ('cuz I don't need/want a big room),...

We stayed at the lodge 5 days while sightseeing in the surrounding areas. Our "room" was actually a park model mobile home- a trailer- completely separate from the main lodge building. One bedroom with a queen bed, full bath with shower over tub, kitchen and living room with TV and Wi-Fi. In the evening the normally satisfactory Wi-Fi slowed to...

Stayed here before visiting Monument Valley. Dark when we arrived, check in girl was very friendly. Not much to choose from in this small town but we chose here because they had a pool. After a day of traveling it was nice to take a swim in the heated pool, it felt great and lights were dimmed or off which...

We shared a room with our friends. They had the living room since the AC would be closer to them. We had the bedroom by the bathroom. The place does need some serious updating, but it did seem clean and that is very important. A family would be better for the room we rented. The AC doesn't work that well,...

Husband & I stayed next door at Hard Hat Inn but had dinner at Swingin Steak after a long beautiful drive throughout Utah's geological phenomena. This is a 'no frills' bar restaurant but plenty of character with a Navaho cook and bartender as your quiet, but gracious hosts. Meals are very simple, most or all with pinto beans and salad...

Stayed at The Mexican Hat Lodge this past August. The room that we reserved was quite clean and quiet. Would stay at the same motel and the two bedroom unit. Mexican Hat is a very small town and would suggest you eat at their restaurant.

We stayed at the Lodge on a cold and wet night, with blowing wind and rain. Mexican Hat is on the edge of nowhere in the desert. The hotel is across from a 7-11 that has gasoline. The lobby was empty when we arrived. You ring a bell to get service. Check-in was uneventful. We stayed in room 3; queen...
