After a long hot day of exploring and looking at rocks this was a pleasant surprise on the San Juan river. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub and our room had a great view of the river. It was very quiet and relaxing and room was very nice and comfortable.

This place is really cool! Views are awesome, pool and hot tub are as good as a top resort, pool area relaxing and inviting. Right along the San Juan River, the Hat Rock has modern rooms, very comfortable beds and is very clean. We were surprised to find this having stayed elsewhere in the area a few times before. This...

Our room was very clean and nicely updated (especially the bathroom). The location is great, both in terms of its gorgeous setting along the San Juan River and its convenience to really interesting sites (Goosenecks State Park, Valley of the Gods, Monument Valley, etc.). We stayed three nights and had no problems or issues.

So glad you enjoyed our newest updates, the kind words mean a lot to us. Mexican Hat...just a tiny village surrounded by amazing scenery. I've lived here for 38 years and am still blown away daily at the beauty!

Stayed on the second floor with a view of the river canyon. Room was comfortable. Internet was poor but good for email etc. Not good for streaming. Check in was fast and friendly. No restaurant on site but there are a couple in town. Location dictates the price.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, alas, the internet is something we can't keep up with out here! We have limited options and all are very expensive...we pay $1495.00 per month for it and are not so happy either, therefore, we do ask that 'streaming' not be utilized as it slows the net down for everyone. If another, better, alternative...

This hotel is conveniently located at less than thirty miles if you plan on seeing Monument Valley for sunrise or sunset, and seems to be the best choice for the money in this small town. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and the overall premises are well kept. The hotel has a great pool, and a picnic area...

Thank you for the kind review...yes, those stars at night are just what the soul needs for 'perspective'? I think you said it well, "Exhilarating and intimidating - in a good way"! So very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Hotel is very clean and service was superb. Location is very convenient to the area's other geologic phenomena, some of which is right in the motel's backyard. Enjoy the red cliffs of the beautiful San Juan river bank from their pool and spa. Enjoy your own barbecue at the fire pit down by the river. Night sky is a blessing...

We stayed here due to the close proximity to Monument Valley. The choices are somewhat limited so we were very pleasantly surprised at how tidy and comfortable this little hotel is. It overlooks the San Juan River and has a wonderful pool and hot tub that also overlooks the river. Dining is also limited, but the Swinging Steak restaurant is...

After visiting Monument Valley, I expected the motel I'd booked in a town called Mexican Hat to be tiny and somewhat shabby. I could NOT have been more wrong! For one night, I was in paradise! Pulling up to the motel, I was slightly worried by its appearance! However, our room was large with beautiful pictures and décor. The beds...

I'm always so very happy when someone gets to experience 'dark skies' for the first time! There's nothing quite like it. Thank you for all your kind words, we forever hope to touch the senses of those who appreciate the struggle and who embrace the dusty harsh environment while enjoying the simple silence.

Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The view from behind the hotel is beautiful with the Canyon and San Juan River behind. Ate at Swinging Steak. Was fun and good. Expensive though. And the cleaning staff found $200 and called us to return it to us. That was awesome!

We stayed 1 night in late September and our stay was fine but expensive at $186 a night inclusive of tax. I know the area is remote, and the tourist season isn't all year long, but $186 is a lot for a standard room. I thought from the price that the hotel was fully booked but there were a lot...
