The Hat Rock Inn is walking distance just down the road from The Mexican Hat Lodge. I have stayed in both places. Both are good. The Hat Rock Inn is more expensive, but quieter when there is music on at the other place. Be sure and walk down the roadfor a swingin' steak at the MHL. It's a treat. I...

My wife had some misgivings at my choice of reservations when we pulled up. Clean but older outside and a river rock drive and parking, but when she opened the door to the newly remodeled room she was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are a fair size and clean, with new Kureig single cup makers. Very friendly and helpful staff. No...

Greeted by very nice helpful people in reception. Good clean establishment we would stay here again. Unfortunately we only stayed two nights and arrived in darkness each night so didn't see the area around the hotel.

Qualifier: I love obscure, out of the way little places. If you're looking for "rock" solid accommodations at a reasonable price, perched above crazy views of the San Juan River, cool pool area, close to two or three cool dinner + breakfast spots, in the middle of "no-where" but close to the most amazing places in the US, than just...

Great salt water pool with a hot tub connected which has excellent views of the red rock cliffs and the river below. Rooms are ok, but the location 15 miles from Monument Valley is the best around other than The View Hotels whose rares are much much higher.

Thank you for your review! So glad you were able to enjoy the pool and the ambiance it provides...I love it, too! I also feel that the drive to Monument Valley is one of the most scenic routes...it beckons.

Great to get away from the big chain hotels. Comfortable rooms, good bed and a beautiful spot for sundowner drinks overlooking the San Juan river. Owners are still in the process of renovation but it is well worth staying.

This is a nice motel that is just getting better. Great location on a bluff overlooking the San Juan river. The newly remodeled pool area is perfect for a fun evening.The rooms are recently remodled and some construction is still underway. Within easy walking distance of the Swinging Steak restaurant.

We're so pleased that you were able to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the pool area...when we were designing it we nearly put in a grotto and waterfalls...then we realized that the serenity should always be available and the 'fun' can be added at the guests leisure! We try very hard to finish construction, upgrades and improvements in our off...

Stayed here in April 2017. Got a room in the back near the pool. The rooms were clean and well-appointed and surprisingly comfortable. The pool area is pretty great, especially for families. The owners have taken the time to add the small details like pool towels and comfortable pool furniture that make a difference. So why just three stars? Well,...

Thank you for the kind words! We're very happy that you enjoyed our property. We love our public lands and, having been in this business for many years prior to this designation, also feel compelled to help prevent the 'commercialization' of these most beautiful places knowing that most of our guests return time and again to escape the more tourist...

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...
