We stayed for an evening traveling through. The room was very clean and the staff very friendly. We liked it also because it was pet friendly. We thought it was a bit overpriced for what we got for our money.

Was traveling with a family member and stayed here our last night in Pagosa, We got a cabin which was ok, very rustic. They are older but the bed was comfortable and the cabin was clean. We checked in early and they were accommodating, which was nice. The cabin is close to the river. The noise from Hwy 160 minimal...

I have found the service at this hotel to be excellent . Two years in a row, we arrived late, well after regular check-in hours. Both times they told us what room we were in and where we could locate the key. There is a nice light breakfast in the hospitality room. Overall the rooms were clean, but on this...

The good: - We arrived late, the check-in was fast - Good breakfast, above the usual sugary "American continental breakfast" The bad - The queen bed was uncomfortable, too soft and it seems it had too many sleepers (sagged toward the middle) - kids next door were pretty loud, seems the walls are pretty thin Summary: We will put our...

We stayed here on a tip from another motel that was full. The rooms were clean and neat. The front desk clerk was friendly and directed us to a great restaurant. Breakfast was included, it was the continental all carb variety.

Great room for the price. Cabins have stove, refrigerator, and basic cooking essentials. Dog friendly with a trail behind cabin to the San Juan River. Front desk very pleasant. We did not use the hot tub. Hospitality room for a very basic continental breakfast.

Its weird this is the third motel I've been in with no AC in the last couple of weeks.. At least theres a ceiling fan. I guess i need to ask in this part of the country. It cooled off fast and was fine otherwise. I got a room in the 21 22 23 series of rooms. A little musty...

We rented one of their cabins on July 18th, 2016. It did not have a/c. That was a bit of a headache because in order to keep cool, you need to have your windows open. You don't want to leave your room with the windows open for security reasons. They should put a/c in their cabins. The breakfast was not...

We went to a family event in Pagosa Springs, CO and had a reservation at the San Juan Motel. We got there and a polite but oddly dressed attendant checked us in. The first room had someone else's dirty clothes draped over the bathroom door. And the toilet seat had dried drops of urine on it. When I requested a...

We must apologize for the two dirty rooms you were checked into the evening of your stay with us. Apparently, a block of rooms that needed to be cleaned were missed by our housekeeping staff. We have resolved this issue and it will not happen again in the future . Again, we are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may...
