The San Juan is a clean and comfortable motel on the east side of Pagosa Springs with easy access to town and the hot springs. We stayed there twice in November and found it was just right for us. The rooms have what we'd call a "mini kitchen" with a sink, fridge and microwave. The only odd experience - we...

Stayed for 2 days while "blizzard" came thru. Pet Friendly. Motel and cabins. Only one King size room on property. Seemed odd. Along San Juan River. Furnishings well worn but functional. Bring your own pillows unless you like flat as a pancake!

This an excellent, locally owned and operated, motel. The people are genuinely kind and treat each visitor as they would treat a friend. The rooms were clean and homey with that log cabin feel. Beds were a bit hard for my liking, but not hard enough to cause problems. Very small shower, but being from Oklahoma, loved the great water...

I have always wanted to stay here. It is a mom and pop motel, and the rooms are small, but very nice. The bathroom had just been renovated, and the bed was very comfortable. I got the cheap rate - queen bed, table, TV in the room. It was very nice... The room I had did not have all the...

The motel room was very comfortable. The staff was helpful, providing a hair dryer upon request. The breakfast was simple but filling. We saw deer grazing on the back of the property. A nice strip shopping mall was across the street, and a farmers' market was at the far end of the motel property. The Pagosa Springs Museum is a...

What a dump. Mouse poop or bugs on the floor in the bathroom. The mattress was as hard as a rock. Thought about sleeping on the squishy carpet but was afraid something would bite me. I'd sleep in my car before I'd stay here again.

We stayed in room 52, only 1 neighbor, no connecting interior door. Quiet, clean, simple room. Great location, walked to everything in downtown area. Farmer's market right next door on Saturday morning. Got great pastries, and tamales to go. Did not sample their breakfast so cannot comment. I did call front desk about 10pm to ask neighbors sitting outside our...

Well, there are good points about this place. The location is very good, the property is beautiful and it is dog friendly. We stayed in cabin 7 - great that there was a fridge and stove - however, beds/pillows were unbearably uncomfortable and the A/C worked as well as it could but it got warm in there. My suggestions: bring...

We were to stay last Friday and when we went in the room and sat on the bed we sunk to the bottom of the mattress which I think was as old as the motel. I went to the front desk and asked for another room and they did not have one but was quick to offer a refund, which...
