Booked this hotel for two nights and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was for the price. Clean rooms, comfy beds and a great view! Kids loved the pool and I loved it was open 24 hours so we could burn energy off late at night after a long drive. Right off the freeway and very convenient. Awesome staff! I had to check in "late" and I mean midnight late and they were ready so we didn't have to wait very long at all. Will be back for sure!

This is a nice roadside motel, but the service was really bad. If you have to stay here, insist on a room facing the river, or bring ear plugs for the trucks rolling past your room all night. This place is not worth what they’re charging.

My husband and I stayed at Hat Rock Inn on a Thursday in May. The hotel was expensive for what we got but we did not have many choices in Mexican Hat, UT. We paid $171.98 for a king bed (room) that would have cost about half that in a more populated area. We spent half a day in Monument Valley then we were planning to spend a couple hours soaking in their heated pool overlooking the San Juan River. When we arrived at the hotel, the pool was very very cold. I ask if I could cancel the reservation then move on. I was told that they would keep my deposit of $17.20. The pretty and heated pool was my reason for making a reservation Hat Rock Inn. I was so disappointed. We drove to Gooseneck State Park for a short visit then spent the rest of the afternoon watching TV in the room. The king bed was average comfort. The hotel offered no breakfast. The towels were tannish instead of white. When I turned on the water in the bath tub, the water was brown for a few minutes. The carpet needs cleaning. My white socks turned brown after walking on the floor. We had a room in the front of the hotel and we heard some trucks passing on the highway during the night. The rooms on the back had a much better view. Hat Rock Inn is the nicest hotel in Mexican Hat and there are only 3 restaurants. I would never stay here again. I should have gave up my deposit and moved on. I suggest skipping Mexican Hat, UT completely.

First of all, trust me this is a really nice place to stay in Mexican Hat! I say this because it is not much to look at as you drive up (my wife was giving me that look!). Skeptical as we were, the room was clean and the beds were terrific (quite firm, which I prefer). Actually, the view from the backside of the Inn overlooks the river and is very pleasant for stargazing at night. We stayed here for a visit to Monument Valley, which was quite close and convenient (much quieter and less chaotic then staying at Monument Valley). The desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for one night as a stopover on the way to Bryce NP from Moab. At first, it appeared to be somewhat rundown looking and we were prepared to be disappointed. We were totally wrong. It is old, but very clean and up to date. We had a nice room in the back with great views and a sitting area overlooking the river. Nice pool area. The room rate was also reasonable. If you are visiting Monument Valley, this would be an excellent choice for a motel.

So beautiful, the view from the second floor is amazing. Room was clean, the water pressure is fantastic.The pool area looked great but didn't have time to use it. You can walk down to the river. Would stay again!

My husband and I stayed here on a visit to Monument Valley. Our room was attractive, nicely decorated and very clean. The bedding and pillows were especially comfortable. We had a casual dinner as well as breakfast in the adjacent small restaurant and enjoyed our meals. We recommend this hotel for a stopover when you’re in the area.

Hat Rock Inn is a surprise in the little town of Mexican Hat. We were on a 6 week road trip and this was a 3 night stopover. There is not a lot of choice of places to stay in Mexican Hat but I think we picked the right place. The rooms are pretty typical. My number one criteria was met -It was clean! Rooms are not large but there is a little table with 2 chairs. There is no elevator so you have to haul your luggage upstairs. The big surprise is the pool!! Check it out. The photos on-line are true to what you get. Just a great spot. Looks like a Vegas hotel with an outstanding view. There is a little cafe next door which had great breakfast burritos. Best I ever had.

The Hat Rock Inn is situated in a very, very, small town, in the canyon lands, but the room was well appointed, the staff was great, and what a gorgeous pool. Make sure to sit out for the sunset and stay to look at the Milky Way.

The room was exceptional. Very clean. The bathroom was spotless!! There is a river flowing behind the inn with picnic tables and solar ground lights in the evening. There is a path for mild hiking too. Just a perfect place to get in touch with yourself.
