    Default Staying near Monument Valley

    I'm booking my hotels for my trip to Utah in April 29-May 2 and am looking for a good spot to stay near Monument Valley. Gonna be driving in from Arches late in the afternoon (Tour monument the following day). I stayed at Gouldings Lodge last year, but it is completely booked for that weekend. Would I be better off staying in Monticello, Blanding, or Mexican Hat? Know of a nice, clean, safe hotel in these towns?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    Default Blanding is probably the best bet

    Brett, I can't remember what the motels are like -- but Blanding has a good selection here is a link to most of them. I also checked out Monticello and Mexican Hat (we didn't have any listings for Mexican Hat) using our booking engine.

    Default I've stayed in Mexican Hat

    We stayed in Mexican Hat at a place called the San Juan Inn in Sept. 2004. It's a decent place, very reasonable prices. The room was nothing special, but clean and comfortable enough for me. You can see their website at http://www.sanjuaninn.net/index.asp.

    It's right along the river and it has a restaurant too. We ate dinner and breakfast there and I think it was pretty good. We were also able to do laundry there.

    I don't know that it's the best choice, but we were satisfied.

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for the tip..looks like I'm gonna stay in Blanding. That way I'm not driving too far from Canyonlands Needles District at the end of the day and I'm only an hour and change to Monument Valley in the mornin.

    Thanks,
    Brett

    Default Mexican Hat

    Myself and 2 buddies stopped by the Mexican Hat Lodge, we had a couple drinks, a GREAT time, and I got to play some bass with the owners of the bar. I suggest you make a stop in there, really nice place...

    Great field report -- what is "play some bass" -- oh wait a moment -- is this a musical instrument? I thought it might have been a fish or card game or something like that...
