Clean rooms. Recently remodeled. Friendly staff. No hassle for check out you can drop the key in the deposit box. Themed rooms. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. Rustic decor. Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot available. For the price this is a great place to stay.

Wonderful "mom & pop" motel! Each room has a different wildlife theme. I stayed in room #7, which is the bighorn sheep room. The manager/owner was very nice and helpful. Ate dinner at a restaurant (Nino's) that he recommended and wasn't disappointed. Had a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, sink, stove/oven, dishes/silverware/pots & pans. Please support these wonderful motels!

At a rate approximately 1/3 of the large chain hotels in the area, especially during the summer tourist season, you can't beat this little gem. Although it's located right in the middle of town near a main intersection, there was no traffic or other noise. The rooms are clean and the owners are friendly and accommodating. Several restaurants are within... More

What started out as a quick trip to Monte Vista on business turned into a surprisingly fun weekend, largely due to our decision to stay at the Rio Grande Motel and the chance to get to know motel manager, Carlos and his wife. We stayed in the Bighorn Room, which, as are all the othe rooms in this great little... More

...you find on the road that has the personal touch, ambiance (yes, I said ambiance) that turns a night stay into a memorable one. A B&B experience at a Motel price.
