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. Tom (the owner) is a rare gem himself. Outdoorsman and handyman...always a smile on his face... gracious old-school southerner ...and you ought to see the decor of his rooms...outdoor... More

Often I am afraid to stay in little hotels that are in small towns and locally owned, you never know what you are getting into. This was a great small hotel in Monte Vista that was resonably priced and very clean. It is a great place if you are into hunting, fishing etc. They have themed rooms for hunters. It... More

We stayed in May and I am just now getting around to writing this. We got two rooms, one night. The rooms were cute. Ours had horses. The rooms were clean and the mattresses were comfortable. Our bathroom looked recently redone. The customer service was very good. My son's room didn't have a phone, and they brought one promptly. I... More
