Thought it was just an affordable local motel. Instead it was a completely custom mountain resort room. Spotless, new and amazingly decorated. We stayed in the elk room. The furniture was something you might see in a high end mountain antique store. Everything was themed. Like a motel six converted to a Hilton. The owner took real pride in his... More

Awesome...we enjoyed our over night stay in the Elk Room! Clean room that felt just felt like home. Tom, the owner, was friendly and informative about the area. My husband shared the love of hunting with him ...so we could have visited much longer just listening to his hunting adventures. Definitely one of our favorite places to stay!

We found this place on hotels.com and thought it looked like a really cool place. Well, so glad we stayed there! It was wonderful! The rooms are themed different animals,we had the Elk room. Incredible room. The owner is such a nice guy too. If we ever go back we'll be staying there again.

Wife and I spent the night passing through. Staff was friendly, accommodating and helpful. Would stay again certainly. Owner was extremely friendly and couldn't have done more for us. Rooms are small, but great for a quiet nights rest for a couple.

One of the best we have ever stayed at! The owner, Tom, is great! The rooms are beautifully decorated. I would highly recommend staying here if in monte vista! Tom is very knowledgeable about the area and is so accomodating. They have rooms for all needs, one night or a month, single person to a big family!

This is an interesting motel and the the owner is a very friendly guy. I was feeling fairly positive about my experience until I threw back the covers for a good nights sleep. The bed was in my estimation less than optimal and I in my estimation past the time for replacement The mattress springs were easily felt on what... More

I called late (around 10:30 pm) on a snowy May night and told the desk clerk that I was an hour out. He said the desk closed at 11, but volunteered to stay up until I got there. Very friendly when I arrived. Rooms all have hunting and fishing motif. Basic, clean, comfortable. Don Thomas Bakery (around the corner) is... More

That is what my wife said upon entering our room at the Rio Grand Motel. But, we didn't even get to the room for about an hour after arrival, because the owner is a very friendly person, and we hit it right off. We exchanged stories, and he told us a lot of interesting things about the area. He is... More

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.
