After staying in many motels across the western United States this summer the Rio Cucaras Inn was a refreshing change to the standardized conformity of motels we are used to seeing. The staff was corky but very friendly and helpful. Everything had an authentic unintentional vintage and retro feel. The room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was clean with... More

Do NOT Do NOT Here Here It Is Very Sketchy. First of all it gave me and my family a weird feeling when we walked into to the room we had rented and that usually doesn't happen to us a lot. When you go to lock the door it doesn't lock from the inside it locks automatically which I thought... More

Stayed there for work and was not impressed.... Rooms were not clean properly, with dirty floors no towels or soap. The poor quality breakfast did not feature much, and dogs roaming around all over wasn't nice either. This hotel is a little run down and needs some major repairs. Most of the room have a 20 in tube tv that... More

We were greeted by a Man with shirt unbuttoned and previous night's makeup (red lipstick, eye shadow and mascara), yes I said a man. To each their own, however the... More

Friendly, welcoming manager. Room doors open to outdoors to gorgeous view of Spanish Peaks. Night stand on each side of bed. The best continental breakfast I've ever seen, including fresh sweet cherries, perfect bananas, oranges, English muffins and choices of breads for toast, cereals, hard-boiled eggs.

My family and I stayed here for 4 days, and i have to say it was a bit nicer than i thought it would be. Loved the Spanish style, large beams, wood ceiling, fireplace, thick adobe walls to keep out the noise of the traffic. We enjoyed the huge pool they had even though it was a bit cold and... More

I needed a place to stop after a long drive from Phoenix on my way to Denver. Place was better than most roadside motels at a cheaper price as well. Staff was very accommodating as well!! Slept like a baby

This was my first stay at the motel, but it won't be my last. The motel is older but very clean and the management was friendly and welcoming. The next morning, the guys had an emergency so their friend was covering the motel for them. She was great. I told her we were in the area to check out my... More

This was our second time staying at the Rio Cucharas Inn. We enjoyed our stay, but noticed that it needs some up keep since our last stay. The toilet wasn't bolted to the floor, the steps to the upstairs rooms were starting to rot out, and they needed swept the whole time that we were there, (6 days). We had... More
