Colleagues wrinkled their noses when, as we entered the dining area, a couple of over zealous dogs broke loose (pets are welcome to stay here) and chased in through the doorless opening to the patio. We had been attracted by the exceptionally frugal prices on the menu and the obvious BEAUTY OF THE PLACE. The managers were exceptionally hospitable and... More

Located about 5 miles of Walsenburg's town center on 160, Rio Cucharas Inn is one of the best-kept secrets we've encounters. Rustic and charming, done in adobe style with Southwestern decor, the rooms are clean, charmingly appointed and equipped with micro and fridge. Service at the front desk is gracious and accommodating, and the view of the Spanish Peaks/Sangre de... More

I have stayed at tthis hotel off and on for 1 year. The rooms were always very clean. The staff very friendly. If I had a problem they fixed it as soon as I told them about it. Very quiet. with outstanding views of the Spanish Peaks. They keep up grading rooms and the breakfast was just right.

The only room available had black soot on the ceiling from the corner fireplace, which of course, we didn't need to light that night because it had to have been 95 degrees in there. The air conditioner would run only for a few minutes each hour. When we... More

It looks like someone had great dreams at one time - long ago. We have spent a week and a half staying at various hotels and motels and this was the worst. I wish we could have gotten our money back, but like others, the price got our attention in the first place. Still, this place made me uneasy. What... More

We stayed at the Best Western Rambler (also remodeled) and drove past on our way to The Great Sand Dunes National Park. It looked VERY appealing and nothing like the photos. We had decided just with our drive by that we would stay there on our next visit. Anyone stayed there recently? Are all rooms remodeled? Is it complete? These... More

These other reviews turned us off on this motel, however, we called another motel and because they were full, they recommended Rio Cucharas Inn as they said it had been remodeled and looked really nice. We decided to try it and were pleasantly surprised! The manager was very friendly, well dressed and accommodating to our needs! We asked to see... More
