In a word, "Exceptional!". I've been visiting Chama for over thirty years and have stayed in a number of motels there. Last year we had an unpleasant experience at our previous motel of choice in Chama. This year we tried Vista Del Rio for the first time because of positive Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! From check-in to... More

My husband and I drove from our home in Pennsylvania to Chama, NM this summer to spend time at the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. After so many nights in various hotels across the country, we were grateful to finally get a good night's sleep at the Vista Del Rio Lodge. The beds were tremendously comfortable and even though it... More

I recently spent two nights at the Vista Del Rio Lodge while taking the Toltec & Cumbres Railroad from Chama, NM to Antonito CO. I could not have asked for a better experience, from the moment of my check in to my check out everything was outstanding. As I had a reservation check in was quick and efficient. The desk... More

Overnight stop. Room was exceptionally clean, and bed was comfortable. Opened window to allow room to cool down. No AC. Rooms on the back side of building are quieter and have a better view. Took a 15 minute walk to a High Country Restaurant. Saw a deer strolling the property. Very comfortable stay in a nice location.

My husband and I were at the Vista del Rio Lodge in Chama, NM this week to spend our 19th wedding anniversary while on the road. I had already reviewed this lodge a couple of years ago, as we have been staying there since 1999, and never been disappointed. This visit was different, however. I happened to mention that we...

Hi CT: We are so sorry that issues during your recent stay. We would have preferred that you let us address these issues during your stay. We have had unseasonably warm weather, and have certainly allowed guests who were not comfortable with no AC to check out with no penalty. The evaporative coolers we use are portable, and we certainly... More

What a wonderful, hospitable staff welcomed our son's memorial project this weekend! Kim and Alwina and staff made sure that our volunteers were well taken care of as we reserved the entire hotel. We set up headquarters in the lovely backside of the hotel facing the Chama River. The rooms were clean, beds were comfty and the location was perfect!... More

Room was spotless. Staff/owner was great. Handicapped room is huge. Loved staying on the back side away from the highway and had a nice view of creek, geese, etc. Had the motel mostly to ourselves. No breakfast available. Had a little trouble getting the TV to work but the staff came down and got it going.
