Room itself was pretty decent except for an old tv. The bathroom was the worst disaster ever! The sink and shower were both missing heads. The shower had a bloodstain in it, and the toilet wouldn't flush. Because the toilet wouldn't flush, we requested for it to be fixed. 30 minutes later a 90 year old man comes in with... More

We were late in arriving in Cloudcroft, NM. The hotel in town was closed, but the innkeeper welcomed us to the Aspen Motel on the edge of town. Even though furnishings were a bit outdated, everything worked well and the room was very comfortable. This is a beautiful area, and a comfortable room at a reasonable price was a welcome... More

I had to stay in cloudcroft for some work. Needed an inexpensive motel. Found aspen on Internet and made reservations. Bad mistake! I don't expect much for cheap motels but this was terrible. One of the worst cheap motels I have ever stayed at. The beds were terrible--totally bowed in. It was filthy. The shower had long black hair stuck... More

The motel is very small and parking was a issue. The room was very outdated but for the location in this small mountain town it made sense. The man at the front desk was really nice. He was not in the office very often but they had a phone number on the door that you could call and he would... More

There appears to be no sense of pride here. We would agree with previous comments on the towels being old and thin. Worse, however, was the fact that the shower drain was clogged and there was mold nestled amongst the old tile. We reported the clogged drain the following morning. After being gone all day hiking, we returned to a... More

The Aspen is a nice clean motel nestled in the charming village of Cloudcroft, NM. The folks are friendly, the room adequate (clean, comfy bed, good location) and a restaurant on site that prepares good meals. Complimentary breakfast included in the reasonable priced room. There is laundry available too. My room was quiet until the neighbours got up to leave... More

The hotel is quaint and well kept. It is an older property but it is very clean. The Cross-Eyed Moose Cafe is right in front of the motel and the food is delish! There is free wi-fi in the rooms and in the cafe. This was perfect because I could work as my husband and sons were hunting.

Stayed there 4 nights in October 2011, very friendly owners, nice clean room. The included breakfast was great. The crosseyed moose cafe was staffed by very attentive waitresses and waiters, I suggest that you eat at the cafe even if you don't stay at the motel but I would highly recommend both.

We were lucky to get the last room at this popular little motel. The front desk was staffed by the grandson of the owners and he was very helpful and pleasant. The room was clean and spacious and the chairs on the front deck faced the tall evergreens across the road, a nice view. The motel has a large, new... More
