Your hunting or ATV buddies might be happy here. Your fussy spouse, probably not. I paid $55/night. They make an honest effort to provide a decent night's stay. Fridge & shower worked fine. Mattress was very mushy/soft. The old-school pine walls are kind of cool. WiFi worked very well. Flies kept getting into my room, from a hole somewhere, I... More

This motel is a great spot for a base camp for central NM. Rooms and bedding are clean and there is plenty to do in the area. Amenities are a bit sparse but with so much to do and see in the surrounding area (VLA, old mines, & ghost towns) didn't have time to lounge around in the room. Owners... More

Clean, knotty pine paneled room with old furnishings, cable TV, fridge, microwave. small shower stall. WiFi. Nice courtyard with table and chairs. Walking distance to Magdalena Café, (best restaurant), or M and M café in Magdalena Hotel, (fresh but not fast). Demaris, the proprietress is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. If you are spending the night in Magdalena, especially if you... More

This is as authentic as it gets! Just what I expected to find in the sleepy little town of Magdelena.. Clean, cozy, & great owners! The price was great. 2 QUEEN beds non-smoking with a great view of the mts. The chickens went to bed at 9pm & the rooster was up at 5am. When traveling out West, this is... More

The owners are friendly and knowledgeable. We spent the first night at the other motel, decided to give this one a try. That was the best choice we have made during this hunting trip. Rooms are much more larger, cleaner, with a warm setting. I recommend this to anyone passing through Magdalena.

I stayed here because I was on a hunting trip with my dog and another hunter. The hotel sits right on the main drag in town. I would pretty much have to repeat what the other reviewers said about it. The room was comfortable enough for a night's stay and surprisingly; the traffic noised wasn't too bad. Everything worked in... More

My daughter and I spent a night at the Western Motel during a late hunting trip. The price was right--a good value for two beds. The manager was friendly and helpful, though a little scatterbrained. The bedding was clean and comfortable. Another reviewer was correct: The carpet is probably due for a change (don't look under the beds). The heater... More

The owner/manager was friendly. The room was clean. It's probably about time to replace the carpet. However I expect in a small, out-of-the-way town like Magdalena it's hard to charge enough and have a high enough occupancy rate to do more expensive repairs like that. It's not the Four Seasons, but the price sure isn't the Four Seasons either. The... More

Don't listen to the guy who needs seperate king-size beds for he and his wife. That one sounds like a real piece of work. My family happened here by chance and we were very comfortable at this quaint motel. What it lacks in big chain corporateness it more than makes up for in charm. Room was cozy; equipped with TV,...

I loved the Western motel and enjoyed my stay. It is ran by new owners who are very nice. The rooms are western themed and are cleaned very well, also includes a microwave and a good sized refrigerator not one of those really small ones where nothing fits! My bed was neatly made and i slept comfy and cozy with... More
