I am a world traveler. Having been a regular guest at the Charles Hotel and Spa for seven years, I would like to say that compared to all the places I have stayed, this is by far the most comfortable and accommodating place I have ever visited. This is not a cookie-cutter, plastic, or flamboyant southwestern-style hotel. The proprietor Kathy... More

For only $5, you can soak indoors for an hour in hot hot water, and you get a towel! The staff is very friendly and take pride in the fact that all tubs are cleaned between soaks. The water is very hot and wonderful. Men and women are in separate parts of the building. Each tub is in its own... More

The rooms are not nice but they are clean. We would probably go back but the beds are really bad. The baths are great and the folks that run the place are great. The price is good but, again, the nights sleep was miserable for all 3 of us.

I loved it here and plan to stay again on my next trip to T or C. It is very reasonably priced, clean, quiet and the management, Kathy, is very attentive and personable. It is conveniently located and has nice views of Turtleback Mountain.

Nostalgic and funky. It is a must stay at place. No two rooms are a like. There is no other place in town that offers so much for your money and it has Kathy to boot. Hot spring bath, body wraps, and massages all in one sitting.

The Charles is like the town--old, off-beat, and kind of bohemian. It's got personality. My suite was clean and quiet, not luxurious, but perfectly satisfactory. What I love most are the things you'll find nowhere else. Doing yoga outside my room on the roof with a view of Turtleback Mountain. Soaking under the stars in the hot spring. The staff... More

I shared here with my 2-year old daughter and got great value for the trip. The hotel is older, but the room was clean, the bathtub was nice, and the trip included a soak in the mineral springs (private tubs - men's side and women's side). I would highly recommend paying the $9/person to go to the private Jacuzzi on... More

Reserved a private roof top tub in the evening hoping to see some amazing nm night skies... Was sent up to the roof by a not so attentive attendant, to an empty jacuzzi tub. Returned down stairs for directions on filling tub, " oh yeah, turn the red nozzle. Go up and turned red nozzle nothing comes out... Back downstairs,... More

From the outside, the place looks inviting, with a 1940s southwestern vibe. The lobby and souvenir shop are clean and well kept. The desk clerk took us on a brief tour of the hot spring tubs, and that should have tipped us off right then and there. They were old, funky, and grimy. Plus, they're segregated into one section for... More

My wife and I have been going to the Charles Motel and Hot Springs for the past 3 years, and have foud it to be outstanding in service, accomodations, and especially an excellent price range: very, very affordable. Outstanding service and courtesy from the staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Charles is made up of two historical buildings. The Spa building, constructed in the late 1940s, and The Charles Apartments, built in the early ‘30s, sit side-by-side on Broadway, awaiting the arrival of guests who venture to the southwest for a relaxing getaway, or on a quest for healing, or even who "just had to stop in a town called Truth or Consequences." The real joy of the Charles Spa and Motel lies in the mineral-rich water that flows from the ground beneath the facility, arriving in the Charles’ baths at a piping 112 degrees Fahrenheit. This incredible water has been used in healing for centuries and is also available in our private outdoor Jacuzzis. A nice hot bath is perfect prior to an in-house massage which is available by appointment. ... more   less
