If you need white towels and sheets, don't stay here. Our room had a King size bed, no spread, green sheets, one red towel, one blue. The floor was just boards painted royal blue, no carpets. The meager furnishings were definitely flea market quality. The weird thing was there was an enormous kitchen. It had a microwave, coffee maker and... More

I try to avoid comforters and spreads. We use one bottom sheet and two top sheets. There are blankets in the closet or dresser, if you need them. We also line dry most of our sheets and towels. I try to avoid white sheets and towels. I try to find the brightest colors I can get. Sheets are always washed... More

My boyfriend and I booked the aptly named "Blue Room" for our anniversary this weekend. After a clerical error (which unfortunately we were not informed, or aware of, until we emailed them to confirm our reservation), we ended up spending only one night there and one night in a nearby property, Pink Pelican. I am actually quite glad that this... More

Have stayed here several times, and savor its artsy, funky, colorful, quixotic style. Every room is different; the baths are really basic and somehow endearing, and the location makes it walkable to everywhere in town. Homey personalized service. Not a luxury/gooshy/spa/thick robe place but a treat for folks seeking the delightful unbeaten path.

The Pelican Spa has it's own special charm. If you like eclectic and artsy, this place is for you. The hour long private tub soaks were awesome, and you could sign up for them as much as you like during your stay. The mineral water is pretty warm (103-108) so you can add cold water to get the temp to... More

Spent a night here with my family, including two children and enjoyed every minute of it. We stayed in the Aqua Room and the Turquoise Suite. We opted to have two rooms so we could take advantage of the Aqua room with a private tub in it and the Turquoise Suite gave us the space we were needing. The rooms... More

on the recommendation of friends we stayed here and still can't believe what a great deal it is and what a funky spot. Do yourself a favor - bypass the chains on the interstate and take the time to find this place - you will not be disappointed - great restaurants within a block didn't hurt either!

We stayed in the PAM building of the Pelican spa. Our $55/ night room included unlimited soaking in the private spring baths. This is a quirky place, certainly not ritzy. But it is clean, walking distance to everything, and the staff is friendly. Definitely will be back.

Spent three days at the Pelican while taking part in a silent retreat at the Studio de la Luz. The main building and apartments across the way are a BRIGHT pink. At first, I was taken aback with the bright colour, but the beautiful boulders, rocks, iron art work and stone Chinese guard lions in the enclosed patio changed my... More

The Pelican Spa is fantastic! Perfectly funky, quirky, and cool just like the town of Truth or Consequences. We stayed in 3 different rooms over the course of 5 weeks. All of them with vintage 50's flair, colorful decor, and original art. The rooms were very affordable and included daily unlimited soaking in the hot springs. Can't beat it! Staff... More

We decided to stop in T or C on our way to AZ to cut driving time. I did some quick research and found this place. Don't let this little neighborhood drive you away! It's different, but amazing. We paid $45 for the night and got an awesome little room (every room is different) with a little sitting area, queen... More
