Great prices for large rooms at this motel. Clean and comfortable. Nice covered seating area outside with nesting tiny birds in the roof supports (swifts). Large rabbits and hares seen in the area around. A great value overnight stop in this lovely little town

Terrible staff. Rude. Confrontational. Don't stay here. Visitor unfriendly. Pet unfriendly. Poor service skills. Trashy attitude. Get new staff or close. Have been here twice. Not coming again. Mountainair would be just fine if they dozed this place under and built a strip mall.

Stayed here with my family. Nice size 2 adjacent rooms with mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot, but not a B&B as advertise. Locals stay here. Thought we were staying in the room with no one next door until the loud banging of the neighbors door and talking early in the morning, yet no cars out front but ours. Did... More

Stayed at this motel during our trip to the Salinas Pueblo Missions. It was pretty much the only motel in Mountainair, The place from the outside does not look like much, but do not let that deceive you. The rooms are nice and clean and the bathrooms have been nicely remodeled . The lady at the front desk was very... More

We stayed at the motel since we had a busy weekend in town. We needed some quiet time in between the family reunion and a graduation party. We have plenty of relatives to stay with but decided to get a room. We were so pleased with the hospitality. Melita was so helpful in making our reservation and checking us in... More

Nice rooms, recently renovated. Satellite TV, three available wifi networks with strong signal. Gravel parking lot leaves much to be desired. Friendly owners, when we call the front desk to ask about an ice machine we were told there wasn't one but the would bring us a bag of ice.

We were traveling thru on a motorcycle trip and stopped in Mountainair to visit the ruins in the area. We liked this motel enough that we stayed an extra night. Very comfortable, friendly staff, and clean. The Alpine Alley in town is a good place to eat tho only open until 2 pm

The motel looks lake it would be recently remodeled as the bathroom and the area close to bathroom is modern and well appointed. The room was very clean and spacious with a king-size bed. There is a convenient Ancient Cities Restaurant nearby serving very good breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The other reviews are correct, the Rock Motel is "the" place to stay for the night. Rough looking on the outside, but very clean, large room, great shower, and the AC/heater works great. Quiet, even though on US 60 and and the trains are a few blocks away. Melita checks you in and runs the place, she is dedicated to... More

My husband and I spent two nights here when we were in Mountainair for the weekend. The room was extremely clean and in general the hotel seemed very well taken care of. There is a nice picnic area with BBQs in front of the hotel that provides a nice option if you're into cooking your own dinner. We were disappointed... More
