“Awesome lil' hole in the wall place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

La Junta CO was taking advantage of the oil pipeline guys and their $$$ so decided to check this little town 20 miles farther east, and to my amazement, another GREAT move and find on my behalf!?! Great price, clean rooms, recently remodeled, not a Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn, in my opinion BETTER!! Small, rustic, older property with business minded Americans!!! If you want a good nights sleep in a quiet, clean, inexpensive place......check em out!! Guaranteed you wont be the least disappointed if you don't mind small town lifestyle!?!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

When I visit the Las Animas Area, I stay at this motel. It is clean and reasonably priced. All the rooms have been redone - completely, like down to the flooring - within the last couple of years. They do allow dogs to stay in this motel. For lunch there is a DQ right across the street and for dinner there are 2 restaurants within walking distance. For breakfast...believe it or not, go towards the west side of town to the tank and tummy! Yep, there's a tiny restaurant inside the gas station. Their food is good and the kitchen was newly renovated - clean. BTW, good pizza here too. Anyway, back to the motel, the manager and his dog are very friendly and he keeps the place quiet and safe. They have free Wi-Fi and Direct TV. There is only one other hotel in town, I promise you, you will be sorry if you don't stay at the Santa Fe!

Across the street from Dairy Queen. Quiet place. Small parking lot, not a lot of room if you have a truck. No pool or hot tub. Good place to just sleep and shower. Staff seems nice and there is a nice medium size dog to greet you as you arrive.

They offer a discount for prison visitors, which was also the reason for our stay. They are located about a mile from the Bent County Prison. For the same price, I'd rather stay at the Super 8 in La Junta about 30 mins away, as there is a Village Inn close by to have breakfast at in the AM. The Santa Fee Tail Inn only offers a small Sunny Delight and small pre-packaged fruit rool/pastry for breakfast.

Nice flat screen TVs. Hardwood floors need to be glued down better. Bathroom was clean except the mold on bottom of shower curtin.
