Road trip from Oklahoma to Colorado and we made the little town of Clayton New Mexico. There are a number of standard hotels here, a Best Western, Super 8, etc and they are all basically similar, but we opted to stay in the turn of last century downtown hotel - The EKlund Hotel. It has a very nice decor, a saloon and restaurant and outdoor patio. It is probably not well suited for families with small kids, as the rooms are a bit small, but our second floor room had a door that let to the balcony over Main street. The balcony had tables and chairs where we could enjoy the afternoon. Fairly close to the tracks, but everything in Clayton is close to the tracks. The dinner and breakfast were as passable as likely anywhere else in town. Our rate was a sweet $75 per night compared to $130 for the Best Western. No pool, but lots of room in the lobby and lots of historical goodies to look at.
