“pig with lipstick”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The hotel looks clean enough. The people are nice. But nothing works!! The pool is out of commission and has been for a A long Time according to employees. I even had a maid walk straight into our room without knocking. Everywhere you look in the room including the bathroom there is some kind of damage they either just semi-cleaned and left that way or painted over. It is a shame to see people who just don't care. They are only looking to get paid. I will not be back. If you stay there take Clorox wipes and bedding.

We stayed at this motel on our way to Santa Fe. The front desk clerk was rude and unfriendly, the pool was closed, the rooms really need a make over as do the bathrooms, and by 9am most of the breakfast was gone. on the plus side, Maxine was our check out clerk and was awesome and friendly, the beds are comfy and those are the only positive things I have to say about the comfort inn.

My construction crew stayed here for a week because it was the last hotel available in the area. We will never do that again. Even soap that each person brought with them were stolen from the rooms and when my crew spoke with the front desk, it was their word against the staff. Even the owner was no help. There were also several attempted vehicle break-ins and items were taken from truck beds. It was a place to sleep but that was it. It will be better to drive to Santa Fe than stay here.

We got there at 8, breakfast was available until 9. the coffee was empty, both juice flavours were out, dispensing only water, the 'hot' breakfast of eggs and sausage were stone cold. And the bins were overflowing by so much we took our rubbish back to our room to get rid of. Not impressed.
Follow up on the pool comment below - it seemed to be back open.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

it seems like it needs a bit of work, thats for sure. i was unaware the reason for the pool closure, but that makes sense, as for the neighborhood,, and auto security, thats SOP for anywhere in rio arriba county, and especially espy., (its actually advisable to leave ones car unlcoked to avoid broken windows in that area)< i got a decent rate via choice privileges, but i got initially hit up for a $25 deposit, but it was waived due to my 'age', is myunderstanding-its not noted on the choice website, so, i presume its decided on whether or not a cash guest is under 25YO.(i reserved with a CC), but prefer to pay cash.with that said, i am of the mind that the pool closure should be noted on choices site, as well.the breakfast had many proteins, (pre-prepared egg flats, and sausage, howver, the chafing dish didnt seem able to keep things heated very well-from what i could gather the manager was out of town for soem reason, and the staff was dloing the best they could with her via telephone, the young ladies were, very helpful, my room had some techncial issues, -that they noted before i did, and moved me to a slightlhy nicer one), with that said. the chincese restaurant next door, is one of the better, more cleaner buffets in the state. and priced within bounds of reason.i probably would have given a slightly better review, had the pool been in working order.

Room Tip: go on choice privileges site directly and make sure you dont pay over $50 with tax.

Just passing through on our way to sante fe. Did what we needed it to do, beds and 4 walls, but dont expect more than that! The front desk was nice enough to charge us the two people price for three which we really appreciated!
