This hotel was a wonderful delight to discover in this lesser known part of New Mexico. Our brief stay was a wonderful respite in what otherwise would have been just another long drive through the state. Next time, we’ll return with this as our destination to take in more of the gems in the surrounding area – historic Las Vegas, Salman Raspberry Ranch, Storrie Lake, and so much more.
The hospitality at the hotel was incredible from the get go. When the owner spotted us in line behind another couple checking in, she immediately stepped up to the front desk to keep us from waiting. Her recommendation on where to eat dinner sent us out to a nugget (Dick’s) that we would have surely missed, otherwise. Throughout our visit, we were always personally recognized and attended to, to make this stay as special as possible.
The public spaces and hotel rooms were all very clean and inviting. Little details such as a bougainvillea in the hallway and serving accessories for the microwave, just added to the experience. The comfortable beds made getting up challenging, but we were rewarded with the complimentary breakfast featuring a nice assortment of warm and cold offerings. The pool and spa were as nicely maintained as we have ever seen, with the water temperatures for both at just the perfect level. All in all, this stay was a real treat.
Room tips: Stay and extra day or two to enjoy the area. Splurge on a suite for the extra space and comfort.
