As other reviewers have noted, in this part of NM you do not have a lot out there to choose from. Fortunately the Lake Roberts motel is a great place to stay, regardless! The owners clearly love their job and do everything to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the little house-cabin rather than a regular room. Bathroom is beautifully remodeled. Nice kitchen. The cabin itself is cozy and beds are comfortable. Note that during the off season, there's really no place to buy groceries so the owners of the motel have stocked up on some basics in food and amenities that you can purchase at their office. Bonus: The Continental Divide trailhead is just a few miles back south along the highway.

This is an outdoor paradise with endless outdoor activities including fishing, kayaking, bicycling, hiking, birding, hunting, and more.

Your stay here will be the most stress free time you'll ever have and give you a chance to drink our natural mountain water and breath fresh mountain air. Sit around the camp fire with your friends and family roasting marshmallows and hotdogs and gaze at the stars. You owe it to yourself to come and enjoy. ... more less
