We stayed here one night when we came to Antonita to ride Cumbres & Toltec Train. This is a bare bones place to stay, basically only a bed & bathroom. The TV was old and had lines running through picture on screen. No other amenities available. Breakfast was coffee, cereal, & some kind of muffins, that were fair. Main positive... More

The pros: Really nice owner/manager, and good location for taking the train. Lovely valley view especially during the sunset. The con: This place needs some love and upgrading. I didn't think it was very clean, and there was a lot of dust, etc. under the beds. Water in sink first came out reddish-brown. Both of us have CPAPs and there... More

Expect a clean comfortable bed, quiet surroundings, homemade muffins and breads with milk and OJ for breakfast, very close proximity to the Cumbres and Toltec railroad, hot shower with good water pressure. Also expect gaps under the door, old furnishings and fixtures, floor creakings from upstairs, and poor Wifi (no Verizon coverage in the area). Bare necessities, inexpensive, great convenience...

Bed was comfortable, room was clean and quiet, price was right. We did not get the 'breakfast' option, having read other reviews, and there was no phone in the room. No pictures on the wall, only one dark stain on the carpet. The TV did not work very well at all. As initially stated, basic accommodation.

What a sweet place to stay! The people here are fantastic. Our room was the cleanest I have been to in quite a while. The paint looked fresh. The carpeting looked new. The bathroom fixtures were sparkling. The bathroom linoleum looked new. The bed... oh the bed.... wow.... what a comfortable sleep! We stayed 2 nights, and it was wonderful.... More

This hotel is right across the parking lot from the Cumbres & Toltrec Railroad station so it is very convenient if you're taking the train from Antonito to Chalma but there are more and better lodging options in Chalma, which you might want to consider. The staff were minimally friendly and even though the booking website said I could request... More

I guess I shouldn't be too hard on this place (not much choices in this town). The clerk was very helpful. The breakfast consisted of "Home Style" (as if you were staying at a friends house). Selection was cereal, oatmeal and some *homemade sweet bread*. This is an older hotel cinder block motel with very little room. The beds were... More

Antonito is a small rather run down town where we wanted to stay after traveling on the Cumbres Toltec Railroad. We found this motel on line and pre-booked. We arrived in the early evening and the motel seemed as though it had seen better days. However, we were greeted by the friendly, helpful manager and enjoyed his wife's home made... More
