Driving by this place might make you want to keep driving but don't let the outside fool you. YES, this place has been around a while but the rooms have been updated. VERY clean, quiet and comfortable. Owners were very nice. Rooms were large. Very nice stay as we were passing through.

Disappointed when the price was much higher than was reported by other reviewers. Tried to negotiate but the owner wouldn't budge. Outdated but clean. Owner have us our money back, which was good. But if she would have negotiated a little we would have been happy.

We were here on memorial Day weekend so everything filled up quickly. Luckilly for us there still was a room available at a very friendly rate. Check in was nice and friendly. Rooms a bit on the small side but ok clean. Acceptable wifi. What more can you ask for (oh yeah they got a great neon sign)

Left Denver after work on a Friday and drove to Walsenburg, on our way to Santa Fe. The Anchor Motel worked great as a place to get some rest for an early morning drive to Ft. Garland and then down to Santa Fe. The folks at the front desk were very pleasant and gave good advice on places in Walsenburg... More

This was our first stop on our spring break. It was late and we were looking for what ever came up first. Stopped in at the Anchor and it was best thing we did. First off the owners live on site. Second the rates were amazingly low. Third the room was so cute and very clean. it made a nice... More

I liked staying here and will stay here again. The room and bathroom were very clean, quiet, and comfortable. I did not hear any trains but that could be because my husband sleeps with a c-pap machine. Our room was spacious for an older "mom & pop" motel. The owners are on property and very nice. There is no free... More

Great folks. Bend over backward to help. Inexpensive yet clean and friendly. Walsenburg is a cute town with lots of antiquing and small mom and pop shops. Great swimming hole on the outskirts of town and the mountains are just a 15 minute drive away.

Traveling to another part of the State of Colorado, my husband and I decided to stop since it was getting late. The people are very friendly and helpful, and told us up front that the room was small, and it was a smoking room. We are non-smokers, and normally a little smoke smell doesn't bother me. I went in the... More

We needed a cheap place to stay overnight on short notice and this place was perfect. When I called at 9:50pm the owner stated the office closed at 10pm and we were still about 20 minutes out but she said she would stay open until we got there. The only concern was if the A/C was going to work or... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night when traveling from Houston to Denver. I did my research using Trip Advisor and all reviews were excellent, so we chose to stay here for a night. Very nice staff that assisted us with check in. Rooms may be small but exceptionally clean. Microwave and refrigerator were a welcome surprise. Bathroom... More
