First of all let me just say we did not stay here. My family and I just pulled up and ended up finding a place to stay elsewhere. Reason we left was upon pulling up there were quite a few strange people loitering around the place inside and out, no doubt there was some strange activities happening there. I did... More

The room we stayed in was disgusting! There were dead bugs along the edges of the walls, no deadbolt lock on the door and the light just above our door outside was broken. When we walked under the broken light to go in, bats flew out! It was late and we were tired so we stayed the night, but got... More

This place is absolutely filthy! There was feces on the wall, carpets are old and filthy with stains everywhere and old fingernail clippings on the floor. Sheets were full of hair and comforter and pillow had stains all over. Heater worked for a while and then it would trip the breaker. Had a freezing cold room all night and the... More

We were desperate. Otherwise, we would have kept driving another hour or two. We passed through two small towns where the restaurants were shuttered. Those towns must have been hit hard by the economy. We came to this third town, found a place, but it was only open for lunch and we just missed it. My mom spoke to a... More

This was our third time staying at the Rio Cucharas. It is very quiet, and we prefer the second floor rooms. Love the view of the Spanish Peaks. We like it, because it is close to La Veta, Zapata Falls, The Great Sand Dunes, Hooper Hot Springs, etc. We didn't partake of the Continetal Breakfast. I was hoping for a... More

Grossest motel ever! Look at the rooms before you pay! Sketchy people running the joint, dirty rooms, dogs in the lobby. Stained sheets and mattresses, nasty floor and no locks on doors! Just avoid it all together! I'd sleep in my car before staying there!

We pulled into Rio Cucharas around 11PM. The other motels in town are small mom and pops and fill up or have offices that close early. The room rates weren't bad. We got the "Executive Suite" which has two double beds. The AC worked fine and the beds were comfortable, but the floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in... More

The manager was nice and friendly. The room was clean, however they really need to replace a lot of things. The towels were small, thin, and rough. The washcloths looked like rags. The sheets had holes and were ragged. The carpet wasn't all that great. The blinds need replaced as a couple of slats were broken, so anyone could peer... More
