What a delightful place to stay in Chama! We found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating. The room was spotlessly clean and very spacious. Parking was right outside our door. My husband and I always enjoy a room that has the lavatory and counter in a separate space from the bathtub and toilet, which was the case in... More

Pulled in after 643 mile ride and the owner offered me rags to wipe down my motorcycle. The owner informed me that my motorcycle was safe and if I wanted to I could chain it up to one of the pillars but that wasn't necessary. Room was clean like a hospital! Had a great nights sleep and didn't break the... More

My friends and I stayed at this hotel overnight. The staff were really friendly and helpful; the rooms were clean and spacious and had everything that we needed. We had a great night's sleep. It was nice to be right near a cute bridge and fast flowing river - something that we don't see very often in Australia, where I... More

What a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are excellent - clean, spacious and comfortable. Lots of car parking right outside your room which is great if like me you always bring to much luggage. Alwina, was absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough for us. She gave great advice on where to eat and visit locally. A great find that... More

This was a business trip but my family tagged along and we received the best service. Kim was just a sweetheart. She answered all our questions and treated my wife and kids with the greatest kindness. This is our choice when in Chama. Such an enjoyable stay. A+++++

I stayed here on an overnight business trip and it was very pleasant. The room was clean, appeared to have been remodeled recently and the price was very reasonable. My stay was during the off-season and during the week, so it was quiet for me, but probably not an indication for how quiet the rooms are during the tourist season.... More

This quiet and clean place is a Motel that feels like a Hotel. Great for sportsman, hunters and fisherman as it is right on the river. Wifi was good too. A short drive to the village, shopping and major highways.

What a gem of a place! Beds were awesome and the room was clean as a pin! And a real bargain too! Room was spacious and had good quality solid wood furnishings, a refrigerator and coffee too. No air conditioning but at 7800 feet elevation none needed, trust me on this!
