What a great place to stay I travel alot and am rarely home. I've stayed in some shady motels and this place is a breath of clean comfortable air. The staff is helpful. Rooms are remodeled nicely and relaxing. This motel is cleaner than most high priced motels, where you are forced to where shower slippers all over the room.... More

We stay here at the frontier every year on our way home from a fishing trip in Farmington. The main reason is to eat at our favorite spot El Brunos Mexican Restaurant. This time I was surprised that the rates were higher than the years before. In the morning we had no hot water and no one answered the phone... More

We stayed here because it made visiting Chaco Canyon for sunset and sunrise very easy. The motel is located in Cuba, NM which is still a 70 mile drive into Chaco Canyon to the Visitor's Center. The motel has rooms located on both sides of the main road. Our room was across the street from the office. This did not... More

The owners were nice but don't keep regular hours. I got room with two queen beds, there were three of us staying - we got one washcloth. The WIFI didn't work, one channel on the TV, the bathroom vent didn't work, the bathroom sink drained very slow, one pillow smelled like dirty hair, I will bring a tent next time... More

As other reviews have said, this is the best place to stay in Cuba. The other hotels don't even look open for the most part. The room was fine for a night stay complete with a microwave. My bad experience was the front desk not telling me it was ACROSS THE STREET (newer rooms are here), and I had no... More

The Frontier motel is in a tiny, dusty town on the way to somewhere in New Mexico. Very affordable, dumpy, but very nice staff, clean rooms, a fine shower, and new towels. With not many other places to stay we feel fortunate to have landed here for the night.

We stayed across from the main motel in what looked like newly refurbished rooms. It was very comfortable, clean and everything functioned as it should. Had a small glitch with the TV but the owner fixed it immediately. Yes, they're still a little dated looking but that's the charm! Has a very homey feel to it and the owner wants... More

The room was clean. The motel has to sides, one is across the street. We stayed on the north side in one with a kitchenette. I like the little patio with a grill. It was nice. The beds are average. Nothing special. The one issue I had was there were no plugs in the bathroom. I wasn't able to plug... More

standard def TV; clean room with small fridge; large square shower and clean bed with acceptable mattress. There's a 24/7 gas station/convenience store across the street and a local restaurant two doors down. This is one of three motels in the town of Cuba, which sets at around 6900 fee - and you can't miss it as its the first... More

Not the newest, but well maintained and clean. We wound up staying in the room for 36 hours straight when a virus from home caught up with us in Cuba. It was a bad experience for me in general, but I was glad I was in this room and not a tiny, noisy, freeway joint. I hope I can get... More
