The owners of this lodge obviously take great pride in their place and it shows, from spotless property to prompt attention to a small room problem. The accompanying restaurant, Calamity Jane 's, is basic and tasty, not 5 star fare, but with the nicest, most fun staff I've experienced of late. It's refreshing going to a small place without chain-motel... More

My husband and I stayed in a queen cabin (duplex like building) at the Laguna Vista Lodge while on a long trip home from Idaho to DFW, Texas. We had wanted to stay in Taos but all of the rooms were booked and we ended up in Eagle Nest for the night. Our cabin had a large room with a... More

Eagles nest is a small town. Hotel is almost more like a motel. Charming room and decor. Plenty large. Basics-no a/c in summer-it would be ok except the big windows face the hall where the lights are on all night. Also the bug zapper is working all night outside the door. A floor fan was all there was to move... More

Our room was huge! We had plenty of seating in comfy armchairs, places to set down our belongings, great counter space around the sink with ample lighting and a big mirror. The bathtub-shower and the shower curtain were super clean. All the plumbing worked well, even the tub drain, a typical hotel fail point. The king bed had a nice... More

A locally owned small motel with up to date features. Wifi and fancy television reception. In the lobby are many DVDs which can be watched in the rooms as well. Spacious and very clean. While there is no ice machine, it is easily obtained from the far across the parking lot. The only A C available is to open the... More

We stayed here for one night while on a 2-week motorcycle trip from Minneapolis. We stayed in remodeled deluxe king cabin #20 (king bed) for $85. It was beautiful! My husband was awed, and he does not usually pay that much attention to our accommodations. The room was large with beautiful furnishings. It had a ceiling fan, coffeemaker with coffee,... More

Right on Eagle Nest Lake with a spacious outdoor area to view the lake and the stars, the lodge is one of a kind.

This was our first time staying at Laguna Vista Lodge. We've been coming to Eagle Nest for years but have had our own RV. This was such a wonderful surprise; a very large, spacious room. Very clean, newly painted, nice carpet and very thick white towels. We had a king room/downstairs with 2 rocker chairs, 2 nice chairs with table... More
