The people were friendly, but our room wasn't great. Saggy, uncomfortable bed, a small cramped room, and the tv mounted on the wall at the other end of the room. Some sketchy characters in the neighborhood. I would not stay here again

During a recent storm and a highway shutdown this place was one of a few that could serve people. Mr Lemus had a generator and was open throughout! Lots of people had a warm place to stay and really good food because this business was prepared. I highly recommend this place!

My wife and I stopped here on our way to Taos. Our dinner was very good and we had great service. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The price was right also! If you're looking for a great value and want to be treated right, it's worth checking out.

We spent last nite in the motel and then had probably the best FREE hot breakfast we have ever had at a motel or hotel. The skillet breakfast was served and sizzling. Michelle could not have been more accommodating. Front desk staff also helpful making copies for me while on vacation but work follows. Price was right.

Charged fees for situations that did not apply. Partially reimbursed but not satisfied. Room was beautiful and breakfast was amazing, but not worth the very expensive fees that were unduly, and unfairly assessed.
