Venue is ancient. Plaster falling off of walls and bathroom a real mess. Clean, but falling apart. Bed was horrible. The worst part was an ice machine that sounded like a road grader moving gravel. Would come on every 30 minutes followed by loud fan noise as more ice was made. Don't stay in rooms 8-12 if you are forced to stay here. Parking was difficult because lines were at an angle and a truck was always in the way. The sheets didn't match, more like garage sale stuff, you know real think and old style. In fact the bottom sheet didn't have enough elastic to stay on the mattress.

Response from Lewis K, Owner at Ace Lodge
Responded Jun 6, 2018
Some of our customers like the older building. As this person stated the rooms are clean. We are in the process of remodeling so we do have some updated rooms and plan to add more. We sell our rooms at a bargain price and many people like this as well. We have many return customers who have stated their appreciation for our rooms. And because they have returned several times I believe this speaks volumes Thank You Lewis Kern: owner

On my last-minute rush trip to New Mexico, this place was listed at $44 (plus tax) on TA. As I usually do, I called the motel to ask the price. He quoted $40, including tax. I'd be arriving late, but he said reception is open 24 hours: Ring the night bell and they'll be there. I asked about TA reviews saying things like old rooms smelling like mold; he said he'd give me the newest and nicest room available. (And, as I found out: He did.) Deal! After a long drive that ended after midnight, I rolled through T or C (as New Mexicans call it... before a contest on Bob Barker's 1950s broadcast show, the town was named Hot Springs). The motels I saw along the way had only a few cars... with dark signs along the street saying "No Vacancy". That made me nervous. (Tip: If you're coming from the south along I-25, take the north exit anyway. As I found out, it's faster.) But, about 30 seconds after I rang the bell here, a woman appeared, turned on the office lights, and checked me in without even wanting an ID. My non-smoking room had a strong smell: cigarettes? or renovation? (The man I spoke with on the phone had said they started renovation, the roof leaked... so they fixed that... now they've started on the rooms again.) Almost everything seemed new except for thin pillows with dingy pillowcases. There were plush and colorful (if worn) towels in the bathroom. There was lots of very hot water. The bathroom had all-new fixtures. My room was at the back. There was little road noise from the main drag. There was no morning coffee... just the room. The refrigerator was warm (it would be nice if, once they rented the room to me, they'd cool down the fridge). The room had only one electric outlet by the bed. TIP: I like to bring extension cords with a triple-power tap, or a power strip with an extension cord, to get more outlets and in case there's no outlet free. I grew up in New Mexico, so I already know this town as friendly, quirky (especially now, after the apparent-boondoggle Spaceport America), great hot springs (check out the funky Charles Hotel), and some delicious cafes with good New Mexican food. (Hatch, the town that's the now-famous source of New Mexico chile, is about half an hour south of T or C.) Next time, I may make this a destination rather than a place to spend the night.

Basic, clean, friendly staff. Real pet friendly (important!). The quietest motel I ever stayed in. I brought my own coffee and hotpot. I felt real comfortable. Central location. Glad I stumbled upon it and may stay an extra day!

You might want to update your pictures. The room was a bit scary. The bathroom was even worse! Mold growing in the shower. The soaps by the sink had been there awhile and had rust, or something on them. I almost slept in the car. Thankful it was only one night.
