I've not stayed in a room at the Charles Motel, but I have soaked there numerous times. In February, the Charles was running a special where two people could soak in the hot tub on the roof for only $10. I love me a special, so I made a reservation to soak with the man I was wooing. The soak...

The Charles Motel has some redeeming qualities and some areas that need great improvement. This motel started out in World War II as a health spa. The first room we were given had the appearance of a hotel room from WWII. The bed was saggy and soft, the comforter smelled of urine, the door didn't close well and the window...

Good experience. Those who are complaining about this place are high maintenance. This is a low end price range soak and motel.. Affordable, clean, old, and vintage chic. The beds were saggy but it comes with the character of the place. Vintage chic rural New Mexico experience. Hipster haven!!

For every night that you stay in the Charles Motel & Hot Springs Spa, you get a free one-hour soak in the private tubs in the back, in the old 1930s spa part :) Let the chains have theirs and stay in something with character, history, personality, and kindness. My room was HUGE for when I did yoga in the...

Nice , inexpensive , clean comfortable , enjoyed my free one hour soak in the hot spring water tub. It truly relaxes you for several hours after. Staff was very nice also. We will definitely stay there again.

For what you pay, you get a comfortable, clean room with a free soak right in the heart of ToC. It's got somewhat of a minimalist approach in that the rooms are far from gaudy, but you're in southern New Mexico and for me it is very representative of its place, and they still have all the usual amenities in...

I'm a NM native and an adventurous traveler, not one to shy away from a new experience. My wife and I went up to T or C for a weekend and had hoped to stay at one of the hot springs spas. The town was totally booked and this was our only option. Lesson #1: book in advance Staff was...

We just spent 3 nights at the Charles in T or C, and were surprised how much we enjoyed our stay, as we weren't expecting much for the price. First of all, the room was much larger than we expected, there was a walk in closet where we were able to fit all of our luggage and clothes. There were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Charles is made up of two historical buildings. The Spa building, constructed in the late 1940s, and The Charles Apartments, built in the early ‘30s, sit side-by-side on Broadway, awaiting the arrival of guests who venture to the southwest for a relaxing getaway, or on a quest for healing, or even who "just had to stop in a town called Truth or Consequences." The real joy of the Charles Spa and Motel lies in the mineral-rich water that flows from the ground beneath the facility, arriving in the Charles’ baths at a piping 112 degrees Fahrenheit. This incredible water has been used in healing for centuries and is also available in our private outdoor Jacuzzis. A nice hot bath is perfect prior to an in-house massage which is available by appointment. ... more   less
