We only stayed here for a night on our way through Truth or Consequences. It was a cute, clean place and the decor was unique. The rooms are fairly small but have everything you need for a short stay.

Hotel's Favorite
This was perfection! We loved the outdoor tables and chairs to relax and watch sunset and my early riser husband sat out there for two hours in the morning reading and drinking coffee and chatting with other people. My family is super picky about cleanliness and they both loved it here! I wish we could have based out of this inn for our entire NM visit as no one wanted to leave and it was hands down the best place we stayed during the 7 night trip. To compare, we came from a Hampton Inn and went to a Best Western and this was superior to both of them! The air conditioner was silent and the room was nice and cool. We loved having a ceiling fan as well! Everyone got a good nights sleep!

We were looking for a place to stay that wasn't one of the big chains and the Rocket Inn was perfect! We checked in with one of the owners who had lots of info about places to eat and some things to do. The room was updated - not fancy but clean and nice. It had a ceiling fan, which we both loved, and the AC worked perfectly. The bath had been remodeled and the king bed was super comfortable. Parking right in front of our room (we were in #4) was a plus. There are also areas outside with chairs and tables for just hanging out. If we are ever in T or C again, we won't hesitate to stay here again!

We spent one night here on our way through Truth or Consequences, and it was lovely. Room 11 had nice chairs outside, sheltered by a blue fence, and we had a delightful outdoor dinner and watched the sun set. Fridge and microwave and coffee maker in room. Room 11 had two queen beds. Quite a small room, but just what you need for a short stay. It's half a mile to the Brewery and downtown restaurants, walk-able if it's not too hot. Also a short drive to the state park and lake.

Room Tip: Room 11 at the end of the line. Very small though.

Stayed here for two weeks in November 2020. Unfortunately, due to COVID, many of the tourist attractions in Truth or Consequences were shuttered; however, I was lucky enough to discover this gem of a motel and get to stay here. Cute, cozy, and clean! Also, owned and operated by a local couple, who genuinely care about their motel and their guests! 5 stars!
