We managed to get a room here when The Queensway Motel in Espanola gave away our credit card reserved room, so we are grateful. However, the hotel does not take pets or children. My travelling companion was my 17 year old son so this was not a problem. It was quite expensive but really the only viable option in the... More

Wow what a surprise to have a great lunch in a motor inn. We had asked a couple of locals walking where to eat and they recommended the Pine Ridge. We had a great lunch , all fresh and tasty at very low cost. The room itself is very nice log cabin style and the waitress was great and quick.

I'm not sure when I last ate at a place (if ever) that I ever felt the need to post a 'terrible' review. As noted above our server was rude, my fish and veg were cold to the touch whereas the fries were hot - I guess someone forgot to microwave it so it was at least all at the... More

Very friendly service and a warm atmosphere. Their specialty is prime rib which we really enjoyed, although I have to say the caesar salad was very uninspiring. The menu had a decent selection and the prices were reasonable… probably the best place to eat in Espanola.

The Pinewood Restaurant has a nice variety on its menu. Their specialty is prime rib which is very tasty. Try the ranch style potatoes for a nice flavorful change. Prices are reasonable and you can feel comfortable here in a suit or jeans and a t-shirt.

The service is very good and the staff are friendly. The food isn't the best I've tasted but not bad at all. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. I like the chicken parmesan and disappointed that they got rid of the salad bar. I understand that the salad bar generated a lot of wasted food so getting rid of it... More

Good menu choice food quality was nothing to write home about but not awful. We did love the friendly staff which is why we would return.

Wow - this place was a real surprise. It's a dining room in a dated motel, but you wouldn't know it based on the food. We had an exceptional meal for a great price. Really outstanding food. You have to try it. And the service was fantastic to boot.

My husband and I were visiting Espanola with friends and enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Our friends both had the baked salmon which they enjoyed. My husband and I had steak which was also very good. Our only disappointment was with the baked potatoes which was done with were made with new potatoes and therefore didn't have the crispy outer skin.... More
