“We always love the Kokopelli, best place to stay between home and the mtns.”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

When we travel across the high plains, it's sometimes difficult to find a nice room. In fact we have often taken what's available (ick), but anytime we're heading to the southern Rockies, we route our trip through Clayton, NM. The Kokopelli is a little pricey compared to many motels, but we have always found the quality to be well worth it. Spotless rooms, beds in decent condition, a nice pool and landscaping for kids and pets, and very nice breakfast to start our travel the next morning. It's one of the best run "Best Westerns" we've run across.

Nice people, great rooms, beautifully landscaped. Next time I travel to southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, I'm staying here. Highly recommended. Capulin Volcano National Monument is cool, too!

This Best Western was a good motel to stay in, in this NE desert town in New Mexico.
The room was clean and had a nice Native American decor to it. Good size breakfast room with decent breakfast. Near the Capulin Volcano National Monument. There is a small pool (we didn't swim in it.) There is Native American jewelry to buy in the lobby and in a small store enroute to the breakfast room. Suggest you make advance reservations due to isolated location.

We stayed in the suite, and it was great. Nice jacuzzi. The complementary breakfast is also the best in town.
We had to stay in Clayton because our Uhaul broke down. When the owners found out that we had to reload our truck, they send out 2 maintenance guys to help us for over an hour until the job was done.

We wouldn't have stayed in Clayton by choice, but in the end we were glad we stayed at this hotel. It was great.

Ok, there's not a lot to do in Clayton, NM, but if you just need a place to rest on a long trip, then this hotel is great for you. We stayed in a suite with our four small children. It was very comfortable, squeaky clean, nicely-appointed. Honestly, I couldn't find a thing wrong with it. Even the A/C was quiet (I hate hotels with loud a/c units). The breakfast buffet was hot and top-notch (more than just a selection of cheap pastries). The playground is now fenced to keep the little ones in. In short, we all had a great time.

One thing to note: The pillows are thick, so if you like a thin pillow, you might want to bring one along.

Other than the Venetian Hotel in Vegas, I can't remember a nicer room. We stayed in the handicap room because we wanted a King on the first floor. It was large and extremely clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have a hot breakfast that was very good. With tax we paid $104 with an AARP card. I traveled for a living. I stayed in a lot of rooms.

Trip Advisor rated this place so highly I had to try it on the way home from Colorado Springs. Having had a horrible experience at a hotel there (see Cliff House review from me) I was pleased to fine a quiet, comfortable room.. Internet was provided as promised. Young lady at check in was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast buffet was complimentary, simple and wonderfully delicious. Room was clean beyond spotless.. Wonderful night. While Clayton is not the hot spot of NM., it can boast itself as having one of the best, inexpensive lodging options in the state. I will return.
