“Best Western Kokopelli Lodge is a perfect 10”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Best Western Kokopelli Lodge is a perfect 10 in all rating categories. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. The staff was professional and friendly. The quality and variety of the breakfast food was far beyond what is served at hotel chains with scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, French Toast, and cereal and included homemade green Chilli, cinnamon rolls, and muffins.

The Kokopelli Lodge in Clayton, New Mexico is the best of the best chain. They welcome our dogs (fee charged) with a doggie bag of treats, and have a little doggie park for taking care of business. They do extra cleaning in rooms where pets have stayed. The breakfast includes biscuits, fried potatoes, real eggs, sausage, gravy, salsa, fresh cinnamon rolls, yogurt - and it all tastes great. There are so many small niceties to the rooms and the southwestern decor is in excellent taste. When we are on the road, we just keep driving until we reach Clayton.

Drove from Telluride CO via Taos NM to here and luckily stumbled on the BW when about to go back to the little Motel at the entrance to Clayton. The whole place had a real Indian flavour which was delightful and different to your normal bland rooms.The place was clean and comfortable with fluffy towels and quite rooms and had a great nights sleep. It wasn't the cheapest BW but I can comfortably say it had one of the best Breakfast we had during our 6 week trip. Suffice to say , the B'Fast room was pleasant , well decorated , the food was well presented , the coffee hot , the staff attentive and it all made for a great start to the day and for the long drive ahead to OK City via Dodge City KA !!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a non-smoking , pet free room !

We wanted a pet friendly hotel for a pleasant overnight rest that is near the halfway point between our summer and winter residences. This hotel works nicely for us in location, amenities and special needs. The dbl queen suite is as spacious as a Residence Inn w/o the kitchen. We've sampled the appealing breakfast buffet in a convenient clean dining room. The staff is pleasant. Wide screen TV, comfortable beds, large bathroom, usable sitting area and a clean ambiance meets our creature comfort standards. Nominal pet fees, free pet treats, a doggie park and doors opening directly to the outside keeps Trevor and Gus in good spirits. If I had my druthers, I would like an elevator, digital TV and lots more channels. The parking is forced, but I haven't ever had to park in the overflow gravel lot. We'll be back halfway on the return leg this Spring.

Don't let the older appearance of the hotel keep you from staying here. The rooms were updated and decorated in a native motif. Probably the best value was breakfast. It was almost like staying at a B&B. Nice hot breakfast with very good coffee (hard to find in a motel that offers complimentary breakfasts). There were also fresh homemade cinnamon rolls.

On our way to see our son for Thankgiving and found this oasis. What a pleasant surprise! Well maintained, CLEAN beautifully appointed rooms. Professional and friendly staff. Wonderful "real" breakfast.
Can't wait to see the finishing touches. We made a point to stop by and use this hotel on our way back home to Colorado.

Room Tip: Don't think there is a bad room.

There are many lower priced motels in Clayton, but the Kokopelli Lodge has exceptional service (the late night clerk was great) and rooms. The room was clean, had great pillows, comfortable bed. Love the native crafts they have for sale and the breakfast is above average. I will return.
