“What a beautiful place!”
Reviewed May 19, 2010

Recently stayed for one night at Canon del Rio. The end of a 14 day trip of the southwest. I was looking to capture the feeling of that area one more time before we left and we found it. What a peaceful place. The decor was superb. All the rooms were so beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Apache room, it was lovely. Breakfast was wonderful. The staff were extremely friendly. We had our last green chili cheesburger at the Los Ojos Saloon. I love that place, had been there before. It is a step back in time. I highly recommend the Canon del Rio. Wish I was there now!

My husband and I spent three nights in this gorgeous canyon, on the river, in this lovely adobe bed and breakfast and and would highly recommend it. Each of the 6 rooms open up to a center courtyard with outside seating and a pond filled with koi. The river flows down below. The rooms are all tastefully decorated with attractive furnishings, finishes, fabrics, decorations and art, representative of the blend of cultures in New Mexico. The owner is a long time resident and business owner from the community and the innkeepers are licensed massage therapists from Albuquerque, who all welcomed us warmly. A spa wing was recently added that is an inviting and functional therapeutic space, nicely designed to overlook the pool, with the river valley and canyon looming large. We enjoyed a package that came with an hour massage and the following day a foot treatment; both were so relaxing and added immensely to our stay. While we only had breakfast the first morning (because we had to leave before 9:00 AM the other two days) it was delicious and would've loved to have experienced more of their cooking. We were happy to be able to access coffee as early as we wanted and help ourselves to fruit. Our only suggestion would be for the inn to consider starting breakfast service earlier, maybe 8:00 - 9:30. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Jerralynn & Bernie, Oregon

This retreat was exactly that: a retreat from the world. A sense that it could all be left at the threshold and true relaxation could be achieved. And within the hour of arrival, this place achieved just that. Between the comfortable, rustic rooms and common great room with continuously burning kiva fireplace and a "help yourself" tea bar, this inn truly felt like a home away from home. The staff were amazing: welcoming, nurturing and pleasant. The breakfast was incredible, and the walking paths, bubbling river and meditation spaces capped it all off as a truly wonderful destination. We'll be back! Again and again and again.

We did not stay overnight at the Inn but we visited the spa and had the best experience! The staff was awesome and gave great advice on where to go and what to see around the area. They were very professional and the treatments were top notch without the high dollar price tag that you are starting to see these days.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the southwest, walk by the river amidst the beautiful red rocks, and indulge yourself in the soothing spa. The friendly staff and superior breakfasts create a warm, welcoming and very pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended!

This was a birthday gift from my hubby. We live in Jemez Springs & this was my first visit @ Canon del Rio. I was treated to a salt body glow, massage & then followed w/a 2 hr candle light yoga class on site.

What a wonderful way to pamper, soothe my soul & wonderful service!

The staff was very pleasant and hospitable without any of the faux friendliness one often finds in B&B style Inns. The rooms are attractive although not large. And we had a lovely evening sitting by the fireplace after a day of x-country skiing.
