Small, slow-paced motel in a beautiful, remote location. The proprietors, Joe and Sara Jean, live on premises. They are decent, fascinating people, and attentive to every detail. Strongly recommended.

We stayed during the week 2 years ago during the big summer fires.It was a great time to go and meet a lot of nice people.We felt very safe there because 75% of the people in the area were firefighters. The owners of this little motel were super nice.We kind of like to be left alone when we get to our vacation sites so we can do our own thing and this place felt a lot like being at a friends home.I didn't feel like I needed to be anything but myself.It was very casual but clean and cheery.The owners had errands to run for the motel in another town on one of our days there and asked we would mind being on our own for a night so it was perfect for us. There is a tiny general store next door and a restaurant down the road. I wouldn't suggest it for a quick bite though. I paid $8.50 for a bowl of soup!!! I would return again with my kids. I had my dog with me and this place is pet friendly! Hummingbirds were everywhere!!

Room Tip: all of them are about the same.

This establishment has great people running it. I felt so welcomed like I never left home. The place itself is very clean and well maintained. Definitely recommend it to get away from city routine and enjoy country living. God bless you Joe and your family for taking care of us. Martin (aka chuck lol).

We loved our night at the Lake Roberts Motel. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a kitchen table, microwave, and fridge. We were just staying one night and wanted to be close to Gila Cliffs for a morning visit, but I could see this being a great multi-night base if you want to spend more time in this area. The owners were very warm and gracious, and made us feel welcome. The mountain location is quiet and relaxing, and a herd of deer wandered through the property in the evening. The only downside is we were there in the off-season, and there is no where to eat within at least 30 miles. Luckily we knew this ahead of time and brought some burritos and breakfast good from Silver City to prepare in our room. There is also a nice BBQ patio all ready for use if you bring your own supplies.

As other reviewers have noted, in this part of NM you do not have a lot out there to choose from. Fortunately the Lake Roberts motel is a great place to stay, regardless! The owners clearly love their job and do everything to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the little house-cabin rather than a regular room. Bathroom is beautifully remodeled. Nice kitchen. The cabin itself is cozy and beds are comfortable. Note that during the off season, there's really no place to buy groceries so the owners of the motel have stocked up on some basics in food and amenities that you can purchase at their office. Bonus: The Continental Divide trailhead is just a few miles back south along the highway.

Room Tip: For the tiny difference in price, you might as well spring for the cabin.

This motel has a very serene and quaint feel to it. It's owners are friendly and personable. If you're looking for a quiet spot far away in the mountains for relaxation, this would be a good choice. If you're just a tourist passing by, you might not appreciate the remoteness. That being said, that reflects only on the location, not the rooms or the service which are both good.

This was a wonderful place to stay the weekend with our family. The kitchenette was just the right size and there was a huge covered picnic area where we could have a family reunion where grills and tables were available for guests. The best part was the owners, so kind and gracious! We'll be back.
