Casa Del Sol
Ranked #2 of 2 Portales B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 5, 2012

B&B's are a hit-or-miss thing in my experience, but if you can stand a "work-in-progress," Casa del Sol in Portales is a real oasis of at-ease comfort. Your reward is a bed that's likely as comfortable as any you've ever tried to sleep in and an historic property that reflects Spanish/New Mexican style.

Penny and Carol are welcoming hostesses and to my fortune, were gracious enough to invite me to join them and a few their friends on the covered porch (a huge back yard) for a cold beer. Very nice people all the way around.

You might not be as lucky as me in that regard but you'll find the guest room off of the historic "main house" to be very comfortable. There are a few "work in progress" things that might not fly for some folks - some touching up that hasn't been finished, a pretty-small TV that seems too far away to watch - but the good vibes here certainly made up for any minor shortcomings and it's a place I'll not hesitate to return to. Room rate was also VERY reasonable - I've paid much more in other more "polished" places and not felt nearly as good about the stay...

Breakfast, by the way, was good and hearty - and served spot-on the time I requested.

Getting there CAN be a bit of a trick - in Portales, some of the numbered streets (like the 17th Street that the Casa is on) are one block removed from the same-numbered "lane." Just a little thing to watch for but it will save on confusion when you're homing in your evening's rest....

Quiet and clean with comfortable beds and wonderful proprietors. It is the most beautiful property in town. Close to Cannon AFB and Clovis. It is across the street from the University campus. Their website is www.casadelsolportales.com

Room Tip: I prefer La Casita, and Kokopelli is also wonderful.
