Nice small motel. Room was immaculate. Loved the idea of showing up late-ish and just letting ourselves in. No fuss. Owner was very nice when we met him in the morning. Definitely have breakfast with the locals at the Belly Deli next door in the morning; a decent breakfast at a bargain price. We will stay here again on our get-aways to New Mexico.

My friend and I shared the Palms Room. The room was large, comfortable, and inviting. The soaking tub is huge - large enough to float in or share with another person without feeling at all crowded. The bed is firm, and there are several comfortable chairs, a table, and storage areas. The room is equipped with a small refrigerator and a coffee pot (real coffee, not some weird pod things and real cups.) Richard is very friendly, and makes it apparent that he wants his guests to feel comfortable requesting anything they might need. The courtyard is lovely, I spent several mornings just relaxing, doing needlework, and drinking coffee. Each room is different in feel, and all are beautiful - Richard tells me that he has personally designed and built the wonderful soaking tubs, and made some of the unique furniture in the rooms. These are not your standard motel rooms.

There are several excellent places to eat within a few minutes walk of the Fire Water Lodge. I especially recommend Bella Luca directly behind the Lodge for elegant Italian food and wine and Barbeque on Broadway across the street from the parking area for wonderfully old fashioned down home barbeque. The room comes with a coupon for two egg, cheese, and bagel sandwiches from the Happy Belly Deli next door - fair warning, that sandwich is huge! If you would rather, the coupon can be used as a six dollar off coupon on two breakfast or lunch items - I recommend the french toast. The Happy Belly Deli does offer vegetarian selections.

The Fire Water Lodge is place in the downtown historic district, and is surrounded by many artist studios and shops. The place is wonderful for wandering and shopping.

Come prepared to be left alone. If you so desire it is possible to spend your whole stay completely isolated. If you choose,you may join any of the impromptu groups that form in the courtyard in the evenings. No phones, no room service and all the hot mineral baths you can stand...indoors or out. This is NOT the Hilton, so be self sufficient. The rooms are an absolute delight...rustic comes to mind...old Mexico is the theme, local artists and interesting book shelves. The prices are most reasonable. Check with the innkeeper, Richard, for spot on descriptions and guidance to local eateries and entertainment. The Pacific Grill and Dukatt '77 are not to be missed and the lake, Elephant Butte, is a must see. A total escape for the harried.

Stayed here with my wife and dogs on a trip to and from Santa Fe. Stayed in Eucalyptus Room, which has its own outdoor private mineral bath. Loved everything about room and atmosphere of place. Funky, but in an incredibly charming way. Highly recommend for those seeking a romantic get away.

The experience of customer service is one that this establishment has fulfilled. We were on a ten day vacation with part of that time set aside for the Hatch Chili Festival which was the first weekend of September. Once I realized that Truth or Consequences was just directly north of Hatch, well that changed our plans because I had become aware to the area offering Hot Springs Mineral Baths. This was a delight. To say the least.....the tub was big enough to float in for two and the room was spotless and warm with colors of the Southwest. The Fire Water Lodge is a pleasure that we plan on experiencing again. Thank you so much for acomadating my special requests before arrival time, I appreciated this.
