Clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet, thoroughly renovated and reasonable priced. Friendly and helpful owners. We like it so much we stayed here twice as we came and went on vacation in southern New Mexico. They even have a large pavilion out front with BBQs so you can enjoy the breeze in the shade or cook a meal. We definitely recommend it.

Stayed: May 2013, traveled with family

I visit Mountainair on occasion to visit some of New Mexico's best archeological sites...Gran Quivira, Abo Salinas and Quarai. All sites are within 30 minutes of town and best 400 year old Spanish mission architecture anywhere in NM. A drive through town takes less than 5 minutes, a gas station, old style hardware store and Alpine Alley for eats. You're on the edge of the Chihuahua desert and short grass prairies with the 'Salinas' just east of town. Salinas are the salt playas (pueblo source of salt) that you can still drive into if you have the right map that shows federal lands connected to public roads...stop into your closest BLM office and purchase these land status maps. Every NM traveler will need these. I've tried all the places to stay in Mountainair, that's why I need to tell you about the Rock Motel. It's well worth the price, clean, comfortable, service attendants are very good. The Rock has come a long way in the last 5 years, now when I'm passing through, that's where I stop, and you should too.

Room Tip: take your pick

The Rock is located in the small town of Mountainair, New Mexico. This is an older motel that has recently been fully renovated. This is a family run motel and the owners really make you feel welcome.

The entire property is very clean and the rooms are large and spacious. Larger than some Farifield Inn's I have stayed in recently. The rooms include many great amenities such as a mini-fridge, microwave and free internet and long distance telephone. The Internet bandwidth was very good. I measured 6 MB down and 600 KB up. (Comparable to DSL.)

The new tile work in the bathrooms is really nice. Not your average hotel plain. Whomever did the renovations to this motel did a terrific job. They obviously have stayed in a lot of hotels. There are coat hooks in just the right places and many other conveniences that larger chain hotels are lacking.

Perhaps one of the best features on the property is the outdoor, covered area. They offer comfortable seating, gas grills and a fire pit that we enjoyed during our three night stay. Weather permitting, this is a great place to just hang out.

We visit this area frequently and we will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms offer a full kitchen.
