We always get a great clean, comfortable room here for about fifty bucks, even around the holidays. Pool and whirlpool are open late.

It's a great place to sleep while snowboarding. Don't expect the best and you won't be dissapointed. Also, don't walk out onto Cerriillos Road because there are alot of bums that walk around. That's right, i said bums. So, stay in your room or in your car and you'll have a great time. The hot tub and indoor pool are great after a long day on the snow. Oh, and they have a waffle maker so you can have all-you-can-eat free waffles in the morning. That rocks. If you're like me and all you want is a clean bed and bath to sleep in after the mountain, you'll be happy. The carpet's a lil dingy and the place could use a remodel but it's all good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a refrigerator and microwave. They're handy for cold beer and reheated pizza...

people who complain about there stays are always looking for the little details in every room they stay in.... yes the carpet is a little worn but dont say you have the best carpet at home.. And if the room is exaggerated why not tell the front desk before you settle in the room? come on people if you just stay go to hotels to complain why not just stay at home or in your car?

My family (self, husband, 12yoa daughter, 2.5yoa son, 9mo son) stayed here as a quick rest stop on our way back to Colorado after a vacation into New Mexico. We've always had excellent experiences at Econo Lodges, so we were expecting a similar night. We couldn't have been more disappointed!

First, the small stuff:
- There isn't enough parking for check-in
- The building only has 2 entrances - the front doors, and a door at the rear of the building, 30 rooms length away from the front
- NO ELEVATOR! It's only 2 floors, but carrying 60lbs worth of sleeping babies and all our belongings up to the room was a chore. Especially since our room was exactly halfway down the hotel.

And then the bigger stuff:
- The carpet in the room had brown, sticky stuff ground in
- The beds don't have the kick plates - just a metal bed frame with 1x4 boards to help support the mattress. And they definitely haven't been vacuumed under in a LONG time
- We discovered the next morning, while digging under the beds to retrieve toys, that one of the bedspreads hadn't been washed - it had a sticky substance, possibly grape jelly, smeared all over the bottom. Ick. And my children had been sleeping in that bed!
- The shower curtain, which was dingy and obviously quite used, sucked in while the shower was going, so you were wrapped in a wet, sticky curtain that has touched untold numbers of other peoples' butts while trying to get clean
- we were so grossed out by the cleanliness of the room that we didn't even try the breakfast

And finally - a couple of good things:
- my husband and daughter did go use the pool - they said it wasn't anything special, but it wasn't terrifying, either
- the room was quiet - we all got a decent night's sleep
- the blackout curtains worked really well - my infant even slept until 8am!

It was okay for a quick night's sleep, but I'm very, very glad we weren't planning on using it as a base for a trip to Santa Fe. I couldn't set my 9mo crawler/creeper on the floor, because there were too many places that a vaccuum doesn't easily reach that had bits of stuff stuck to the carpet, and babies are way too likely to pick anything off the carpet and eat it.

The rooms are clean, if a bit worn. There was a large family that checked in right after me, so I was hesitant about being on the same side with them because of noise. No worries, though. I never heard any loud noises or even the TV! Nice and quiet! Plenty of hot water for the shower, and good pressure, too.
Free breakfast consists of pastries, cereal, coffee, juice, and make your own waffle.
All in all, a pretty good deal.

Room Tip: Plan ahead, book by internet, keep receipts/pts
