This is a nice and clean place to stay with a, beautiful view of the mountains. I love being in the mountains! Its a bit older, but they take good care of the place. My family and I would stay again. Internet access was OK

You can tell this motel has aged a bit but it was very clean. The wifi worked 75% of the time. The entire room was furnished. Plenty of space. The bathroom kitchen living room and bedroom are all separate so there is plenty of room. Able to park right outside my door! Beautiful mountain views right from the window. Able... More

The family that owns the motel are very friendly. We enjoyed our stay and will stay there again. Enjoyed having a refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishes and coffee pot. They gave us the room with a spot next to it for our boat without us even asking.

If your looking for a place to walk out the front door and see the lake and grab your rod and go then this is one of the 2 places I would stay if I were you. (After staying up here close to the water you couldn't pay me to go rent one of the many dime a dozen hotels... More

We've stayed here for the winter. The owner is a delightful woman, a very hardworking mormon lady who has taken good care of us. The motel is close to the lake for weekend fishermen, but a lot of the people who stay here are nurses from the VA hospital or families visiting their relatives. Nice and quiet, worth every penny.

This used to be a nice hotel but has fallen on hard times. Instead of catering to weekend lake-people it has turned into a flophouse for illegal aliens and alcoholics. You will pay 100 a night while they pay 10. The carpet, furniture and linens are several years old. Refridgerator door wouldnt shut. Bugs everywhere. AC is poor. Listened to... More

If you're looking to be pampered with room service and wait-staff, then this isn't for you. But if you're looking for some place comfortable to kick-back after a day on the lake it's great. You have your own kitchen, complete with stove, microwave, refrigerator (stocked with basic kitchenware), so if you're hungry at midnight, all you need to do is... More

If you are more fond of snotty impersonal service this is not the hotel for you. The owners are very friendly and more than willing to make sure our stay was comfortable. They even went so far as to recomend places to fish and alternative activities for the day. This motel is not the Ritz it has an at home... More

Think of Gilligan's Island, not a single luxury. No phone, no internet- despite it being advertised as being availible. The rooms face west so the room heats up but they didn't have the "swamp" coolers repaired so the rooms get up to around 90 degrees in the afternoon. And since the wind in T or C and Elephant Butte generally... More
