I went to the Charles Motel for much needed relaxation and a break from the daily grind. I heard they had the hot mineral water tubs and with my muscles in knots this was icing on the cake. I don't really care for chain motels and lack of character. I only stay at those when nothing to my preference is...

We spent two nights here in January and had a marvelous time. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's a funky place, with lots of character, so don't expect a luxury spa treatment. But it's cozy and inviting, so if you just need a place to relax and soak, this is a wonderful choice. The staff were helpful in recommending...

When I went into the Charles for a soak, the friendly man at the reception desk remembered me, even though I hadn't been in for over five months! He gave me a fluffy towel, and I was on my way to the back for my soak. The water was hot and wonderful, as always. After an hour in that water,...

Met by a really friendly receptionist on arrival. Big room with good aircon and a huge comfortable bed. Carpet was a bit dated, but who cares. Walk-in wardrobe, ironing facilities, full kitchen, bathroom with powerful shower and big fluffy towels. And all for under 40 quid!!

My partner and I came to NM to get married and decided to drive up to Truth or Consequences to try out the hot springs. We stopped at Charles!! CJ was just awesome!! He was very professional, and very knowledgeable about the area and shared lots of info with us. We did the hour long soak on the roof top!!...

I am a world traveler. Having been a regular guest at the Charles Hotel and Spa for seven years, I would like to say that compared to all the places I have stayed, this is by far the most comfortable and accommodating place I have ever visited. This is not a cookie-cutter, plastic, or flamboyant southwestern-style hotel. The proprietor Kathy...

For only $5, you can soak indoors for an hour in hot hot water, and you get a towel! The staff is very friendly and take pride in the fact that all tubs are cleaned between soaks. The water is very hot and wonderful. Men and women are in separate parts of the building. Each tub is in its own...

The rooms are not nice but they are clean. We would probably go back but the beds are really bad. The baths are great and the folks that run the place are great. The price is good but, again, the nights sleep was miserable for all 3 of us.

I loved it here and plan to stay again on my next trip to T or C. It is very reasonably priced, clean, quiet and the management, Kathy, is very attentive and personable. It is conveniently located and has nice views of Turtleback Mountain.

Nostalgic and funky. It is a must stay at place. No two rooms are a like. There is no other place in town that offers so much for your money and it has Kathy to boot. Hot spring bath, body wraps, and massages all in one sitting.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Charles is made up of two historical buildings. The Spa building, constructed in the late 1940s, and The Charles Apartments, built in the early ‘30s, sit side-by-side on Broadway, awaiting the arrival of guests who venture to the southwest for a relaxing getaway, or on a quest for healing, or even who "just had to stop in a town called Truth or Consequences." The real joy of the Charles Spa and Motel lies in the mineral-rich water that flows from the ground beneath the facility, arriving in the Charles’ baths at a piping 112 degrees Fahrenheit. This incredible water has been used in healing for centuries and is also available in our private outdoor Jacuzzis. A nice hot bath is perfect prior to an in-house massage which is available by appointment. ... more   less
