The owners were nice but don't keep regular hours. I got room with two queen beds, there were three of us staying - we got one washcloth. The WIFI didn't work, one channel on the TV, the bathroom vent didn't work, the bathroom sink drained very slow, one pillow smelled like dirty hair, I will bring a tent next time...

As other reviews have said, this is the best place to stay in Cuba. The other hotels don't even look open for the most part. The room was fine for a night stay complete with a microwave. My bad experience was the front desk not telling me it was ACROSS THE STREET (newer rooms are here), and I had no...

The Frontier motel is in a tiny, dusty town on the way to somewhere in New Mexico. Very affordable, dumpy, but very nice staff, clean rooms, a fine shower, and new towels. With not many other places to stay we feel fortunate to have landed here for the night.

We stayed across from the main motel in what looked like newly refurbished rooms. It was very comfortable, clean and everything functioned as it should. Had a small glitch with the TV but the owner fixed it immediately. Yes, they're still a little dated looking but that's the charm! Has a very homey feel to it and the owner wants...

The room was clean. The motel has to sides, one is across the street. We stayed on the north side in one with a kitchenette. I like the little patio with a grill. It was nice. The beds are average. Nothing special. The one issue I had was there were no plugs in the bathroom. I wasn't able to plug...

standard def TV; clean room with small fridge; large square shower and clean bed with acceptable mattress. There's a 24/7 gas station/convenience store across the street and a local restaurant two doors down. This is one of three motels in the town of Cuba, which sets at around 6900 fee - and you can't miss it as its the first...

Not the newest, but well maintained and clean. We wound up staying in the room for 36 hours straight when a virus from home caught up with us in Cuba. It was a bad experience for me in general, but I was glad I was in this room and not a tiny, noisy, freeway joint. I hope I can get...

Quiet and quaint. Small motel, but a lot of effort has been put into furnishings and decorations. No hot water that night but fine by the next morning. We will definitely stay here any time we are passing through.

If the mattresses had not had the springs up in my back all night long, it would have been ok for one night. We were in room 24. Even my husband who can sleep on anything at the drop of a hat could not sleep on it and he said the mattress made his back sore the next day. The...

This is probably the best hotel in Cuba, NM. But that is not saying much. First day I had a big black widow making his way to my room, so be advised don't put your boots outside your room, even though the checkin lady asks you too. Overpriced is all I can say, but you really have no choice if...
