I have stayed at plenty of hotels in New Mexico on business trips and this hotel is just average for nm. The place is kind of sketchy and made me nervous. The room was very clean except the mattress had yellow spots.. The wifi only worked when I placed my phone in the window. Paid $187 to stay for a... More

Best value and the clean rooms are charming. These owners are the nicest people who care about the guests. I was allowed to look at several rooms before deciding. I will definately be back. Some rooms include carports. They all have a microwave and a minifridge.

Charming & 50's style, BUT...pulling sheets back on the bed to find long black hairs on pillows & sheets...disgusting & inexcusable! Will never return. Asked for 3 beds [advertised on their website], but told didn't have it. However, no one else was there. Good heater. Very hot water, but low pressure.

Whole room needed a good cleaning (Blood stain on pillow - gross) Possibly gang related or at least suspicious looking young men outside the next morning. GOOD: Price was cheap. Good lighting in parking lot I've been there before a... More

We were just stopping for the night. I wanted a clean place to sleep. I slept, all right, but the great beds that other reviews talk about must have gotten another room! Worn out bed, for sure. And clean doesn't describe this, for sure. A previous guest had written a note on the mirror about hair on the walls of... More

I travel alot this trip was unexpected so my budget was tight. Normally I stay at a Marriott so figured I'd use my points to save, however, no Marriott within three hours of here. The Colt charged me $90 for two nights. Loved the price but I was nervous. The room was clean and bigger than I'd expected. Fridge was... More

I used the Expedia site and it says "PETS ACCEPTED" they charged me and extra $200 for my dog. The office had a nasty smell. The room smelled musty. I had to park my car by my window, because of some of the people there. I thought about leaving a 10pm for another Motel, I should have. NEVER AGAIN .....I... More

The INSIDE of the room was clean. The outside was a different story....it consists of potholed and worn-out asphalt some over-grown weeds and a paint job done about 20 years ago. The rooms are very small, the amenities are bare (one bar of soap and some thin towels), the shower would only shoot out hot water (better than cold but... More
