Charles Motel and Hot Springs Spa

Traveller (19)
Room & Suite (5)
Pool & Beach (1)


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.

We went to the Charles Motel for a much needed break. We have been here many times before. All in all this is my current favorite getaway place. The staff is really friendly, and I haven't found any hidden surprises with billing. Its quiet. I love the little shop in the lobby.

Pleasant enough, the room was large and has a full kitchen, the shower was good and the bed comfortable. The problem is that its 2017 and people require good internet access, for business and to keep in contact with family when a long way from home. i am not saying it was slow,

I will give a short back story...a decade ago I lived in El Paso & came to T or C almost every weekend for a year. I've stayed in the Sierra Grand several times (very nice) but, there's something about the Charles Motel. Well, what I liked was the kitchen in the room and the

Your best bet may be to call and ask them directly about their pet policy. The staff is super friendly and I'm sure will be happy to answer any questions.
