This wonderful retreat is a welcome rest from the road. Blissful to sample the hot springs. It was far beyond what we expected, and very affordable. The rooms are comfortable, and they offer a variety of prices and amenities. Guests of the lodge have free access to the public springs all day until 10 pm.
There is a mountain view from every private rock tub on the river's edge, and from the public tubs as well. They offer massage on premises. The other guests are very relaxed in such a natural, peaceful environment.
This is unbranded, no-frills motel probably best used as a stop-over while on the way to somewhere else. However, that describes many of the motels in Las Cruces, so you might as well go cheap.
The room and facilities are similar to that of a Super 8 or Motel 6, but slightly older. There is a pool, but it was cold and rainy when I was here, so I had no chance to use it.
As I recall, I paid about $35 for two twins.
Good location along a predominately hotel strip in southern Las Cruces
Las Cruces certainly has its share of brand-name motels-- but then Las Cruces has its share of brand-name everything. (Like living in the world's largest Wal-Mart.)
Fortunately, there is a cure for Las Cruces-- the nearby town/suburb of Mesilla (sometimes called Old Mesilla).
One of the things that makes Mesilla great is the Meson de Mesilla, a "boutique" inn with 15 rooms. The price is comparable to the corporate motels in the area, but is quieter, more individual, and has an excellent restaurant.
Rooms start at $65 including full breakfast.
A full breakfast is served to you each day (NOT a continental breakfast or buffet-- you'll order from a menu and be served by a waiter) and is included in the price of your lodging.
Try to get a table with a view of the wall outside. There is a resident roadrunner who hangs out there and he's fun to watch.
