8/10 Very good

It’s fine for visiting Cumbres and Toltec Railroad. Clean & basic priced right Motel. The surrounding area is beautiful and good for fly fishing / hunting. Outlaw, Local and Boxcar are great places to eat.

Overall ok for an older motel
Didn’t realize maid service was by request only. Shower had very low pressure. Overall it was ok for an older motel.

10/10 Exceptional

The rooms is spacious and the bed comfortable. Very close to the rail yard too. Not much to choose from in terms of restaurants in Chama, so would recommend to plan ahead for meals. We did eat at a new place, Outlaws, and it was delicious— highly recommend. (Wanted to eat at Fosters and it was closed while we were there). Great place to stay if in Chama
