Among the budget-minded properties in town, this well-maintained adobe-style hotel with a fun retro sign out front and the vibe of an old-school motel is a real gem. The complex comprises several buildings—plus a heated seasonal pool and year-round hot tub—on a peaceful three-acre spread several blocks north of the plaza. Rooms in the West Building, constructed in the '80s, are a bit more spacious, and some have kiva-style fireplaces. But the original building, a vintage
1940's motor lodge, has more character, with its thick adobe walls and viga ceilings.
