Really convenient location, if you're visiting the sand dunes or the general area I highly recommend it! It's really well maintained, owners are passionate about keeping it clean and comfortable for their guests. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. When I'm back in the area I know where I'll be staying!

I stayed there with my family for a couple of nights in December last year. We loved the area around, especially Taos and Dunes. The place is very clean and comfortable. You don’t have to worry about bed bugs there. We had a really comfortable stay. We recommend it.

Spotless hotel near many good attractions and restaurants. You cannot go wrong no matter which room you get. It's very clean and comfortable. Some reviewers stated the hotel is overpriced, but I say it's worth it. As they say, "you get what you pay for" and this definitely holds true at the Fort Garland Motor Inn.

I stayed at the Ft.Garland Motor Inn a couple of times on business with other employees of my company. If you don't get to know Anna, you could take her the wrong way.

Our stay at the inn was very pleasant. We were there on July 9 (without reservations); saw the 2 places in town and opted to try this one. I'm quite certain we've never stayed anywhere that pride in ownership was more obvious! This was by far the cleanest room we've ever had. I don't believe there's a dust bunny in...

This Motor Inn is in a great location - just west of the intersection of Rt. 160 and if you head south, you're in Santa Fe! When I lived in Alamosa, I had no reason to stay here, but now living elsewhere and having something to do in Ft. Garland, I decided to give it a try. My AAA Tour...

This place was immaculate! The owner takes great pride in providing a very clean hotel for her guests. The beds were quite comfortable and it was conveniently located. There are a lot of bad reviews about the owner,,, I can see how these can come about. She has a very strong personality and I can see how people could find...

The room and hotel were very clean and located well. I have no complaints about that..if i had any complaints it would be the manner in which the owner talked to us and thenever ending notes and signs on walls about hotel regulations will question your smoking habits.

We were evacuated Thursday June 20, 2013 from the southfork Colorado area due to the massive wildfires. As we traveled out of the area at dark we looked for somewhere to stay.
