“Great place to Relax”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

This establishment has great people running it. I felt so welcomed like I never left home. The place itself is very clean and well maintained. Definitely recommend it to get away from city routine and enjoy country living. God bless you Joe and your family for taking care of us. Martin (aka chuck lol).

We loved our night at the Lake Roberts Motel. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a kitchen table, microwave, and fridge. We were just staying one night and wanted to be close to Gila Cliffs for a morning visit, but I could see this being a great multi-night base if you want to spend more time in this area. The owners were very warm and gracious, and made us feel welcome. The mountain location is quiet and relaxing, and a herd of deer wandered through the property in the evening. The only downside is we were there in the off-season, and there is no where to eat within at least 30 miles. Luckily we knew this ahead of time and brought some burritos and breakfast good from Silver City to prepare in our room. There is also a nice BBQ patio all ready for use if you bring your own supplies.

As other reviewers have noted, in this part of NM you do not have a lot out there to choose from. Fortunately the Lake Roberts motel is a great place to stay, regardless! The owners clearly love their job and do everything to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the little house-cabin rather than a regular room. Bathroom is beautifully remodeled. Nice kitchen. The cabin itself is cozy and beds are comfortable. Note that during the off season, there's really no place to buy groceries so the owners of the motel have stocked up on some basics in food and amenities that you can purchase at their office. Bonus: The Continental Divide trailhead is just a few miles back south along the highway.

Room Tip: For the tiny difference in price, you might as well spring for the cabin.

This motel has a very serene and quaint feel to it. It's owners are friendly and personable. If you're looking for a quiet spot far away in the mountains for relaxation, this would be a good choice. If you're just a tourist passing by, you might not appreciate the remoteness. That being said, that reflects only on the location, not the rooms or the service which are both good.

This was a wonderful place to stay the weekend with our family. The kitchenette was just the right size and there was a huge covered picnic area where we could have a family reunion where grills and tables were available for guests. The best part was the owners, so kind and gracious! We'll be back.

You do not have very much choice when it comes to finding lodging in this area, especially if you do not want to pay an arm and a leg. This little motel is charming and the new owners are very enthusiastic, friendly, ready to help, and best of all very well organized.
We had room #1 closest to the general fireplace outside. It was pretty chilly at night and it was great to have a fire going on outside. The owners had made the area very nice with lamps, seating and plenty of firewood. The owner (guy) is also a great story teller. I really wish it was not so cold that night so we could have listened to more of his very inspiring stories from the past.
We stayed two nights in a self-catering studio room and it was equipped with everything that you needed for a comfortable stay: plenty of kitchenware, a fridge, stove, microwave, etc. We also liked the cowboy decorations some of which actually belonged to the owner himself! There was also a small porch area in front of your room and a play area for children. The motel was very close to the road, but there was hardly any traffic on the road, so it was not a problem.
If you come there to stay for a long time, you need to bring everything you need. There is a small store close by, but it does not have very much. Besides the prices are off the roof! You cannot blame the store owner because he has to make a profit out of what he had to bring all the way over there.
We would have liked the beds to be a bit sturdier, but they were not terrible. The owners have been there less than a year and they were constantly improving the place. They were always asking if everything was ok and if they could do something to make our stay better. He even said, “come knock on the door at 3 a.m. if you have to”. Such nice dedicated people!
Make sure you ask him about his adventurers in life. Very interesting man indeed! I am sure the lady is too, but I did not have a chance to talk to her.

Before the large hotel chains, there were owner operated motels and hotels that gave you the sense of being in someone's extended home. I was directed to the Lake Roberts Motel last Fall, when needing to stay in the area. The couple who have purchased the motel and call it home have created a wonderful retreat to stay and explore the lake, to fish, hike, visit the Gila Cliff Dwellings and just relax. With just 1/2 dozen rooms and a small house for rent, even when full, it is still a peaceful retreat. The rooms are spotless, decorated with love in a southwest theme, and complete with small fridge and microwave. They have installed wifi and my room had a tv. I'm writing this from the little table in front of my room and watching a family of Mule Deer grazing across the road, as dozens of hummingbirds fight over the six or so feeders in front of the rooms. There is a barbecue for guests and a restaurant down the road.
My only hesitation in sharing this secret is that when I want to come back and stay for a week the next visit, it may be booked and full! This is what accommodations were like when I was a kid! No massages, no luxuries - just comfortable rooms, wonderful surroundings, abundant wildlife, friendly and dedicated owners, and beautiful night skies. Who could ask for more?!
