Reserve NM has had its share of hard-luck with its primary employer (a lumber mill) closing in the late 20th century, and nothing to replace it but occasional tourists and hunters. Jenn and her husband have run The Hidden Springs, (and adjoining Adobe Restaurant - 5 STARS!) for some 10 years I understand. Yes, from the exterior the motel looks like an ugly strip motel and that's what it was before -- but the wind blows constantly in this country and the high desert grit sand-blasts the exterior of everything. Inside, however, the rooms and linens are clean, modernized with laminate flooring, functioning refrigerators and microwaves, and the water is hot (after a while, unfortunately). Each room is decorated differently and the beds are far better than merely functional. If you're ready for a stop The Hidden Springs is recommended.
