“Hard working people provide a good night in a hard-luck town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

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.

Room Tip: All are quiet at night -- center rooms are probably closer to the hot water heater -- ask to look.

We were afraid we were not going to find a motel and would have to drive over 100 more miles, so were hoping this inn would be okay. What a surprise. The room was lovely and as nice as any bed and breakfast we had stayed in. I just loved the decor, and everything was fresh and clean. We had a great nights sleep. The cafe was another pleasant surprise. What wonderful, healthy, and delicious food. Wish we could have stayed longer to try more dishes. We enjoyed visiting with everyone there. Very helpful and friendly.
Thank you so much for being there.

You check in at the Adobe restaurant - had go in the side door - the front door was locked although people were eating there - took over 1/2 hour to check in with lots of apologies about the computer and several telephone calls were made. Finally got checked in and went to the room that the check-in person couldn't find (there are only 6 rooms) but, despite that we finally found the room (to be fair, this was the front desk person's first day on the job and she was trying very hard to get things right) - comfortable but aged - clean but needed to be 'perked' up. One dim reading lamp for 2 beds. Unscented soaps and shampoos - nice touch. Water pressure was good. Security lock (the kind that rotates out from the frame to meet with a stud on the door was broken and fell off. Not to worry - there's not likely a lot of B&E in Reserve. Room was quiet but cold and the heater is noisy - we turned it off and doubled up the duvets - great! The second 'B' in 'B&B' usually means 'Breakfast' but at Hidden Springs you'll need to pay - although there is a 10% discount for people using the first 'B" (Bed). The meal was good (try the pastries!) and the restaurant is heated by wood stoves and there is a solar photo-voltaic bank on the roof of the motel. Would I stay here again? - If I needed to stay in Reserve, I would.

We've stayed over on our Memorial Day bike trip for several years. Consistently a peaceful environment. They're very accommodating to your needs.

Room Tip: A larger suite is available.

OK, so it's not very luxurious. But that's not what we were looking for. We trusted our luck to find somewhere on the highway and came across the Hidden Inn, where we were given a fantastic dinner with the best mashed potato I've ever eaten. We were dying for a drink and were presented with mein host's private bottle of champagne! The bedrooms are perfectly ok and there's really not much of a view (parking lot). Next morning we had lovely homebaked muffins for breakfast and set off to the village of Reserve. It was different and special and very personal. Thanks!

We walked in the door and what a supprise sooooo.... cute and antique, CLEAN. Felt like home. The comforter was like down, the sheets had a fresh scent as if they blew in the wind all day. Great restraunt and people. The soap provided is all natural, YOU FEEL clean when your bath is over. ACCOMMIDATING, coffee and sweet rolls in the room
Great place to rest after a long day out in the woods.

I had two people who didn't know each other recommend this place to me and they were right. It's fantastic. The rooms are great, nothing fancy, but you have a nice porch and horses in a pasture right next door. The best thing is the cafe. You know it's good because all the locals go there. The biscuits and green chili gravy is one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. If you sit at the counter, you'll see a parade of fresh baked goods coming out of the kitchen.
Also, they don't mention it, but they have wifi.
