I stayed a week at the Charles Motel and Bath House. Besides the well-kept ambiance of
the buildings and baths, I had a fine kitchen, equipped with new stove, fridge, microwave.
There was a stainless steel sink and plenty of hot water. Very nice for me, who has been
struggling with maintaining a special diet due to onset of adult allergies. Across the street is a local grocery store with everything a basic store should have and even some organic
food items, grains and canned goods. This made my stay both easy and pleasant.
The owner delights in maintaining the original baths, built in 1939. They are deep pink-tiled tubs that fill in moments from a gushing artesian well of mineral waters.
It was so nice to sink into one of these baths around 7 or 8 in the evening. I could feel
the tension drain out of my body. And then go a hundred feet to my perfectly fine bed
with a cup of tea made in my little kitchen.
Good price. Very easy going helpful employees. In front of my door was a flowering tree. It is on the main city street but that becomes almost totally empty after 10 PM and I slept well and felt very much at home.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Charles is made up of two historical buildings. The Spa building, constructed in the late 1940s, and The Charles Apartments, built in the early ‘30s, sit side-by-side on Broadway, awaiting the arrival of guests who venture to the southwest for a relaxing getaway, or on a quest for healing, or even who "just had to stop in a town called Truth or Consequences." The real joy of the Charles Spa and Motel lies in the mineral-rich water that flows from the ground beneath the facility, arriving in the Charles’ baths at a piping 112 degrees Fahrenheit. This incredible water has been used in healing for centuries and is also available in our private outdoor Jacuzzis. A nice hot bath is perfect prior to an in-house massage which is available by appointment. ... more less
