“Do not stay here.”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

We only went here because our friend recommended it because she said you could soak in a hot tub on the roof. I had visions, and had psyched the kids up for, lounging in said hot tub and star gazing, as this town would be a prime location for it. We arrived just before 9pm and were told it was too late to go in the roof hot tub!! It was not even completely dark yet!! She said we could use it starting at 8am next day, but it was near 100 degrees then, and we planned on being gone then. She said it was lucky we arrived when we did because she leaves at 9, and made it sound like she was doing us a favor!

I don't know when my friend stayed, but I am guessing it was decades ago. My kids refused to shower there. It was extremely outdated and no Internet or phone service. I would never stay again.

We are sorry if your friend misrepresented us to you. We have internet in all of our rooms. We allow people to soak in the hot tub by appointment only as it is very popular. We are located in the historical downtown district and our building is registered as a historical building, we include this in our advertising. Unfortunately we can not always live up to peoples "visions".

Great hometown older apartment type rooms. Jacuzzi on the roof was great with small extra charge. Mineral Bath free with room although separate by sexes which allows for a great soak. This will be a monthly visit.

I called last minute to see what was available for me and my dog. Called- The Charles- first and visited with a friendly staff member learning there were two rooms available for me and my four-legged companion. Very inexpensive; stayed a couple nights. Clean room, with small fridge, microwave, shower/tub, queen bed, comfy chair, and cable. Nice grocery store across street and eateries within walking distance. Free soak with room in private tubs that tall people can stretch out in and relax in the mineral water. Like the lobby area/music and available reflexologist. This is no frills accomodation that I was okay with knowing my dog wouldn't notice. One bathroom light fixture was missing its cover leaving the bulb exposed which seemed unnecessary as that would be an easy fix.
Is nice to know this place is available when just wanting to get away solo to soak in natural mineral water without spending much to sleep. May try other establishments during future trips just for fun but will spend more for superior accomodations.

we got one of the kitchenette suites; old stuff but comfortable enough and clean. it had a tub in the bathroom with some pretty funky tile work but it turned out we didn't use it because we used the bath house instead with very hot water. there's also a shower in the bath house; pleasant native american music in the background. various perennials outside the room and some fruit trees which were flowering at the time. the staff were all quite friendly. also close to bosque del apache if you're a bird watcher.

Room Tip: we got #12 with kitchenette, pretty much in the middle of the place.

The price was very reasonable but I wasn't that much charmed with the place. No wifi in the rooms, and the private hot tubs were just ok (not to mention that when I went in for my free hour there was this woman with these two very small children making a whole lot of noise!)
The room in itself was pretty nice, and the old stove/heater was a trip.
The staff is pretty nice but not very conversational.
Besides that the location is good, right on main street, with a lot of shops and nice places to eat around :-)
All in all an ok stay :-)

I paid $75 for a upstairs bedroom suite over looking the chihuahuan sky. I could not figure out how to plug the hot tub on top of the roof. I figured it out and had a good time in spite of the wish i had gotten a room at the las palomas. I'm not cripple minded, but if you're doing the T or C thing, the las palomas is cozy, and free to frequent the hot springs.

Room Tip: i had #18 and after 9pm had the hottub with the black hole drainage fixed. when in-between NM go fo...

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
