“Once great, now average”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We have been staying here regularly for many years. Our last visit was a disappointment; we sensed something was different, and learned that Ted Turner had bought the hotel recently. What used to be a unique place Turner has turned into a generic hotel: the fine art (works by Delmas Howe and others) has disappeared to be replaced by generic cowboy pictures; the long-time staff has fled; the soak that comes with your room has been reduced from one hour to 30 minutes; the room furniture is now cowboy stuff; and the breakfast, while similar, is not of the same quality. What was once a great hotel, one of the best in TorC, is sliding toward mediocrity and has lost the diversity that once made it unique. It is not bad, just average.

Room Tip: Upstairs back is best. Upstairs front has a common balcony that kids run up and down, and downstair...

Sierra Grande is easy to locate in T or C, NM, and is near an abundance of eateries and activities. You will be pleasantly surprised by your choice of room rates.
Daily complimentary breakfast is provided. Deliciously fresh scones, muffins, toasts, yogurts, granola, fruits and beverages. Robes and slippers (which are provided) are perfectly acceptable at breakfast, seriously. It's all about relaxing, remember.
We had a nightly hot springs soak, complimentary with each night's stay and they are incredible. You are on a slower pace, but not the staff. The staff is friendly and attentive. Soaks are scheduled and they are ready on time, every time. The spa is peaceful and quiet. The couple’s massage was truly relaxing, so definitely try a spa treatment.
There are many outdoor activities in and out of town. In town we did the 3 mile Healing Waters Trail a few times, which turned out to be a great outdoors workout. Do the trail or hit the new gym. You'll find a couple of museums along the way if you do the trail, so you'll have to decide if you want to take the time to check them out or continue on the trail. We'll have to make another trip and make time for the museums. This trip we toured Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge, which is about 1hr 15min away in San Antonio; great bird watching and hiking. Also in San Antonio is Buckhorn Tavern and Owl Bar & Cafe; try the Green Chile Cheese Burger at both and judge for yourself. We visited the Very Large Array (VLA) that is about 50 miles west of Socorro. The VLA was in the A configuration during our trip, not as impressive from a photo standpoint, but a totally impressive radio telescope. We took a bus tour with Follow The Sun Tours and visited Spaceport America. Our tour bus driver, Gary impressed us with his knowledge of the area. Spaceport America is just beyond Ted Turner's Armendaris Ranch property, and has been uniquely designed. You'll have to see it to believe it.
Back at Sierra Grande, the lobby is beautifully decorated and thoroughly inviting. You'll want to sit down and relax; there are truffles on the counter ($3 ea) and you'll love them, jewelry by Me Jane in a showcase is beautifully crafted, so shop there or walk a couple blocks to the shop at Dust & Glitter, and view the night sky from the outdoor hot springs soaking tub. In fact, try the outdoor tub, as well as the indoor tub in the Spirit room. Open the French doors that lead outside and enjoy the fragrance of the flowers that comes in with the breeze. Ahhhhhh.

Room Tip: Our second floor room faced north overlooking the beautifully landscaped rear of the property. Great...

What a find! We loved Sierra a Grand Lodge. Wonderful staff, clean room, an amazing hot springs soak in the evening and another in the morning included in your room rate. It was a perfect stop on our way home to CO. Will make it a regular stop from now on. Thanks Sierra Grande, we love you!

If you a planning a trip to the Southwest, try to include several days to visit Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. One of the main reasons is to stay at the remarkable hotel, the Sierra Lodge. From the moment you walk in, you feel pampered. All details and service are top notch. Beautiful rooms with comfy beds and a huge bathtub. The price of your room, which I found quite reasonable, you get many delightful perks. Two private soaks, one in the morning the other in the evening, in either an outdoor or indoor mineral spring. It is such a relaxing experience. Ice water, towels.In your room they provide comfy robes which you practically live in. During the day they offer coffee, teas, fruit that you can enjoy on their long patio. You are also offered a complimentary breakfast. The front desk employees are so gentle and kind. They are open to helping you with any requests. One can also book messages and facials. The quirky, yet interesting town is worth poking around. There is a great museum, antique and re- sale shops along with art galleries, coffee shops and good restaurants. It is a slow paced town and at times you feel like you are in the Twilight Zone. The locals are very friendly. Definitely worth the trip. Loved it!

We got one of the packages, and it was great. So relaxing, the spa services were wonderful, the breakfast choice was limited, but very nice with amazing scones. T or C is a very small town, but we found some very nice choices for dinner, would especially recommend the Asian Fusion place that is within walking distance. Everyone working at the hotel was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were not large, but very charming and the bathtub was great. We will definitely return.

Relax and shed all that stress at a very classy little hotel in the wonderful town of Truth or Consequences. My girlfriend and I spent two nights in T or C one of which was the Sierra Grande. Every member of the staff was friendly and made sure our experience was relaxing. The place is spotless and the rooms are very well furnished. Ours had a nice big "ol' tub in it. We took two private hot baths in the inside rooms and they were great. By the time the attendant knocked on the door, we were ready to get out. I suspect we went a little longer than we were supposed to but nobody said a word. It has a nice breakfast and good coffee all day long. Big city accommodations in the wonderful small town of T or C. As good as anything in Santa Fe and the people are much friendlier.
