“Fantastic Value in T or C”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

When visiting Truth or Consequences, the temptation is to stay at a (much more expensive) hotel that has its own hot springs. But here's the big secret: the owner of the Desert View purchases vouchers for the best hot springs in town, the RiverBend, and sells them to his guests at cost. Our family stayed at the Desert View--a clean, organized, friendly, no frills motel--and purchased vouchers for a private pool at the RiverBend. If you're made out of money, stay at the RiverBend, too--but if you're on a budget, this is definitely the way to go. (And yes, there is a nice view from the Desert View Inn). Recommended!

What a deal! Great room with personality, enjoyed the recliner, tv had lots of channels, had a
Microwave and fridge, and the bed was very comfortable. Our hosts-Hans and "Mom"- were very personable and we really enjoyed visiting with them. Skip the box hotels and stay here. Great Mexican food at Carmen's down the road. We will be back!

What a bargain! Firm mattress, soft pillows and a good night's rest for a reasonable price. A very clean room, great Internet service (a must for me), and good coffee in the morning. Jovial Innkeeper from England is gracious, helpful and friendly and took care of my needs. His restaurant recommendation, the Pacific Grill, was excellent (my relatives who live in the area later told me this was the best place in town). I was in the area for a funeral and my other out-of-town relatives stayed in a nearby chain hotel: they complained their rooms were not comfortable and they didn't sleep well. They were envious of me because I got a great little motel for much less than they paid.

As the night was falling, I thought it wouldn't be wise to take the 2 hour+ drive to Silver city on a frozen mountain road, so I decided to stop in Truth or consequences. Several of the motels seem to be run by the same owner. Anyway, I chose The Desert view inn because of the view. It was Ok. Clean, spacy rooms, with fridge and microwave. The night was quiet, in spite of the nearby road. No breakfast, but for the price (around 30$), it was pretty good value.

If you are looking for a clean and value priced motel in ToC, the DV works! Great location, with several restaurants in walking distance. The rooms are older but clean and in good shape. Parking is very easy and as the property sits on the hill out of town there is a decent view.

I've stayed here in Nov the last 3 years, riding motorcycles in the desert around TorC, Hans is a great host, room number 5 has been my favorite so far. Hans is always quick to help us when we need info or materials to fix out dirt bikes. Always a pleasure to stay here.
