Desert View Inn
Reviewed 3 March 2014

My father and I stayed in the Inn after a recommendation from a local friend and we were totally thrilled. The owner, Hans, who checked us in was so friendly and accommodating. Our rooms were sparkling clean and very comfortable and quiet. All of the rooms have a beautiful view of Turtle Mountain. Best of all, hours after we checked out I realized I had forgotten my winer coat and favorite sweater in my room, so we called and spoke to Hans and he immediately offered to send them to us via priority mail. I would recommend this gem of an Inn to anyone looking for an extremely well-appointed and cozy experience in Truth or Consequences.

We read the reviews online but preferred to look at the actual motels for ourselves prior to booking a room, even if that meant losing out on our first or second choice since we would be arriving just prior to midnight, but we could & should have trusted TripAdvisor's reviewers. The rooms had been nicely upgraded and the gentleman who owns or at least runs the place was as accommodating as anyone I have ever had the pleasure of staying with. My wife and I already decided that we will plan around an extended stop there between now and the end of spring. We look forward to our return stay at the Desert View as well as some 1/2 price tickets to the local hot springs for a serious soak.

The Desert View Inn is just that: situated on a hill with a fine view of the city of Truth or Consequences. Hans and his delightful daughter, Felicia, have become our friends over the many months we have stayed there. The main reason we first took a room was because the rooms are cleaned (very well I might add) with vinegar and bleach instead of those horrible stinky chemicals. Being on Business I-25, it is very accessible and near the main attractions, restaurants and stores. TorC gets quiet after 8 pm, so the location is not noisy at night. We have tried numerous motels and Hans' Desert View Inn is our favorite. It is a very good value for the money.

Room Tip: All rooms have one or two queen beds and some have an additional single bed. Extra blankets and pill...

The hotel owner is an incredibly hospitable man, full of helpful advice concerning the local area. I enjoyed chatting with him--he could outdo any concierge at Disney World. The rooms are nice too! The service is great. I'd prefer to stay here than just about any hotel I've ever been to because of the hospitality and customer service.

Clean, inexpensive, and a great host - perfect place to base out of for a few days exploring the area.
I've been coming down for a number of years to ride offroad with friends, and was steered to the Desert View on the first trip. Never wanted to change places after that - Hans takes great care of the place and it's tough to beat for value and a cool vibe.
