2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We chose to stay here for our first overnight in Clayton, partially based on previous reviews. Staff there was very friendly and helpful. I asked for a quiet room with two queen beds and room 219 was exactly what I requested. Southwestern decor was quite attractive, and the room was very comfortable. Nice touch was seating for two with a little table at the side of the room. The sink was separate from the toilet and shower, and this is a nice feature. Having a bench for luggage was also a nice touch. We were able to chill our bottle of wine in the small fridge. Beds were quite comfortable, and extra pillows were very good. I had no difficulty with the WiFi in the room so access to my IPad was easy. The heater was a bit noisy, but we were pleased overall. It was possible to hear the trains rumble through town, but that did not really disturb our sleep. Their breakfast included fresh scrambled eggs, sausage, grits, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, etc. Nice touch was salsa and jalapeños. The coffee could have been hotter, but the food choices were varied enough to please anyone.

We are so impressed with Kokopelli BW that we make a point to stay there when we are going through Clayton, NM. The rooms are clean and roomy. We travel with a pet and they are very accommodating in that respect. The pet park is very nice and handy. The breakfast was great. Will continue to stay there any time we are in the area.

Easy check-in. Staff helpful. Good breakfast with attentive attendant. Bed was ok and room was clean with plenty of towels for two of us. Not much to do in Clayton NM but staff helped with where to eat at night.

We have stayed here many times when traveling between Colorado and Texas. Staff is very friendly and great. Love that it is pet friendly although we didn't have pets this time. Breakfast is simple but good.

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and the service is ALWAYS top-notch. The breakfast buffet is outstanding. Don't get me started on their Wi-Fi! To put it nicely, it really doesn't exist! Thank goodness we have mobile hot spots with our cellular plan, or we'd still be looking for an Internet connection.

This is an extremely clean and wonderful hotel. The breakfast was amazing! Great place to stay!!!! The hotel is dog friendly. Has a beautiful park to Walk dog in. Parking for oversized trailers. I would stay here time and time again. The owners should be proud of how clean this hotel is.

The check-in staff was very pleasant. The cleanliness of the room was marginal - didn't want to walk on the carpeting barefoot. Bed was just fine. Pillows weren't my favorite - this could be personal preference. Breakfast was inferior. Breakfast staff needs to learn more customer service skills. For the price of the room, we most likely will not stay there again. Next night was spent in another hotel that cost 1/3rd less and was much more to our standards. Even though a truck stop was directly across the street, thankfully we did not hear the truck traffic during the night.

I will stay here anytime I'm in the area / Breakfast was the best i've had at a best western /rooms were clean and comfortable / staff was super friendly / I was traveling through NM with my mother and daughter so we had two rooms / we all agreed this was the best hotel we had stayed at during the entire trip. So much so we stay in here again on our way back.

This hotel was nice and clean. Not very much outside noise but some. Big enough for two people. Bath tub was very slippery so it needs a rubber mat. Breakfast was very good and had a TV to keep up with the news and weather for the day. Check in and out was very good as well. Our room was across the street , but short walk to breakfast area. Overall everything was good for us.

Our family of 5 were traveling to Red River and decided to stop for the night. We were very pleasantly suprised by this little motel. The employees were friendly, the room was great, and breakfast was plentiful. Thank you for the great stay!
