Excellent place to stay, reasonably priced and it was nice to take a break from the hotel chains on our road trip and stay here. Enjoyed the coupon I received for my riverbend soak and came back to enjoy the evening and my morning coffee in their lovely courtyard. Great little giftshop in the office! Thank you!

Care was taken w the renovations. A small retro kind of motel. Val tries really hard. She had great dinner recommendations. We enjoyed our stay and liked biking everywhere. Nice to have $2 off of the riverbend soak. I recommend the whole T&C experience.

We only stayed one night at The Rocket Inn, but it was exactly what you need in a motel. Very clean, quiet, great price. Newly renovated and you can tell it's been a labour of love. Walkable to the downtown area. If you're traveling through Truth or Consequences, definitely make this your stay over any chain hotel

We stayed for two nights and slept wonderfully. The owners did a wonderful job rehabing the place. It is conveniently located. The owners are very nice people and a wealth of information on the area. All in all a very good and enjoyable visit.

The owner, Val is a great ambassador for the town and a wealth of information on places to visit. We took her advise on a couple of things to do in the surrounding area and it made our...

We stayed here for two nights and can definitely recommend it. The Rocket Inn is newly renovated, clean rooms, good beds, good location. It's a small, quiet place with some very nice personal touches inspired by its owner, Val. The breakfast offered is basic but good. The Inn is very reasonably priced, so its value-for-money was the best we came...

The owner here is really nice, tries very hard and provides great information. She fixed up the property herself and did some great landscaping. Its a good clean place with a good location in Truth or Consequences.

We stayed here one night on our trip thru southern NM. They've done a nice job of renovation; much less expensive than any of the chain motels and a great deal more charm. Friendly service. We would definitely stay here again.

We spent one night here while on a road trip through the Southwest. Found the hotel clean & comfortable. Rooms have been renovated by the owner. The motel is pet friendly and the staff was helpful and accommodating.

We spent only one night while passsing through T or C but we found the Rocket Inn to be comfortable with recently restored rooms in a mid century building. As such the rooms are not large but certainly sufficient for two. Friendly staff eager to share information on local attractions. Small continental breakfast offered. Fridge and microwave in room. Some...
