The Rocket was all that we hoped for in quaint Truth or Consequences. We had a most comfortable stay starting with a pleasant and friendly introduction by the owners, Cidney and Val. Val gave us a tour of the property and great recommendations for local eateries. Close proximity to various hot springs, which drew us to T or C. On...

The Rocket is a real jewel of a place and benefits us all due to the owner, Val. It is obvious she has put her heart into this property since she bought it and redid all of the rooms, bathrooms and deserty garden area. We arrived and she gave us an overview of the area, and the restaurants as that...

I felt well cared for by the owner. Though this property doesn't have a hot springs, it offers discount tickets. Rooms have fridge, microwave and large clean sets. The decor is out of the Jetsons. This hotel is a labor of love. I'll be back.

As we were traveling through New Mexico on our way to Tucson, Az we decided we better stop and spend the night at a motel. My daughter found Rocket Inn online and thought I would like it because of its quaintness. She was right and after working in the Hospitality industry for 25+ years I'm a little particular where I...

I stayed here after my original motel couldn't fulfil my reservation - and what a bonus that turned out to be! The Rocket Inn is a small motor court on the main drag through TorC, yet surprisingly quiet. The rooms are very nicely furnished, the bed very comfortable and my room had good TV and wifi reception. Val, one of...

I stayed at the Rocket Inn for a night on a long southwestern road trip and couldn't have lucked out more.

I've stayed at the Rocket Inn at least half a dozen times in the last few years. Nice, friendly, helpful owners, good with local restaurant recommendations and more. Nice remodeled clean rooms, all non-smoking. Pretty good coffee in the mornings. Discounted tickets available to one of the local (and very close nearby) hot springs. And if you're lucky, you'll get...
