“Fourth Stay at Rocket Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2015

"We love this place! As before, the room was extremely clean, and charming. Also, the rooms have a small refrigerator making it handy for leftovers. Sydney, motel owner, was very sweet and informative about local restaurants. The motel is very conveniently located to both ends of town. We will be back."

“Cleanest, quietest, coolest and cutest!”
5 of 5 stars Trip Advisor

I have stayed and a lot of small motels in my life, however, the Rocket Inn is by far the cleanest and cutest. I have stayed there several times now, and it is the only motel I will stay in when I visit the area.

CLEANEST: It has come such a long way since it was the Red Haven Inn. The new owners have pretty much gutted the place and made everything fresh and new. The floors look like wood but they are the cleanest I have ever seen in a motel. So clean you can eat off the floor! Not only is it clean, they must use environmentally kind cleaning supplies.

“Say hi to Val and Cydney, they are great hostess's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2015

We stayed for two nights at the Rocket Inn and would book there again if we were in the area. What you notice first is the interesting and immaculately clean grounds, then you look around and the bright and cheerful exterior just begs you to smile and relax. We stayed in one of the older rooms and were very pleased with the cleanliness and the instant comfort. Our hosts, Val and Cydney were very helpful and super friendly showing us the different places to visit while in the area. One night we sat outside in the common area and visited with some of the other guests staying at the inn. This was a nice change from the typical motel atmosphere. There is a reason the Rocket Inn was the only motel with NO Vacancy.

Great Hot Springs and very affordable

  • RiverBend

From the by Ruanna Waldrum:

"Since before recorded history, the therapeutic benefits of the hot springs in this area have drawn people here.
The hot thermal water flows out of a rift along the Rio Grande that appeared more than 50 million years ago. The rift uplifted Truth or Consequences’ landmark hill, and faults along the rift allow deep groundwater to flow freely to the surface without losing heat or minerals — producing pristine waters with temperatures ranging from 98 to 115 degrees, with trace elements of 38 different minerals. The pH of the water is 7, or neutral.

May Cure
“Whatever Ails You”
With almost 2,700 parts per million of assorted minerals, these thermal springs constitute some of the most heavily mineralized water in the United States. The continually flowing waters also have two important and unique features:
— The water has no unpleasant odor.
— The single largest ingredient in the water is chloride, a naturally occurring germ killer that sterilizes the skin and ensures the purity of the water.
Located in the downtown Hot Springs Bathhouse Historic and Commercial District, the spas and bathhouses of Truth or Consequences are central to its history. The region gained recognition as a health center at the turn of the century, and in the 1920s, ‘30s, and ‘40s motorists flocked to area resorts. [see a brochure for “Hot Springs New Mexico, City of Health”]
Some were prescribed the “21 day soak” regimen, said to cure “anything that ails you.” In a nutshell, the regimen is – soak in our hot springs once daily for 21 days, at around the same time each day, and spend as much time resting & recovering immediately afterward as you taking the waters.
Today, the charmingly restored hotels, motels, RV parks, and spas reflect this history and offer travelers a wide range of accommodations that retain the flavor of this bygone era, along with healing treatments including massage, reflexology, mud wraps, reiki, and more.
Visitors seeking in-room private baths will find several to choose from, and most of the baths are open to walk-ins who can pay to soak by the half hour or hour."
