“Great place to stay in T or C”
5 of 5 bubbles 4.22.2017

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 across on our recent road trip through Southwestern states. Val was a great help with her knowledge of local restaurants and side-trips to take. (If you have the time, try to make it to Chloride: it's a nice drive, and the old General Store is like taking a trip back in time.) Her easy-going, friendly manner further helped to make the stay enjoyable.

“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.


Great Hot Springs and very affordable
