    Bad news: They were having "plumbing issues" at the opposite end of the building from our room, couldn't guarantee we wouldn't have a similar problem, couldn't get plumber there until Monday. Good news: they anticipated my needs, and called a nearby motel to save us a room. Since bathroom calamities in the middle of the night are NOT my idea of a fun time, we took the room at the nearby motel, and were pleased with our stay there. Kudos to Branding Iron Motel for ensuring we had an option.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    No breakfast is a bummer. On a cold morning to have to drive a mile up the road for a bite to eat is inconvenient and costly.

    Weekend in Chama

    Great area, nice room. Personnel were very nice. No microwave or refrigerator in the room. Noisy when room above is occupied. Quiet when adjacent rooms are occupied.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

    Blast from the past linoleum and decor but very clean, well-lit and clean. No complaints. It’s a throw-back!
