          Very nice, clean motel. Not the most plush, but clean, comfortable, homey, and functional. Felt like I was staying at Aunt June's place rather than a motel. Obviously locally owned and operated. Restaurants in the area.

          We stay here every time we are traveling through Chama. The rooms are nothing fancy, but they are clean and comfortable. It's right along the river and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice price too!

          We don't have cabins, Betty. Sounds like it was the Little Creel Lodge, Spruce Lodge or Elk Horn Lodge. I hope this helps.
