Pricy for the stay

I was not happy with the stay. The price I paid was not equal to what should have been provided. The room did not have a blow-dryer, there was no small refrigerator, and the restroom was extremely small.

One of the better places to stay in Chama

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: carpet not clean
Chama NM has a limited number of good motels and the Branding Iron is one. We stayed the last weekend of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic operation in 2011 and the motel was mostly empty and quiet.

Nice but could be better, try someplace else

Room was large and clean. Front desk was very friendly. No continental breakfast. Onsite Branding Iron restaurant is closed and for lease. Walls were paper thin. We could here conversation both next door and outside as if we were no walls.
