Stay Local

Stay Local. May sound like an odd concept if you already live here. But, how often do you have visitors, family or friends, that need a place to stay while in town? Maybe you are traveling historic Route 66 or making time on I-40. New Mexico is a wonderful place for a quick stop or an extended vacation, and the East Mountains is a great hub from which to explore the Land of Enchantment.

Our region has easy access to both the state’s Capital and its largest metro area, Albuquerque, and numerous Pueblos. And, with beautiful scenery, far-reaching views, and friendly small towns, the East Mountains offers the perfect True New Mexico experience. Link to Local Regional Tourism

Whether you are seeking a traditional hotel, an authentic Route 66 motel, or bed & breakfast experience, the East Mountains has these options. We also have locations for RV camping, tent camping, and several lodging options that include equine facilities. Would you prefer a spectacular home all to yourself? Well that’s an option too — and the peaceful views will knock your socks off. Link to Local Businesses-search Lodging

Whether it’s an overnight stop, weekend staycation, or a desire to immerse yourself in New Mexico culture, we invite you to explore the East Mountain region, it’s nearby neighbors, and enjoy our friendly, small-town accommodations and businesses. Bienvenidos!
