Pelican Spa (Truth or Consequences) - Hot Springs in New Mexico


A hot spring cure is to stay at a hot spring inn at least for a week and to have disease treatment through the soak.

For the purpose, different from hotels for holidaymaking or recovery from exhaustion, such inn should be cheaper and with the most basic amenity.

The hot spring inn in the United States was full of primary colors.

Sparky's Burgers, BBQ & Espresso

Hatch, a neighboring town to Truth or Consequences, is famous for its chili peppers.

The restaurant where you can get a hamburger with that chili is Sparky's Burgers, BBQ & Espresso.

Its interior was as nice as its juicy patties.

The fun atmosphere of the interior will cheer you up just by looking at it.

Affordable lodging choice

Most hotels in T or C are relatively small and sometimes it is difficult to find vacancy at weekends.

Pink Pelican 01

Out of them, Pelican Spa may be an exception that accommodates sudden travelers.

Exterior 01

There are several buildings painted by primary colors in the large area of the town, and each of them is the lodging facility.

Exterior 02

The cheapest room costs only $55.00 per night (as of this writing), so that it just fits the extended stay like hot spring cure.

Courtyard 01

Overnight guests can freely utilize hot springs in this building.

Only one bedroom has a private hot spring.

This is the room, named The Aqua Room.

The Aqua Room

The room is right beside private pools that are open to overnight guests, so that you have to expect noises to some extent.

Rooms look also colorful, and have the most basic amenity, even though they are not especially clean.

Smile 01

When you open the faucet, plenty of spring water gush out.

Yellow Tub

You can enjoy the great water all you like, with moderate temperature and without particular odor.

In addition to the bedroom’s bath, there are four private pools.

Turquoise Tub

All are indoor baths and overnight guests can freely use them as long as there are previous visitors.

Largest Bathroom 2

This is the biggest one but you can fill it up in a short time due to the plenty of water input.

Soaking 01

Sometimes their permissive way becomes a drawback.

For example, when previous visitors used detergent in a tub and the rinse was not sufficient, I noticed the smell.

I need a cleaning brush.
Were you such a clean freak?

Clean up the place before you leave.
