Hotel Description:

Exceptional customer service makes our Clayton hotel stand out and is the perfect complement to any trip, from business to leisure. In Northeast New Mexico, travelers are introduced to the true meaning of the great outdoors with Clayton Lake a short drive away. Swimming and boating are summer time staples, and fishing is the sport of choice in this part of the region. For water lovers and those looking for a great way to keep cool during those sweltering summers, nothing beats a trip to the lake. To sweeten the deal, guests know they have cool, air conditioned accommodations waiting for them at the Best Western Kokopelli Lodge after a day on the water. Clayton, NM hotels are known for hospitality, but its taken to an entirely different level here. You re not just a guest; you re family when staying here. We re proud to say that 40 percent of our guests are return visitors, proof that guests always come first and feel right at home at this Clayton hotel. A favorite stopover for those in between travels, when en route to Dallas, Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, Kansas City or Colorado, why not stay where there s a free hot breakfast and spacious, quiet rooms? The most important meal of the day is always on us and features some of New Mexico s finest green chili. Kick off the morning with bottomless 100% Arabica coffee. All Clayton hotels put guests in a prime location, but it takes more to be a guest favorite. As a great stopping point between many places, our friendly staff members know how important it is to provide stellar service and accommodations. However, even for guests just stopping overnight, it s worth taking advantage of the wide open spaces and stopping by Dark Skies or the local Observatory. Few places provide such a stunning natural show as a night beneath the stars here. Book your next stopover at Best Western Kokopelli Lodge and stay awhile! Enjoy your stay.
