Pelican Spa, 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.

The in-store exhibit is as good as the juicy patty.

The scrambling but funny exhibits will cheer you up.

Pelican Spa

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

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


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

The cheapest room costs only $55 per night, so that it just fits the extended stay like hot spring cure.


Overnight guests can freely utilize hot springs in this building.

Only one bedroom has a private hot spring.

Here is the room, named The Aqua Room.

The Aqua Room

This room is right beside private baths 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.

Tub in the Aqua Room

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

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 baths.

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

Biggest Tub

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

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.

Clean up the place before you leave.
