…Dusty Boots Motel

There are several other trails to check out too; to name just a few, the Osha Trail, Rim Trail, or the Nelson Canyon Vista Trail. The Old Apple Barn, just six miles away, was a major stop on the Cloud-Climbing Railroad to transport fresh apples; they now have a vintage emporium, tasty fudge and apple pies and dumplings.

We are a great central place to stay while you plan day trips to visit our corner of New Mexico. Within a short distance, you will find many places to explore! White Sands National Monument is exactly one hour from our front door to their visitor center. The Smokey Bear Historical Park, located in Capitan, is just 42 miles away. No visit is complete without visiting the Lincoln Historic Site, only 75 miles and an hour and a half hour drive away, where Billy the Kid tangled with the Dolan’s and escaped from the Lincoln County Court. Carlsbad Caverns National Park is also an easy day trip. It is located about two and half hours from Cloudcroft.

The Dusty Boots Motel and Café is a destination motel, and with that in mind, we go out of our way to ensure that your trip here is both comfortable and pleasurable! We are a family owned and operated business. We are all dedicated to ensure that all of our motel and café guests are treated to superior service. At any time, before, during or after your visit, we may do something for you, please let us know! We are all here to make sure you have a great time, so you can just focus on making great memories!

Our Mission

Nestled in the Sacramento Mountains, in the picturesque village of Cloudcroft, the Dusty Boots Motel blends comfort, convenience and location into one of New Mexico’s most superior lodging experiences. Since our opening in November of 2016, Dusty Boots has remained one of TripAdvisor’s top motels in Cloudcroft, NM. Many of our guest’s reviews reflect the personalized and whole-hearted service of our staff. We strive hard to meet all of our guests needs. Several guests have referred to Dusty Boots as their “home away from home”.

Since purchasing the motel in November of 2016, we have been busy renovating the rooms, one by one. The new rooms are artfully decorated with a rustic western theme. All of our rooms have been updated with new memory- foam mattresses, top quality 100% cotton sheets, comforters and whimsical quilts and décor. All of the rooms also come with new flat screen TVs, mini-fridges, microwaves, and full size coffee pots. We also have complimentary WI-FI and cable TV.
