Explore Hotel

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. Youre not just a guest; youre family when staying here. Were 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 theres a free hot breakfast and spacious, quiet rooms? The most important meal of the day is always on us and features some of New Mexicos 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, its 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.

Owner Response
Bill C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Kokopelli Lodge, responded to this review
Dear Guest, We are very sorry this misunderstanding has come to this. We certainly did not intend to make you feel as though we were accusing you of lying. There has been a lot of interaction about this incident that has been, and probably should stay, out of the public eye so I will try to avoid the proverbial “Pouring salt in the wound” in this forum. We recommend getting the cancellation number from any company you cancel something with to everyone. Getting the cancellation number protects both you and the company you are doing business with. Our policy requires our staff to open the reservation in question, confirm that they are cancelling the correct reservation, and cancel that reservation while they still have the guest on the phone. If we have the guests email address our staff can then offer to email confirmation of that cancellation and/or convey it to them over the phone. If the guest selects the email confirmation our staff clicks on the proper button and the system generates and sends the email at that time. In the case of multiple reservations they then go on to the next reservation cancellation. In your case, this process either broke down or you were not talking to us. If it broke, then without at least a general time that you called, we face an extremely difficult task trying to figure how, why, or even if it broke. This in turn makes it difficult to develop or tweak our policy effectively to prevent this kind of incident. I feel it is unfair to “yell at” or chastise our entire staff over the possibility one of them failed to properly follow policy. We invite you to continue to work with us to try to resolve this issue in a way that satisfies both of us. Respectfully, Bill C General Manager
