The bed was a memory foam bed that was a new experience for us and it was a queen and we're used to sleeping in a king. The experience overall was positive but not sure I would recommend this place.
Here's the view from the outside.
We managed to leave the motel around 9 am. When we got up at 7 am it was 42 degrees outside! Yikes! I considered putting on my heated jacket but by the time we left it quickly moved up into the 50's as we gained elevation and the sun was shining. Yes, another Bluebird day! We left Silverton and headed toward Durango. Fortunately for us the sun was on the side of the mountain we were climbing. We pretty much had the highway to ourselves. A few oncoming bikes and cars and two vehicles behind us that we let pass so we could enjoy our ride.
It was a fantastic ride! Sunny, warming up to 60 plus, I turned off the heated grips and grinned as we took the curves at a brisk pace! Oh my, this was heaven!!!! We rode through Durango and stopped at the south end of the city at a park for a little break. Beautiful!
True to our decision, we stayed off the main highways and rode the little two laners. Only late in the day did we have to hop on the Interstate for a few miles. We ended up at Cline's Corners Travel Center at I-40. We stopped there and took a break and went through the store to buy a few stickers. By then it was just after 5 pm and we wanted to stop for the evening.
Unfortunately, we wanted to head east but the closest lodging was over 60 miles away! Yikes, another hour. So we went West 20 miles and ended up in Moriarty, NM at the Sunset Motel. Oh boy, lovely place. So glad we stopped here. It's old but well cared for and renovated. Super clean and cute. I love this place ;-)
