Welcome! The Charles Motel & Hot Springs, open to the public daily for lodging and hot spring soaks, retains many historic characteristics that date back from the time the facility was built – the bathhouse layout is original, as is the funky vintage tile work – giving the Charles all the charm in the world.
The Charles is made up of two historical buildings. The Spa building, constructed in the late 1940s, and The Charles Apartments, built in the early ‘30s, sit side-by-side on Broadway, awaiting the arrival of guests who venture to the southwest for a relaxing getaway, or on a quest for healing, or even who “just had to stop in a town called Truth or Consequences.”
The real joy of the Charles Spa and Motel lies in the mineral-rich water that flows from the ground beneath the facility, arriving in the Charles’ baths at a piping 113.5 degrees fahrenheit. This incredible water has been used in healing for centuries.
The Charles Apartments are available for short and long-term stays, with rooms priced by the day or month. The amenities in the rooms include a sitting area, one or two beds, cable tv, and full bathrooms. Most rooms have a full kitchen; all have a refrigerator and microwave. Morning coffee and tea is available in the Lobby.
Overnight guests are allotted one mineral bath per person per day. Guests who stay for longer periods of time are encouraged to buy a bath card to keep on file for soaking as desired.
