Sleep

  • El Rancho Hotel, 1000 E. Hwy 66, +1-505-863-9311 (+1-800-543-6351 toll free; email: elrancho@cnetco.com), [1]. Self-proclaimed "Home of the movie stars", this kitschy hotel was built in 1937 for the brother of Hollywood director D.W. Griffith and was headquarters for a number of westerns filmed in the area in the 40s and 50s. Its current owners keep the hotel in vintage condition, and if the atmosphere is a little patchy in places, the prices are reasonable and the environment worth the trouble. $58-$86 (1-4 people).
