Built in 1892, the historic Hotel Eklund currently has 26 guest rooms, as well as 2 dining rooms and one of New Mexico’s most iconic bars. We serve delicious steaks, authentic New Mexican dishes, and classic comfort foods, along with an excellent selection of regional beers and wines.  For over 100 years the Eklund has been Clayton’s premier boutique hotel, and the character of the old west is still alive and well.


Our hotel rooms, which were extensively remodeled in 2007,  are comfortable and unique. We treat our hotel guests like family, and we are pet friendly. Whether you have business in Clayton or are just passing through, we want to help you to book your next stay with us.
