This motel is located 13 miles from White Sands Monument. It is also close to restaurants downtown. You get a good breakfast included in the price. I accidentally lost the room key in the white sands and they were nice enough to not charge me.

We loved staying at this vintage hotel, clean and friendly. We sat outside our rooms behind the main drag, seating and tables provided, to enjoy the view of the mountains and relax with a few brews. So much better than a big Corp chain.

I'm a big fan of supporting the smaller motel chains when I can. This location comes with free parking right in front of your room, it's quiet, very clean, friendly staff, the crucial a/c, excellent water pressure in shower, tv, comfortable beds, good wifi, a couple chairs outside your room if you want to sit outside for a bit, and...

We have stayed in several "old style" motels in our travels and this was a great experience. Clean with all the amenities of the usual motels i.e. Holiday Inn Express, Fairfield Inns etc. Compact, but fulfilled all our needs. They even have a continental breakfast. That won't win any awards, no hot items, but again, it is nourishment and a...

White Sands Motel was very clean, quiet, comfortable, and extremely hospitable; as well as the best price in the area. I was very impressed. Breakfast was nice, they provided sleds for White Sands, and it was very convenient to restaurants. When I return to that area I will definitely stay there !

Once again, TripAdvisor has come thru. It was labor day weekend and didn't make it to our campsite in time. This place was wonderful. The desk person (owner I assume) was so sweet. She gave us a great room in the back that had a fantastic view of the mountains as well as the sunrise. The breakfast was spectacular. It...

This place was a welcome change from the Big Box hotels. Clean cozy room w/ all the comforts of the big hotels but more affordable. Cold A/C, great WiFi, flat scree cable TV, microwave & mini fridge & a comfy bed.

This place is exactly what you need: clean, comfortable, quiet, friendly owners. This little motel offers friendly owners, clean rooms and direct outdoor entry. Plenty of clean towels and a small refrigerator with an ice compartment to freeze our water bottles. The a/c worked great and we could only hear the neighbors when they slammed the door closed. I must...

Very clean and very friendly. Our family of 5 is touring the southwest in search of adventure and memories. The hotel is exactly what we were hoping for...a real slice of true Americana. The white sands national park is just 10 min from the hotel and completely remarkable. A must see. The kids loved it. Be sure to borrow the...

Staying at the newer chain Motels can have its advantages but I love it when you come across a little gem of an independent old Motel like this one. The complex was very well maintained, and even the parking lot was clean. The room, though maybe a little on the small side was more than adequate for my needs. Most...
