Just arrived and all of the excellent reviews are true, this place is great! From a drink and a snack, to escorting us to the room and making sure we have what we need, even offering the laundry room!! We have stayed in many hotels around the world and the service of this one is tops! The rooms are really...

Stopped here on a 5 week road trip across the SW US with husband and kids. The owners were very gracious and friendly, showed us two room options prior to booking, bought chips and salsa to our room, and made an excellent recommendation for dinner at Marachi's. The room was clean with great curtains that kept out the light for...

For the price we paid, we were very happy with all aspects of this motel. Rooms were large and clean. We did not feel particularly unsafe in the motel or surrounding neighborhood. We wished that we could stay longer in Las Cruces and at this property. For example, we think that we would have enjoyed using the pool and the...

We stayed on this hotel just for one night, it was comfortable and clean, we got chips and salsa at check in and the owners were very welcoming. I have only two small issues with it, the bathroom didn't have a fan and the breakfast was not very appetizing, I would come back and overall a pretty good place to...

Stopped here on trip to AZ as a last minute booking. Owners were absolutely wonderful, escorted us to our room and then returned shortly thereafter with extra towels and even served us chips and salsa, along with offer of complimentary sodas or water. Would highly recommend this hotel!!

We are retired and traveling the U.S. by car. This property is a mom and pop motel run by David and Elina. It is an old property that is being renovated by the owners. The room was clean, good hot water and pressure, good a/c, good TV, few towels, not the best part of town, and poor breakfast offering. This...

The guest rooms are fitted with steel doors and commercial grade, self locking locks. For other readers, the continental breakfast consists of 4 cereals, danish, muffin, bagel...

While staying in Las Cruces for business I reserved at the " Big Chile Inn" seeing that it was so highly rated. I am so happy that I did. David checked me in and we proceeded to have a wonderful conversation for a number of minutes (and throughout my stay BTW). He then showed me to my room where Elina...

My husband and I traveled for 10 days and stayed in some gross hotels. This hotel is not only clean, newly renevated but the owners were one of a kind nice people! It feels more like a home than an average hotel. We brought our own sheets, pillow cases and comforter and this is the only hotel we didnt feel...

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. The pool area was beautiful, gardens with outdoor seating and lots of shade. I will stay there again if I have to go to Las Cruces in the future, and would recommend the inn to friends and relatives.

The owners were very helpful, friendly and accommodating. David got me a larger room and brought two cots to my room w/o extra cost. The free soft drink/water and chips and salsa brought to our room were a very nice touch. Our family of six (4 kids 12 and under) managed to all squeeze in.
