Stayed here for one night. Service was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and spacious however the wifi was not the best and we had to stand outside our room to be able to access it properly. A small but nice breakfast was included and we were able to borrow sleds to use when we visited the... More

I headed down to Alamogordo with a group of fellow photographers to visit the White Sands National Monument. We stayed at the motel and found the price reasonable and the room spotless. It is an older motel, but the rooms have a new refrigerator, microwave and flat screen television. The bed was very comfortable, which is very important to me.... More

Unlike other places we've stayed at on our trip that cost way more, the White Sands Motel offers a great value for the price. The rooms are basic and clean. The water is piping hot and stays hot. The hosts are friendly and helpful with answers to questions. On a strip with chain restaurant after chain hotel, this is a... More

We were looking for a place close to White Sands, and this motel fit the bill. The price was reasonable for 2. There are smoking and nonsmoking rooms. While the room we had (2 beds) was smaller than newer hotel rooms, it was very clean, had a microwave, refrigerator and flat screen TV. The beds were very comfortable. The owners/front... More

The motel may not be much to look at from the outside, but the room was very adequate — and for a good price. Simple, but clean and comfortable. You can tell the owners take pride in their establishment.

My husband and I were searching for a place to spend the night which would require very little walking. We found this Motel and were pleasantly surprised as it was just "steps" from the car to the room. With severe back problems we had stayed previously at one of the places that require walking thru the lobby to your room.... More

My wife and I along with our 3 children stayed for an evening in this quaint motel. We reserved a family room with three beds, which was perfect for our family! The owners clearly take great pride in their motel, as it was very clean, and they both were so nice and welcoming (also offering to let us use their... More

Loved our 2 night stay here. The whole place is bright and cheerful, very clean and comfortable. A real little gem. Had a 2 room family suite and it was very spacious and comfortable. Would stay here any time.

I was traveling with my sister who had flown in from Michigan to show her the sights of NM. White Sands Nat'l Park had to be on the list. So when I checked your web sight, White Sands Motel stood out. I was tickled with the older fashioned motel, loved the bright, fresh paint, and of course, the great reviews.... More
