Driving from Tucson, we stopped in Alamogordo for the night and this little motel was a nice surprise. Very friendly staff, super clean room, very quiet. Plenty of restaurants nearby. 15 minutes from White Sands National Monument. No pool.

My fiance and I stayed here for 5 days, we loved exploring Alamogordo and surrounding cities. This motel has easy access to highway, food, shopping, laundry, ECT... We loved it, I was a bit upset, I called and booked 5 months in advance, however when I checked in I was charged $40.00 more than I had been quoted. I loved... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the room was exceptionally clean -- cleaner than most hotel/motel rooms I've stayed in. The price was very, very reasonable. If we ever find ourselves in Alamogordo again, we will definitely stay here.

My research into motels in the Alamogordo NM area made me think I'd like to try this motel, and the reviews were very good. I wasn't disappointed. I love the courtyard style of the place and the room was comfortable, very attractive, and at a great price. One review mentioned problems with the wifi connection, so when I experienced the...

Loved our stay here! We got a room around back facing the Sacramento Mountains and it was very quiet! Nice clean room and bath with comfy beds and cool AC. Can't beat this place! Friendly staff, close to White Sands and lots of great places to eat.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Decent breakfast for a smaller place as well. Room was clean and comfortable. Great location on the White Sands end of town, ample parking. They let me borrow a sled to take to White Sands and sled down the dunes.

The White Sands motel is great! I am glad we chose it, based on the very good Tripadvisor reviews. It is very clean and so well situated. Our room was far away from the road and we could see the mountains. The owners were away but the friend who replaced them was very nice and helpful.

The White Sands motel is a great place to stay. Very clean very well maintained. The beds were very comfortable. The owner was very friendly and very helpful. At night it has a great neon motel sign out front. The price was very reasonable. If we ever stay in Alamogordo again this will be our motel of choice
