My family and I were on a three week vacation and stayed here for one night to visit the white sands park. The rooms were very clean and the manger was so helpful. The even allowed us to borrow sled for the sand dunes so we would not have to purchase them. It is an older motel but I was... More

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

Excellent. Nice surprise. Best service, very clean room. We were very impressed. Check in was very easy. Both of the staff we dealt with were professional and helpful. The room was well maintained. The beds had up to date and well maintained furnishings. Immaculate. Modern mattress covers so they obviously keep up with cleaning standards around bug issues. Breakfast was... More

Found this on TripAdvisor and room was great- re done and good bed... Kind of like a water bed but way better... I have back problems and bed helped. Dinner was within walking distance and room was good. Wasn't too crowded and we got a back room so very quiet.

A very quiet, (spotlessly) clean, safe, comfortable and well kept facility, with a lot of amenities for the very reasonable price (free wi-fi, flat panel cable TV, refrigerator, microwave, in-room coffee, hair dryer, free front door parking). The manager was extremely personable and an interesting conversationalist. He comes from South Africa and was great about sharing experiences from there. Located... More
