We are a family of 5, so it was nice to find a place which could accommodate us in a single room with no roll-away. Everything worked and was clean. The owners were very friendly. Breakfast was basic, but good. I left an item in the room when we departed, and the owner sent it to us promptly.

This motel was very clean and neat. Great with my two daughters since they found me a remote room without neighbors so we could be louder if wanted. They also had sleds to borrow for sledding down the dunes - saved our family almost $50. Two thumbs up!!!

Stay not just for the cool retro sign and vintage motel feel. The owners keep the place clean and comfortable. Breakfast is simple but filling and the rooms comfortable. There are probably places with better breakfasts and fancier rooms but for the price, it's a good stop.

This motel was a great find. It appeared a little bit on the older side but the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The motel clerk was very courteous and helpful. She offered to let us borrow their sleds for our trip to White Sands National Monument so we didn't have to buy them, even after we had checked out.... More

First impressions are everything, or at least almost everything. After driving 2 hours through construction in 103 degree heat we looked forward to getting out of the sun and giving the engine a rest. Pulling into the White Sands Motel, we had to park out from under the inviting roof outside the office - apparently another guest was checking in.... More

Everyone should visit the White Sands National Monument, and everyone who does should stay at the White Sands motel. In many ways it is a trip back in time to those independent motels that dotted the land in the 60s when every family that could took a road trip. The motel is from that time, but it is perfectly maintained.... More

three of us drove down in early may from albuquerque for full moon night walk at white sands. nothing fancy but this this mom-n-pop motel was clean, comfortable, with three very good beds and a nice little breakfast in the lobby. owners welcomed us warmly and let us use these plastic discs to "sled" down the dunes which was fun....

You can feel free to bypass all the other hotels and stop here. Very good service and very nice grounds, rooms. The beds, pillows are better then most 4/5 star hotels I've stayed at. Older hotel that has been kept up to like new. Great value! Don't hesitate to stay here, you won't regret it.

It is very tidy on the outside, but somehow I was doubtful. No need! The hosts were helpful and the rooms were as clean as anywhere else I've stayed. And there was a refrigerator in the room. that was very helpful. I'd go back for sure - and not be as doubtful this time.

We rented 2 rooms in May 2014. This is an independently run business. The owners were very friendly and professional. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. They included a complimentary continental breakfast and 70 tv channels plus a small fridge in each room. All 3 of us agreed we would absolutely stay at The White Sands Motel again. There... More
