We stayed for one night while visiting White Sands National Monument and other area sights. This place reminded me of my childhood road trips where we always stayed in a motel. Normally we always stay in hotels while traveling so this was a new experience for my kids and a reminder for my husband and I about why motels are... More

we were visiting Alamogordo to see the White Sands - this motel was perfect! The rooms are large and clean. It IS like a motel from yesteryear - friendly owners, great location, great room (facing mountains in the back). It is simple, yes, but what more do you need? Rooms are very clean, owners are very friendly, and immediately they... More

My husband has stayed at White Sands Motel more than I, and he brought me to Alamagordo as the first part of our driving vacation. I was impressed with how clean our room was with the abundance of towels provided for us. The motel is laid out for car entry rooms and is centered at the highway crossroads of the... More

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
