This was a great place for the money. Room was clean, beds were super comfy. Shower had good pressure. Bathtub didn't drain super fast, but not the end of the world. After taxes we paid $77. Quite the bargain for a clean comfy room. We didn't try breakfast, but I imagine it was typical.

We've stayed here a couple of times now. The place is great for visiting Alamogordo. Rooms are very clean, fridge and microwave, cable tv, free wifi, and a continental b-fast all at a great rate. Will stay again!

You can't miss the lovely old sign as you go through Alamagordo, and it's great to find a place with some personality rather than the chains. The couple who run it are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and quiet, and there's a light breakfast included. Very affordable and highly recommended.

The owners pride in keeping this place clean shows through. Even though the property and furnishings are older the value is GREAT. We were greeted at the desk by a most genuine woman. We believe she was one of the owners. The bed was comfortable and the room was immaculate. What more can you ask for. The place reminded us... More

Highly recommend this motel. Extremely clean and friendly and they lend the snow pan/sleds for White Sands for free! Coffee and simple breakfast and very nice and accommodating owners. Charming vintage sign too. It is difficult to find independently owned businesses, especially in Alamagordo. This is a real find. Thanks for the great stay.

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.
