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

We stayed in Alamogordo for 1 night at this cute, little motel and don't really have anything to complain about. The room was clean. The King bed was amazingly comfortable. The room had a fridge, microwave, flat screen TV and small coffee pot and even had a hair dryer in one of the drawers under the TV, if you prefer... More

I booked this motel based on Trip Advisor reviews, and we found it to be clean and cozy for the price. The bathroom was a little small, but it was fresh and clean, which is what matters most. We did not stay for the breakfast, so I can't comment on that. It was nice to park right in front of... More

I was exhausted when I arrived in Almogordo and happy to see a small motel to stay at. My car was full of equipment and wanted somewhere I could park just outside the door. The staff was so friendly, allowing me to look at several rooms before deciding which one I wanted. I noticed that the owners were careful about... More

The hotel was clean and nice. The bathroom was small and only one sink. There was no tub, only a shower, and we had the suite, a separate room with two beds in it. We had read the reviews, and thought from the reviews the breakfast would be more. Alas, it is a Continental Breakfast of a few wrapped breakfast... More

My wife and I stayed here on Sunday (2/1) and really enjoyed it. The lady who checked us in was very friendly. The place only has a few rooms, so it is nice and quiet. The rooms are small, but contain ample storage. They are also clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the nice flat screen!

Found this great little motel by chance driving through Alamogordo in need of a last minute place to stay. It accommodated four of us comfortably for just $68. The room was very clean & charming with a retro vibe, equipped with all the important stuff: TV, fridge, comfortable beds, cute pink-tiled bathroom, HOT water. The owner who welcomed us at... More

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!
