This was the absolute WORST night of our 8-night trip. The room was dirty, there are no amenities to speak of, and the pool was drained! There were some sketchy people hanging out in the parking lot that made us extremely uncomfortable (they approached asking for cigarettes and making comments like "You shouldn't be here" to my teenage son), and...

We traveled through Alamogordo on our Big 2015 Road Trip, and the space-age sign of the Satellite Inn guided us in for an evening's rest. The front desk staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The room was spacious, with adequate AC and a large bath area. There were mysterious markings on one of the walls, but probably due more to... More

Cheap place for 1 night. Not very clean and the matress was very hard. The breakfast was OK, the counter and the bread's box was dirty. It was calm place. I don't recommand this place and I will not return.

Reserved a 3 bed non smoking room via a travel site. Got there and they pulled a bait and switch. Told me that they don't have my room and that I'd have to take a smoking room. My family doesn't smoke and we don't want to smell like smoke. The clerk wanted to argue that I didn't reserve the room... More

this is a very good trouble free place to stay for the budget traveler or working person. Last I knew they had weekly rates you can also get a late checkout in my view this is the best budget priced motel in Alamogordo and I highly recommend the place

We had a king sized room. Room was clean overall. There was no coffee maker in the room but there was some coffee in the office. Room could use done shampoo and they needed to do some maintenance on the door where the tub was. Overall for the money it was acceptable.

after a long day under ground at Carlsbad, mn this was a great find, room was ok, and a great price for the stay, we hit a few big name motels and they came up short. now we are learning to go to the little guys as they offer the same and pets stay free.

Affordable <$50 room with cigarette burns in the sheets, rock hard bed, brown stains in the pillows, loose sink and bathtub faucets, dirty walls and critters running across the floor. For the price it might seem like a dream come true however, there is a train that runs extremely close to this place with a startling loud horn blast at... More

Motel is old and not kept up. Phone did not have cord and handset. Clock did not work and there was no place to put up the security chain on the door. Not a place to stay. Better places in town to stay.

This was a great inexpensive hotel for my long term stay - I stayed a month there. They offer weekly and monthly rates. We were in an updated room and it was slightly larger than some of the other motels along White Sands Blvd. They also offer a free light breakfast with cereal, toast, and usually a danish of some...
