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...

I stay there for a weekend a number of times per year for business. I had stayed at some of the other, more expensive, motels there and they were aweful. This place is inexpensive and comfy. The owner and staff are friendly and responsive. The rooms have a fridge and microwave, which for me, being a business traveler, is important.... More

We've stayed at the Satellite Inn twice while in Alamogordo visiting family. It's exactly what you would expect for the price: basic (no hair dryer, no ironing board/iron although I guess you can request an iron at the front desk and few amenities in-room) It's an old property that has not been updated but it's a safe place to stay...

We arrived late and the manager was friendly and helpful despite our 2.00 a.m. arrival. the room was clean overall but their was a glob of soap in the tub from the prior guest and a lip balm stick on the floor. Nevertheless the beds were comfortable and despite being on the main road quiet. Two trains came thru town... More

I noticed that the rest of the reviews are all over two years old. Perhaps the motel is under new management, but I found it to be very clean and well-appointed, especially considering the $40/night price for a double room. I have paid more than twice as much for worse accomodations. The lobby is very clean and well-kept, which was... More
