The hotel is old and the state of the bathrooms certainly reflect that. However, for the price, it was clean and in a good location. The staff were courteous and friendly. The breakfast was good. We travel with pets and they were accommodating and the "pet friendly" room was clean.

The rooms are maxed out, flat panel TV, microwave, refrigerator, all the way down to the iron, ironing board and hair dryer. The best part of this hotel is the staff. The staff at... More

Being the older facilty that we are, we feel like we are overlooked for the newer, more modern looking facilities. Thank you for giving us the chance to show that we are right up there with the big boys! Looking forward to your return and thanks... More

I've stayed at many hotels. While this one may be older, the rooms have been maintained and are very clean in my experience. The staff was excellent. In short, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Clean place with average hotel breakfast. Outdated rooms (pink and black bathroom tiles) and slightly saggy mattress. No elevator to second level . Located in midst of business strip. Has a view of the desert toward White Sands National Monument.

Front desk very friendly upon arrival. Used Best Western reward points. We like the Best Western layout of exterior doors for unloading. Pet friendly but no real place to walk our pup.

This is a nice friendly hotel to stay in. The rooms are nice and the hotel is near to restaurants and shopping. It is only about 15 minutes away from White Sands National Park. The staff is extremely friendly and go out of their way to help you if you need anything.
