Located at the edge of the the small town of Carrizozo it is next to HWY 54 and the tracks. This is for the RV park only: Great WiFi, the one bathroom/shower is basic (shower nice). Water, electricity and sewer hookups. The town is walkable and has a few restaurants.

Booked "last room" on booking.com. When we arrived, asked for a room with one bed instead of two. No problem, we were there early and motel was only half full. Only twelve rooms total. Reservations kept with pencil and paper. I would suggest booking direct for best room selection and price. No vacancy sign was on the next morning, so... More

Very friendly and well worth the stay-we just needed a place to parka with hook ups and we were gone the next morning on our way to visit the valley of fires and the nearby petroglyphs. The bathroom was cold but the water was plenty... More

The clerk at the desk, who happened to be the owners son, was very nice and let us use his fax for free. Room was very clean but outdated. Train went by twice but otherwise very quiet. We would definately stay again. Much better than dealing with the chain hotels.

I think the only reason it wasn't pascked is that people don't know what a wonderful value it is and the Motel's lack of marketing to... More

This motel was recommended to us by a local resident that we encountered at the Post Office. He said that this is where he has visiting family stay when he has no room at his home. Turned out to be a good bargain,. A decent room, microwave, mini-fridge, satellite TV, and a large bathroom, This is a railroad town. There... More
