Other reviews say it all. The service here is top notch. The hotel is a funky little property with great yard art. The room was big. The linens colorful which is a nice change of pace from boring white. The rooms are old, so don't expect modernity. The bath was old, but very very clean.

Our family gave this establishment a try based on the reviews we had read. We were very pleased. I am one to normally stay away from older hotels but wanted to give this one a chance. The service was as others have described. I was walked to my room by Dave the front desk clerk (very friendly). A woman (who... More

The hotel, in the older part of Las Cruces, 5 minutes away from the restaurants and shops in the newer sections, was easy to get to and about an hour's ride from the White Sands National Park. It was clean, had a refrigerator, salsa and chips and lemonade in the lobby for guests, a laundry, a pool and picnic tables... More

Can't miss the Big Chili - Greeted by Dave, naative Austrailian who ended up here by way of CT., who offered us a complimentary water or soda and salsa and chips - How about that!!! Stayed at this Hotel in Las Cruces for three days - when we pulled in we were hesitant as the area is not attractive- kind... More

Our experience at the Big Chile hotel was nothing short of excellent in every way. Expecting a regular ABVI, nice but nothing outstanding, we knew that all the great reviews we had seen were correct. David greeted us for check in, and was gracious, funny and welcoming in the first 5 minutes. We half-jokingly asked him if he had a... More

We were just looking for a place to crash after a long drive. The room was not great but still above average. The service was great. The attendants were very courteous, prompt and helpful. We would stay here again next time we drive through Las Cruces.

I arrived to the Big Chile hotel and was greeted warmly and promptly by the management who gave me complimentary bottles of water, hand-walked me to my room, and even checked the bathroom and closets for cleanliness. I was given a room rate that was even lower than I found online and has such a pleasant stay. the property is... More

This motel is a fantastic place to be. A friend and I were house hunting, and were got into Las Cruces around 11:30. We called ahead and were promptly given a rate. When we got in, service was (again) prompt and fantastic. We had a short tour, and were shown to our rooms - not given directions, shown. At 11:30... More

Very pleasant to be greeted by your hostess, escorted to your room and brought chips and salsa The room was very clean. The bathroom was a little worn and needs a bit of work, but overall the room was pleasantly decorated and inviting. The courtyard with its koi pond and sculptures was a bonus. The pool didn't appear to be... More

This is a bit of a tired old motel - it's had a lot of use. As noted, the owners are super chill , friendly, cool. The quirkiness of the hotel definitely adds to the charm. The lobby is very unique, with a grand piano even! Very cool. And as noted, the massive chili out front adds to the charm.... More
