Very enjoyable and quiet stay. Grand-children and husband enjoyed the pool and the location. I would be very willing to stay more often. Staff at check in and check out very friendly and helpful. Always cheerful and smiling. Breakfast was very satisfying and had a great selection to meet the families wants.

We booked this room through Expedia. The room smelled, there were countless bugs on the floor. So many that we bought spray for the room. They put us in a handicap room for no reason. We were in a dark hallway just across from the kitchen/eating area. They left both doors to these areas opened and we saw several roaches... More

I checked into this hotel, and it looked fine from the outside, but when I went in and was in the bathroom. I looked at the floor and the dirt and hair there gave me the dry heaves! So I inspected the whole room, and found that all of the floors were filthy.

Easy check in, went straight to the pool which was clean and had towels ready for us. That was great, because we certainly didn't want to hang in the room, it was SO smoke-smelly! Actually the combo of smoke and deodorizer. Very small room, funky layout with a room holding a vanity counter, the fridge and micro, just before entering... More

Though the room was small, it was well kept and the bedding and towels were clean. Excellent Mexican restaurant next door and location near the historic district were definite plusses. No complaints, though nothing to particularly recommend over any other, price being even.

The motel was convenient to all the sites we went on our stay in Roswell. The price was right for what the service we received. We would have enjoyed having a hot tub available and being able to stay on the first floor so that we didn't have to cart our luggage up the steps.

Showed up without a reservation......... no problem! Nice,, clean, with a very good Mexican restaurant next door. Less than half the price of another Best Western across the street. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Motel a little dated, clean. bed slept well. internet slow. Breakfast passable. Staff friendly, small town feel in a medium size town. Excellent Mexican restaurant adjacent to property for all meals. good location for restaurants and shopping. Near NMMI.

We were traveling without reservations around New Mexico and decided due to the gangs, and crime we saw in ALburquerque, to move to another city. Most of the hotels were way high for what we pay for a clean hotel but this had a good rate. The hotel was an older hotel but the room was updated, and very very... More
