Reasonable cost, friendly and helpful staff. Easy access from highway. Little refrigerators in room. Can park right in front of room so you don't have to struggle with bags! Several restaurants very close.

Whenever I travel to the Albuquerque area, I always stay over fifty miles south in SOcoro at this ABVI because it is so gentle and personable and friendly and CLEAN and well managed and well equipped. The rooms are wonderful, hidden away without a huge fancy facade. These generous rooms really are hidden jewels that you have to get inside... More

The hotel's exterior is very run down as was the room's furniture. The room's are small and the A/C heater unit noise made it difficult to sleep. The entire bathroom needs to be renovated. The tub is stained, the shower head is weak, the toilet seat is chipped and the floor is stained. I'm sure it was clean but it's... More

We were in Socorro to visit the Trinity Site and VLA nearby. This seemed to be the best place for the price, so we gave it a try. Very Nice and Clean Hotel. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.

Travel to Socorro to visit the Trinity Site the following morning. Trinity Site is only open once in the spring and once in the fall. At the same time the city was sponsoring a soccer tournament. All major motels were booked and this used up motel was available. We booked two rooms, non smoking, we checked in and one of... More

America's Best Value Inn in Socorro, NM is in desperate need of a make-over. The deteriorating facility was clean-ish. Sheets and linens were clean, but the wear and tear on carpets and furniture is hard to miss. We literally went to the store and bought a can of Febreeze after entering the room for the first time. Breakfast was ok.... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice in one year. The owners are among the best people we have met. They are always very gracious and very helpful. They make every effort to be personable and offer all kinds of assistance. Some reviewers have way too much of an expectation which sometimes even Hilton might not be able to provide... More

We had a long drive and needed a place to stay for the night so we stayed at this place. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. They even had the breakfast ready at 6 in the morning. Definitely recommend this place. Great stay for a good price.

Our room wasn't as nice as on previous stays. The bathroom floor needed a deep scrub and caulking redone along the tub. No tissue dispenser. Breakfast was great, as always. The cost of the room had gone up, which we wouldn't mind if improvements followed.
