It was a bad sign there were 3 deodorisers in the room. Usually when we see towels this thin they are relegated to drying the dogs. But then the sheets were transparent. The only positive experience here was the breakfast. In a 3 week trip out west this was the worst accommodation we encountered.

We went to Socorro for the Crane Festival at the Bosque del Apache. When we arrived at the Econolodge where we'd made reservations in September, we were told they didn't have a room for us due to a computer glitch. They did book us a room at this hotel which they said was in every way, comparable to Econolodge. Our... More

I've stayed at this inn three or four times over the last few years, always while I was attending the Festival of the Cranes at the nearby Bosque del Apache Nat. Wildlife Refuge. I have to say that little by little, but inexorably, the motel is declining. The walls had more holes in them (like from old pictures or shelves... More

Not an outstanding motel compared to some of the other better known chains but very clean, reasonably priced, convenient, and all the staff are friendly and helpful. I stayed about 4 days for the annual Crane Festival at Bosque del Apache. Welcoming and check in was quick and efficient, staff were every nice, and the room had all the comfort... More

Front desk staff was very friendly. The hotel was clean but needed a deep cleaning. We were traveling through and just stayed 1 night. Value was good. Breakfast was good. Bread was dry and milk was sour. We asked for some fresh and the manager brought out a new gallon. Overall good place for a over night stay.

Just needed an inexpensive place for the night on our last leg of a 6,000 mile trip. For $50 I didn't expect much but was happy with the room. Clean sheets, hot water, cold air conditioner, wifi, and room looked ok to me. It has wide parking spaces for opening doors to remove luggage and lots of restaurants nearby. Average... More

I chose this motel based upon other TripAdvisors recent reviews. It's getting to the point where I am afraid to trust TripAdvisor anymore, and I really don't want that to happen. We arrived a bit earlier than check in time - and we were allowed to check into room 132. The man at the front desk wasn't cordial, but he... More

The Good: 1. Nice room, clean and very well made up 2. Plenty of towels 3. DJ (at the desk) called 5 minutes or so after I was in the room to ask if everything was all right (it was). He was very responsive throughout. 4. Quite good breakfast, bananas, make-it-yourself waffle machine worked well, OJ, eggs, oatmeal, cold cereal,... More
