My husband and I stayed at this motel to visit the Bosque del Apache and the Trinity site on the White Sands Missile Range. Let me just say as a side note, we were very glad we stayed so close to the Trinity site (about half an hour to the check point at Stallion Gate and then another short drive... More

On the good side: the room was clean; the maid was pleasant and helpful; the beds were comfortable; the room's location @ the Back of the hotel was quiet; the a/c worked okay. The breakfast was adequate--clean area with several tables; cereal, a few choices of bread things, Yoplait yogurt, bananas, waffle machine, boiled eggs, juice, milk & coffee. Problems:... More

I was totally surprised by this hotel. Socorro is not much of a town, we have stayed there a few times to go to wild life refuge near there. This time we stopped for the night to break up our trip from Los Alamos to Las Cruces. I wasn't expecting anything great and I was so surprised by the hotel.... More

We were stranded in Socorro and brought to the hotel by the towing company. The hotel was very nice and clean and management was very cooperative. Only downside was that hotel staff could use some courtesy training. Our door was opened 4 times in one day by cleaning staff without announcement and before we could get to door. 4th time... More

I liked this hotel, the room was pretty clean, nothing special. The grounds were a little dirty and the outside stairs to get to the second floor were very enclosed and dark, so if I were traveling alone, I'd probably have asked for a room in the courtyard. The lady at check in was extremely nice and gave us a... More

Stayed there one night, picked after hearing other positive reviews. Upon arriving at about 530 PM there were two people ahead of me waiting to check in. It took THIRTY MINUTES before I was checked in, the check in clerk made no effort to expedite things even after explaining that i was keeping a friend waiting. Why did it take... More

Was in town for a workshop at Bosque del Apache NWR. Up very early - usually out of the room before breakfast, but we did manage to have a quick bite on 2 mornings -- good selection (typical of the chain). Everything was very clean throughout. It was a bit hard to regulate the temperature of the room - usually... More

This would be a top motel in most major cities, but in Socorro it is the best and we have stayed at several. First the motel is one of the newest in Socorro and easy to find. Starting at check-in for our one night stay, the young lady on the front desk was efficient, professional and friendly. She also made... More

Pros: great price, very early breakfast, but weekdays only--weekends later.Friendly staff, most everything works, nicer than it looks on the outside. Mini frig, Internet okay. Cons: clock broken, seam in carpet, hangers kept falling off rod--rod slot too wide. Biggest con is something I am noticing in a lot of motels lately. The wall heater/AC fan (very loud) is either...

I wrote one review but it was never posted. Unsafe for travel. No security or front desk for night time complaints. Drunks running around knocking on doors and shouting outside. Will never stay here again.
