We stayed here for one night 6/2015 and found it to be very good. I asked the desk clerk if it was a new building because it looked so good and he informed me it had been renovated. Our room was also renovated with the same good quality as the rest. The pool was clean and enjoyable. The bathroom was... More

Family of four with two small children. Very clean, recently renovated. Nice pool area, decent breakfast. We got our room for $73 after taxes and fees, and we're really pleasantly surprised! Definitely a great place to stop if you're looking for a cheap place off of I-40!

Only hotel in town with a room that night, so we didn't care where we stayed. But we were surprised that it was as nice as it was. However, I never saw an elevator in that place! Rooms were clean but the window was broken (and sealed somewhat) in our room! But didn't see that until the next morning. Breakfast... More

After much complication & struggle to find a working pool in the area, we were delighted to find the Desert Inn. Twyla (not sure on spelling) greeted us with a smiling face & exceptional customer service. She deserves an award! She made our first visit wonderful! The room was clean, pool was functional (but the chlorine smell left the kids... More

Everything was in order, very pleasant desk staff. Thank you Al. Good hot breakfast menu, typical of this venue. The green Chile was a nice touch for the biscuits! Beds were very comfortable, room was nice and clean. Would stay here again w/o hesitation.

This quaint Hotels convenient location, pet friendly and affordable rates are just a few great things to say about this establishment. Not only were the rooms cozy and squeaky clean, the customer service was some of the best we've experienced! The night desk clerk Jessica was so friendly and polite it goes beyond saying she made us feel very welcome... More

The rooms are small and compact, but comfortable. The breakfast is adequate, offering cereals, Belgium waffles, fruit, sausage and biscuits, hard boiled eggs, coffee and apple or cranberry juices. The indoor pool and hot tub were both closed. My complaint was it was listed on line for $60 a night. We had always paid around $75. The charge ended up... More

Clean room comfortable bed, cozy but efficient. Pool, Hot tub and ice machine on 2nd floor ALL out of order. Hence 4 , not 5 stars. Just needed a place to rest. Plenty of hot water and water pressure. Girl at front desk accommodating for our midnight check in. Used the recommended 2nd floor front and it was very quiet.... More
