Even though it says recently remodeled, it still felt dirty. A lot of oilfield workers staying here, not that it was an issue, just information. Stayed in a non-smoking room, but it kinda reeked of smoke

Receptionist was not very friendly or helpful. Sign out the front said remodelled rooms, but the room was just average. There were no coffee making facilities in the room and no breakfast provided. Bed was not very comfortable. A disappointing motel for the price we paid.

I stayed here because the billboards said "AAA Recommended." Maybe in 1960, but definitely NOT now. Room had a bad smell - disinfectant and cat piss to my nose. Refrigerator was so noisy I unplugged it. Bed was OK, bath was only so-so - no stopper for bathtub if I'd wanted to soak. Not especially clean and there was that... More

We stayed here because all the chain hotels like the Best Western were full, not because of the many tourists (I think) in November, but mainly because of the many workman who work at the oil/gas fields around the place (lots of pumpjacks on our way to Carlsbad). It is a bit of a decayed hotel, but just when we... More

I definitely would not recommend it to any one ever terrible. Very old and out dated. Only had a Queen bed. Everything needs up dating, No free breakfast, like most hotel motel have. Wall are so thin we could hear the people next to us.

We were 3 families traveling together toward Santa Fe, tired after a long drive we decided to stay in the closest hotel we could find on our way. First thing we saw, was that the reception looked very filthy and disorganized, but we thought, we are tired maybe the rooms will be just acceptable. The rooms looked very filthy, we... More

This hotel is a place to stay for the night on your way through and not much more. Our room was clean and more than enough room for us. The noise level was quiet enough to sleep too. The only complaint was that the people above us made the floor creak a lot but it wasn't distracting. It's definitely not... More

Our room smelled smoky and musty. Our bathroom window would not lock. Staff was not very friendly. Filthy carpet. Only the doorknob locks worked. Not the deadbolt. Not a safe place to leave your things for a trip to the caverns. My husband opened it with my library card, just to prove that he could. Pool was drained, even though... More
