White Sands Motel appeared to be a nice stay. Although the location is not brilliant (between much bigger chain motels and fast food joints), it's a good starting point for visiting White Sands National Park. Besides that you get a lot for a small amount of money. It's very clean, the rooms were just decorated (in fact they were still doing that in some rooms) and the furniture brandnew. It is very classical motel too, with the car just in front of the room, the mountains on the background. The owner was very friendly to us and proud to speak some Dutch words because of his childhood in South Africa.
The only critical point (or bad luck) was that we heard our neighbour yelling f..k all the time, even at night. I don't know if it was because the walls are thin, or that the man next door had an extreme loud voice (besides having a nervous breakdown or very bad mood), but this was a little annoying. Besides this misfortune we found the White Sands Motel a great and very affordable stay. If it had a pool (it was very hot!) it would even be, in our view, an option for several days.
Overall: nice place and good value.
