“Lovely experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Staff very friendly and attentive. Allowed dogs and semi truck parking. Big pluses in my book. Swimming pool was very clean, breakfast was decent. The property was well kept up and looked after. Felt safe in this hotel. Dining establishments with in walking distance and a Wal-Mart just done the road. I would highly recommend this hotel to other truck drivers in my company. Thought it was a relaxing stay. Thank you to all the staff.

John at the front desk provided excellent customer service while dealing with 2 other customers at front desk and 1 phone call. He also tried to help me with with my Smart Phone at the same time. The room (Jacuzzi) was excellent as well as the internet.

We always stay here because there is a great breakfast place right across the street and we know this place is good. You can tell this motel is older because the actually have tile in the bathroom around the tub/shower, but it is very very well maintained. Comfortable bed and good TV. What more do you need?

Room Tip: We like the second floor towards the back

We really appreciate the time you took out to let us know how your stay went. As you mentioned, we are not the "new kids on the block", however, we feel that we try harder to make sure that you have clean, comfortable accomodations when you stay. Thank you for the encouraging words and please call when you come back into town!!

We arrived late at the hotel and were greeted and assisted by a very helpful staff person. She accommodated our needs for the first floor with a nice handicapped room and made our check in quick. She made sure to sign us up for the rewards program, although we had been at another Best Western recently and were not apprised of it.

Alamogordo isn't exactly the French Riviera, but with a decent hotel like this, White Sands nearby, and Cloudcroft for a dinner drive, it made for a fun trip. The hotel was clean, the room had decent accommodations, and the desk personnel was particularly pleasant. They were super friendly and knowledgeable. I'd definitely stay here again.

Perhaps it was the timing, but this is not a $90 hotel. The pool was great. Customer service was very good. The smoking rooms had plastic butt receptacles in front and they smelled bad even to walk past. Besides that rooms were comfortable, nice beds, clean. check in is 3 and check out is 11.
