We live only 70 miles from Alamogordo, but we wanted to attend a concert there and didn't want to drive home late at night so we decided to stay at the Super 8 Motel. It was a wonderful surprise. Although the outside showed us nothing special, one step inside the door made us feel as if we'd entered a new building. This is an extremely modern and up-to-date Super 8 that has all the amenities a larger or more upscale motel or hotel might have. The service was superb. The rooms, hallways and lobby are newly decorated with really nice carpeting and tile, the curtains and drapes are quite modern as well as the paint on the walls and the bedspreads. We had a flat screen TV in our room with DirecTV access, a real plus. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of this motel. We recommend it.
