“superb downtown option.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Older style single storey courtyard motel in midtown region. Friendly onsite owners and superb large super clean rooms with fridge and microwaves. Very quiet and good value rates makes this an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Rooms along the back are further from road noise

We pulled up to the Royal Host Motel to see a lady sweeping the already immaculately clean parking lot. She smiled and waved at us as we parked and immediately led me to the small office (complete with sweet and friendly motel kitty) to check in. Afterward, she was back outside dusting and cleaning.

We stayed in a very clean and large family room with three beds, a fridge, microwave, large TV, and table and chairs with plenty of room for five of us to sprawl out and relax after a very long day on the road. There were little touches in the room and on the modest grounds that indicated how well loved and cared for this little motel is -- flowers in a vase, nice chairs outside every room, decorative pots near the office, etc. The Royal Host definitely felt like a home away from home, and the people who run this business obviously care very deeply about the motel and having happy customers. If I ever return to Las Cruces, you can bet that I'll be staying at the Royal Host, do doubt about it.

We stayed at the Royal Host Motel for 3 nights. They advertise internet service available in your room but I could not get it once! The carpet in the room was filthy, never once did I see the office open and we had to call one of the girls who clean the rooms to make a payment. Also saw a baby roach in the bathroom. The neighborhood is not good and the attached resturant is over-priced.

We were in town for a graduation and it was short notice so most hotels were booked. We were at the point of just staying anywhere. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor we decided this would be the best of the available choices. We were plesantly surprised. The room was clean and spacious and the front desk clerk/housekeeper (this is a really small hotel) was very nice and helpful. I would stay here again!

We were driving through new mexico and decided to stay here for one night while we visited White Sands. We new before hand about his little motel from other reviews here in trip advisor. We had a great stay overall, it was quiet, safe, SUPER well lit, clean, and we only had to pay 55 dlls for the night. Please don't expect top notch service and keep in mind this is a small motel. All the amenities you need will be there and you will have a good night sleep. As someone previously mentioned the motel is only one story so we were able to park the car right in front of the room. The motel is very good for the value. The room was clean, and had a small tv, microwave, a refrigerator, and free internet access. The restroom was also clean and they provided a couple of towels and soap. The heater worked perfectly and we had no problems with it. The place is easy to find with close access to freeway. We went for a meal for the restaurant on property, it is a decent diner that seems to be visited a lot by locals. the overall experience was good so I will recommend this little place for someone who has things to do and needs a place to sleep.

what a wonderful little hotel . Check in was easy and we had a small pet with us. We had a no smoking room and it was wonderful. The pool no longer in service should be turned into a gated area for the dogs that travel . That would be the one thing I would change. We will be back.
