I am from Las Cruces, and most of the lodging on Picacho Rd here is pretty run down. We traveled from Baja in January to Las Cruces and the first couple of days we were somewhere else. Finally we went to the Best Value to look at the rooms. What an awesome surprise. This place is great, clean, and the management was the most cordial of any I have encountered in recent years. My wife and I are preparing to travel back to Las Cruces again from Baja, Mexico and there is no doubt in my mind where I am going to stay In reading the other reviews (sour grapes), I cannot believe they were at the same inn. David and his wife are incredible and bend over backwards to insure your comfort. Picacho Rd used to be the truck route thru town. Now not so much, but don't pass this value. Free breakfast, and the interior grounds are really nice. Check it out and see for yourself. Ask and they will show you around and then you decide. I'll be back there in a few days. Pancake house next door and more food down the road less than 1/2 mile. Traveler, if you want " pretty" go pay 100 or more down the road, but if you want pure comfort, pleasant digs, with real folks, stay here. I will anytime in Cruces.
