We went during the UFO Festival, when many hotels were sold out or had raised their prices so high, we didn't consider them as an option ($159 for Days Inn???). Mr. Bhaktal, the owner's son, offered the room with a queen bed for $59 a night. It looks like a motel built in the 1950s, one story with several separate buildings with about a dozen rooms per building.
The room was large enough to accommodate the bed, one night stand, and a table and one chair. It would have been nice to have 2 chairs.
The bathroom reminded me of a bathroom on a cruise ship, just a bit larger. It had been retiled around the tub and floor and was clean. The carpet needs shampooing, and the room smelled a bit musty, but I had read reviews and had taken Lysol spray. The door needs weatherstripping, as we could see daylight from around some of the doorjamb. I had taken insecticide and sprayed outside the entire door, and we never had bugs come in.
One parallel parks outside the room, making it very easy to unload baggage. I hadn't noticed that the hotel was adjacent to the hospital, until the Careflight helicopter landed less than 100 feet from our room. Very noisy, but it only flew twice during our 3 day stay, and I never woke up when it flew Sunday morning.
Some reviews said that they could hear everything from other rooms, but we heard nothing, except occasional water noises from other bathrooms. We were awakened by a weekend motorcyclist ( looked like weekend middle-aged bikers) gunning their motors at 5 a.m., setting off my car alarm.
Overall, a nice place to stay with gracious owners. Mr. Bhaktal, the owner, was doing the hotel laundry every morning when we left our room and greeted us each time he saw us. We would go back, if we visit Roswell again.
