First off, be aware you never need a reservation for Socorro. The only times I can imagine Socorro coming close to selling out is during move-in or commencement at New Mexico Tech, and considering you're only an hour from ABQ, probably not even then. For the night I stayed in Socorro, the Econolodge wanted $65 on its Web site but was advertising a $35 walk-up rate. And that was one of the MORE expensive walk-up rates in town. So don't be a sucker.
Anyway, the San Miguel Inn. I paid $49 and got a decent room, but didn't see all the other walkup rates until after committing here. So maybe I overpaid a bit. But I have no other complaints. The furnishings were a bit dated, but my room, and the rest of the property, were decently maintained. The heat and hot water took a while to fully come on but eventually worked. The TV was an older model but got dozens of channels. There's a fridge and a microwave. The wifi worked fine. No strange carpet stains, noises or anything else unpleasant.
They have coffee in the morning but nothing I'd seriously call breakfast. You have to ask the front desk for ice. Smith's grocery store is across the street and Wal-Mart and several fast food joints are within walking distance.
I regret not trying to drive a harder bargain, but I have definitely paid more for a hotel room and gotten less.
