After a long drive from Taos, NM via Roswell, Brownfield was about as far as we wanted to drive for the night. There are few places in the area..overpriced major chains..and a few "hole in the wall" private enterprises that looked "interesting".
We stumbled on Crystal Palace Inn. The office was long closed when we got there, but the proprietor was happy to help get us into a room. What a pleasant surprise we got upon opening the door. The room was large and clean and decorated in a rather interesting way. Don't get me wrong...it wasn't the Hilton, but it was many notches above other inexpensive places I've stayed. In fact, we thought it was nicer than a few of the higher dollar places we stayed on the same trip.
Bottom line... Don't let the kitschy name fool you. It's a very nice inexpensive place to throw down for the night.
