Ok, first off, I must say that I stayed here over a year ago. I was doing research on Pecos hotels and felt compelled to review this motel. That should give you an idea about the force of the impression that this motel left on me. First off, it is in Pecos. Pecos is not nice. Sure it is about as far as I will drive in one day from El Paso, but it is run down. This motel mirrors the town. It is not horrible, but is certainly not great. It is equivalent to any run-down old motel off the highway that is mostly frequented by truckers. Think "No Country for Old Men" That might not be the case of this motel, but it is equivalent to that image. The motel is just that-a motel. Your door opens to the outside. Given the remoteness of this town, it just doesn't feel really safe at night outside your door, especially given the other motel guest's appearances. You do get breakfast at the restaurant, but the restaurant is old and the quality of the food is only mediocre- at best. I saw a huge bug (just a beetle of some sort) in the place and it just felt a little grimy. It wasn't particularly dirty, but it just had an old grimy feel. The rooms are similar. Mostly just old, but my bed was in disrepair, tilted to one side. Not super clean either, again grimy. Would I stay here again? Not for the prices they charge. I would pay not more than about $60 a night for this place. If you can get it for lower than that, then you should be expecting a place like this. Otherwise, I would avoid it at all costs. It does make you feel like you are in the wild west if you like that kind of a feeling. It makes it plainly obvious that you are in the middle of nowhere-a once booming area, that is quickly becoming a ghost town. My suggestion: stay away unless absolutely necessary.
