“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

We stayed here for two nights enroute to Las Cruces and cannot recommend it highly enough in its price range. This is a friendly, service-oriented, spotless family run motel with an excellent separate building for a very well equipped and clean kitchen with tables, chairs and a TV. We found that the WiFi worked better in this area than in the room although it was fine for e-mails in the room. A laundry room was adjacent to this. It was very quiet when we were there so it was like having the place to ourselves. Free coffee and donuts in the office in the mornings although we made our own breakfast in the kitchen. We used the facilities well and enjoyed our stay very much. Very highly recommended!

Room Tip: Since the place was nearly empty we were given a family unit - two rooms with 3 double beds total co...

Writing from the Taylor Motel right now, free wifi, two clean double beds, a tile bath, excellent cable, no smoking smells, no charge for our dog, a fridge and microwave. Yes, the place is old, but it's been very decently refurbished with new carpet, paint. What's not to like for $32?? I'll repost if we don't sleep tonight, but so far it seems like a fantastic deal.

We had a great stay and experience at the Taylor. Each room is individually separated, meaning you will not hear any noise from other people. Each room also had it's own carport, which is very rare to find. The room was very clean and comfortable. We had our own heat and air conditioning units and the room stayed very pleasant throughout the night. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Van Horn. Very affordable and very clean!

I usually stay at one of the chain motels in Van Horn but had read a review for this motel and took a chance. It was great. The room was nice and clean, had a refrigerator, microwave, and TV with lots of channels. No swimming pool but the pool at the other motel was always too cold or had a bunch of little kids in it and I could never use it. This is an older motel but well kept, It does back up to the railroad tracks and trains do come through, but it really didn't bother me. Being an early riser when they started blowing there whistle at 6am it was no big deal. Just part of the charm of Van Horn. I would definitly stay here again!

Room Tip: If trains bother you this is not the place for you, the tracks are right behind the motel.

This single level renovated family-run hotel is an absolute gem for value, cleanliness,
comfort, and convenience in Van Horn, TX. In the past two years, I 've stayed at this
motel over 30 days in a room with one queen bed, refrigerator, microwave, and
individually controlled a/c and heat . This retro property has been renovated by the
Martinez family and features car ports and hence, no shared walls between most
rooms (making for quiet). Rooms are clean and comfortable and in 2011 there is now
a new Guest Laundry (coin washer, dryer) and a spacious Guest Kitchen complete with
stove/oven, large refrigerator, microwave, commercial sink, and even a large flat
screen TV! Although the train tracks are close by this property, it seems that their
passage is infrequent enough (for me) not to disturb a restful/relaxed space.
Of the many lodging options in Van Horn, this one is the BEST, especially for those
who like to cook for themselves and stretch their dollars.
