Staying at the newer chain Motels can have its advantages but I love it when you come across a little gem of an independent old Motel like this one. The complex was very well maintained, and even the parking lot was clean. The room, though maybe a little on the small side was more than adequate for my needs. Most... More

I stay here every time I come to Alamogordo because of the hospitality. Chuck is the owner and operator and you've got to shake hands with this guy. The rooms are clean, affordable and conveniently located. I highly recommend this motel. Chuck and his wife work hard to meet your needs whatever they may be. They treat you like family... More

For those looking for an old school roadside motel, the White Sands Motel is a solid option. It's clean and basic. Friendly staff. They have sleds to borrow when going to White Sands, which is a nice touch. Might want to stay towards the back of the hotel to avoid traffic noise.

I try to give my business to the smaller old mom and pop type motels rather than the big chains whenever possible. After a quick search on Trip Advisor I found The White Sands Motel. The room was large, clean and quiet and the staff is friendly. It will be my first choice the next time I'm in Alamogordo.

This place fits my category of "time machine." Older property, but clean, updated, quiet and cheap. Owner-operator is very accommodating. If I could find a place like this to stay on all my trips, I would be very happy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Only four stars because of minimal breakfast and the whole place is pretty spare, but for the cost it... More

We needed a place to stay for one night while visiting White Sands National Monument. We found this place on trip advisor. When we first pulled up we didn't have a good feeling but were pleasantly surprised once in our room. It was extremely clean and newly remodeled. Breakfast was the typical danish, bagels, yogurt etc. The staff are extremely... More

Loved this place, Bonnie went the extra mile to make sure that you were comfortable. Great rooms, very comfortable and an excellent continental breakfast. One of the best motels on our 5 week trip, close to a reasonable selection of places to eat.

We stayed for three nights. Reminiscent of a classic Route 66 motel. Clean and comfortable, friendly staff. Very reasonable price, good value for the money. We would stay there again. Convenient to restaurants. Great alternative to generic chain motels.

We really enjoyed our one night here. Sure it's just a roadside motel but it's very nice and far better value than other options nearby. The owner clearly takes a lot of pride in his place inside and out. It's been updated recently, was spotlessly clean and fresh smelling, and was very cheery inside and not at all depressing or...
