Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed at this motel during my New Mexico trip. It is a large motel and it has a swimming pool, which was nice for a refreshing swim. Alamogordo is not really interesting and the stay at this motel was just a stopover. The breakfast was okay, although the coffee was served in styrofoam cups.

We has a great experience here. The staff was so nice and they made sure we were comfortable. We did laundry and a staff member even gave us a dollar in quarters from his own pocket. We had a little problem with our water not being hot and it was taken care of immediately. The breakfast was good.

I had a great visit to the Magnuson Hotel. The staff was extremely friendly, and got me checked into the room fairly quick. It's in a nice location along the Alamogordo business district. The only complaint I have was people using the ice maker at 5 am outside my room.

No doubt the rates at this motel are great, but you kinda get what you pay for. The rooms are spacious but the decoration and the bedding would appreciate a new life. Breakfast is on the "little choice" side and you should come in early if you'd like a fruit as they seem to be scarce. The people at the...

Very nice motel. Looks like it has recently been remodeled. Pet Friendly. Don't remember the man who checked us in (Jerry?). He was great. Very helpful. We made friends with our neighbor and visited with them each night. Neat and comfortable.

We reserved a two queen beds a week in advance. When we go to our room. It was one bed and a nasty pull out couch and didn't even have sheets. We had to go beg for extra blankets and towels. The counter person just said, I don't make the website when we said we were falsely advertised.
