We chose this motel because we wanted a cheap motel for one night on the way through knowing we would not spend a lot of time in the room, the room was clean and comfortable and there is a nice garden with chairs and barbeque area and swimming pool. For the price we have no complaints at all.

Funky giant chili out front. Nice little courtyard out back but could use some cleaning up. Some things need improving but I think that's where they are heading. The price was reasonable for the stay.

This little place is definitely a hidden gem with plenty of character. We were passing through on a road trip and decided to stop for the night. David treated us really well as well as all other staff. This is an older hotel but I wasn't expecting the Ritz-Carlton. Price was great and room was comfy. Free breakfast was a... More

When we arrived things looked okay for an affordable place to spend the night while passing through Las Cruces. After driving around the side and back of the facility looking for the closest place to park near our room, the motel looked rougher. Maybe there was some work being done in back and maybe it was just a mess. I'm... More

I am a regular now. They won me over with a great price, a comfortable quiet room, and they never forgot my name. Davis and Crew were always cheerful, friendly and helpful. I travel with communications gear and extras. Internet service was always available and dependable. The rooms clean and comfortable, and they always asked if I needed anything special.... More

I stayed at the Big Chili for 2 nights. The room was clean, comfortable, and surprisingly large. The staff, especially Elina, went out of their way to accommodate. I also enjoyed the garden area with pavilion and coy pond. It is evident that the staff takes pride in the colorful history of the motel. The only negative was the intermittent... More

I have to tell you, in all honesty, that I normally travel with a travel trailer and stay in it at campgrounds. However, this was a last minute trip and my objective was to find hotels that offered inexpensive accomodations (trying to get as close to camp site prices as possible). In Las Cruces, I was going to spend two... More

I chose this place because it had very good reviews and I actually wanted to see the largest chili. The chili did not disappoint but I was with the overall place. The service was great from the staff. I think the manager's name was Dave. He was very nice and made sure the room had fresh towels in it. The... More

Older motel, interesting history and the room was very clean. A great bargain for the price and I will definitely stay here again when traveling through Las Cruces. They also serve a Continental breakfast which mainly consists of cereal, bagels, and muffins. Coffee was good.
