Great service. Really friendly and serviceminded staff. A nice gester was to get nachos and drinks when we arrived. Clean and nice room. The breakfast was a bit poor but ok. The garden and poolarea was really nice with flowers and decoration.

Pleased that we found the reviews on here before hand. We certainly were not disappointed. Enjoyed our breakfast in the patio area this morning after a comfortable evening. Great hosts - what a nice touch with the welcome of nachos after our arrival. Appreciated our room looking onto the spacious courtyard area.

Most phenomenal value accomodations we have ever encountered. From entry to exit our stay was met with genuine warmth and comfort. The proprietors maintain a wonderful environ from stem to stern including many enchanting little touches such as the garden and pastel linens. We checked in after a long day on the road and were greeted with cold drinks and... More

The owner-managers, always present, are graciously hospitable, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the desert botanical garden beside the pool in the central courtyard is delightful. The big-name chains are closer to the interstate by a few blocks, but that's their only advantage over this gem.

One my way cross country I came across this gem and loved it. I checked in at 1am and was met by a hospitality that I never expected and always... More

We arrived about 1:30pm and the room was ready. We got a nice two Queen size bedroom on ground floor. The courtyard was lovely to sit out and enjoy a breeze. Our trip was a stay over on our way home from Texas after a surprise 90th Birthday party for my Mom. I had mentioned it to Elina upon arrival.... More

This is way more than the standard motel. It's a place where the personal touch of the owner, Alina, is felt from the lobby to the rest of the building. An internal yard is a real showcase of a large variety of desert plants carefully grown, you can look at them while sitting under a gazebo that shades you form... More

On a trip where my group was just needing an adequate place to stay, America's Best Value Inn was a very pleasant surprise. The courtyard is creatively decorated and definitely gives the hotel a great atmosphere. The grills in the courtyard made it very convenient to cook and the staff and the family that run the hotel are so pleasant... More

After spending the day at White Sands I had planned on getting dinner in Las Cruces and continue driving north for a few more hours . We had a coupon for this motel and with a young son I thought we would drive by to see if it looked ok . From the moment we arrived in the spacious lobby... More
