3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

On a budget, this place does well. For being the oldest hotel/motel in Rio Rancho, the staff was very attentive. Rooms and grounds show their age, but it worked for me. The cost justified the limited polish and newness found in other hotels. Passing thru..give it a try!

First of all I got charged twice for the room at 2 different rates. From the pictures online it looked like a hotel and it was a motel. The bed was super hard and there was no blanket.

We actually live down the street from the hotel and checked in to the hotel to have a weekend with a pool and air conditioning. The first room we checked into didn't have a microwave or refrigerator, I called the front desk and asked if we could switch rooms or if we could have a microwave brought to our room.... More

No hot water, facility is ideal for large families. Staff were indifferent. I don't think they noticed any thing going on around them. Restaurant was closed for the holiday, which is why we were there.
