Had the best bang of my life here. I really enjoyed how bouncy the bed was with my hip thrusts. The shower could have had a bit of a grippier flooring since I slipped and the lady I was with died but otherwise good.

I held my breath when I pulled into the decrepit-looking parking lot surrounded by well-worn buildings. But when I saw a room, I knew that my $40 (including tax) would be a great deal! The TV had 50 channels; the Internet was strong; the microwave and fridge let me walk across the street to the well-stocked supermarket and relax. (Socorro... More

We spent almost five weeks in this motel while our home was unlivable. It is old, but is recently painted and well maintained. Small microwave and fridge. Good hot shower. Wifi is free. We could have used a bit more room cleaning, as we had clean sheets and towels only one time, after two weeks. There is coffee,cereal and cookies... More

Simple, convenient & affordable. I prefer softer beds but otherwise all else was OK. Great location- close to food. Plus, all rooms are on first floor. So no hauling bags upstairs! Heat &TV worked ok. Great Value!

The is a typical 50's style motor court, and not much updating has been done over the years. But every thing is well maintained and functional. Easy access from I-25, located on California St, which is also US-60. If all you need is an inexpensive place to crash and take a shower on a quick overnight stop in Socorro,

This is a no frills, small old motel, along one of the car routes used before the Interstate system; but unlike many such motels, this is still being cared for fairly well. It has not been retrofitted or undergone any noticeable major refurbishment, but it is clean and an intact hotel. The doors work well, the bed is of acceptable... More
