The pickings are pretty slim in Socorro. This inn was nothing fancy, but it got the job done and was clean. We came for a soccer tournament and when discussing accommodations with other parents, it sounds like our place was pretty nice compared with theirs. We appreciated the complimentary breakfast including a waffle-maker, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, muffins, oatmeal, cereal, juice,... More

My husband & I went to Socorro to birdwatch during the Bosque del Apache annual crane migration. We were excited as it was our first time there. On 11/7, I called Vantage Hotels to plan the trip as we had a $100 certificate. While I was on hold with Marcie, she contacted this Best Value Inn & shortly thereafter gave... More

I stayed here for a month. Had a problem with locking my door, notified the manager and before I returned later that day, it was fixed. Whenever I had a problem (someone once parked in my spot), it was quickly remedied. Room was clean, staff very hospitable. Breakfast adequate. Yes, I will stay here again on my next visit to...

For the price, I thought this room was pretty good. It had been updated recently with granite counters and shower stall, nice amenities, a very comfortable king size bed and attractive decor. Room had microwave, fridge, iron/ironing board and coffee maker. It was the same price as one of the very old, funky looking motels across the street.

We have stayed here several times on our way to Tucson. This time, the undermount sink was no longer mounted. It was being held up by the drain! The bug in the bathroom didn't help and the place could stand some paint. For the price, I would expect better.

I visit Socorro often an have explored the options. This is, hands down, the best accommodations value in the area. The staff are exceptional; professional and helpful. Rooms are clean and tidy. Breakfast provides a nice selection. And there is 24 hour complementary access to the Socorro Fitness Center next to the hotel. For a business stay or an overnight... More

I would not stay in this hotel unless you have no other options. Not worth the price. Run down. Dusty, dirty. The front desk staff is friendly at night (not in the morning). Only stayed here because there were no other options. Never again.

Stayed here for a week while in town for a workshop and will not be returning. The hotel is desperately in need of some basic maintenance; I had to move out of the first room they gave me because the door wouldn't shut properly and didn't lock. The second room at first seemed adequate, but after a few days I... More
