The place is cute, each unit has its own SMALL water heater, so it was quick to run out. Breakfast was included, but not very imaginative, all frozen pop-tarts and microwaveable things. This is a great place for $39/night, anything higher is them taking advantage. The front desk staff was not very intuitive, there were 2 of us checking in,... More

The first night we had no hot water, the front desk girl was most attentive and had the maintenance man there is a short time. He fixed the issue but the water wouldn't be warm until the next day. Front desk offered us another Roo. To shower in. The hotel was bought in the last year and is slowly being... More

The motel is alright. The air-condition and utilities in the room were very outdated and a bit scary to operate, but you get what you pay for. Showerhead was too low. Receptionist was very friendly. And the room was clean, but that's about it.

I booked through Hotels.com and was quoted $66 but was charged $86 and wasn't informed as to the extra charge. If it was a resort fee, I got robbed since this was no resort. I stayed in the building behind the office. it was a strip of rooms with cheap indoor furniture sitting outside so folks could smoke. The room... More

It upsets me when I see negative reviews based on a facility's age. Many older units still have years of serviceable life left for those who don't demand every modern convenience and do not wish to pay for them. Adobe Sands offers older updated units that are clean and comfortable at a rate unmatched by most in the area. We... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. I think you described our hotel and stay experience to the T. I just took over ownership of this property and am trying to remodel things in a way that will still keep our rates competitive yet also provide a nice stay for the local area. If I can keep customers preferring... More

The staff is friendly and helpful and attempt to make your visit first rate. However, the back row of rooms are very, very small and tight to move around in. If staying at this motel I would advise you to ask for the front portion of rooms which are more spacious. Internet is very lacking. I'm typing this review in... More

Hello, Thank you for your response. It sounds like overall you had a good stay. Yes our back row of rooms are our smaller and lower priced rooms. Front building rooms are twice the size for about $8 - $10 more. Our internet system is brand new commercial grade and professionally installed, this is the first time we are hearing... More

I stayed at the Adobe Sands for a few nights as I passed through Panguich, and truth be told, I throughly enjoyed myself! Sure it's on the older side & still being worked on but people, have you never had an ongoing, long project that you had to put into practical motion eventually? As with most things in life you...

The receptionist offhand. The external door did not lock from the inside. There were paint drops in the basin and on the toilet seat and on the floor. Looked dirty. Cracked floor tiles in very small bathroom. The chest of drawers was broken drawer fronts hanging off. The bed had a thin piece of foam under the sheet. We would... More

Remodeled? Felt/looked like going back to the 50's. Nowhere to hang any clothes. No dresser with drawers. One outlet and it had the old TV and refrigerator plugged into it. No curtain or door in front on the water heater. No phone. Small shower. Bath towels barely larger than the hand towels. No vending machines. The only good thing we... More

Hello, It sounds like you were expecting new instead of remodeled. I'm glad you liked the beds and the wifi as they are brand new. There has been an extreme remodel and we are continuing to bring this 1954 property to be the first in town brought up to 2016 standards. Before the remodel, there were brick walls and faux... More
