“Good Holiday Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Nice Holiday Inn Express. A good place to stay, when youre visiting White Sands as I was.
Rooms are comfy and clean, staff friendly and efficient. Lots of dining options nearby. Didn't have breakfast there.
Would stay again.

On the night of our stay, that was the best deal for such a hotel. The clerk gave us an upgraded room, we didnt even ask for it. The rooms were spacious, nice bathrooms. The pool and jacuzzi were very nice, but not much privacy there, anyone walking in the hallway can see you.

This property is a cookie cutter suburban Holiday Inn Express with some above average embellishments, the bathroom was especially nice. It is clean, safe, new, and decently located. While the fare was the same as elsewhere, the breakfast room was tastefully decorated and spacious which made the Express breakfast enjoyable.

Staffing seems to be at a minimum so I only had the bare essentials of contact at check in and check out. Knowing about the hotel provided sleds would have saved me some money on my visit to White Sands.

If I returned to Alamogordo, I would likely stay here again though I can't place it above the neighboring Fairfield and Hampton Inns. Choose based on price and your loyalty preference.

Our stay was fine. We had booked the room with Reward points and had asked for a mountain view. We were told at check-in that they couldn’t do the mountain view, they were going to be pretty full. My husband mentioned it was his birthday and we were Platinum members so he asked for an upgrade. They did give us an upgrade—a room with a couch that overlooked the parking lot. That was okay, not what we had wanted but at least it was something. We never saw more than 20 cars in the lot from early afternoon until the following morning. Maybe all those reservations fell through? Or maybe they just didn’t want to give us a nicer room since we had booked a Rewards night? It was too bad but everything else was fine--nice clean room, good breakfast and quiet.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review. We are sorry we were not able to accommodate your request for a rear facing room. Unfortunately all of our king bed room standard or suite face the front of the building. Next time we will be more proactive to find out if you would like a 2 Queen bed room standard or suite, these 2 room types face the mountains. I am glad you had a good stay besides the room type. Thank you for being a Platinum Member we appreciate your business. Thanks for your stay!

This Holiday Inn is well kept, clean and homely. The hot complimentary breakfast was fresh, well stocked and refreshing. The rooms were well maintained, nicely done and diligently cleaned each morning. The hotel is close to several major restaurants in the area, and conveniently located at the intersection of the main arteries into the city.

The hotel provides complimentary sleds for use at the White Sands Monument. Make sure to grab these if you are headed in that direction, the kids will love it.

Stayed here for the 2nd night of a SW road trip and after a day at White Sands.

The hotel is adjacent to quite a vast selection of fast food and chain restaurants: Carino's, Chili's, McDs etc etc; so that solved the dinner problems. I'm not a big fan of the typical HIE breakfast (cinnabons and machine pancakes etc) which were par for the course.

Room was decent, with a small refrigerator and microwave. Priority Club Platinum recognition was just a couple bottles of water.

It's a good launching point for the various attractions near Alamogordo such as White Sands and the Space Hall of Fame. Can't say much sets this property apart from the other major chain hotels in the area, but it was a good stay.

While making the reservation by phone, the receptionist (female) was very polite and friendly. When checking in, the receptionist (male) was extremely helpful and nice. We were given sleds to borrow to use at White Sands and actually felt welcomed here in the city of Alamogordo.

The room was nice and clean. Great price too. Comfortable bed and pillows. It is so nice to stay in a place where you don't here doors opening or closing at all hours.

We will be visiting Alamogordo again, I can't say thank you enough for making us feel welcomed in your city.
