We were returning home to Albuquerque by car from a wonderful vacation week in Arizona when we decided to stay the night in Las Cruces. We chose the Hampton Inn because a) we had stayed there in years before and had enjoyed it and b) it is very near the old town La Mesilla and our favorite New Mexican restaurant La Posta. At check-in the staff couldn't have been nicer (as in times before) and we got a king room on the second floor (as requested) near the outside stairs and parking (as requested). The room had had a complete recent makeover so everything was very fresh and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and the TV was big and clear. We had a great and quiet night's sleep and in the morning they served a complete hot breakfast in the lobby area which we enjoyed. That held us until an early lunch (green chile cheeseburgers) which we enjoyed in San Antonio, NM at the famous Owl Cafe.
