Delightful hotel. We were greeted by the very friendly staff on arrival. Our room was big and very clean. Garden area with fish pond and a lovely sitting area with a couple of BBQs.The owner is an Australian and his wife Indonesian who are very friendly. We were given salsa and crackers on arrival, a nice touch. This is a biker friendly motel and we were able to park our bike in a secure site out of view of the road. Good value for money. Would stay again.

The service from the staff was ok, the greeted us and made our check in really fast, the surprise was when we got to our room, the room looked like it was remodeled recently but still look very old and dirty, the brought us some chips and salsa, which it was a very good detail from the staff. Ultimately we did not feel safe and we decided to stay there for 1 night and then cancel our reservation. The location of the hotel is a really rough neighborhood according to the locals. We definitely will not stay there in the future.

It is unfortunate you did not raise your concerns during your stay, rather than 3 months later on the internet. We regret your stay was less than expected.

This hotel is much more than a standard America's Best Value in: it is an oasis in the desert, providing an inviting atmosphere, with a beautiful koi pond and several BBQs and sitting areas in the court yard. The hotel is lead by the owners themselves and reflects their creativity and love and care for their guests. They just recently created some beautiful mosaics at the entrance and the front desk and "The Biggest Chili", which is also their creation is definitely still a magnet for tourists around the world. I haven't met another hotel here in the US with that much charm!

I guess we fell into the group that didn't love the Big Chile Inn. We stopped for one night on a trip from CA to Mississippi. We asked for a rollaway bed, but instead they went to our room and made up the sofa bed. That was fine for my teen, although it had a toothbrush in it. (gross!) The staff was very pleasant and accommodating, I just found the whole place somewhere between quaint and tacky, more tacky. The breakfast was pretty sparse and by then I just felt kind of yucky about the place. I wanted to like it, I like to support the locals. I just didn't.

When we prepared the bed while you were unpacking, no toothbrush was found. When we asked later if everything was ok, you said yes. It is unfortunate you were unable to contact us during your stay, rather than advise us on the internet of your concerns. Now all we can do is offer our apologies.

For others reading this review, our continental breakfast comprises 4 cereals, danish, muffins, toast, 2 juices, coffee and tea.

Stayed here one night when traveling to Hatch, NM, for the annual Chile Festival. The "Big Chile Inn" in Las Cruces is a fun and well-kept property with great hospitality. The owner was very welcoming and happy to provide info on local things to see and do. Out front is the "world's largest chile pepper" sculpture, with lots of chile facts. In back is a clean, relaxing pool, a koi pond and collection of desert plants. Strongly recommend.
