La Quinta Inn Las Cruces Mesilla Valley
Ranked #19 of 34 Hotels in Las Cruces
Reviewed June 14, 2012

The front desk was cheerful and efficient for check-in and checkout.

This hotel is very average, although it was a little better than I expected. Maybe that's due to the soutwest culture vs my northeast background.

The continental breakfast (6-9 wkdays; 7-10 wkends) was ok - standard low price hotel fare. The breakfast attendant was very good at stocking food and keeping it relatively clean. Seating is limited, so when there are a few families there, it can be difficult to get a table.

The most notable disappointment is that there is no elevator. There are only two floors, but you have to haul your luggage up steps if you're on the 2nd floor. 50# bags can be a chore as I'm not the young buck I used to be. We stayed there twice and ground floor rooms were not availble either time.

The pool looked ok, but we didn't use it. The room was decent. The shower was good. Cleanliness was good overall. It's only a few miles from Old Mesilla (Billy the Kid fame) for tourists. You can cover Old Mesilla in 1-2 hours easily.

We did not experience local restaurants, etc, as we were visiting family on the north side of town. My sister-in-law selected this hotel and I was concerned about the location from the relatives. It turned out we could travel on Valley Road easily between the south and north ends of town - probably easier and quicker than using the interstates.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the ground floor unless you don't mind carrying luggage up steps. Rooms on...

We stayed here many times and it was a nice place but it is sadly the last time. We asked for a non smoking room but were initially given a room in the smoking section which smelled HORRIBLY!!!! We were given a room in the non smoking section but the smell travels through the ducting. The halls are filthy. The upholstery on the furniture is dirty so are the walls and vents. The cable kept going out. Sad to see businesses not take pride in thier establishments any longer.

Older hotel a little run down, but not bad. Room was clean and adequately furnished. Our room has a refrigerator, Coffee Maker, and microwave. Close to restaurants, and other many other thing. Front desk staff were accommodating.

We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. I had my little dog with us (and she also enjoyed the stay!) The place is clean, the staff is friendly and I had a nice view to the court yard.

Las Cruces is my wife's hometown, so every winter as we pass through on the way to our winter home in Arizona we must spend the night in “Cruces”. We have stayed at this hotel several times because it is convenient and inexpensive. In order to stay here you must be able to tune out barking dogs and ignore the smell of pet urine. I don't know why they don't have a designated pet area so everyone doesn't have to share the joy with the traveling pets? It could be a pretty nice place.

We always stay here when spending the night in Las Cruces. The motel is older, but in good shape. I like staying in a room that leads out to the pool in the summer. If you miss the free breakfast, McD's is right next door. You can get good steaks/cocktails at Eddie's Bar and Grill across the street. It's pretty quiet on that side of town. The only downside: the sewage treatment plant that's down the road can make the night air a little stinky. :P
