I stayed in this property 5 nights and used it as a base for visiting Carlsbad Caverns & Guadalupe. I just read Iron Rooster's review, and it sounds so familiar and accurate. However, these things didn't bother me. No question that most of the items in the room are worn-out and old, but still functional. The bed was adequately firm, the TV was fine and had a decent selection of stations, the heating worked, the refrigerator worked, the place is clean. I wasn't bothered by the road noise at all (and I am a light sleeper), and considering that almost all the motels are on that same road, I don't think this is a criterion for choosing a motel.
I was bothered that this hotel didn't honor the rates it publishes in the AAA tour book, but still, the rate is low.
If you're looking for someplace with newer furniture, with light fixtures where the sockets aren't dangling from the lamps, with a nicer looking bathroom, etc., this isn't the place for you. But if you just need basic accomodations, it will be adequate.
