Clean rooms, friendly staff, great price, close to White Sands NM. I won't stay anywhere else in town. Good restaurants near by, central location. Trip Advisor wants me to write an essay but this place is as simple as the first two sentences.

I have been staying with Chuck and his wife off and on for the past 20 years. I have always received the greatest customer service and best treatment from them. The extra service comes in handy when we are delayed and unable to get there at a reasonable hour and they make the best accommodations to get us checked in...

I made an unexpected stop-over in Alamogordo. I prefer to stay in locally-owned places, so when I saw the neon sign of the White Sands, I knew I had found my refuge for the evening. The proprietors were friendly, the room was very nice, and clean, and there was a (large) mini fridge and microwave. In the morning, there was...

This was a great find for us thanks to tripadvisor reviewers. Ms. Betty was so nice and welcoming from the minute I stepped through the door. Our room #26 was on the back side and very quiet. Clean and Comfortable we could not have asked for more at a great price. We would definitely stay here again.

The first stop of our 8 day road trip, selected due to great reviews. It did not disappoint. Great service at check in, clean room, and many restaurant options in walking distance. The continental breakfast options were good, allowing us to get an early start on the road. The property is fenced so there is not any local foot traffic....

We stayed here a number of years ago and were very happy we came back. The owner and wife were very friendly. The outside of the motel is well kept up, freshly painted, very nicely landscaped, and in an excellent location. Our room was vey clean and comfortable. The breakfast room was very inviting with a good variety of items....

So cozy and perfect. Sushi restaurant in the same parking lot that is affordable. I felt safe and comfortable, lots of available channels on T.V. Water and heater work perfect. With such an affordable price I was surprised at how much care went into this place. Worth the stop!

When traveling we often like to try the classic roadside hotel so we spent a night at the White Sands Motel. Very friendly staff. The rooms are basic but clean. The prices are great! If you're on the way to White Sands National Monument you cannot go wrong with staying here. Give it a try.

Look fr the neon retro sign - but don't let it scare you. The place is pretty well kept up and clean. The reception desk was very nice and accommodating. We got a room in the back facing away from the road - so quiet. We visited in November and had not issues with getting a reservation the day of....

It's your basic old-style motel, but it's run by a family who obviously takes great pride in the appearance, maintenance, cleanliness, and amenities of the place. Breakfast was every bit as good as Days Inn, etc. Well worth the rate paid.
