Military discount, older refurbished inn with large king for 44.00, all taxes included. No frills but best overall value in town. Clean room, no old mold or mildew odors, new carpets, would highly recommend to my tired fellow travelers. Owner is nice, informative and easy to work with. Has fridge, microwave but no coffee. Ice at office.

The desert in is a mom and pop sort of place, a redone motel from a bygone era. Place was safe, ok. Mostly clean - sheets, bedspread, carpet, sink and toilet. There is some mildew in the shower caulk and dust on the baseboards. The furniture is worn, but ok. It was worth what I paid for the night, but...

I made an unexpected trip thru Van Horn and stopped in at this hotel. The room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. You could tell the place has been updated and well taken care of. I didn't use the mini fridge but it was a nice extra. The manager was courteous and helpful. He recommended a couple of places to stop...

The manager was very cooperative. Booked into corner room. that was recently renovated. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Wi-fi worked fine. I slept well. No noise from surround rooms. There was one factor that may be of concern to some. There's a railroad track that runs behind the hotel. I heard three trains go through. First one at 1...

An excellent motel! Highly recommended. The management was outstanding with prompt and easy check-in, and with assistance with information upon my departure. The rooms were clean and smoke-free. TV was very good with a plethora of channels. I really like having a mini-fridge in the room. Towels were clean and soft. The bed was very comfortable. And the room was...

Rooms are very clean and come with microwave and mini fridge. Very friendly staff. Van Horn is a small town (so not a lot of attractions) but the restaurants we tried were great and inexpensive. We would stay here again!

This looks a little worn on the outside, but is a pleasant surprise on the inside, we always stay on our way to Tucson and find the owner friendly and helpful, not much for dinning in Van Horn, but a good overnight stop.

This hotel was good. The room was small but clean. It's not a luxury hotel but if you want a room that is not real expensive this is for you. The staff was nice and polite. The one downfall is it is next to the railroad tracks so you can feel and hear when a train passes.
