Every descriptive word I can think of for this motel starts with a D: drab, dingy, decay, dirty, depressing. We needed a place to stay while heading home from a long road trip. They asked if we wanted non-smoking or smoking and we replied "non," however, the first room reeked of stale smoke. They were friendly at the front desk... More

The Big Chile Inn is one of those places that bring back memories of childhood travel with my parents.It is an older style motel with a Ma and Pa owned feel. The rooms were quite comfortable and of a very nice size. They have a refreshing pool in their award winning atrium area. There is also a nice gazebo in... More

Kinda of a old school motel. But very good prices and they allow pets. The rooms are very spacious and they have microwave and fridge and plenty of space. They have a cool courtyard and a pool. Would definitely recommend this establishment to my friends

This place looks like it once was good, but they must have sold off the lobby furniture. I felt like I walked into the visiting room of a low security prison. It seems like people were living there as some of the rooms had security screens on them. If it weren't so late at night, we would have gone somewhere... More

Hospitality ends when you check-in Rude, Crude, Staff will make your stay as inhospitable as they have done to previously long term guest's. This Corp. has lied to myself and 24 other long term guest, forcing a financial hardship on all including 9 VETERAN"S, on a fixed income.

We chose this motel because we wanted a cheap motel for one night on the way through knowing we would not spend a lot of time in the room, the room was clean and comfortable and there is a nice garden with chairs and barbeque area and swimming pool. For the price we have no complaints at all.

Funky giant chili out front. Nice little courtyard out back but could use some cleaning up. Some things need improving but I think that's where they are heading. The price was reasonable for the stay.

This little place is definitely a hidden gem with plenty of character. We were passing through on a road trip and decided to stop for the night. David treated us really well as well as all other staff. This is an older hotel but I wasn't expecting the Ritz-Carlton. Price was great and room was comfy. Free breakfast was a... More

When we arrived things looked okay for an affordable place to spend the night while passing through Las Cruces. After driving around the side and back of the facility looking for the closest place to park near our room, the motel looked rougher. Maybe there was some work being done in back and maybe it was just a mess. I'm... More
