Leaving later than expected and forgetting about the time change between Arizona and New Mexico, we arrived quite like at about 12:30 AM. How were we greeted? With free drinks, a personal tour of our room and then chips, salsa, and grapes delivered to our room all for free. WOW! I've never had an experience like that, even at 5...

Go out of your way to stay here! Ditto to all the other good reviews; one of the best motel values we have enjoyed in years. Outside is a bit unimpressive (except for the world's biggest chile/chili !), but wait until you see the garden: often source of some of the fresh breakfast fruit -the koi pond is still under...

We selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not surprised by our experience. The room was very economical. It was spacious and clean, even though the decor and fixtures are a bit out dated. We had no problem with the location of the hotel. We enjoyed the funky, fun decor on the grounds. The courtyard, with the...

Booked last minute on our way from Vegas to San Antonio based on reviews. Super professional and friendly staff! They have the world's largest chile pepper in front and give you Chips and Salsa- pretty cute and charming!!! Our room was clean and comfy-what more could you ask for at a really cheap price. I would stay here again.

I passed through Las Cruces on my way to see White Sands and read good reviews about this place, so I booked it. The rooms are huge, furbished in standard US motel kind of way: king-size bed, fridge, microwave, a small couch, table and one or two chairs. I did neither expect nor need more for just one night. My...

First impressions go a long way with this motel. From the moment we stepped into the lobby everything was clean, bright and welcoming. Customer service is taken seriously; every staff member had a smile and warm greeting. Located on Motel Avenue amid rundown 70’s (or earlier era) motels but this America’s Best Value Inn is not like it’s neighbors. It’s...

I read that and thought the "chips and salsa" thing was untrue, but they really do bring it. The two people who were running it, a friendly Aussie guy and a nice Asian lady, were both helpful and friendly. They seemed to treat the place like it was their own house. Very clean, good location, no issues at all about...

The staff in this place is fantastic! We were shown to our room and brought a plate of chips, salsa, and grapes. Then the front desk clerk knocked on the door and offered to show my kids the pool where the koi were being kept while a new pond is being built. We were made to feel like we were...

Just arrived and all of the excellent reviews are true, this place is great! From a drink and a snack, to escorting us to the room and making sure we have what we need, even offering the laundry room!! We have stayed in many hotels around the world and the service of this one is tops! The rooms are really...

Stopped here on a 5 week road trip across the SW US with husband and kids. The owners were very gracious and friendly, showed us two room options prior to booking, bought chips and salsa to our room, and made an excellent recommendation for dinner at Marachi's. The room was clean with great curtains that kept out the light for...
