Finding a place to stay between San Antonia and Albuquerque.

I will be traveling via greyhound from San Antonio, TX to Albuquerque, NM. The problem is that the whole thing takes around 19hrs. Does anybody have any advice regarding a interesting place I could spend a night in to break the trip into two pieces? I don't care if the place is small or large, as long as it offers some charm and something to do.

Thanks.

The logical place to stop is El Paso. The bus station is downtown where there are some hotels within walking distance or short taxi ride. El Paso is safe but Ciudad Juarez is not. The restored Plaza Theater downtown gets good reviews so you could check to see if anything is on for your travel date.

The next place to stop would be Las Cruces however the Greyhound schedule shows arrival at 9:25 p.m. so you wouldn't be able to see anything.

With the cost of an overnight stay added to the bus fare wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to fly?

If you have some flexibility, Southwest Airlines is showing flights for as low as $118 later this month. You can only look for SWA flights using their own website; Orbitz, Kayak, etc. will not work.

I"m with Sebastian on this one. Looks like the cheapest fare via bus is $89. Couple that with an overnight stay...you could fly there more cheaply! Check out Southwest Airlines.
