“Great Value! !”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Simple, convenient & affordable. I prefer softer beds but otherwise all else was OK. Great location- close to food. Plus, all rooms are on first floor. So no hauling bags upstairs! Heat &TV worked ok. Great Value!

Room Tip: No pool or fitness center. Web site requires some rating even if none.

Reviewed 15 September 2013

The is a typical 50's style motor court, and not much updating has been done over the years. But every thing is well maintained and functional. Easy access from I-25, located on California St, which is also US-60. If all you need is an inexpensive place to crash and take a shower on a quick overnight stop in Socorro,

Room Tip: The closer the room is to the office, the stronger the wi-fi signal

Reviewed 10 June 2011

This is a no frills, small old motel, along one of the car routes used before the Interstate system; but unlike many such motels, this is still being cared for fairly well. It has not been retrofitted or undergone any noticeable major refurbishment, but it is clean and an intact hotel. The doors work well, the bed is of acceptable comfort, etc; it's just an old hotel --- though the paint job is not too old.

It's a great choice for the experience that such motels can provide, but it is small. The parking court is small and the rooms are small, but they have all you need, including small flat screen TV's and small bars of soap; and it is conveniently located on a main road through town and just off the road headed out to the VLA.

If you like comforts, newness, or have a large family, then this is probably not the hotel for you. For people that love the experience of old roadside motels, this is a bit different from the regular, and is probably for you.

The free WiFi is slightly spotty, but available. There's an old style coffee and breakfast diner with cool signage just down the road on the same side.
