The White Sands Motel is yes-- nostalgic in that it is a roadside motel with a vintage feel. But vintage does not fully describe it. We had a spotless room, comfortable beds, fast wireless and a speedy, effortless check-in. The "vibe" of this motel is thoroughly restful and homey, and you can just tell that behind the scenes, there's a...

What a great, little, cozy hotel! The people who work there work very hard and are very nice. They go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Warning to women though...no blow dryers! "B.Y.O-Blowdryer : )" The bathroom was nice and it had a "homey" feeling. They have a nice little breakfast offered...

We stopped here on our family road trip vacation. Our first stop was White Sands National Monument. I had read the reviews about White Sands Motel and figured we should check it out, in an attempt to stay away from chain businesses. I'm so glad we did. We got there in the evening, requesting a room with two beds for...

I just finished browsing the most recent reviews. Most of which are right on the money, this is a great little family ran Motel. It's not a chain, don't expect a chain atmosphere. It is very clean, my bed was very comfortable, the A/C worked great. Yes, the bathroom was a bit small, but I am 5/10 and the shower...

This hotel is odeally situated for visiting the White Sands National Park, as well as the nearby air force bases. There was a warm welcome at check-in and the motel was clean, comfortable and very well kept. It was reasonably priced too.

Our family of 4 (2 boys, 11 & 13) stayed in the family room before our day at White Sands. We arrived late and check-in was a breeze! My kids, who are quite spoiled when it comes to hotel stays, were quite shocked when we pulled into the motel. However, as soon as they saw the room, and the 3...

Not worth the prize. This motel charges like any other big hotel, you would think gotta be good. Well, no. Hard beds, really tiny shower, not enough shampoo and bar soap that crumbles badly,no pets allowed but yet they do walk their own dog in the common areas. I didn't like at all.

Forget the big chain/big name hotels and motels. Stay here during your visit, you won't regret it. Marc and 6inasuburban really captured the essence of this property. I'm going to do a little different type of review from my others: retro/vintage feel (the tile in the bathroom was peach; who cares, it was spotless!) relax outside your room on the...

We see White Sand Motel as excellent, not because he would have zero defects, but because its quality is excellent compared to its price. In fact, it is very close to zero defects! Welcome is remarkable. The decor recalls the old America, but the rooms are completely renovated, very clean and furnished with taste in light wood. The breakfast is...

We love to stay out of the way places and try new things. This place is great. We stayed in room 7 which has 3 queen beds, perfect for our big family. COMPLETELY spotless and clean. Very great value. The owners were super nice and we called ahead and they cranked up the AC so the room was cool before...
