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...

You won't be disappointed. Extremely clean rooms, they were re painted and re modeled not to long ago. Your room has a microwave and a refrigerator along with wifi and cable for 59$. It's right next to chili's and IHOP, about a mile from the zoo. I would stay again. Just only down fall, don't count on a "continental breakfast"...

This was the perfect place for our family trip to New Mexico. They were easy to work with, our room was spotless and the kids were happy. It made a good jumping off point for exploring the rest of the area, close to Cloudcroft and Ruidoso. The mini fridge was great to keep cold drinks for the evenings. I will...

The White Sands Motel is a good value for money stay not too far from the center of Alamogordo. Rooms nice and clean with all the amenities you can expect in a smaller motel. Area and motel rooms seem to be refurbished quite recently.

My companion insists in opening a window to sleep comfortably, which she had to because the ac was exceptionally noisy in such a small space. I could hear the night traffic while somewhat asleep though we were on the side where the lobby is located, just a couple doors down. We stayed in Alamogordo the longest for White Sands' Moonlight...

Our room was small but spotless. It was updated and had a microwave and fridge. Our room was set back from the highway so it was quiet. It was a good value and I would stay here again. The continental breakfast is skimpy -- just cereal and muffins-- but ok for the price. With the money you save, you can...
