My friends and I stayed here for 1 night but would have loved to stay longer. The room we booked was upgraded on arrival and the service we received was exceptional. Drinks and snacks on arrival. Wonderful, relaxing pool area and amazing views of the mountains. I would recommend this place to everyone :)

This is the third time we have stayed. All I can say is it just keeps getting better and better. The owners treat everybody like family and go out of their way to make sure you are happy. My wife ann I no longer look when coming to Las Cruces but just call and book a room for the complete...

Wow, what a great place to stay. We recently headed out to Las Crucas and were pleased to reserve a room at Americas Best Value Inn in Las Crucas. We have stayed before and were happy to go back. Our last stay was great and if anything the Inn is getting better all the time. Great rate, CLEAN and SPACIOUS...

Don't judge a book by its cover. You need to see this place from the inside out. Interior pool and garden is very unique and nicely maintained by the owners. (make sure you get a inner courtyard room) Rooms were nice and beds were comfortable. If you are one that likes to find "a find", this will work for you....

I have stayed here several times and I return because of the stellar customer service. The owners are friendly and attentive and the courtyard is quite lovely. They brought us complimentary chips and salsa when we arrived. When I was out late working they checked on me, concerned because I was a woman traveling alone. The rooms are simple &...

Drove through Las Cruces with a friend and needed a place to stay for 1 night. We could not have asked for a more accommodating place. The owners are so friendly and the chips and salsa and fresh strawberries that are delivered were a nice surprise! If you are ever on a road trip through New Mexico stay here!!

Clean, safe and great value. The owners were present and attentive to our needs, and very friendly. I read all the Trip Advisor reviews, so I knew this was an older establishment. Rooms have been renovated and there is a lovely courtyard. Our king size bed slept just fine, but no, it does not have a pillow topped mattress. The...

Booked this place last minute based on reviews from TripAdvisor during a road trip in through the Southwest and am very satisfied. It was everything promised and more. Got a great price which included a free beverage, and complimentary chips, salsa, and fresh strawberries, on check-in and breakfast the following morning.. The staff is very nice and the rooms were...

The hotel has been fixed up, it looks like a handyman did all the work - definitely not professional repair work. The owner was real nice, but the area the motel is in is not exactly the safest part of town. For the price I expected a nicer place to stay. I will say that the owner is very nice...
