This is one sucky, dump. Beware of the glorifying reviews on Trip Advisor and Yelp. It doesn't add up this is a scarry place! The place has mixed matched linens, towels that look dirty and picked up at a dumpster. There is something funny going on here at this place to get great reviews. Seriously. Looked at room and drove...

I am sorry you were disappointed with the room, had you raised these issues with staff during your 11 hour stay, we would have attempted to remedy the situation. The photos you included seem inconsistent with your statement that the towels "look dirty and picked up at a dumpster", however we will review laundry procedure.

This hotel deserves a high rating on TripAdvisor. The rooms are very clean and smell good too. We were welcomed with complimentary drinks, chips and salsa brought to our room. A perfect Southwestern midafternoon snack. We were thankful that our dog was also allowed as a guest. The lady who checked us in had a great attitude. My husband stays...

There are a lot of old motels on Picacho St., and some people might feel that the area is not as safe as elsewhere in town; if so, they are missing out on an opportunity to stay in a clean, friendly environment that is anything but the same old cookie-cutter chain motel. My wife and I own a small business...

This isn't the Hilton, but its a comfortable quiet and well-maintained older motel that makes a pleasant stop-over. The owners are friendly and helpful too. A good value.

The owner David would not rent a room to my partner and I, as he has a strict policy against renting to "locals." However, I believe that he just didn't want to rent a room to a gay couple based on his own bigotry. He originally lied to us, saying there were no rooms due to housekeeping problems. We pointed...

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Our policy is not to rent to locals. We refused service to this couple as one was from Las Cruces, the other from El Paso (originally NY). We do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexuality or other characteristic. We provided the contact for our regional manager, so they...

I stayed here for a wrestling tournament and I usually am easy to please. The doors use "keys" and not key cards. It is just too funky for me. The people were nice, but the rooms are old and not very well kept. The door did not seal and I could see light around the door at night. The breakfast...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about David and Elina and my experience at their little slice of home away from home. I found ABVI through TripAdvisor and reserved my room prior to embarking on a trip across country from Alabama to LA. I planned on staying in Las Cruces on the second leg of my drive after traveling from...

The owners treated us like family. Having got caught in a snowstorm (rare in LC) we showed up here tired and weary. David & Elina quickly made us feel at home. This was during a particularly busy time for them (snow got everyone by surprise). We liked it so much that we stayed over again on the way back from...
