An absolute great place to stay! I stayed for a couple months while in town for work. I booked into this hotel as soon as I had the opportunity. Elaine (The Owner) is an amazing lady, enjoyable to talk with and very hospitable. The rooms are super clean, well up kept and quiet. The DirecTv channels were an added bonus....

We stopped but no rooms were available...that being said we visited for a long time about the attractions and the area. Next time I will book ahead and definitely stay here. If your going thru you need to stop at the drug store recommended by the hotel's owner. They have an old fashion soda fountian. The treats were awesome.

on our drive from Austin TX to San Jose CA; We were too tired to plow on through to the next city. Saw two signs as we entered the town, one for motel 8 [the coldness from the guy at front desk turned us off immediately] We went across the road to the little Inn, we were greeted with a...

This was the perfect place to stay while following the trail of Billy the Kid. The proprietor was very friendly and provided plenty of information about Fort Sumner. The motel is close to just about anything you'd care to do--the Billy the Kid Museum is across the street--and, while it is a no-frills kinda place, it has plenty of soul....

We did not actually stay in the Inn but I want to take this opportunity to thank Gary and Elaine for their help and honesty in their dealings with my wife and I whilst we were visiting Fort Sumner as part of our vacation. I would urge anybody visiting this area to consider staying at the Inn for the above...

Getting away from the searing heat in Roswell, I headed north to Ft Sumner, and found this fantastic motel. just across the road from a soulless super 8. Rooms & Service are first rate. I would recommend this to anyone, and would gladly stay there again. It is a great place to relax and see the historic countryside, Billy the...

After 40,000 + miles touring the USA on a motorcycle, we know our motels. Our first priority is cleanliness - this is 5 *. Wi-Fi is very important to as we are from Europe and need to phone home at odd hours - again, 5 * - internet is fast and secure. Other important considerations are a fridge to keep...

I found this place after doing a little research on TripAdvisor and loved the previous reviews. I was happy it was right off the main highway as I was passing thru and the folks who own it (Gary and Elaine Gaintner) couldn't have been nicer. Got a huge room with a very nice counter which I really appreciated and used....
