We spent the night at Continental Inn after hours and hours of driving from AZ to NM. Our bed was okay. The sheets doesn't smell bad. The A/C was noisy. Our bathroom has some kinda issue. The toilet bowl was not properly installed and the water was leaking all over the bathroom floor. There are rust in the bathroom faucet.Our...

I'm happy they had a room at this hotel when I couldn't stay at the hotel I had reserved (Motel 6 right across the parking lot). Had to wait for the room to be clean since I didn't have reservations, but the rooms are really large. Furniture is old and stained but fairly clean. They keep the pool locked because...

The air conditioner broke after a couple hours on a record breaking heat wave. The owners refused to move me to another room nor even offer a partial refund!

Stayed here one nite during Memorial Day weekend. Other places we tried were full. Seems to have gone downhill, as AAA no longer recommends it. Door to room was difficult to unlock and shower faucet had a steady drip. Most disappointing was the non-functional WiFi. A previous reviewer mentioned this, so I asked if it was working when I called....

Stayed here since the name brand places were all booked. We stayed in a 3 queen, non-smoking room for a really cheap price. The room itself was spacious and everything was in working order. Also included was a microwave and mini-fridge. Free Wifi was up and running just fine. Make no mistake, this is a motel-quality establishment, so adjust your...

We found this small motel via tripadvisor on our way in to town to see the Caverns. We didn't want anything more than a cheap overnight as we were arriving late and leaving early to visit the Caverns and then move on. There were a number of inexpensive places, but they all looked a sort of shady until we found...

This hotel is a total dump and the employees are the rudest, most inept hotel staff I have encountered since I stayed in Juarez, Mexico in the 70's and they couldn't speak english! Internet access non-existent, TV was a piece of junk, room walls are paper thin and I could literally go on and on. Just take my advice and...

I spent one week here in June 2010 for work. It's an older hotel and a bit worn, but a good value. No special amenities and certainly not 4-star quality, but acceptable and affordable. Wireless internet worked fine. "Breakfast" left much to be desired.
