The service was very good and prompt.The breakfast was plentiful and tasty. I plan to return to eat here on my next visit to Silver City. There were a lot of local customers as well as tourists so they must be doing something right. Prices were reasonable.

The new owners are trying to fix an old hotel. Our room had new tile on the floor and new furniture. But the air conditioner was worn out. Instead our room had a window fan. It was 84 degrees when we arrived. But you know the temp cooled and with the fresh air we got a great nights sleep. The room was tiny and the bathroom was hardly more than a closet. The included breakfast at the attached restaurant was excellent. So, we had extremes. 1s to 5s and back again. So I rated this hotel a 3.

I'm here in Silver City for a multi-day bike race and lodging is always scarce. The Drifter listed several new updates and I thought I'd give it a shot. Really happy with the place. No doubt a super simple-no frills place but the staff (owners I believe) have been spot on.
While the property is a bit dated and could us Outside sprucing up my room is super clean, feels fresh and a super comfortable bed.
And- the location is ideal!
Right of the main road and just a few blocks from down town.

Stayed here on a recent road trip. The room was clean and comfortable. Everything worked just fine and there were nice soaps etc. They even had a toothbrush and toothpaste. Wi fi was easy and fast. Did I mention the fact that breakfast is included. Yes, and a very good one. Nice friendly people too. Would definitely recommend. Reasonable rates a big plus. Only thing missing was the ice bucket.

The owners have done a great job of renovating this old motor hotel. We had a large corner room with nice fluffy towels, new pillows, new carpet, new mattress. It was quiet and comfortable. Much better than the chain hotel down the street that was twice as much per night. The best part is the free breakfast at the motel restaurant. Excellent breakfast burritos, good red chile, good service. I would go again!
