Not much has changed since JayG stayed in 2004!! – Maybe it's just the Georgia O'Keefe room? Has anyone stayed in any of the other rooms? The bathroom was equivalent to a cheap motel. We had reserved a queen bed but found a tiny doulble instead. It wasn't so much the size as the fact that it was soft and uncomfortable and we found ourselves meeting int he middle. I think they're still using the same ol' pillows that JayG mentioned.
But the worst thing, by far, was the inability to control the room's air conditioning. The thermostat on the wall was in no way connected to the air coming into the room. After freezing miserably until 12 midnight, the air suddenly went off and the room became hot and stuffy. We spent an hour and a half fiddling with the fan and the sliding door to get it to a comfortable sleeping temperature. We finally got to sleep at 1:30 am and were rather tired and grouchy the following morning.
After a rough night's sleep we were looking forward to a yummy home-cooked breakfast. After stale cereal, we were offered "pumpkin waffles". When we declined, the server asked, "So, will that be enough then?" pointing to our half-eaten bowls of stale cereal. For people who don't eat waffles for breakfast, we were surprised that there were no alternatives. Considering that we were planning a long hike through Whte Sands, we asked if they had any bread and cooked ourselves some toast. That still wasn't enough for breakfast so we stopped and got ourselves some real food on the way out.
The following night, we decided not to skip the B & B scene and get a good night sleep at the Fairfield Inn, by Marriott. The room was large, clean, had a big king bed, air-conditioning that we could control, a full-sized bathroom with a tub and a help-yourself continental breakfast that included cereal, fresh fruit, juices, toast, bagels, waffles, doughnuts, boiled eggs and muffins. Money well spent!!!
Stay at your own risk! – The Inn's website states "Our ... inn is rated one of the top twenty inns in the country" Hard to imagine given the following: Bath amenities on par with a budget hotel, cheap and faded prints in a room called the "Georgia O'Keefe Room", old pillows compressed and stained through years of use, and dingy walls and unswept floors. The innkeeper doesn't understand customer service and is long on excuses. One day the room wasn't made up, the excuse "we were still in the room when the maid came by Not true. We departed immediately after breakfast. A dull breakfast of scrambled eggs and biscuits, was the result of a cook caught in a traffic jam. Traffic jam in Las Cruces? Please! Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
