If the promise of a galaxy far, far away sounds up your alley, then you deserve a stellar stay at the best Roswell NM hotel in the area. The International UFO Museum and Research Center (IUFOMRC) is right around the bend from this spacious Roswell hotel. However, that's not the only attraction in the neighborhood. We're also close to downtown and in excellent proximity to many restaurants. Clean, comfortable, recently remodeled guest rooms are a welcome respite from the heat. Three golf courses give you plenty of room to practice your swing. If you're in town visiting the UFO Festival, Eastern New Mexico State Fair or New Mexico Military Institute, the prime location of this Roswell hotel can't be beat. Enjoy exceptional value and superior service and staff. The Carlsbad Caverns and Ruidoso Downs are a couple of must-see stops near your Roswell hotel. Don't miss out on the plethora of events happening. The Chili-Cheese Festival is a red hot item, and there's no better way to wash down that fiesta than with the Milkman Triathlon. The Dragonfly Festival is a family-friendly celebration of nature's beauty, while the Rio Pecos Kennel Club Dog Show puts Bowser front and center. When traveling on business, you deserve to be pampered. Our Roswell hotel welcomes employees of Lovelace Regional Hospital, Leprino Foods, Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, the International Law Enforcement Academy and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center to name just a few. These folks return to us year after year for those special perks. The daily complimentary breakfast spread of this Roswell hotel is a real treat. Fill up your plate with hot waffles, a variety of fruits and pastries, cereal and yogurt. Nothing complements the most important meal of the day better than 100% Arabica coffee and chilled juices. Reserve your next stay at BEST WESTERN El Rancho and get ready for desert living done right!

Decent

Toilet wasn't completely clean when I walked in. I was so tired that I just ignored it but i did bring it to the attention of the person on duty. She immediately made note of it. When I mentioned that I wouldn't need to move because I was tired, she got a little defensive and said "well we don't have any rooms anyway." Okaaay. I could've caused a stir but not my style. Mentioned it again upon check out to the new person and yes it had been noted. No offer for a discount from either staff member. Oh well. The place is old but it'll definitely do if you need a place to stay. Decent Mexican restaurant within walking distance.

Nice for the cost

As we were traveling home and not on 'vacation', we weren't expecting much more than a reasonably priced place to stop overnight, but this hotel was a nice surprise--a good price and a really nice room to boot. It looked like it had been recently re-modeled and the furnishings, decor and cleanliness were great!

Roswell Trip

This Hotel was perfect for us. We were attending a large sporting event over a holiday weekend, and the location of this hotel was perfect for our two teams. We were right across the street from a Denny's and an Applebees and just a couple of miles from the event location. We will definitely stay here again next year!

good renovation

You can tell when someone truly renovates versus mere cosmetics; the layout of the bathroom areas shows real renovation. I suspect that problems w/original plumbing led to the rather ingenious way to move the sink....a bit odd, but works fine, and all renovation issues were addressed with the same "fix it nice-right"- kind of rare in the lodging industry these days.

Roswell has, for its size, one of the best Art museums and Fine Arts League gallery this D.C. native has seen. Kudos to Roswell for these gems!!

Comfortable and clean

Staff was welcoming and checkin was fast. Got a great room right by the lobby on the first floor. Room was small, but immaculate, had minifridge and microwave, new bathroom fixtures, great shower/waterpressure. Breakfast was best buffet I have had at a free breakfast: everything hot, fresh, and tasty. Biscuits and gravy (heavenly), cheese omelets, fruit, yummy fried potatoes, etc. Breakfast area was kept spotless and refilled. Even though we stayed during the "Alien fest" , even warned by desk staff that it could be a little crazy that night, the only sounds were those of fireworks closeby and not a problem. Very good experience. Great place to stay after a day at Carlsbad cavern state park.
