My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in the Sands Motel in Carrizozo, while on vacation in southeastern New Mexico in early August 2018. The Sands is clean, well kept and the lady running/managing the front office was very pleasant and helpful. The shower/bathroom facilities worked well as did the air conditioning. The room was in good shape and contained a microwave and refrigerator. The bed was more than comfortable for a good nights rest. There was a little picnic table out in front of the property that was nice to sit at after dark while watching the incredible New Mexico night sky and sipping a beverage. Very relaxing. There is also a small RV park (with hookups) as part of the property for the overnight camper. Possibly my favorite aspect of the Sands Motel was the 1950s/60s retro look with a great sign out front. This is a classic mom and pop motel that harkens back to the days of US highway travel before the days of the interstate and ubiquitous boring chain motels and other chain establishments. The next time we are in Carrizozo, the Sands Motel will definitely be on our itinerary!
