Renovated hotel in a convenient location
Posted Sep 6, 2016
The hotel is located in White Rock which should be clearly shown in Expedia. It is convenient to walk to the Bandelier Bus Shuttle, or to drive into Bandelier (possible only before 9 am and after 3 pm). White Rock does not have a lot of infrastructure (a supermarket is right next to the hotel), but Los Alamos is not far by car. It is only minutes by car from the Tsankawi trail, which is 100% recommendable to anyone interested in a moderate hike with great views.
Hotel staff (reception as well as cleaning and kitchen) was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is well above average in this hotel class.
Our room was newly renovated, however, the quality of workmanship was not checked. Therefore the sink was not sufficiently draining, and the microwave was not connected, nor was the plug accessible without significant efforts to move furniture, cut cable binders and route the power cable (late in the evening upon returning from a long day's trip). The aircon is a single blelow-window unit which is blowing arctic air right over the bed, whithout having the possibility to adjust the fan setting (only on/off). Also, the aircon is quite noisy, so bring ear plugs in the hot and cold seasons when you have to rely on cooling/heating.
Still, it was a pleasurable stay in a great location, and I can only recommend this hotel as a good value.
