About the Rocket Inn

Don't let the name Rocket Inn fool you; we are not kitschy or plastic. Our name is a nod to the sci-fi of mid-century when this motel was built, as well as to the modern science of rockets launching from the nearby Spaceport America and White Sands Missile Range. When we first started this restoration, we had the infinite potential of a blank canvas. We scraped the old building down to the bones to reinvent the vintage motor lodge.

We respect the history of the classic motor lodge in our culture. Our goal was to stay true to this simple style of lodging, which offers the traveler convenience and comfort, yet blend modernization with a peaceful aesthetic. We feel that architecture, décor and environment can be brought together in a harmony and continuity to create calm.
In keeping with "less is more," our rooms are simple: big comfortable beds, large step-in showers, basic pantry space, table and chairs. Yet all rooms are modernized with flat screen HDTV, microwave and fridge tucked away, plus plenty of power outlets and WIFI to satisfy the 21st century needs. We have made pleasing, simple surroundings our choice of design when creating the unique environment that is Rocket Inn. We keep the traveler at the center of our process as we bring our vision to life.
