We stayed one night at the Mayhill Hotel and had such a nice time. It is small and quirky, but we really enjoyed it. It has recently been renovated and we found the rooms very clean and the beds very comfortable.
We weren't sure about stopping in Mayhill but so glad we did. It is the perfect embodiment of a small town cafe. Friendly people, good music, and hearty, fresh food. We will stop by again.
Truly enjoyed this gem in the middle of our travels from White Sands over to Carlsbad Caverns. Next morning, we had breakfast at the cafe which was also really nice.
