Here’s a 2019 update. Renamed Black Mesa Casino and Travel Center. Still managed by the San Felipe Pueblo. No frills. A decent stopover between Abq and SF. A large dirt parking lot behind the casino. Semi parking behind the travel center. $20 fee for electric. Dry dock is free. Pay the front desk at the casino and security will unlock the terminal. Best bet is the most SE slot. It’s away from the truck noise. Quiet and dark. Have always felt safe. Plenty of room to excericise a dog. Stars at night. Highway noise a minimum. Too close to the travel center and you will hear overnight truck generators. Pro tips. Free coffee and soda at the casino. $10 game credit for new members players club card signup. Small casino cafe with decent eats. Re: Casino smoke. Not too bad. They work hard to vent. I can stand it for the hour or so. No table games, just slots. The diner at the travel center has a larger menu with HOT green chile stew. The travel center has $10 showers. Showers are free with a large trucker diesel purchase . Gas can be cheap. Easy on and easy off ramps. The center closes on San Felipe Feast Days. Check calendar. Feast days are wonderul events. No cameras! Friendly staff all around. The speedway is abandoned and was a terrible idea from the 1980s. The room for a truly wonderful rv site is there and one can only imagine if the whole space was catered to the rv lifestyle. Laundry! There is a dump and water station. The dump has a broken cc machine so go figure that it can be used gratis. We stayed a windy and rainy day and night. We watched the rain clouds roll by. I like this place as a solid go to place. As long as expectations are modest a fine stay will be had.
