Desert Sands Motel

Definition: Built in 1957, the Desert Sands was considered a first-class establishment with a fancy roadside sign. Now it's in a rundown neighborhood, just a cheap place for drifters to hide out ... with a fancy vintage roadside sign.

Built in 1957, the Desert Sands was considered a first-class establishment with a fancy roadside sign. Now it's in a rundown neighborhood, just a cheap place for drifters to hide out ... with a fancy vintage roadside sign. The sign is well documented by travel photojournalists.

The motel is gritty and unique, making it the perfect location for two of the film's most memorable scenes. First, Moss falls from grace by flirting with a woman who's not his wife and ends up gunned down. Second, Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), who's been investigating the trail of dead bodies left behind by Chigurh, travels to the crime scene, room 114, and it seems like there will be a second gun battle -- between the sheriff and Chigurh -- but the killer vanishes like a ghost.

Fun Fact:
Room 109 is considered by many paranormal websites to be one of the most haunted places in New Mexico. People who rent the room claim they were watched by unseen eyes, that their hair was pulled by something unseen, that growling emanated from the bathroom, or that the TV turned on by itself.
