My family and I recently stayed at the motel on our big move to San Antonio. We chose the motel because it was the cheapest with the best rating, that allowed dogs. The room was decent enough. It may have needed some maintenance, as in the bathroom fan cover was missing and the walls needed a fresh coat of paint... More

The common areas and the upstairs sidewalk were in disrepair and poorly maintained. The breakfast should not have been advertised as a hot breakfast. Waffle iron, gravy and biscuits. The selection was the worst I've had in a long time. New king superior room was not very superior. Carpet wrinkled and old, etc.

Not sure why all the bad reviews lately. We stay here when we come through Amarillo and always have a good stay. Staff is always pleasant. We always get a nice breakfast(waffles, biscuit and gravy, muffins, doughnuts , cereals and toast,plenty to choose from) Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean.

We stayed here for one night in January 2014 while on a trip across the country to move. The parking lot it huge and has a designated area for large trucks and trailers which is nice when you're driving a 26 foot Uhaul. The rooms were clean, and continental breakfast was available at 5am for the early risers. My only... More

Thank you for choosing Red Roof Inn Amarillo, and I'm glad we could provide you excellent service. I'm also happy that you took advantage of our truck parking, as not many hotels in Amarillo have that facility. On the Wi-Fi, we have fixed that issue, so I don't suspect it to arise anytime soon. Thank you for letting us know... More

We spent one night here in early April 2014. The rooms were acceptable - clean and everything in working order. Property is in a safe area with several fast food choices nearby. The staff was great! Even though we had an extra early checkout, coffee and small snacks were ready way before the normal time of 6 AM. Great value... More

It was okay all around just to sleep. I booked the place because it was in my price range but I was told it had a hot tub and heated pool. We got there, pool was outside and it was closed becuase it was too cold. There was no hot tub like I was told. Traffic noise was bad. They... More

This motel is way past its prime and does not reflect well on the Red Roof Inn, name. Our stay in mid-August was pretty bad, with staff and to some degree owner, being the only good points. Stopped up drains, having to shift to another room after midnight, killing ten plus flies a day, (we stayed 3 nights) huge open... More

I only stayed for one night as I was passing through Amarillo, but it was a good spot. Picked it based on price as it was one of the cheapest along the interstate from the many selections.
