For $53 a night we were thrilled with the pleasant accommodation experience we got at this motel. And to be able to buy proper European style coffee made with freshly ground beans was the icing on the cake. Coffee was available from Circa, the cafe attached motel. Motel has really comfy beds, clean rooms and parking right in front of... More

EZ off and on highway for travelers....spotlessly clean and shining....friendly innkeepers....really nice cafe.....fabulously comfortable mattress. We were so sorry to leave! We drive cross country all the time and will ALWAYS do a stay at the Historic 66. Brought back lots of childhood memories. Don't miss it!!

Perfect! Perfectly CLEAN, Perfectly quiet. Simply Perfect!! The Price was... PERFECT also! The proprietors and the rooms were so wonderful that we made sure we stayed on the return trip as well!! The vintage airplane out front and the coffee bar "Circa" on site were cherries on top! Will be coming through again!!

My 10 y/o daughter and I are fortunate to travel the United States fairly frequently. Staying at budget motels along the way really helps the bottom line. Historic Route 66 is in my book as a 'will be back". Vintage decorated and styled rooms, but very clean and fresh. On this trip our cat was traveling with us, so we... More

Clean, retro, best nights sleep on our trip yet. Linen smelled like clothesline fresh. Great for just a nights sleep, no frills. Very quiet! Would stay again. Very nostalgic and owner was very nice. Real room key. Old pop can machine, of course not working. Thank you to the owner for preserving some history. Town lacks gas stations and places... More

Try very hard to stay at independently owned motels and hotels and support local businesses. This one was a great choice. Cheery owner who appeared at the front desk immediately after we opened the front door and it was getting pretty late for normal check ins. Our reservation was in order, key waiting for us (a real old fashioned key... More

Stayed 2 nights. Loved the place. Good linens, restored rooms with new carpets fresh paint and plaster. What a value. Highly recommend for those of us who seek the retro 66 experience. Loved the little frogs on the property but could do without Tucumcari 's giant grasshoppers and beetles. But they weren't in the rooms thank god!

This is an excellent place to stay. We were here three nights. The rooms were clean, the staff went out of their way to see that every possible need was met. They even provide an old towel to dust your shoes or clean your car! The coffee shop was fun, a nice place to sit and enjoy early before the... More

The rooms were clean and had a great 1960's style. Friendly staff. The rates are about half what you would expect to pay for a hotel, but be aware that this is a very basic motel. No pool, exercise room, in room refrigerator, or coffee pot. So if you are happy with a nice room with a cool style for... More

This was a cool spot on Route 66. Lots of retro roadside stuff on this particular strip. We stopped here after an 18+ hour drive and needed rest. It's definitely one of the best options on the route and probably the only pet friendly one at a fair price. I felt safe as all of the other guests were pleasant... More
