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

Traveling from Georgia to Gallup nm we decided to stop in tucumcari for the night. Looking on trip advisor I saw the usual chains but traveling with two dogs did not want to pay high pet fees especially since the dogs are cleaner than most kids, so chose this hotel. Great choice. Friendly owners, neat retro rooms, hair dryer on... More

This was recommended by one of our guidebooks--and they were totally right! Friendly staff (the owner even froze our ice containers overnight so we'd have them ready for our cooler!), pet friendly. (The night of our stay, we had Barney, the Great Dane, next door, 3 cats in another room, 3 dogs in another--that I know of.) Spotlessly clean, comfortable... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night last weekend during Rockabilly on the Route, and were very pleased with our stay. Check-in and check-out went smoothly. The owner and front desk clerk were very friendly. I even saw the owner later that night at the rockabilly show and she remembered my name. The rooms were spacious, very clean... More

What a sweet sweet spot, and a complete surprise. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and very spacious. With floor-to-ceiling windows, it was bright and welcoming and thoroughly cool in a 1950's/1960's way. Nothing fancy about it, but totally wonderful. They even have a good espresso café on site! What a find! The owner/operator was so gracious and helpful, and the... More

We’ve stayed at several motels in Tucumcari. This is now our favorite. It has friendly staff, perfect parking, mirror and shower for 6 foot customers, bright lights, and priced for us. We will stay there again.

On our cross country journey of America I wanted my family to experience what motels were like before holiday Inn express took over. I called the motel about 40 minutes before I arrived and asked for the air conditioning to be turned on. The owner was friendly and thanked me for calling. The room was very clean, the air conditioning... More
