Our stay here was incredible! While traveling route 66, a comfortable bed is a necessity. This motel had THE most comfortable beds and was by far our best stay yet. The owner was extremely helpful and courteous. When she showed us to our room, she really showed us TO our room and even gave a tour of the room! :)... More

We booked in advance for a weekend night at an excellent rate. Pulled up (almost directly across from a more famous Route 66 landmark motel) and noticed the mural on the carport wall and the designs painted on the room doors. Fast and friendly check-in; escorted to the room by the owner. Lights were already on and oldies music playing... More

Our room was very comfortably sized, immaculately clean, with pleasing decor from 50s, 60s. The beds and linens were unusually high quality, which we particularly appreciate after a long day on the motorcycle. There is a coffee maker, but no fridge or microwave. Chairs are provided outside each room so visitors can enjoy the evenings, and there is a community... More

The Wanda Jackson suite is a do-not miss room on Route 66! If you are like us and stay at the classic Route 66 motels or Super 8s along the road, this is a welcomed splurge. We appreciated that the room was squeaky clean and the bed was ultra plush. Richard and Gail gave us great recommendations and were fun... More

This place is well kept up and decorated with the retro theme of years past. Though the many years mean lots of guests have come and gone, the facilities are clean and in good working order. Comfort and cleanliness doesn't just come from the modern, high-priced hotel. Visit the past on Route 66 and stay at this little gem. Wi-fi... More

This is the way all old, small motels should be. We explore the old route 66 a lot, and this is a great place to stay in Tucumcari. Check out the songs of Tucumcari CD in the room, BTW, the AC worked great.

Owner greeted us on arrival went so far as to park our rental moving truck for us. We got good recommendations on places to eat in Tucumcari. Room was immaculate, and we got a much needed good night's sleep, an the price was very fair. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this Route 66-style motel to others.

All the amenities of home – a king sized bed, parking right in front of the room, in-room coffee maker and fridge, in the ambiance of a restored 1959 motor hotel. Very clean, super-fluffy towels and great sheets. Innkeeper showed us to our room and brought us ice. Really outstanding option for an excellent price.

We stopped by on our way back from Tioga, Tx to Tijeras, NM - after that long drive it was great to pull into Motel Safari and get a room. We had a chance to stay in the luxury suite, and what an awesome job the owners have done to this room. It was beautiful, spacious, and very clean. The... More

Hotel Safari has very clean rooms. The linens were of a very good quality. Owners were very nice and helpful. Would stay again for sure. It was very nice to sit on the patio and visit with other travelers
