I was ill with sore throat and killer cough and just wanted to sleep. Looking for a place I saw the brand hotels for prices in the $130s. This... More

I tend to stay in the same hotels when I travel cross country, but my last trip I decided to add an extra day to my journey. Tucumcari seemed like a good location to spend my final night on the road. After reading my reviews online, I chose to book at the Desert Inn. The major deciding factor in what... More

We stayed here overnight a week apart. First night was in one queen bed, which is a very small room, but serves its purpose. Next time we got two queens which was much better. The rooms have good heating and air. I mention this as I hate the ones that are constantly going on and off during the night. There... More

Our room was adequately sized, clean, fridge & micro worked well, up to date & beds were super comfortable! Pool & hot tub were clean & perfect temperature!... More

I was traveling to arizona and this little town was on my way. I didn't really know what to expect and arriving at night made me a little nervous. BUT holy cow. It was great! It was very very lit up.

Good price on room, front desk girl was friendly. Parking lot was well lit, hotel was clean, room was clean, lighting kind of dim but otherwise no problems. Breakfast is real basic, cereal, waffles, bagels, toast, coffee, juice. If you're looking for a cheap place to sleep, go for it.

Upgrade of the comforter would also be a plus. The heater is a bit noisy but that's because the rooms are small but it all... More
