This is an older motel that has been upgraded - new beds, new drapes, freshly painted in rooms, lobby, and eating area, and new flat screens. We travel to and from Arizona and Tucumcari has always been a disappointment motel wise-not anymore, they have gained a repeat customer. I got sick with the 24 hour flu just after checking in...

I would have thought I was staying at a $110.00 a night motel. Bed was very comfortable. Room... More

We recently stayed at the Desert Inn in Tucumcari while driving from Tucson to Minnesota. It was late at night when we arrived in the area. We wanted something inexpensive! For the price, this hotel was amazing! Great service, very clean room and good breakfast. The room we got was a little small but we didn't mind since we were... More

Stayed here after a long night on the road. Had a late check in. The prices were only $10 different than across the street at econo lodge or worse. Rooms were new, and beds comfy! Hot tub area and pool were nice. The hotel was recently remodelled, and smells and looks new. The breakfast was great! Would stay again. Front... More

Stopped here tonight on my way back to Indiana from Arizona. It is a very nice hotel. The room is quite small but it is clean and well lighted. There is a fridge & microwave along with a flat screen tv. Not many stations but the ones you get come in very good. The price was reasonable. The bed is... More
