I was here one night. I found the place on Tripadvisor. It was a great place and excellent value. The room was nice and clean. I loved that it had a fridge and microwave. They even put free water bottles in the room. The breakfast was a bit better than average - the hard boiled eggs were warm. I prefer... More

I stayed for one night as I was passing through town. I would definitely stay again! Very clean, updated rooms! Service was excellent! Nice location right off the highway. My only complaint is the room was a little small, but that's minor. I only paid $60 a night. Excellent value for what you get! Much better than a Motel 6!

My family and I stayed here last week after a long drive from Flagstaff. This place is clean and very affordable. I can tell you that we walked in and got two rooms for $61.00 per room, which is hard to come by on the interstate. The check-in was easy and quick, check-out was just as easy and quick. The... More

Not to be confused with the more famous Desert Inn, this Hotel made the grade and then some when it comes to Hospitality. Modern, Clean, Comfortable and, most importantly, Affordable are all words I can apply to this Desert Inn. A mechanical breakdown on I-40 left me stranded between Tucumcari and Albuquerque and fate led me to John's Truck Repair... More

Traveling through the southwest in January I searched online and found this very reasonably priced hotel, decided to give it a try. The beds are PERFECT! Nice linens, too. I had one of the best night's sleep of my life and woke up feeling perfectly refreshed, after a long day of driving. Staff very friendly, everything clean as a whistle.... More

I have stayed at other hotels in the area and paid higher prices. I guess I should start by saying I know what I want in a hotel room because I and my wife own one that gets great reviews on trip advisor. As I stated before I had stayed in other hotels in the area and have paid over... More

We stayed here for a night during our cross country motorcycle trip and the staff was very nice and helpful. The room was very modern and super comfy. I particularly like the window bench seat. Would definitely stay here again.

On our way from missouri to arizona we stopped off at this hotel for the night. The hotel staff was helpful. The pool was indoors and clean. It was relaxing to chill in the pool after a long drive. Our room was clean and comfortable. The price was good for the area. Would stay again if we are coming through.

Like most travelers we didn’t come specifically to Tucumcari, but were passing through on historic Route 66. I will give a fair and balanced review, because unlike some who think this is a “gem” and others who rate this as a trash heap, the truth is actually someplace in the middle. First of all, the place was easy to find,... More
