4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spoke to a very nice man to make the reservation. When we arrived he took our information and was very efficient (he told us the wifi code, explained where the amenities were located, etc.) Our room had very comfortable beds. It was quite. The bathroom had the sink, tub, and toilet all together (it is nicer to have the... More

Great location, great price, great stay. We needed a place to stay for one night. The price was right and we were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. Very clean and the room had everything you needed. Mr. Patel recommended the Pow Wow restaurant about one half mile away. Great food and atmosphere. We received a 10% discount as guests of... More

we have stayed in much cheaper motels and hotels and much more expensive motels and hotels but this is the first near perfect experience where the price and hotel are both great! The positives: Exceptionally clean (not a spot on the full length width of room mirror and a clean carpet!), good choices for a hot continental breakfast with waffles,... More

Hey folks, it's Tucumcari, NM Grab a Subway sandwich, a six pack at the drive thru and settle in for a TV night.. The motel is easy on, easy off from I -40. A big gas station is right next door.

The staff is excellent, comparable to a five star hotel. We checked in just as the pool and hot tub were to close but Jessica kept it open for us so we could soak. Room was well appointed and clean. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choices. Would definitely stay again.

First of all everything in our room worked. Some hotels we have stayed in recently costly much more had missing parts, broken parts etc. So this is a good hotel for giving you things that work at an affordable price. Our room is spacious, clean, nice décor. It is very convenient to the highway and restaurants and that is important... More

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!
