Stayed there as part of our Big 2013 Road Trip. Great neon sign. Spacious & clean room - not fancy or new, but decent, with original furniture (only minor complaint - A/C took a while to cool the room). Very reasonable price. Friendly people, & a friendly cat too. Would definitely stay again.

This has been the best place we have stayed throughout our trip. Friendly hosts checked our family in quickly and hassle free. Our room was spotless and had alot of character. It was very quiet and the ac worked great. At less than $35 per night, this is absolutely a great deal. Way better than a chain hotel!

If you're going to stay in Tucumcari, for goodness sake, don't go for the Super 8 or Hampton Inn. Instead, get a little taste of American history and spend the night at a motel that travelers might've visited during the heyday of Route 66. The Buckaroo fits this bill very nicely indeed. A quiet, clean, motor court, as they used... More

OK, this place is the best. I never spend big bucks on overnight when crossing the country and this place is killer. Really nice owners, cheap rate ($25), quiet as heck, clean and solid value. I will always stay here, not enough of these places left on the map anymore. The rooms do not stink either. Budget but great budget.... More

After a long days drive north from El Paso, I arrived at the Buckaroo not looking for much. Just a room, secure with the basics, and quiet. And that's what I got. A very basic room, old school Route 66 60's era crash pad. The rate was around $20 (a bit more now, in 2008). The owner, a nice woman,... More

I have been staying at the Buckaroo Motel for about eight years. I was first lured in by the fetching neon sign with the captivating buckaroo. Route 66, neon or no neon, you don't return for as long as I have without the finer touches: Cleanliness, a respect for the 1960's decor albeit with new beds, bedding, towels, etc., owners... More

Recently my family made Tucumcari an overnight stop on our annual ski trip. I was extremely pleased with our room. This room had new carpet, comfortable new mattresses, color cable TV, not to mention, a most gracious hostess. This is one of the remaining historical motels on Route 66 which has been kept in good condition. Our room included a... More
