The GM allowed us to stay in this hotel as we arrived at 11:30PM. Every hotel in the area was reporting no vacancy. The hotel room was spacious and the king size bed was very comfortable. It had a brand new flat screen tv along with a refrigerator, microwave and A/C and heat. We couldn't ask for anything nicer especially... More

The motel is a decent one, room was nice, clean, spacious and includes a coffee maker, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv with HBO and free, fast wifi. One problem, it is very close to a railroad line, and huge freight trains seem to go by all night long!

Checked in 10/17, out 10/18. Mike made me feel welcomed. I would rate this higher but there was a train every few hours and I'm a light sleeper! Off-season so no guests upstairs. Room was clean and everything worked. Endless hot water for extended bath soaking.

We didn't want to stay in a chain, so we were in search of a local, classic Route 66 motel. A few were fully booked when we called, but there was room at the Tristar. The motel is basic and simple, but it has everything you need on a road trip- clean bed, clean bathroom, clean sink area, AC, mini... More

AC worked great. Great price too. Its not 5 star but its a great place to stay. Quiet even on a Saturday night. The town is a shadow of a... More

Lots of choices in Tucumcari and trust me, you could do a whole lot worse!! Trust the reviews on this one. It's clean and well kept. Bed is a little hard and the barcalounger was very uncomfortable, but for a safe hotel in basically a ghost town, it's a good, safe choice.

We just stayed here on a driving trip across country. It was a little hard to check in as we had to find the proprietor, Mike. He was serving customers in his bar when we arrived. The motel is old and the room definitely showed its age. That said, it was a large room and it cost us only $43!... More

Clearly an older motel, but clean and comfortable. Other reviews stated it needs a makeover, maybe... to that I say keep your expectations on line with the price. If the "look" of the hotel matters, this might not be for you. The owner was very nice and courteous. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again at this motel. My husband... More

It's only 4 miles off the highway, but it might seem like further. I found the location to be fine. It's clearly an older motel, but good. The owner/manager was very nice, and offered us an upgrade to a king room with a brand new bed. It was very comfortable. This is a budget trip for us, so I was... More
