Old school, Route 66 motel. Good value for the price. No problems. Clean. Pool table in bar area gave us something to kill a little time with before bed. Quiet room. Would recommend for anyone passing through Tucumcari.

When you're on Route 66, small independent hotels are definitely the way to go to get the full Route 66 effect! We stayed at Tristar for two nights during Rockabilly on the Route. The room was priced great and clean and spacious. The bar was great and the owner was very friendly. I would highly recommend!

We were driving route66 again and decided to stay a here again. Mike remembered us from 2 years ago. We had a great night at the bar with Mike. The room was clean and comfortable the shower was hot and great water pressure. So do yourself a favour and stay.

We've spent a night in our travel along route 66. The place is within the town. The rooms are very clean, has microwave and frisge, beds are confortable and the owner was very kind. It also has a bar with a pool, which is an extra point. It is an affordable place, and you get a clean and confy place... More

This is one of the most difficult reviews I have ever written. Each time I wanted to score this a 4 or higher there was something making me want to score it 2 or less so I settled at 3. We ultimately chose this one over some of the other historical hotels because it had a pool for our kids.... More

Six years ago, I presented a review of the Tristar Inn Express. I still recommend the place. It is well-kept and provides good accommodations at a reasonable price. Rooms are clean and well-furnished. A bar has been added recently and has gotten good reviews from those who have patronized it. Definitely one of Tucumcari's lodging gems.

It took 20 minutes to locate the desk clerk and get a room. Desk clerk too businesslike. Treated like he could "take you or leave you." The bartender of the attached bar was much more friendly and was apologetic. Not the welcome for a weary traveler. Room was pretty clean but really shouldn't they all be? It took forever for... More
