When I entered the lobby to enquire about a room, I had to wait while the front desk attendant was apparently talking on the phone to a hotel guest who was unable to connect to the Wi-Fi in their room. He almost hung up on them without solving their problem, basically responding with "don't know what to tell you, I... More

Really interesting little place. Cool historical stuff! A good place to visit. Rooms are close to original (this was the first original Holiday Inn in America) plus some well placed updates. Best part is the nostalgia. Clean and good service.

Our room was clean and had 2 queen beds and a bathroom it was nice. The one whole wall was glass which im sure to some is weird but... More

We purchased the NYE package for comedy show, room and breakfast buffet. Our room was some-what aged but VERY clean, bed was very comfortable. The staff was very nice. The whole hotel is very nostalgic for those that enjoy that. It was an enjoyable stay and a good value for the cost.

Route 66 is an older hotel. It was the original Holiday Inn, after all. For all that, it is a nice property. It is well kept up, clean, smells decent and so on. Our room with one double bed was big and comfortable. The sheets were clean and fresh and we had plenty of reasonable sized pillows for the two... More

As a child I remember the Route 66 as one of the original Holiday Inns with the great neon sign out side. Over the years the signs gone and the formerly exposed hallways have been enclosed to make it more seasonally friendly. The lobby is filled with memorabilia from the era when Route 66 was the way west. As most... More

If you are a nostalgic, it shouldn't be a problem with this hotel. However the hotel is old and it needs a bit of TLC. Rooms have no windows but the whole wall to the corridor is a window covered by a curtain which means it is noisy. The room smelled mouldy and the carpet needed a bit of care.... More

We stayed here on our first night on Route 66. The hotel itself had quirky memorabilia, the pool is clean enough and the location is good (stones throw away from the Cozy Dog) However, the actual room had no windows and was therefore very damp and musky, they really need de-humidifiers in their rooms!! The blankets where also old and... More

Would not recommend this place as it is very outdated in the rooms and the doors did not feel secure. Overall the rest was OK. The restaurant was OK and the main hotel was also. If they spent a little money on the bedrooms like was spent on the safari hotel in tucumcari then it would make all the difference.
