“Bad place to stay”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This was the only place in the immediate area, all name brands were full. Place looked very seedy, watched every motion I saw. Room was poor, roof leaked when a storm came. The leak was right over the bed. Moved bed to an area without a leak and it looked like under the bed hadn't been cleaned in years or longer. Place smelled in corridor, ice machine didn't work and very noisy in halls. No breakfast available. Amarillo itself was overall a bad place, a restaurant that seemed very popular was over poor in service and took too long to get order taken and then get meal which came wrong, and a gas station in area didn't have working pumps for credit cards, and I watched everything around me.

Room Tip: Stay only at a brand name location and only on I-40.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

This old motel is a ghost of better times. It is a fairly large property, probably had a heyday of 1960's era, maybe some late 50's. I would love to know the history of the property. Today it is cheap, ugly, questionable in the cleanliness. There are signs of remodeling – meaning piles of remodeling stuff laying around the property. The managers are family run Indian with typical language challenge, but friendly and helpful enough. The marquee said “pool and ESPNU” - neither of which was available. The former swimming pool and hot tub area is empty, neglected and a receptacle for some kind of trash. The room itself was on the large side, but had a dark feeling, several light switches etc did not work. The hallways are remarkably dark – long, winding and dark. Looks like a perfect set for a scarey movie. Overall except for the sentimentality of better times on Route 66, I would not recommend this property.
