“Decent Safe Place to Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

There is plenty of parking and the front desk was cordial.

This place was a little dated. Old box TV that took 20 minutes to warm up and not have a green picture.

The wifi was strong even though we stayed in the back. Room 128 if I remember correctly.

Did not like the smell of cleaners used in room. The room appeared clean. There was just a strong smell of ammonia. Hope it wasn't cat pee.

This was a nice room for the money. It had big truck parking in the rear and was pet friendly. Both things we need. We had a nice king bed, microwave and refrigerator. Pretty good breakfast also. Will definitely stay here again when in Amarillo.

Stayed here unexpectedly after our vehicle broke down on way to my daughter's wedding in Michigan. Great place to stay if you happen to end up needing tools and food. Harbor freight tools next door and lots of restaurants. Front desk staff and manager very accomodating. Let us stay past late checkout so my husband could clean up after fixing our vehicle which was a 5 hour job! Had me put a 20 dollar deposit which they promptly gave back when we left. Hard to find good customer service these days and so refreshing when you do.

I made a reservation for a room with 2 beds - was given a room with one bed. Went back to office to ask for correct room - was told that was the only room available. Called the other RRI in Amarillo - no problem - they had what I wanted. This RRI suddenly came up with room I had requested - no apologies. Got into room - killed about 10 flies with hand towel, then realized that carpet in front of sink is soaking wet. Yuck!!! Going to kill more flies now.
Oh yeah - and the wi fi apparently doesn't reach to my room.

I got this property via Hotwire. It was a good place for the price. I ate breakfast at the famous Big Texan steakhouse, its a Route 66 landmark, it originated on 66. The room was clean and the tube tv worked fine.

We only were here for the night. Checked in late like after 10 and left early. Clean room, fridge, sink outside the teeny shower/toilet area which I love so you can have multiple people doing morning bathroom stuff at the same time.
Basic decent breakfast, friendly front desk. Again, for the price, it's a bit more than you'd expect. I'd recommend for a quick night on the cheap. Ask for AAA discount too!

Upon arrival a very friendly check in person gave me a bottle of water. After going to the room she even called to make sure everything was ok. This is an older property but the air conditioning and plumbing worked well. Internet also worked well. Breakfast was cereals, donuts, biscuits and gravy, oatmeal , toast, coffee and juice. Would not hesitate to stay there again especially for the price.
