2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

The staff seemed nice however the room condition was poor. Only half of the outlets in the room worked, there were 2 outlets. The room had an old musty/moldy smell with some small holes in the wall and ceiling. I wouldn't be surprised if this place closes soon like others on this strip. The bed was not very comfortable, the motel is not in the best part of town and felt somewhat unsafe sleeping here. The room had a refrigerator and microwave, however I had to move them across the room to plug them in to one of the only outlets available. The train was not a problem for me, also the owners seemed nice, but because of the other reasons and feeling unsafe I would not stay here again.

Historic Route 66 Experience here means the heater gurgles and the sound of freight trains running all night long. I slept with ear plugs and had no problems, my wife slept without and she had a good night. The train sounds added to the experience. But if noise is a problem, best stay away from Route 66 in Gallup or I40 for that matter.

Room Tip: We asked for downstairs due to my wife recovering from fracture and manager said no problem.
