I did a cross country road trip form Glendale, Arizona to Washington DC. My first night out was in Tucumcarri, New Mexico. I had the pleasure of staying at Motel Safari. It is a preserved and remodeled typical roadside motel from the glory days of old Route 66. The room was immaculately clean. The owner is a gem. If you have a chance, skip the national chains in the area and give Motel Safari a chance to transport you back to a better time.
