We stayed here last night for the first sleep of our cross-country drive from Nevada to Virginia. The host, Rama, was charming and solicitous, and booked us in room 110 without a reservation, telling us exactly where to park so we could see our vehicle right outside our window.
The King bed was roomy and comfortable; the linens were clean.
The light blue, southwestern-themed (non-smoking) room was equipped with a small fridge and coffee maker, iron and ironing board, tissues (side of the sink) and blow dryer, and had no odd smells or issues. The decor and carpet were dated but not overly worn. I appreciated that this motel has interior halls, and felt safe and comfortable.
The tube television had LOTS of cable channel choices with a good picture and clean remote, the AC worked well (we left it set at 7, just as instructed!), and the free wifi worked just fine.
Plumbing in the sink and bathroom worked as expected, and the shower, which easily accommodated my tall companion, had a clean, convex shower curtain (a plus in my book as I am easily skeeved out by clingy-shower curtains! and dirty remotes! and carpets! *none* of which were a problem here).
The tap water in Tucumcari doesn't taste great, but we had bottled water on-hand for drinking and making coffee.
A free cold breakfast was provided in a meeting room off of the lobby (see pics). The offerings included apples, oranges, two types of cold cereal, refrigerated milk, bread for toasting, packaged danishes (tasty!), Tampico orange drink, and air pots of coffee and hot water for tea, with sugar, sweetener, and powdered creamer.
For quick accommodations under $50, we found this motel fit the bill. To quote my significant other, "If you are the type that expects granite counter tops, marble tile, a bidet, and a sixty inch plasma TV, this is not going to satisfy, but if you are like the majority of the planet, this motel is perfectly fine, a great value for the price."
