We stayed there on our way to Raton and back from East Texas. Forgot our pillows on the way. Marisela held them for us until we returned. She was most gracious and helpful. She also faxed us a copy of our receipt weeks after our stay so that we could be reimbursed for our travel. The rooms were clean and... More

The room was clean, but had a smoky odor for a non-smoking room. It is a bit old and one of the concrete stairs broke when I stepped on it. Our linens has burn holes and wear holes in places. Not the greatest part of town, but good access to the freeway.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. When you bought it to attention on the stair it was resolved the very next day. I have addressed the housekeeping issues and are working hard on making sure that our rooms smell great. We appreciate the feedback. AP More

We were camping in a tent at the local KOA, but the severe thunderstorms at night forced us to get a hotel room one night. Most hotels were booked, and at 10 pm, we wanted something cheap. Positives: It's cheap! $50! 2 full-size beds, black-out curtains, AC worked great, bathroom clean. Nice lady at the front desk. Beds were fine.... More

We chose this inn because our credit card points were accepted, its location and fact that the website stated they had a guest laundry. Oops! They said it was out of order but they had expected it to be fixed today. We were sent to a laundromat in a questionable neighborhood. In the morning they had coffee and "refreshments" in... More

From the moment I walked in Jenny at the front desk made me feel welcome. Her warm smile and kind eyes were a welcome relief from the bored and unhappy hotel clerks of travels past. The room was clean, as were the sheets and comforter. True the hotel is older in age, yet the upkeep on the room would lead... More

ABVI Amarillo is about 35 years old and really shows it. A no frills motel with minimal furnishings, no breakfast, TV remote didn't work, towels and washcloths threadbare and not a lot near by. We've stayed at other ABVI motels but this doesn't make the grade! We made reservations online but had we known how bad the place is we... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are in the process of updating the rooms. We are the most economically priced hotel in town, and we are working really hard to get everything going. We were a previous Motel 6 so our furnishings are limited. Thank you, Al P More

Had to stop here at 2:00 AM when we had unscheduled travel. Apparently all of Amarillo was booked for the night. Front desk clerk was very nice and helpful. Beyond that I can't say much good about this place. The whole place was obviously run down and dirty. The beds were lumpy and the blankets had multiple cigarette burns. The... More

Been staying here for over a year so far. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Trisha, at the desk, is a joy to talk with. The rates are very reasonable (when I do find a house, it will definitely cost me more for rent and utilities than I'm paying here). Overall, I am really happy here :)
