About
Description
The world-famous Motel Safari on Historic Route 66 in Tucumcari, New Mexico, has been a Mother Road icon for 60 years! We invite you to skip the big chains and experience road travel the way it used to be. Enjoy an More authentic slice of Americana with mid-century modern accommodations that don't sacrifice today's comforts and amenities. Relax on Sealy Posturepedic pillow-top mattresses, enjoy 32" HDTVs with cable, groove with Tivoli Audio BT One streaming Rte 66 Radio, cool off with remote-controlled Frigid-Aire, refresh with Speakman Anystream showerheads, stay connected with fast, free WiFi, and wake up to in-room coffee makers. And you can park right at your room! Head outside to unwind on the patio, enjoy the fire pit and visit with fellow travelers. We're centrally located, close to dining, shopping and attractions, with many just a short walk away. When getting your kicks on 66 in Tucumcari, make the Motel Safari your home away from home. Just look for the camel! Less
