The desert in was a good hotel for the cheap price. The only problem I had was that they do not have an elevator so you have to carry everything up. It was pretty quiet, had a nice pool, and was pet friendly.

We stayed here one night and it was clean and priced reasonably. They do offer a breakfast as well. The only negative I noticed was the walls are thin and we had noisy people next to us. The staff was very friendly. They recommended a good offsite restaurant for dinner (Del's).

We found this motel on Trip Advisor using reviews while driving. It was listed as the number 1 motel in Tucumcari. Desert Inn is very clean. To get the best price you must register online, which can be difficult given the WiFi coverage area on the trip.

Hotel was being updated with new carpet and paint. Small queen room with average bathroom on second floor-no elevator. Location was convenient but noise from Interstate 40 on our side of the building until about 10:30 pm. Ate at the historic Del's with Route 66 memorabilia and then drove around the downtown to see the murals depicting the area in...

We love this hotel and have stayed there before. The lady who checked us in was very nice. This time we were disappointed. The fan in our room blew all the time and was very noisy. The breakfast was not even average. Warm orange juice and cream cheese was like melted butter. It clearly says to refrigerate and it clearly...

When travelling East or West on I-40, most folks want a good, clean hotel at a good price. The Desert Inn allows you to save $30+ by getting a slightly smaller room without having to sacrifice a good night's sleep. My wife and I were graciously welcomed by the desk clerk,Twyla who gave a thorough run-down of all the amenities...

Unexpected find in Tucumcari NM. Very clean, cozy and friendly. Great value (Make sure you book online like Booking.com for savings). Check in smooth and welcoming. Desk Clerk gets kudos for that. Much better I'm sure than chin hotels. Waffle bar and cereals for breakfast. I will be sure to revisit on my return trip. Please, extra thanks to the...

They've made a good effort to update an older motel and it is clean. Having a microwave and fridge in the room is nice but there is very little closet space because of this. Also a few odd things like power cords running up the wall and the toilet paper is across the room from the toilet. The fitness room...
