On my way home to OKC from Santa Fe, I rolled and totaled my car 42 miles West of Tucumcari. The tow truck operators brought the car to Tucumcari and my dogs and me to the Desert Inn. The place was clean, the staff hospitable, and HBO on tune. Although I have never sought to spend the night in Tucumcari,... More

I don't know what hotel is in the pictures but it is not the desert inn in tucumecari, new mexico. I can't even believe this place shows 4 stars. Very tiny room, hot tub does not work...and what is that picture of the outside pool? There is no outside pool.

From the outside this place looks nice but don't let the exterior and the high ratings fooll you. This place is a dump. No elevator, outside keyed door that doesn't lock makes for no security, one small wall light for the whole room, one blanket made out of some sort of tacky plastic post it note substance, broken furniture and...

Nice looking hotel with very clean rooms. Looks like newer mattresses and pillows. Great price for two beds. Looking forward to the breakfast in the morning. Very friendly and pleasant at the front desk.

We liked this hotel overall. The staff was friendly and helpful and the pet cost was only $5 per night. The hot tub was great. Breakfast was very good. BUT - we got put into room 119 and it was so tiny that you could barely walk around the bed. You could tell that they had done their best to... More

Stayed here for a night to break our drive and was pleasant. Was apprehensive when we booked as we had not stayed in a "non branded" hotel for over a decade. Property has been remodeled and for breakfast they had waffles, hard boiled eggs, biscuit-gravy among other continental items. Descent and clean bed room.

After a very very long day of traveling we picked the desert inn to stay. We can't say enough nice things about the friendly, welcoming, and accommodating staff at the front desk. We called ahead when we were about an hour away and they allowed us to reserve the room without even taking a credit card. They keep the juices,... More

After reading some reviews and finding out my first choice motel was not open,I decided to give this place a shot. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly face and were given all the info we needed. We were able to see the room before and it looked decent. We just needed a place to lay our head... More
