My wife and I thought we would drive straight thru to Tulsa from Phoenix. We found we needed to rest somewhere and we were close to Tucumcari. I had stayed at the Tristar about a year ago by myself and was pleased....and it's inexpensive. Wife was a little skeptical. Mike the innkeeper of course had a room and it was... More

Very rustic location to stay. I picture this hotel to once be a booming place to stay for the night during an era when a travelers only choice west was on Route 66. The interstate has bypassed all that. The town itself appears to also be an aging and crumbling memory of prospering days past with vacated properties upon vacated... More

May 17 2016 Stayed one night. Mike is great. Loved visiting with him at his bar and the young men playing pool. Room was great and the beds were very comfortable. Would stay again. It was quiet and clean. No complaints.

Travelling from Winslow, Arizona to Amarillo, I didn't know where to stop off the I40. Tucumcari came up, and by this time I needed to stop. I was very lucky and pulled in to the tristar to meet the owner Mike. A great, honest, hardworking fellow. Got a great price in a great room with anything you might need, the... More

The room was clean but it does really need updating. Cracks around the fixtures and a mustiness are a few of the issues. The staff however is very helpful and eager to please. Huge selection in the bar for such an out of the way town and I had fun playing "stump the bartender " with another couple.

The GM allowed us to stay in this hotel as we arrived at 11:30PM. Every hotel in the area was reporting no vacancy. The hotel room was spacious and the king size bed was very comfortable. It had a brand new flat screen tv along with a refrigerator, microwave and A/C and heat. We couldn't ask for anything nicer especially... More

The motel is a decent one, room was nice, clean, spacious and includes a coffee maker, fridge, microwave, flat screen tv with HBO and free, fast wifi. One problem, it is very close to a railroad line, and huge freight trains seem to go by all night long!

Checked in 10/17, out 10/18. Mike made me feel welcomed. I would rate this higher but there was a train every few hours and I'm a light sleeper! Off-season so no guests upstairs. Room was clean and everything worked. Endless hot water for extended bath soaking.

We didn't want to stay in a chain, so we were in search of a local, classic Route 66 motel. A few were fully booked when we called, but there was room at the Tristar. The motel is basic and simple, but it has everything you need on a road trip- clean bed, clean bathroom, clean sink area, AC, mini... More
