I made this reservation over the Internet and read the reviews. I decided on this one because the other Super 8's in Amarillo had some very negative reviews. I am glad to say that I was very pleased. There are some small negatives, but the positives out weighed them.
It is a little tricky to get to the motel because it is on the one-way access (or frontage) road, so you need to use a non-direct route after you see the motel. Once there it was easy to return because we could figure out the correct route to take.
The room was clean and large enough. There were tables and chairs. The wireless Internet worked well. The room was quiet except when the bathroom light was on, the bathroom fan was also on, and it was very noisy. There was a dirty wash cloth left high on the shower rod, where it was difficult to see and for a short person to reach. Otherwise, the bathroom had been well cleaned. The price was almost unbelievable for the quality of the room and motel.
The breakfast was great - hot scrambled eggs, hot biscuits, hot gravy, waffles, syrup, cereal, milk, juice, toast, etc. There was no fruit, the coffee was weak, and the toaster didn't work but the other items made up for it.
We will definitely return to this motel whenever we travel though or visit Amarillo again.
I usually get the manager's business card if one is available. The manager of this motel is Ricky Patel. I have noticed that the other Super 8 motels that I found to be exceptional were also managed by a member of the Patel family; e.g., Vic Patel in Blanding, Utah. I also remember other Super 8's with managers with the last name of Patel. I recall that they were satisfactory but not quite as nice as these managed by Ricky and Vic.
