I stayed at this hotel on July 24th, on a family driving trip from Colorado to California. The hotel is situated in East Gallup, about two blocks from the interstate. The hotel is in an area just outside of the town proper, which had several advantages to me. First, is it located a little further from the railroad tracks, which is the defining characteristic of the town (other than Route 66). It is also in an area that is populated by only newer hotels and restaurants. If you are looking for the "classic" Route 66 feel, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a new and modern hotel, it is fantastic.
My daughters and I were looking for a place to lay our heads, relax, and swim in the pool. The hotel was fantastic in all aspects. The lobby was clean and modern, and the pool and hot tub were outstanding. The hotel was very clean in all public areas, and still had the "new" smell to it. Out rooms were on the second floor and faced the railroad tracks across the highway. We never heard even one peep from the trains all night. The room itself was immaculate and very modern. We had the two queen room, which also had a nice separate living room area. The furniture was new, modern, and very comfortable. The bathroom as also spotless. The next morning we ate at the breakfast buffet, and it was also very good. My only knock, and it is a small one, is that the breakfast service stops at 9am sharp. Most hotels extend this until 10am. If you arrive at 9:01am, you had better be finished eating, because everything is put away at that time. After looking online and through other sites to make the reservation, I elected to reserve by calling the hotel directly. I received a rate of $90 for the night, two weeks before traveling. For the cost, is was a very good value in Gallup. The other decent hotel in town, the Hampton Inn, was nearly $40 more a night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As the only 4 Time Platinum Award Winning Choice Hotel in the entire state of New Mexico and recent inductee into the Trip Advisor's Hall of Fame (only hotel in Gallup to have received this honor) you will enjoy the best hotel Gallup has to offer, but don't take my word for it, just read the reviews. Gallup, NM is known for an abundance of variety, but what you will enjoy and remember the most are our beautiful Sunrises and Sunsets, which are enjoyed by many from our spacious lobby. Remember these items when traveling through this area. Our days are mild, but because of our elevation (above 6500 ft) a jacket for the evenings, a camera, plenty of bottled water (if you don't have any, just ask at the front desk) and lots of time. Gallup, NM and the Southwest is not an area to be rushed through, so take your time and enjoy the people, the food, the shopping and the scenery, and when you return you can relax in your amazing triple sheeted bed, (only hotel in Gallup that triple sheets). As a special bonus you will enjoy looking at all our military/veterans photo's and items that are on display here. Our hotel's GM is a veteran of the United States Air Force and we are all proud of our display of photo's of local veterans, from the Navajo Code Talkers to Medal of Honor Recipients who have stayed here we cater to all military and veterans. Please make sure you present your military or veterans ID Card to ensure the best rate and to allow us to honor you with a hand shake, a "Thank You" and a "Welcome Home" along with a folded American Flag. ... more less
