My husband and I truly enjoyed the Motel Safari. We stayed one night in Tucumcari on our way to AZ and luckily found this motel on TripAdvisor. Why stay in a chain motel when you can experience a 50s style mom and pop style accommodation? The owners were extremely friendly and provided great recommendations on where to eat and grab a cocktail after a long day of driving. We enjoyed hearing the history of the motel and Tucumcari and explored the Route 66 strip of the town. You can see that the residents are slowly restoring the town to its glory days. Our room was spotless, the decor straight out of the 50s, and the bed and pillows very comfortable. There are chairs outside the door and a patio for people watching Rates are very reasonable and the motel is unique!
