“scorpion in our bed”
Reviewed May 22, 2009

accomodations poor, door wouldn't close properly, thus dead bolt lock didn't work. in middle of night, my wife found a scorpion crawling on her in the bed. when we reported this to the front desk the next morning, the lady said with a slight laugh: "Well, it is scorpion and tarantula season." Since they don't mention this on their website, we thought you should know. If you don't want scorpions or tarantulas in your bed, stay somewhere else.

after going to the Travel lodge in tucumcari and being disgusted, we looked for another hotel and I had a coupon for the Super 8. We were able to get it for $52 per night, which ended up being cheaper than the Travel Lodge. We walked in and the clerk, Wanda, was very helpful. She accepted the coupon, plus gave me a CDL discount. We stayed for 5 days. Each day after we left, housekeeping came in and cleaned the room. Although the room could use an update on it's furnishings, it was spacious. The breakfast was the normal continental breakfast. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The Assistant Manager, Willy, is the person we checked out with, he said that if we returned he would give us a better rate than we had got. The plus side, the room didn't stink and had no bugs!!!!

  • Liked — the staff and it didn't stink or had bugs!!
  • Disliked — room furnishings need updated

We stayed here as part of our Route 66 tour this year. As a Family of 5 from the UK we like to prebook. We decided to stay here because I couldn't book the Blue Swallow online (you do it by e-mails) and because of the review here and others elsewhere. The motel is small and ok. Small reception, dark decor makes the corridors seem gloomy, all very 70s. We had two rooms - my wife and I had a huge suite - all the furniture seemed worn - the room smelled damp - the carpet was damp I'm sure. The air con was damp smelling too. Our Daughters room was ok though.

Breakfast was self service in a small room off reception - small range of food but more that enough to keep us going.

Next time the Blue Swallow now that I've seen it featured on a recent UK TV programme, but this place is ok.

For a value hotel, Super 8 is this road warrior's cheap hotel of choice. Of course one always takes a big risk when taking the money saving choice but with Super 8 sometimes one can really score, and such is the case with the Super 8 in Tucumcari. I got a "suite" with a king sized bed for $41 bucks!!! Of course it's not a real suite, just one big ol room but hey, it's nicer than most Comfort Inns you'd pay twice the price for. And it's perfectly clean and cute and comfy!!! Just the thing after driving 700 miles down I 40 thru the middle of nowhere!
