Do yourself a favor and don't pass through Tucumcari without staying at this nifty motel on Historic Route 66. My husband, father-in-law and I stayed there recently and we'll never forget it. Kevin and Nancy could not possibly be more hospitable. They have a true passion for this place and the industry in general. We didn't even care what else there was to do in Tucumcari (although I'm sure there is plenty to do and Kevin and Nancy were great about filling us in on what to see and where to dine). It was just so nice to sit outside our room in the comfy chairs in the shade and watch the world go by. You will be transported back to another, simpler time - but with all the comforts by today's standards. The rooms are fantastic and very, very charming. Thanks, Kevin and Nancy for a wonderful experience.
