Reviewed 22 July 2016

We were greatly surprised. After a 12 hour drive we landed on a little paradise. Great customer service, they offer coffee, orange juice and water 24 hr a day. Very clean, and newly remodeled. The mattresses were great, maybe new, we had a restful night. Decent continental breakfast and a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

There seemed be no average-priced rooms here until we came across this place. It is located just off the interstate, and someone told us it used to be the Microtel. We had been traveling for several nights, and the beds here were the best of anywhere we stayed. The AC worked well, even though it was nearly 100 when we...

The hotel is clean and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Wish all hotels had this type of service. My one main problem is that we are on the 1st floor and we can hear every step the people above our room takes. Would definitely recommend staying on the second floor.

This hotel was very convenient, just off the highway, and still within easy reach of the main attractions on the Route 66 main strip. It is individually owned, which you don't encounter so often, and the front desk staff is very knowledgeable. A very large two-story room houses the good-sized pool and a hot tub area. There isn't a lot...

This place was a real surprise in the middle of no where. It is on Historic Route 66 and the price was exactly as advertised! The staff was very friendly and I was shocked to find that this hotel was not new but it looked like it had just been built. The indoor pool and hot tub was worth the...

We found this place traveling across the country. It is exceptionally clean and well maintained. Good breakfast. Reasonably priced and the staff is outstanding. We make it a point to stop there as we travel between the midwest and Arizona as it has become one of our favorite places to stay .Highly recommend

Found this place online before a trip. Made reservation for our first stop is our trip. Loved the clean comfortable room. Any time I travel back through there would be no hesitation to stop in and get a relaxing night of rest.

I rolled in a little late pulling a trailer. Jessika let me park in a very good spot. The rooms were very clean. The personnel were friendly and helpful. Plenty of breakfast to choose from. They have a hot tub and fitness room.

Stayed at the Desert Inn after a long drive from Az. The AC is cold and they do let you have pets for a smaller amount then other hotels around. It's on the lower end of the other hotels around it in Tucumcari but it suited our needs as a family of four. Our two girls enjoyed time in their...

We stopped here for a night and were very happy with our stay. Our teens enjoyed the indoor pool, and there were plenty of good options for free breakfast in the morning! The hotel has been nicely remodeled and everything was in good condition.
