Kiva Hotel Amarillo
Ranked #60 of 72 Hotels in Amarillo
Reviewed 17 May 2015

Stayed here one night in April 2015, travelling along Route 66 from Las Vegas to Amarillo and back, we are from England. When we arrived the front of the hotel looked good, then inside reception also looked good. We were told to take our car to the rear of the hotel to park outside our room, boy o boy what a shock, it looked like a rubbish tip at the back, wasn't sure we would find our car there in the morning, it was run down and disgusting. Wanted to cry when we saw the room it was filthy, dated, mismatched furniture, electrics looked iffy, TV out of the ark. The only reason we didn't leave immediately was that we had travelled hundreds of miles that day and we were dog tired. Next morning there was no hot water for a shower, something else that didn't really surprise us. Out of curiosity we want to look where we were supposed to have brakfast, the guy in charge of the kitchen breakfast area looked like a vagrant and was scruffy and dirty, we watched as he took a metal bucket off the floor in the kitchen, put it on a table and commence to wash the table with water from the same bucket, needless to say we didn't eat breakfast there. This hotel is a joke do not stay here.

Room Tip: Just don't stay there.

This hotel is cheap for a reason! It has a sketchy bar inside the lobby, which attracts sketchy people trying to dance with you and slip you drugs. The rooms have window units in them patched up in the windows with pieces of plywood. The bath room had mold on the wall. The night desk clerk was very rude.

This room does not deserve even a one. It's the absolute WORST place we've stayed. We've recently stayed in Colby Ks, Estes Park Co, Santa Fe Nm and here on a round trip from Lawrence Ks through all these states and then to Oklahoma before we go back home. We thought the worst place was going to be the motel 6 in Colby but it by passed this hotel by a lot. We will NEVER stay here again. My husband and I itched and felt like there was something crawling on us but couldn't see anything. The best part of the place is the lobby and hot tub. The bathroom door didn't latch, the cook for the hot breakfast was wearing a stocking cap while he cooked and it seemed so depressing and unfriendly area to eat so we've decided to just eat somewhere else and just get out of there as fast as we could. When we get home I'll be washing all our stuff in HOT water and spraying our luggage for bugs before I put them into storage. Do yourself a favor and do NOT stay here.

Checked in saw and smelled the room and got a refund and went to Microtel a mile away for $14 more we got a beautiful spacious king room
Don't waste money and risk an allergic reaction to the mildew and mold at Lakiva

Also the very pleasant clerk took out a notebook and recorded why I wanted a refund ---they had pages of comments in the book I was not the first

I also know now that a room with half the room number missing is probably going to be a problem.

The rooms were nasty, not even considering the guest which who were rude and dirty, the rooms has outdated TV's, walls, and beds. The employees were rude and were to busy worrying about who much people are in a room. I would never recommended this hotel (or shack) to anybody in a lifetime.
