The Staybridge is tucked back in niche of commercial land just a block or two off the I-40 corridor. I guess all the I-40 frontage is gone now, so this spot is what was left over, without pushing the hotel out to where all the other hotels are being built on the western edge of Amarillo, before you get to Cadillac Ranch, or the cattle feed lot (poor cows all crammed in that smelly place!!!). There's lots of retail/residential (maybe too much) around this hotel, so restaurant aren't too far away.
Despite it's hiding place off the freeway, my IPhone GPS found Staybridge.
The 1st Impression:
(Note: You never get a 2nd chance to make a good 1st impression)
We arrived very tired after 6pm, but the desk wasn't sure if the room was cleaned yet. This seemed to create a very frazzled front desk. (short staff issue).
After locating my reservation, they immediately lost it, so they had to re-enter it again, resulting in the longest check-in ever. (Also, if you you're going to need my license plate number, please tell me online...(when I make the reservation), so I don't have to walk out to my car to get it...(I mean..I'm old, I'm tired, and I'm already grumpy, OK?)
Clean, spacious, with small kitchen, but with the standard wall unit A/C unit that was the noisiest ever for a newer hotel. Also, thanks for the free popcorn, but the microwave didn't work...Oh, it ran...it just didn't cook. The refrigerator did work, but made funny sounds as if it was having a baby refrigerator. The little kitchen has no drawers, so if you want a spoon or fork, you have to play hide and seek thru the cabinets to find them. Note: All the rooms have door-closers on them that seem to slam the doors shut, so thaey announce whenever anyone on your floor is either coming or going. Not a good thing at 11pm. There was no ice maker in the refrigerator and apparently no ice maker on our floor, so I had to go to the 1st floor kitchen to get ice.
Pretty standard fare nowadays for similar hotels, except my milk was lumpy(:(), so no Raisin Bran for me.
Nice, comfortable furnishings.
Only one, so I don't know how you handle all (4) floors if it gets broken.
They have a nice covered pool area, and a nice grassy patio area in the rear of the property. They also have a very nice, lush, grassy area for your pets, (but no poop bag dispenser provided).
