Loved this old fashioned but updated motel. Really nice hot water for a bubble bath, very near Dels restaurant where we ordered take out, and a nice lady at reception. Great spot to bring a dog with grass nearby plus a park next door.

I was happy to find this motel open and with a room. I noticed that several of the motels in Tucumcari were closed (maybe for the Winter)? This was a budget motel, but my room was clean, comfortable and well-maintained, with a Route 66 vibe. I probably would have given it 4 stars, except there was no blow dryer. Otherwise,...

We were on our way home from Vegas and Tucumari was the right distance to stop for the night. I searched Trip Advisor to see what hotels were available and reviews for them. This hotel had gotten alot of good reviews and had good ratings so we booked it online. The room was retro looking and very clean. The room...

Stayed one night on a cross-country trip. Great, personable service, clean rooms, nice beds, and our pleasure to support a non-chain hotel. Good wifi, good coffee shop, really neat antique planes and cars on the property.

Found this motel on Trip Advisor on a quick trip home to ND from AZ. It is retro, right in keeping with ít name and advertising. It was honestly the cleanest motel that we have stayed in for some time. Even the sheets smelled great!!

First stop from Missouri to California traveling with dog and this was perfect! Not far off the highway, expression bar was AMAZING, rooms were clean, and beds were comfortable. The patch of grass for dogs was just that, a patch, haha. However, it didn't bother my pup one bit. Front desk was more than helpful, talking with us about routes...

This motel was suggested by another motel owner in town when we tried to get a room there. Very glad they did! While we usually stay at the big name hotels to earn points or redeem free rooms, decided that a stay on Rte. 66 required stepping outside our comfort zone! Room was clean, quiet and had both microwave and...

Nice beds, nice showers, has fridge & micro....good pricing. Away from busy freeway and grass out front for the dogs. Will be going back the next time we are traveling to the mid-west. Friendly folks.

We stopped here while driving through to the Grand Canyon from Texas with our RV. The staff were very accommodating and there is absolutely pride in ownership. You can tell the owners put a ton of time, money and effort into this place. The rooms were very retro but still clean and everything worked great. The little cafe made great...

Absolutely fabulous place to stay in Tucumcari! The owners are friendly and made me feel welcome. I stayed 2 nights just to soak up all the Route 66 history. Very pet friendly- nice grass area in front and a park next door to motel. The room was sleek and clean- very retro. Good wifi, tv, microwave and the adjacent coffee...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Historic Route 66 Motel is a mid-century modern hotel that is similar in style and atmosphere to hotels and homes designed by Mies van der Rohe, Joseph Eichler, and Oscar Niemeyer. Built in 1963, both the exterior and interior is more than a little reminiscent of "California Modern", a style that was so popular until the latter sixties. Our mission is to provide clean, private, and comfortable overnight accommodations for guests at an extremely reasonable rate. Refrigerators and microwaves are available in select rooms. The Motel also includes a popular European Style Espresso Bar on the west wing where guests receive a 10% discount on all items and an exterior corridor, where guests can park directly, or nearly directly, in front of their rooms. The Historic Route 66 Motel is operated by a professional staff directly managed by the owners. ... more   less
