I read the reviews and decided to give Desert Inn a try. It's a nice inexpensive ($60-$66) hotel. The people that worked there were nice, rooms were comfortable and clean, and they have an indoor pool and hot tub, which is a bennie when you don't know what the weather's going to be like. Breakfast (included) consists of scrambled eggs,...

We loved our stay here at the Desert Inn. Excellent hotel and excellent staff. The front desk girl "Hannah" was very nice and helpful. She was really patient with my 4 year old son who discovered the hang up button on the hotel phone. LOL This hotel is very clean and has really nice rooms and facilities. The location is...

I almost never give 5 stars but the Desert Inn deserves it. It is clean, quiet, friendly, beautifully landscaped, everything works, good breakfast, no up charge (that I remember) for the dog, and all for a very moderate price. It is just a very likable place. This was by far the nicest place we stopped enroute from MN to California....

My parents and I found this gem of a place and we were so impressed. The staff was super helpful and friendly, the room was very clean and the beds were the best we had on our two week trip. The breakfast bar included in the amazing affordable price and was excellent. Again everything was clean, new and very affordable....

This is a nice remodeled older hotel. Opt for a room on the south side for a view of Tucumcari Hill in the morning. There is no elevator to get to the second floor though. The staff (Jesseka) is friendly even after working long hours. There is also a small breakfast buffet.
