We found the motel on Trip Advisor using the reviews while driving. I feel we scored on thiis selection. Desert Inn is super nice with clean modern rooms. Staff was very helpful with everything including recommendations for dinner. They have pet friendly rooms, exercise room and indoor pool. Highly recommend!!

When travelling East or West on I-40, most folks want a good, clean hotel at a good price. The Desert Inn allows you to save $30+ by getting a slightly smaller room without having to sacrifice a good night's sleep. My wife and I were graciously welcomed by the desk clerk,Twyla who gave a thorough run-down of all the amenities...

We enjoyed our stay and this was a nice clean place close to the interstate. The rooms were well appointed and they had a very nice breakfast. The staff was friendly and courteous and very helpful. I recommend this place.

Unexpected find in Tucumcari NM. Very clean, cozy and friendly. Great value (Make sure you book online like Booking.com for savings). Check in smooth and welcoming. Desk Clerk gets kudos for that. Much better I'm sure than chin hotels. Waffle bar and cereals for breakfast. I will be sure to revisit on my return trip. Please, extra thanks to the...

They've made a good effort to update an older motel and it is clean. Having a microwave and fridge in the room is nice but there is very little closet space because of this. Also a few odd things like power cords running up the wall and the toilet paper is across the room from the toilet. The fitness room...

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...
