The owner was friendly and chatty. The sheets were clean, but that was about it. The rug hadn't been vacuumed in awhile, but I didn't mind wearing shoes. What I draw the line at is bugs.

The sign in front of the Palimino says 'why pay more?" and if all one wants is a bed for the night and nothing else, why pay more indeed? Old Route 66 through Tucumcari is awash in deteriorating 1950s-vintage motels. These places offer very cheap basic lodging to someone traveling alone who just wants a no-amenities bed.
