I had never stayed at the Buckaroo before but I was determined to see whether some other favorable ratings were correct. First of all, the rates run less than half of some of the other highly-rated motels in Tucumcari. I didn't really know what to expect but I was more than pleasantly surprised. The room, while not expansive, was very clean and neat. It looked like it had recently been repainted and the carpeting looked brand new. The bathroom was neat and tidy and had more than enough towels and wash cloths. The TV was not a flat-screen but it was quite new and the available channels came in without any problems. The wi-fi signal was also very strong. This stay will definitely NOT be my last at the Buckaroo.

We came into Tucumcari late in the evening, and saw that many establishments had already filled or closed. The Buckaroo's neon sign was still shining, though, and we registered. Same minor issues with a hot room for the first hour or so, but the A/C eventually more than cooled it off. Comfortable beds, a clean room, and a very good price.

Stayed there as part of our Big 2013 Road Trip. Great neon sign. Spacious & clean room - not fancy or new, but decent, with original furniture (only minor complaint - A/C took a while to cool the room). Very reasonable price. Friendly people, & a friendly cat too. Would definitely stay again.

This has been the best place we have stayed throughout our trip. Friendly hosts checked our family in quickly and hassle free. Our room was spotless and had alot of character. It was very quiet and the ac worked great. At less than $35 per night, this is absolutely a great deal. Way better than a chain hotel!

If you're going to stay in Tucumcari, for goodness sake, don't go for the Super 8 or Hampton Inn. Instead, get a little taste of American history and spend the night at a motel that travelers might've visited during the heyday of Route 66. The Buckaroo fits this bill very nicely indeed. A quiet, clean, motor court, as they used to call them, with friendly office and housekeeping staff that are a pleasure to talk to. The rooms are basic, but clean and appear recently refurbished. You'll still get a key instead of a plastic card. Plus, you can't beat the nightly rate.

I wholeheartedly recommend the Buckaroo. You'll want to take a photo of the neon sign, too.
