Just when you can't drive any further and you need a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay for a decent price, this is the place your looking for. No complaints would stay there again on my next trip out west.

I had looked at the lodging in Tucumcari, and selected the Desert Inn. It is a nice place to spend the night. Check in was quick and easy. It...

This is a basic hotel that offers decent rooms at a reasonable price. The rooms are on the small side, but have everything you need for a comfortable stay. A basic breakfast is included in the room rate and it saves you from having to go out and find breakfast somewhere. The hotel does not have elevators so if you...

This Inn was a good stop on our road trip. The check in clerk was very friendly and helpful. Suggested Del's for dinner, which we enjoyed. Good food if a bit touristy and overly decorated for Christmas. Our room was very clean and a good value. Pet friendly was a big plus.

We stayed here for 1 night while on our road trip. After driving for 12 hours from Houston we decided to stop for the night and found this place. It is a cute and cosy place. We had a comfortable bed, hot shower and a simple good breakfast the next day. They also will mail out a postcard for free...

When we returned our room key had been deactivated. We were told we would have to check out and go to another motel because there were no...

I made reservations before string to guarantee our stay at a wonderful hotel. We stayed here several years ago when we had young children for the indoor pool. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The breakfast was very good. Shopping and restaurants nearby. The interstate connection jus half a mile to the south. My only problem here preventing me...
