I last reviewed the Route 66 Motel around 2010-11 and if there are any changes they are for the better. We travel from Maryland to Arizona each winter and return in the spring and always stay at the Route 66 if near Tucumcari for the nite. We travel with our Golden and usually ask for the pet suite. We have always been satisfied with all our stays there. The owners are super friendly and if you call them from the road about 1hr. before your arrival they will make sure either the heat or a/c is on so your room is ready for you. They also operate a morning expresso bar next door to satisfy you breakfast needs. We have been doing motels arcoss the country for the past eleven years and the Historic Route 66 Motel is one our better stops. No, its not the Marriott or the Hilton, but it is a darn nice inexpensive 50's retro motel on Route 66. And if I can throw in another plug. You must have dinner at Dels Restaurant just up the street.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Historic Route 66 Motel is a mid-century modern hotel that is similar in style and atmosphere to hotels and homes designed by Mies van der Rohe, Joseph Eichler, and Oscar Niemeyer. Built in 1963, both the exterior and interior is more than a little reminiscent of "California Modern", a style that was so popular until the latter sixties. Our mission is to provide clean, private, and comfortable overnight accommodations for guests at an extremely reasonable rate. Refrigerators and microwaves are available in select rooms. The Motel also includes a popular European Style Espresso Bar on the west wing where guests receive a 10% discount on all items and an exterior corridor, where guests can park directly, or nearly directly, in front of their rooms. The Historic Route 66 Motel is operated by a professional staff directly managed by the owners. ... more less
