Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed 2 nights. Loved the place. Good linens, restored rooms with new carpets fresh paint and plaster. What a value. Highly recommend for those of us who seek the retro 66 experience. Loved the little frogs on the property but could do without Tucumcari 's giant grasshoppers and beetles. But they weren't in the rooms thank god!

This is an excellent place to stay. We were here three nights. The rooms were clean, the staff went out of their way to see that every possible need was met. They even provide an old towel to dust your shoes or clean your car! The coffee shop was fun, a nice place to sit and enjoy early before the heat of the day starts to roll in. This is the place to stay on Historic Route 66!

The rooms were clean and had a great 1960's style. Friendly staff. The rates are about half what you would expect to pay for a hotel, but be aware that this is a very basic motel. No pool, exercise room, in room refrigerator, or coffee pot. So if you are happy with a nice room with a cool style for a great price, and don't need or use all those extras, you will like this place as much as we did.

This was a cool spot on Route 66. Lots of retro roadside stuff on this particular strip. We stopped here after an 18+ hour drive and needed rest. It's definitely one of the best options on the route and probably the only pet friendly one at a fair price. I felt safe as all of the other guests were pleasant travelers. The man and woman working there (the owners?) were very friendly. The shower had great pressure and lots of hot water. The beds aren't luxurious but they're a good place to rest your head after a long drive. My only complaint is that I am very sensitive to smells and the room did smell stuffy and like pets to me when we walked in. No one else noticed or complained though. The attached coffee shop makes a great latte, so dip in there for a drink before you head back out on the road. Good value all around.

Traveling from Georgia to Gallup nm we decided to stop in tucumcari for the night. Looking on trip advisor I saw the usual chains but traveling with two dogs did not want to pay high pet fees especially since the dogs are cleaner than most kids, so chose this hotel. Great choice. Friendly owners, neat retro rooms, hair dryer on request and coke products. Will stay again in travels as room was clean and environment was friendly.

We called from the road made a reservarion but arrived late after the normal checkin time of 12 midnite the owners were very accommodating... and we enjoyed our stay... do yourself a favor and stay I would support them any day for some nostalgia... class and history over the McHotel chains along the hwy any day. And the prices are unbeatable

This was recommended by one of our guidebooks--and they were totally right! Friendly staff (the owner even froze our ice containers overnight so we'd have them ready for our cooler!), pet friendly. (The night of our stay, we had Barney, the Great Dane, next door, 3 cats in another room, 3 dogs in another--that I know of.)

Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, very quiet--did not hear a peep from any of the guests after we went to bed. Another big plus--it's the type of place I'd recommend to any other female travelers as being a great choice--we sat outside our door and enjoyed the breeze and view of the park across the street in complete comfort.

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
