We stopped by on our way back from Tioga, Tx to Tijeras, NM - after that long drive it was great to pull into Motel Safari and get a room. We had a chance to stay in the luxury suite, and what an awesome job the owners have done to this room. It was beautiful, spacious, and very clean. The outside of the motel was clean, and welcoming. We had a great night's rest. We returned the following weekend and stayed in one of the regular rooms, which was just as comfy and quiet as the suite. If you are going to stay here, be sure to call in advance, they fill up quickly. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the '66', so if you have time make sure you visit with them. Planning to spend more time here next year for 'Rockablily on the Route'.
