“Bizarre experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

Paid the Indian owner in cash. A few hours later were resting in the room when we had a knock on the door. It was the Indian owner and TWO POLICEMEN! The owner claimed we had stayed last night and did not leave or pay for another night! We stayed in Santa Rosa NM the night before and were having car trouble, so we only made it Tucumcari. We looked all over for the receipt but could not find it - I assume we never got one. We explained that we spent the night in Santa Rosa at a Motel 6 and the police should call and confirm. By this time we had convinced them we were legit and they told the owner he needed to let us stay, but we just wanted out of there before something else weird happened. RUN AWAY! AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!

Room Tip: Stay at the Historic Route 66 Hotel down the road - very nice owner, clean, big rooms, quiet, no sca...

DON'T STAY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Payed for one night and after a few hours had police knocking at the door with the owner of the hotel. The owner claimed that we had already stayed one night and our time was up one the same day. I was staying there with my father, and he can back me up He didn't give us a receipt so we couldn't really fight back. Had to pack up and leave without getting our money back.

Nice clear motel. However, the indina woman at the dest will interrupt the indina man while he attempts to answer customer questions, later belittle customers over the cost of 3 dollar mad servies that are included in the room chages and make repeated request that the custom not makenthe room smelly.

At first, I passed this off as a second language thing, but later (when confronted) she made it very clear that she spoke and understood English very and was trying to save as much money as possible (I guess even at the customers loss of mad services).

By contrast, the indina man was very customer friendly!

The most hotel room you can get for $23.95. It was clean and comfortable and even came with juice, cereal and milk for breakfast. The room was small but for one or two people just needing to get a night's sleep it is perfect. The guy at the counter was very nice.
