After reviewing hotel possibilities in Tucumcari, and with our usual confidence level with the Holiday Inn Express brand, we booked a room here.
The check-in process was "neutral", neither good nor bad. We were not acknowledged as Priority Club members, not a big deal, but they are supposed to do that.
The room on the second floor had one nightstand ... we called and asked for a room with two nightstands and two lamps, and was told all rooms in the hotel are of this configuration. The innkeeper asked if there was anything else ... Told him the room was dark ... He asked if there was anything else ... I gave up.
The furnishings and carpet appear dated, and the sofa was full of dust across the back of it. Actually, the entire room seemed a bit dusty, and tired. It did have a refrigerator and microwave and tiny bar area.
The WiFi was easy to connect and responsive but repeatedly caused us to re-login ... very irritating. We also heard the sounds of automatically opening doors (probably the front door of the hotel) all night ... Like thunder in the distance.
At breakfast, we asked for the traditional Holiday Inn Express cinnamon rolls. We were told they "ran out yesterday". The scrambled eggs resembled yellow pellets. The coffee was good. Overall, not a memorable breakfast.
On checkout they had no record that I had even checked in. WHAT? It took 10 minutes to get it straight; they did give me a reduced rate for their problem.
We would not return to this hotel ... It was a reminder that Holiday Inn still has a problem with consistency in its brands. One good stay does not equate to an equally good stay in their next property.
