My parents and I found this gem of a place and we were so impressed. The staff was super helpful and friendly, the room was very clean and the beds were the best we had on our two week trip. The breakfast bar included in the amazing affordable price and was excellent. Again everything was clean, new and very affordable....

This is a nice remodeled older hotel. Opt for a room on the south side for a view of Tucumcari Hill in the morning. There is no elevator to get to the second floor though. The staff (Jesseka) is friendly even after working long hours. There is also a small breakfast buffet.

The rooms are clean and have everything you need including a refigerator, microwave, large screen TV with HBO etc. There is even a fitness center and free breakfast. Staff is very friendly and helpful. All for under $70. I would recommend this place to any budget conscious traveler.

Stopped on way to AZ it was clean, nice, great shower, comfy bed. We stayed on ground floor, there is no elevator. Did not use the pool but it looked nice. Rooms are not huge, so might be crowded for family. Hannah was very helpful! She recommended dells to eat at. Very good! I would stay here again.

Just when you can't drive any further and you need a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay for a decent price, this is the place your looking for. No complaints would stay there again on my next trip out west.

We were heading out to Phoenix, and had planned out trip to include a day in Albuquerque to do some shopping and eating, as we had lived there many years ago. I had looked at the lodging in Tucumcari, and selected the Desert Inn. It is a nice place to spend the night. Check in was quick and easy. It...

This is a basic hotel that offers decent rooms at a reasonable price. The rooms are on the small side, but have everything you need for a comfortable stay. A basic breakfast is included in the room rate and it saves you from having to go out and find breakfast somewhere. The hotel does not have elevators so if you...
