In the process of driving across country I usually stop at Red Roof if available. I prefer to spend a few extra dollars for the Business King to give me the extra amenities. This was a typical Red Roof in most cases. they had a better Breakfast option then a lot do and the staff was very efficient. I would... More

This Inn was recommended by my sister. Difficulty finding this Inn when travelling West. This was my first time in Amarillo and had difficulty finding this Inn.It would be great if they were able to put their exit on their site. Once there was greeted by the staff and check in was great. When I entered the room there was... More

WiFi was awful!! Flies in the room. Requested fly swatter...none ever arrived. Front desk never called back. Shower pressure was great. Breakfast was just adequate. Would have liked a bagel and cream cheese. Stated my concerns at checkout, but clerk just said "sorry" and moved on. This was my second time there, but will research other options for next year.

We had a very good stay here. The staff was nice, the rooms were big, everything was clean and in perfect condition. Big flat screen TV in the room, also a mini fridge, microwave, all that stuff. Bathroom was nice, took a bath here. The water drained kinda slow though, but the water pressure and temperature were just fine. Bed... More

The bed was okay, the sheets had so much bleach in them it smelled like cat urine. I was tired after driving 13+ hours so at that point I didn't care. The property is in dire need of maintenance and upgrade from falling apart. Shower backed up from the minute I turned it on. It should have been about $20... More

Reception staff pleasant, room acceptable for price paid, bed was reasonably comfortable, shower pressure excellent, pretty quiet rooms considering so close to the highway, courtesy transfer to the big Texan restaurant was the bonus and is a must do for dinner, towels pretty thin but all-in-all fine for an Overnighter. We were too late for the continental breakfast so can't... More

Low quality hotel with very little to offer. Tried it because it had a better price compared to similar rated hotels in the area. Pro tip, just book online because the hotel will not give you as good a price directly. The room felt dirty and not very secure, the light in the bathroom didn't work, breakfast wasn't great. I...

Clean and comfortable. Quiet because of distance from the interstate. Had pizza from 575 Pizza in the room but it was not as hot as we have had in the past. Sorry to see you were not allowed to take breakfast items to your room.

Hubby and I stayed here for 1 night passing our way through Route 66. We arrived late and were met by a lovely lady working front reception.

This has been my choice hotel for a very long time. Tried another hotel 1 night but check out and moved back the very next day. I will only be going here from now on. This motel is quite friendly and has fast food and sit down restaurant within walking distance. With truck parking lot on back street behind.
