Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

All though the rooms are small in size it does not take away from the experience, I personally thought the window nook was adorable. Very nice staff , great pool and hot tub both clean although no way to get the jets working , the panel button was gone. Vegan and cruelty free soaps and a clean shower mat in the room and the breakfast was nice for the hotel size. Would definitely recommend!

Due to problems at our first hotel, we left at 0330 in the morning from Emporia and got to Tucumcari before noon, way too early to stop. The front desk man, Davonne, was super gracious and kind. Didn't see any of the facility..

The pool and hot tub were nice. The pool was cold brrr. The staff was sweet and helpful. I'm gluten free so breakfast was not helpful at all. The bed was uncomfortable. For a place to sleep it was fine.

Simple hotel. Staff was accommodating. Room was small. Bed was great. Very minimal breakfast items. Mostly cereal and waffles. They couldn’t keep fresh coffee available or condiments filled fast enough. Wi-Fi didn’t work.

Very convenient and easy to get to, right off I-40. Very clean facility, room and parking lot well kept and very well lit, especially nice when you have a car full of stuff. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great price. Overall, a win when traveling though New Mexico and needing a place to stay.

Susan E wrote a review July 2023
Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania75 contributions36 helpful votes
The room we were given had a very strong smell of detergent upon entering. It was very overwhelming to the extent it was making me ill in the hour my husband and I were in the room. Because we used the bathroom and a soap and hand towel in addition to sitting on a bed we were not refunded our money as we requested. Also the door hinge was pulled from the wall preventing the closing of the door correctly. One final issue was the “creative” electrical work. Doubt that it is up to code. Picture attached. We did ask the girl at the registration desk about the smell and she told us all the rooms smell like this. She said it’s the cleaning products they use. The desk clerk called the boss concerning a refund and we were told no as I said above. We left anyway. Becoming ill wasn’t worth the $100. Across the street was a Holiday Inn Express which is wonderful.

This hotel was such a blast to go to! Great dining, great cleaning, and even greater employees! In particular, Trista was extremely helpful for our stay here. I remember her in particular because I had shared the reason me and my family were there, which was for my Grandma’s funeral, and she said such kind words about how sorry she was for our loss. All of that on top of being extremely polite and accommodating!! The desert inn sure knows how to treat their costumers! Have a blessed day Y’all! 🩷🩷

I arrived June 12th and after a long day of driving this is a place where I want to be. Trista at the front desk made checking in so easy and quick. The room was comfortable and cleaner than most places. The breakfast was delicious. Definitely would stay again.
