Roadrunner Lodge, Tucumcari, New Mexico

The owners of the Roadrunner Lodge have painstakingly worked to keep the 1960s vibe alive, even going so far as to broadcasting a short range radio station playing hits and commercials from that era. The 60's memorabilia and vintage design features really do a great job of transporting guests back to a time when motor hotels such as this were thriving along the route.

This is a truly authentic Route 66 motel and deserves it's many five-star reviews on TripAdvisor. Guests also receive a complimentary breakfast at the "Kix on 66" diner across the road.

As their Facebook page says, the Roadrunner Lodge provides the modern Route 66 road tripper a classic Americana lodging experience with 21st century comforts, including air conditioning, Wi-Fi and HD satellite TV.

"I had a wonderful stay here and can attest to the comfort of their beds and the warmth of their showers! In the summer months the air conditioning is a godsend. The owners were very pleasant and had good local knowledge."

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
