We stayed one night, driving in from Colorado through a Texas Panhandle blizzard. The room was very clean, comfortable, and a welcoming. The bed was great, pillows really great, and we slept very well. The breakfast was above average for this type of hotel. We would stay here again.
Enjoyed my stay at this new hotel in Amarillo. Breakfast was the norm but they kept it stocked. Rooms were clean. Rodeo weekend and they didn’t miss a beat. If I’m coming this way again, this will be my first pick.
