    « Very nicely updated »

    The hotel had been recently refurbished, and very nicely at that. Staff was very quick and efficient. It smelled nice when entering which was nice considering the place is down wind of a cattle/slaughter ranch. That isn't the hotels fault, it is a ways away, but boy that place makes your eyes water and your throat gag. There would not be a place in Amarillo to get away from it. Breakfast was great, but I would have like more fruit choices, they had the standard apples, oranges and bananas. very comfortable room and beds.

    We have stayed here before and like it. It is a good hotel, not fancy but always comfortable and quiet even though it is on the interstate. The beds are quite comfortable and the rooms are clean and neat.

    « Enjoyed my stay and the staff »

    Room was very clean, beds firm and comfortable. We were traveling with a big dog and the staff treated us great. Very easy to make reservation and staff was great when we showed up at 11:30 PM at night.

    Pet friendly. Not much to walk dog other than hotel sides. If looking for long scenic views it is a no go. Breakfast typical for hotel. Room beds middle of road. Pool was cold but clean. Check in staff was great. Luggage kart had flat tires but during entire trip across did not find many that worked. Typical for karts.

    Booked off of AA miles. Most reviews were very good with a couple outliers. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Very clean and modern. Nice size room with a sofa to relax on. No noise from the Interstate and only 1.5 miles from the Big Texan Steakhouse. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

    « A pleasant hotel near I-40 »

    Clean, large rooms with comfortable beds and a nice done bathroom. Plenty of outlets for our electronics. Not a large number of towels - only one per person, but overall, very nice. The breakfast was very good - they have great biscuits!

    « Very helpful staff, pet friendly hotel »

    I stayed here on my way to Austin with my dog. The hotel was pet friendly and actually had a nice open field next to the hotel and doggie clean up bags in a dispenser outside. When I went to load my car in the morning, my battery had run down. I thought I may need to call a towing service but one of the ladies from housekeeping had a set of jumper cables and a man from maintenance used his pickup help jump my car! The rooms were nice with all the expected amenities and they served a hot breakfast.

    You need to find air freshener that does not smell strong. Non Chemical!!! Hotel clerks need to be more understanding when people have lung problems and not be rude! Sheets should not be washed with scents.

    « Not What I Expected »

    While traveling from the east coast to the west, my wife called this hotel while we were still on the freeway to reserve a room. She tried three times in 45 minutes but no one answered the phone. She finally called the 800 number. She asked if there was room to park a U haul trailer and some place we could walk to eat. She was told yes to both questions. When we got there, we were told to park our SUV and U haul out back on a dirt lot behind the hotel. I was told to park behind a white truck; see photo. That clearly had a red curb. The area was dimly lit. The room was cramped with two queen size beds. It took forever to get hot water in our room. There was no place within walking distance to eat. It was a pet friendly hotel, but only had two small strips of grass. Timothy Glass, author of Just This Side of Heaven and Postcards

    Stayed there on a Saturday night coming in from vacation. Very clean, staff was very courteous and friendly and well informed. Our room was very spacious and clean and so nice. There's not anything bad to say about the room. The breakfast was not he best in the world, but it worked. Will be back.

    Relaxing stay. Nice clean up to date room. Really comfortable bed and pillows. Slept very well. Very quiet room even with being on I-40. Not only did I not hear the interstate, but I didn't hear the adjoining room or hallway noise. Great value! Met all expectations. We slept so well that we slept through breakfast. We hope to try their breakfast the next time we come through Amarillo. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

    « Excellent stay »

    Hotel foyer is very pleasing to the eye. Bed was very comfortable. We arrived late in the evening and the clerk was very quick to get us settled into a room. The breakfast was difficult as one person had gluten and dairy allergies and there was very little to choose from. Overall I recommend this hotel to anyone travelling through the area.

    « overnight stop »

    I booked this Best Western on my points and was really annoyed at check in that they did not have the room I had booked available. This hotel used lots of points. We have stayed at a lot better properties that used less points. The fellow at check in was very I cannot think of another word, Snotty,. We opted to take a lesser value room that was not pet friendly. We do not have pets with us. Most Best Western will offer you a better quality room in this case. Not this one! Also no acknowledgement that you are a platinum member. This hotel has been remodeled and they did a very good job. Rooms are very nice and clean. The breakfast was really good and the morning staff was also very good and professional. This hotel is not close to much of any restaurants without driving.

    « Really good hotel for really good price »

    Got the price via ...wasn't expecting much but located right on Frontage Road so easy on-off access and it was a great room, very comfortable with a desk attendant that just couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The room was quite clean and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was just fine. Staff really could not have been more hospitable!

    The room was very clean and quiet for all the transient travelers that were staying the night. The check in/out procedures were fast and quite efficient. The hotel was somewhat easy to find and because it was at night it appeared that there were quite a few guest staying for the night. It appeared to be many bikers in town for the night.

    « Great one night stay while driving through »

    Made reservations on the Best Western website for our one night stay in Amarillo. The lady working the front desk was very nice and accommodating. My husband has trouble walking so she was able to give me an ADA room I requested very close to the lobby. Had no trouble finding a restaurant nearby for dinner. Room was nice and clean. Hotel is close to the freeway but did not hear any noise from it. Breakfast area is basically the lobby area. Small but we did get a table. Breakfast had a nice selection and the lady kept it well stocked and clean. Very pleased with our stay and will definitely stay here again if in the area.

    « Not the best of BW. »

    The room smelled of over sprayed room freshener. The curtains went over the AC unit making it difficult to maintain a steady comfortable temperature. I tried folding the curtains into the window sill. Hair dryer had an automatic nite light that kept flashing like a strobe. Couldn't find any washcloths until after my shower. Towels were like gauze. Nicely redecorated lobby.

    « Where In the World Is The Best Western »

    When approaching this property from the east on I-40, this hotel is not easy to find. Shortly after exiting I-40 there is a small sign partially obstructed by a tree. The sigh reads Best Western and shows an upside down U. We missed the sign. Had we seen it, it would have had no meaning. When we called the Best Western from the parking lot of a Motel Six, the desk clerk was not helpful. When asked if she was located east or west of the Motel Six she did know. When asked if she was located north or south of I-40, she did not know. She told us she was near a Valero Gas station, of which, there are numerous ones in Amarillo. We finally found the property but the search left us frustrated. It appears to be an older, but well maintained, property with fresh paint and new carpet. Breakfast was below average

    « Road trip »

    This is a very very nice motel. From the outside it looks plain but the inside has been totally remodeled and decorated and is amazing. The beds and pillows are comfortable and the bathroom and flooring is totally upgraded with tile and real or well simulated granite. The frig has a small freezer if you have ice packs and keeps your food well cooled. Breakfast is hot, with variety and delicious. We will stay here every time we travel west to east and back again.

    « Way overpriced for this property »

    Thought we have always enjoyed staying at Best Western hotels, this particular one disappointed us . It was overpriced for the area it is situated in. The lobby is small, which is also the breakfast area. Had eight tables available for the whole hotel. The food was not edible. Egg omelets were rubbery, gravy for biscuits was as watery as soup. The room itself is okay, but no elevator, and no disability handrails at all in the bathrooms. Will not stay at this property again.

    « Back again »

    Website was not easy to use on a mobile device after finding a way around that reservation were made. On check in the young man got easily fluster when I questioned the charges. Several people waiting to check in for over an hour. After getting bill straight an hour later we weren't pleased with the room. It was not up to BW standards. Bed wasn't the pillow top advertised and not sure it was queen sized. Towels were thin and old. Too bad as the place is in a great location and was full. Breakfast was thin on food and not much space for eating as it was packed and standing room only at 0830. Could use some work.

    « Hotel in Amarillo on I-40 »

    When traveling through the Texas Panhandle I always stay in Best Western hotels. In Amarillo this hotel is very convenient, has easy access from Highway, but no noise problem as many do. There are many good restaurants in Amarillo, and the staff here can recommend several. Breakfast is good and staff is always helpful if you have a problem.

    This place is only one mile from the American Quarter Horse Museum and situated on I-40. Access to I-40 East and West is quick and easy; I-27 interchange only a few miles west. A nice place to stay when visiting the Big Texan Restaurant and museums in Amarillo.

    The Staff was very nice. The room was alright. The hotel was difficult to find as it was off the Interstate and on a side road - typical for this area, though. The rooms were quiet, but the noise from the INterstate could be heard all night long.

    « Nice place to stay »

    Nice location right off the 40 and close to plenty of restaurants, including the Big Texan! Our room was clean and quiet. The bed, although comfortable, did seem a little worn. The pillows were small with the foam chunks. Not comfortable to me. Breakfast was the typical complimentary items. Good and filling, but nothing special. Would I stay here again? Yes! I'd just bring my own pillow!

    « Wonderful Hotel! »

    Excellent Staff and up-to-date amenities! Staff was quite professional and they work to take care of all your needs! The rooms are very clean ad provide all the necessities to get anyone by for single or multiple nights. The pool area was kept in excellent condition and was open to all who decide to use it. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone in the area as the staff and amenities are excellent!

    « Best Breakfast »

    First stop of our way back home from Phoenix. Got in late, no problems with check-in. Very comfortable room. The best part of the stay was the next morning during breakfast. We have stayed in a number of hotels that offered free breakfast and this was the BEST! We would surely stay at this location again.

    « Very well kept and modernized hotel »

    Hotel has very new updated rooms and comfortable beds. It looks very clean and is close to The Big Texan Steakhouse. I would stay here again. My only complaint is that the room seemed a little damp and it was more expensive than the Best Western I stayed at in Oklahoma City.

    « Great Service, Easy I-40 Location, So-So Room »

    Very easy on/off I-40 yet no problems with traffic noise. Check-in was easy and above par - after check in I decided I wanted to be on the other side of the building (due to weather) and the clerk changed my room with no fuss. Room was good size and had a slightly larger than standard refrigerator. The beds were comfortable, the shower and commode are in bathroom while sinks are in the entryway hall, and room was generally clean. The downgrade here is the carpet needed a shampoo or replacement. It looked dull, felt waxy, and when I used a tissue to sop up water splashed from sink, it came up dirty. The breakfast was standard and well stocked.

    « Excellent »

    One of the best I have stayed in. Clean, Best Lighting ever, and actually felt like home. Was quiet and was very comfortable. They added the touch of a little bag with goodies in it on our arrival. Nice touch. It was a pleasant stay and would recommend it to family and friends.

    « Good stay »

    We stayed here for one night whilst doing Route 66. On arrival we checked in and spend a couple hours in the pool which we had to ourselves which was very relaxing after a long drive. Room was a very good size, comfortable and had everything we were looking for. Breakfast didn't have many options for me although I'm vegan so never expect too much. If you eat meat and dairy then I think it looked a very good breakfast. Location was great, short drive to the big Texan and Jason's deli, plus a huge Walmart which stocks everything and more. Only negatives were no lift or gym and the laundry machine was broke. All we needed was a comfortable one night stay and it certainly provided that. I would definitely recommend this hotel

    « Middle of the Road »

    We got in late and were very tired. The front desk was very helpful and the decor was nice. When we opened the door to the room, the aroma was unpleasant. The room was clean and the beds comfortable, but the room just smelled old. I have a sensitive nose so it may not bother everyone, in which case the stay was good.

    « GOOD DOGGY PLACE »

    What a comfortable stay for my puppy. Bella was happy, I was happy. For sure if I am in the area, definitely I will stay over in this hotel. Try it your self and see how great the breakfast is. the walking area for my dog was sufficient and Bella enjoyed the area too.

    « A bad experience »

    On our 4 week road trip, we stayed in Best Westerns the whole way and this was by far the worst. First of all, this hotel is in a somewhat sketchy looking area and the door from the outside, which was supposed to require a key, was left unlocked day and night. The breakfast area was tiny and it was very busy when we were there - we had to wait for a table. The poor woman working there could not keep up with the demands such as running out of orange juice, eggs etc. Other staff members were standing around, but did not help her. We also wanted to use our reward points for a free room, but were told we could not do so without having arranged it online prior to making the reservation. A few other Best Western hotels we stayed in on our trip had honored the points on the spot. Would recommend finding another place to stay in Amarillo.

    « Who ever heard of a hotel that won't give you extra pillows? »

    The hotel was fairly easy to get to off the interstate, and they did put us in a room with very little traffic noise. Other than the parking lot behind the hotel, which was used by 18-wheelers during the evening. Fortunately they didn't come in and out all night long, because they were very loud when they were in use. But the main reason for the poor review is service-related. When we got there the place was empty, and it didn't seem to be that full even when we left in the morning. So why wouldn't they give us any extra pillows? When I called the desk to ask for them, all the clerk said was "we don't have any extra pillows, just the ones in the room". I have never heard of a hotel where this is true. I guess this is another example of the "we don't make mistakes" attitude mentioned in another review. In any event, we won't be staying at this hotel again with that sort of "service attitude".

    « Excellent Stay »

    Hotel is updated with well decorated/clean rooms. Bedding was comfortable. Good, free hot/cold breakfast served in the lovely lobby. Our room was very quiet. Would stay again. Many restaurants are within an easy drive. Situated right off I-40.

    « Sad and grouchy front desk »

    On arrival, we were welcomed by a grouchy woman at the front desk. We had reservations stating we had a dog. She asked and we said yes. So the room she was going to give us was not not a "dog room" so we could come back in 2 or 3 hours to be with the dogs. We were not told that their would be a fee for a dog but there was on the bill the next morning. Very happy to have Amarillo in my rear view mirror. Also very expensive for what it is.

    It was nicer than we expected because the surrounding location was a bit "iffy." It's on the east side of city, so was a good stopping place coming back from Colorado on the way to Dallas.

Breakfast assistant provided a tray for me to carry several things back to room - she was very friendly and helpful.

    We stayed in a double queen bed room. Very clean, ac was excellent and the beds/pillows were cozy. Loved the modern look and design. Very relaxing. The complimentary toiletries were definitely spa inspired. We went swimming at 8:30pm and it was breezy and chilly. The front desk lady came out and turned up the heater for the pool water for our remaining swim. Thought that was very thoughtful and great customer service considering we didn't even ask. The morning breakfast was full of yummy options and plenty of breakfast seating.

    We were passing through Amarillo and decided to stay here because I have a dog and they are pet friendly. The person at the desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was large and clean. The location is not the best, but our room on the first floor near the back was quiet. If you were outside it was noisy from the freeway. The price was good and everything was fine. It has a microwave and fridge in the room. The breakfast was better than most. If you have a disability you must stay on the first floor because no elevator. Our stay was pretty good. I'd stay again if I was coming back hi way 40.

    If you look at my other reviews you will find I am a big fan of hotwire. So after Hotwire booked my family and I here for two nights, I got a little worried about some of the reviews I read. I was really surprised when I first walked in to check in it was really updated and the front desk staff was super friendly. We got checked in and realized our room was on the second floor and there was not an elevator which is a little bit of a struggle with 3 kids but we managed :) The pool felt amazing and was super clean, our room was very clean and spacious as well. The breakfast had a great variety both days and was fresh and delicious. We highly recommend this hotel!

    This hotel was convenient for travelers, but not so conveniently located for dinner or any shopping. The hotel was clean and reasonably updated. They seem to cater more to truckers. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall it I would say it was above average value, and pet friendly.

    « Insulting »

    I am handicapped and requested a room on the ground floor when reserving a room as there was no elevator. Upon check in I was told our room was on the second floor. I asked Natasha (the employee checking in guests) that I unable to navigate steps, were there any rooms left on the ground floor. She said yes, but all rooms were preassigned and she would not flip rooms with another guest. I told here that I had requested a ground floor when I reserved. She said they do not make mistakes at that hotel. I asked if she was implying I was lying. Her response, "Yes mam, you are a liar." So after slowly navigating the steps to get to my room I could not leave the room until check out as the steps were too difficult. Insulted minimizes how I felt. The room also had been smoked in.

    « Fine for passing through Amarillo »

    We stayed here one night as part of a road trip, and it served our purposes just fine. We were looking for a hotel that accepted dogs, and this fit the bill. The room we stayed in (118) was heavily perfumed and the carpet was still wet when we arrived, but by morning the scent had dissipated and the dog smell was starting to creep in. Luckily we were leaving soon, but I did keep all of our bags and clothes off the floor because I knew what was under that perfume smell! Amarillo isn't much to look at, and arriving at night we were unsure what to expect from the surrounding area. It looked just a tad dodgy, so we unpacked our cargo rack and brought all of our many bags inside. (At check-in a woman was looking for her dad who may have stayed there the night before, and the details of their relationship was unclear. This was the first interaction I witnessed in Amarillo, which may have set the tone!) In the morning, my husband and I realized it was just an industrial area, but seemed plenty safe. There were mostly elderly people with dogs staying here, as well as families. Breakfast was fine. Plenty of choices for all types of eaters. Our room window was right by the back door where people were smoking, so that wasn't great for our son who has asthma. We couldn't open the windows, and the AC unit brought some of the bad air in. That was probably the only drawback to the layout of the hotel rooms. The rooms do have a fridge and microwave in case you need it. Our room had the sink outside of the bathroom, which was a little awkward but ok functionally. Bathrooms were very basic, again, just fine for what we were expecting. For the area, the price seems a tad high. We might stay again if we see a promotion the next time we are passing through.

    We were rolling through Amarillo as part of a mighty cross country road trip. We snapped up the Santa Fe (and we stayed in Santa Fe NM the night before) and were delighted by the modern clean rooms and futuristic lobby. The location and exterior belies the coolness within. The pool was just okay. The breakfast was super and I loved the regular Sunday paper. Nice stay.

    This was the second night of a 13 night vacation for us. The lobby is very 'glam' and quite contemporary...definitely NOT what you would think when you say 'Texas!" The room was great and comfy, really liked the bathroom decor. The grounds were very well kept and really clean! Would definitely stay here again!

    This BW is in a great location on the interstate for our purposes. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast choices were adequate and my granola and yogurt were great. Lobby and breakfast area was pretty small, but seemed to accommodate everybody. Our only complaint is being next to a pet friendly room with barking dogs. Very annoying. Would have liked to know that when checking in. Otherwise, a nice stay.

    The hotel was clean. The staff was o.k., but a little lackadaisical. The computer in the lobby didn't work, and the staff member was nice about it, but didn't fix the problem. The hotel is located on the far east side of town, which was not the best location for us. I didn't realize this when I booked it. It wasn't a bad location, just not as close to food, gas and Palo Duro Canyon as I would have liked.

    « Good Overnight Stay »

    I'll start with the most important thing. This is a very nice hotel, but it is two floors with no elevator. So, if you have issues with stairs, be sure to get a room on the first floor. When we arrived, we had been assigned a king room on the second floor. My husband has back issues and could not carry our bags up the stairs. The young woman at the check-in desk was very nice about it and, although there was not a king available on the first floor, she was able to change us to a double queen. The hotel looks to be fairly recently renovated and all was clean and comfy. There is a microwave in every room, although the website says "microwave available." We had no road noise from the highway. The air conditioner has an always on setting for the fan. I really like that. A nice breakfast--scrambled eggs, potatoes, gravy, biscuits, waffles, etc. Pretty standard. My one disappointment was the only grownup cereal available was raisin bran. Coffee was GOOD! That's not always the case in hotels. If I were passing through Amarillo again, I would definitely stay here!

    We stayed here twice on our trip--once on the way to and once on the way back. Clean and cheery. There is a fruit lemonade when you check in--and on the return trip they offered freshly baked cookies! Rooms are pleasant. The location is strange--not an area you want to take a walk in--but they cannot control that. Breakfast is decent.

    Do NOT stay at this hotel. Walking bare foot on the carpet left black dirt on the bottom of my feet. The room appeared to be well cared for and clean. However, the floors were filthy and it gave me the creeps when I wiped my feet clean and the wash cloth was black!!!!! There also was a very strong odor of air freshener when we entered, I guess to cover up the smell of the floor.

    Our room was fairly large, quiet, and clean for a pet friendly place. The A/C unit functioned well to help keep the room temperature at a comfortable level.

The internet connection was decent with a download speed of 13 and upload speed of 2. Breakfast was okay. The waffle batter was definitely watered down in comparison to the other hotel we stayed in.

    « Nice place to spend the night »

    This small two-story motel reminded us of motels of old along Route 66 except that it is quite modern and well-kept. We saw people quietly doing maintenance the entire time we were there. We have a feeling it may be a favorite place for Europeans exploring Route 66 as there was a very large group from Switzerland, some in a large van and some on motorcycles. Many of them enjoyed the outdoor pool as we read poolside. Our two-queen room was quite adequate for my husband and me and our eighteen-year-old granddaughter. It was nice to have the sink separate from the bathroom. The person manning the desk was quite helpful when we were concerned our air conditioning was not working. The surroundings of the motel consist of truck parking lots, and food was probably a bit of a drive. However, it has easy access on and off I-40. We had our own food and the room had a refrigerator and a microwave. The beds were comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised by this little motel.

    « Handicap-accessible OR pet - friendly but not both! »

    Reservation was made in advance via the Best Western 1-800 number for a room that is both mobility accessible and pet friendly, and the e-mail I received confirmed that. When we arrived about 8:00 PM after driving all day, the desk clerk told me that all the handicap accessible rooms are not pet friendly and all the pet friendly rooms are not handicap accessible. She had NO suggestions as to where else we might try, remarking before she turned away "you are welcome to take your business elsewhere." I blame both the reservation - taker for not knowing and not checking, and also the property management for allowing employees to feel no need to be helpful.

    We are Best Western Loyalty members so always seek out this hotel on road trips. The hotel is updated but there is no elevator to the second floor. It is also somewhat remote so necessary to drive to a restaurant for dinner. It was the priciest of all of the Best Westerns we had stayed out (10) during the past 12 months. Breakfast area is small and located next to the check in desk. The "World Famous" Big Texan Restaurant is a short drive and has a wonderful gift shop with Texan and Route 66 memorabilia/souvenirs.

    Easy access from freeway if the GPS directions had been correct! Even though we entered the correct address, GPS took us to the opposite side of the freeway. Check-in was quick and efficient and freshly baked cookies were offered. Our room was very clean and had plenty of room, including a sitting area with a sofa, to accommodate our large dog crate. The only negative was the small breakfast room which shared the reception area. We arrived a little late so there was room, but it was the smallest of all the hotels we stayed in during our 2 week road trip and would have had a seating problem if more than 5 or 6 rooms ate at the same time. The food, however, which included homemade biscuits and gravy was pretty good and the lady who prepared breakfast made a point to come out and ask if we enjoyed our meal. I would definitely stay here again.

    We are giving this place a 4 because of cleanliness and being fairly updated. But, our room had a pretty bad odor. Maybe it was because it was a pet friendly room, we were traveling with our dog. We were too tired to complain or change rooms. The lights in our bathroom went out around 6am when myhusband was in shower. Good thing he was pretty much done. One of their generators had quit. They had a full breakfast but scrambled eggs were rubbery. Honestly, we thought rate was a little high but it was comfortable and clean.

    We were moving cross country and didn't want to stray too far from the interstate we would use to continue our journey. However, I have been less than impressed with the hotels near a major highway as they always seem to trade convenience for quality. However, that was NOT the case here. The BW property is a bit away from the exit intersection in a more solitary location and very well taken care of. Obviously, it has been remodeled and is beautifully done. Very clean and bright. The parking lot was well lit, too. Breakfast was so great - in fact the best of our 4 day trip - it would not surprise me to learn that they used a full service stove (although my husband was not a fan of the gravy). My only pout is that there was no personal body lotion for me to use, so I had to dig out my own.

    We were driving from Chicago to Palm Desert with my wife and standard poodle. We had a wonderful experience with the BW in Springfield Mo. Whe we arrived at the front desk in Amarillo we were greeted by a young man who couldn't see for the hair in his face. Had to wait to check in. Asked him about dinner, he recommended a place who he said would pick us up in a limo. I said I would drive there. His directions were only five miles off. I think he was on the take from the restaurant. When we got in the room the mat in the tub was so terrible, dirty underneath. Totally unacceptable. We attempted to ring the front desk, but no one answered after four long tries. This is not the type of place I could recommend even to my worst enemy.

    With tax the total cost for a room here was $92 for two people when we came through on a drive back to Oklahoma from Colorado. The budget place across the interstate was packed and they referred us here. It was about double the price but was SOOO worth it for a very nice and relaxing evening after driving all day and prepping for another all-day drive the next day. Location was right off the interstate (40). Check-in was a breeze and "Hunter" at the reception desk was awesome. The layout was so modern and amazing. It just made you feel good being there. The room was equally amazing and had free wifi. We ordered takeout from a nearby chinese restaurant. The room had a large bathtub, fridge, microwave, bed, chair/ottoman, and desk/desk chair. The bed was SOOOO comfy. The only downfall were the neighbors in the adjoining room who talked very loudly late at night. A good set of earbuds and a 'sleep' playlist handled that. Pets are allowed but you couldn't tell - it was all so clean. The next morning we had complimentary breakfast and they had toast, bagels, hot chocolate, coffee, juices, milk, cereal, scrambled eggs, biscuits & gravy, sausage, and waffles in the shape of texas.

    Wonderful over night stay, we were traveling to Nashville home from Alb. lots of security cameras and nice rooms. The renovations have made a huge difference to this property. Even the check in guy was helpful as to who would deliver us food! They do need a fitness center though : /

    « Nice remodeled rooms »

    Clean! Comfy beds! Bathroom was small and needs some updating. But everything was very clean. Had our dog with us. So it is pet friendly! Would stay ago! Nothing special, no frills but great!! Breakfast was 6-9 slept in and missed that so can't say how that was.

    The room was large with a comfy bed, nice furniture and wall photos, clean and with good counter space. There are many channels on TV including movie channels. Breakfast was good with a fair amount of seating. You get good value for price paid. There can be noise if you end up with an adjoining room. Sound carries very well through those doors so you may want to use the fan/AC to drown out the noise as well as the noise coming from those who leave early in the morning. As a Best Western Platinum member, one of my benefits is that I'm supposed to get the best room available. An adjoining room would never be the best available unless you're with a group and request an adjoining room or they know the room next door will be empty that night.

    « great service provided »

    We had a great stay at this very clean hotel. Staff was excellent. It has a wonderful location and is near a lot of things. They also have free limo service connection that will take you to the famous Big texan steakhouse. We took advantage of the limo ride and the tip was all that was needed. Room were clean and breakfast was fine and convenient in the morning.

    Very satisfied with our stay. The entire facility was very clean. We had no problems what so ever. When we checked in we received a goody bag from the very friendly hostess. We found our room to nice and roomy. Plenty of electrical outlets for chargers etc. HVAC was quiet and worked great. We also liked the fact that the parking lot was well lit, since we were in a group of twelve motorcycles.

    « A nice place to say in Amarillo »

    This was a decent choice-better than some-we have stayed in Amarillo many times. Right off of Interstate 40 but the area was not the best. I selected this hotel primarily for the rewards promotion Best Western was offering during our recent road trip. It was clean and the staff was pleasant. The only real complaint was the toilet seat was broken. Rooms were decent and clean, breakfast was average. I thought the picture shown indicated a newer hotel which this was not. Good value for an overnight stay.

    « Average hotel »

    We arrived late at night having made reservations a few hours before arrival. For the price, we were surprised at how small the hotel was. It was located in a dark area off the interstate and not close to any restaurants. The room was recently updated and very clean, however the bathroom and hallways appeared to be dated. The complementary breakfast was very good (the best of our 6 night trip), and I especially liked the Texas shaped waffles and the nice lobby décor. All in all, this hotel is really trying.

    You will be very comfortable at this Best Western and if you're a pet lover, even better. Pet rooms are located close to rear entrance/exit which makes it much easier to take them in and out. Breakfast is quite good and I left there a happy customer.

    Clean and friendly. Newly updated. Quiet and convenient. Free Breakfast and Wifi. If u need to stay in Amarillo without frills... I recommend here. Good Best Western alot of daily travelers staying. Allowed pets. Sweet staff. I am not Best Western fan, as I have miles at Marriott...but I found it to be cleaner than some Marriott rooms.

    « Very contemporary rooms! »

    This hotel was great! The decor was awesome and the beds and linens were so comfortable! The complimentary breakfast was super the next morning. Only suggestion to travelers is don't book the second floor if you need an elevator because there is not one!

    Staff friendly and nice breakfast. Room not the best. Dressing area with sink in the room - not in the bathroom. Strange layout. The room didn't feel that clean and I didn't want to put my feet on the floor.

    This is a great value for the room - very nice, modern, clean but what makes the difference here is their staff. When we checked in we were given suggestions and directions for places to go to dinner. In the morning we were offered towels to wipe down our motorcycles. The people were friendly and thanked us repeatedly for staying at their hotel. Would definitely go back again.

    « Good room on I-40 »

    Traveling I-40 from California to Missouri is a long trip. You always need a good night's sleep on the journey. Our last night of the trip we chose the Best Western Santa Fe on the east side of Amarillo. The room was newly renovated, clean, spacious and comfortable. The a/c was blessedly quiet and the desk clerk was helpful in finding us a restaurant that would deliver food to our room. The evening was nice so I sat out by the pool for a while enjoying the breeze. We could not hear traffic from I-40 and so we slept well. The only downside is the lack of restaurants close by. However, breakfast was good (my dad was happy to see biscuits and gravy on offer) and plentiful. I can easily recommend this hotel.

    « Beautiful clean room »

    There are many cheaper options in Amarillo but looked pretty sketchy. Stay here it is worth the few extra dollars. Super clean rooms and the staff was great. The breakfast presentation was well planned and delicious.

    « Good traveling with dogs »

    Room very accommodating room. With two queen comfortable beds, plenty of space for two medium sized dog crates. There is a large field adjacent to Best Western property, perfect to run obedient dogs. Our Brittanys had a blast. The breakfast was better than most with omelets, meat, cereal, muffins, bagels, yogurt, juices, coffee, etc. Convenient to I 40. If traveling with pets ask for room 120. It's in the back but near two exits and it is in the quietest part of the property. We would come again if stopping in Amarillo. Only reason for dropping a star was that the outdoor pool was noisy being closer to road than desired and it needed to be cleaned. This is perhaps unavoidable as it is windy and dusty I'm Amarillo. Rooms and every space inside very clean. "Green" products provided in room as shampoo, soap, and hand lotions.
