Motel on Stretch of Highway 54
Posted Jan 1, 2017
We travel Highway 54 to visit relatives a couple of times a year, not many large cities on this stretch. This is not a motel we usually stay at, but weather forced a change in our plans.
We arrived around midnight. We were given a room with keys; keys didn't work; went back to desk and were told there had a be a change in room - just the kind of introduction to make life more difficult when you're tired at midnight.
We travel with two dogs. Motel filled out deposit slip for each pet - guest only charged extra if there is damage.
Cold winter night stay. Room heater was fine. Dalhart is a railroad town. I leave heater on low fan for white noise and heard no trains all night. Beds were great. Pillows OK.
Kind of eerily quiet and still at midnight; my daughter called this a "ghost motel."
Bathroom shower is dated. I am average height (5'10"), and the shower head was at my chin-level; had to duck to use it effectively. I am still limber, so was OK.
I stay at motels that have full breakfast for family and me and am willing to pay for this. This motel breakfast was very limited and lacking for the price. Not many options. Disappointing.
There's a big range of Super 8's - some run down, some fantastic. Must say this one was OK, but not worth the price. Would recommend staying in Guymon, OK, a bit further down the road - several good motels worth the price there.
You'll get a good night's sleep here, but I am not planning to stay here again.
