If you’re going to Amarillo and you’re not staying with family, as is our case, you’re going to need a hotel. Fortunately there are several great Amarillo Texas hotels to choose from.
To our kids, a hotel with a pool is essential. Let’s face it, you’re going to get tired along the way and will want to relax at the hotel at times. Having a pool available keeps everybody happy.
It also helps to manage vacation costs if the hotel offers a fairly decent breakfast. That way, everybody is fed when you head out for the day and your first stop doesn’t always have to be a breakfast restaurant.
With that said, here are…
Our Favorite Amarillo Texas Hotels
The Ashmore Inn & Suites provides great value at an excellent price. They have all the standard amenities that one can expect from a decent hotel. This includes microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms, as well as free WiFi (wireless internet access). They also have a fitness center and an indoor pool.
If you’re planning to spend some time at Splash Amarillo water park, this hotel is a great choice because Splash Amarillo is only about 3 miles further east on I-40.
The Drury Inn & Suites Amarillo is another fine hotel in Amarillo. It also has all of the standard amenities of a good hotel, like microwaves, free WiFi, fitness center, and along with a pool, a hot tub.
It is located on the west side of Amarillo and fairly close to the Don Harrington Discovery Center and the Amarillo Botanical Gardens.
One of my favorite plusses of the Drury Inn is that there are a bunch of restaurants located all around it.
The Sleep Inn & Suites is fairly close to the Drury Inn, which means it is also close to the Discovery Center and Botanical Gardens.
The Sleep Inn’s rooms also have microwaves and refrigerators, and they have free WiFi available. They also have an indoor heated pool and a hot tub.
There are also some restaurants close to the Sleep Inn.
If you want a slightly more upscale hotel closer to downtown Amarillo, I think the Courtyard Amarillo Downtown is a good way to go. They offer an upscale experience at a great price!
Their rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and offer a great view of downtown Amarillo. High-speed internet access is available throughout the hotel. They also offer a hot breakfast.
The only potential issue is that the hotel does not have a pool, which could be a problem if you have kids traveling with you. Also keep in mind that this is a smoke-free hotel.
There are several restaurants across South Polk Street to choose from.
A nice centrally-located hotel with easy access to highways is the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Amarillo. This is a newer hotel, so everything is in great shape.
It has an indoor pool, a hot tub, and a fitness center. They offer a complimentary breakfast, but there are also several restaurants located around the hotel, should you prefer something else. The rooms also have refrigerators, microwaves, in-room safes, and WiFi.
This Holiday Inn is certainly one of my favorite Amarillo Texas hotels!
