A Cozy Motel With a Retro-Inspired Ambiance

About Lila Doughty, Owner of Palomino Motel


"Welcome, and thank you for visiting this website. I am Lila Doughty, the owner of Palomino Motel. Spending the night at an unfamiliar place can make anyone feel rather uncomfortable. That’s normal. That’s why as your host, I want you to feel at ease at our place. 

Let me start by telling you my story. I moved to New Mexico from the East Coast 15 years ago. I used to clean rooms at Palomino Hotel and in the process, was exposed to a lot of nice guests. I have been working for the hotel for 2 years under its General Manager, Warren Fischer.

Because Warren is a businessman who does a lot of traveling, I’ll probably be the one who’ll greet you at the reception area. So, see you in Tucumcari anytime soon? Feel free to chat with me if you have any concerns or inquiries about the motel or the area. I’ll be more than happy to assist you with your needs."

Mission Statement

We want to provide a cozy, comfortable home-away-from-home accommodation with a retro-inspired ambiance that will bring our guests back to the ‘50s.
