Richard Talley, co-owner of the Motel Safari reached out to me to let me know the motel is up for sale:
“As we open for the 2017 season and approach our 10th year since purchasing the motel, we would like to be the first to let everyone know we will be offering the Motel Safari for sale this year at $300,000.00
Nothing else will change and the motel continue to operate as normal, we’re just ready to retire and pursue other adventures in life. We have a home in Tucumcari, where we will remain and continue to be involved in our local community, as well as all across Route 66.
If interested, please do not contact the motel or interrupt our daily operations. Instead, you may contact our broker, Richard Randals (NMREC# 16014) at New Mexico Property Group LLC. 575-461-4426 or email him at email@example.com
We would like to thank everyone for all their support, the Route 66 community and the town of Tucumcari. We love what we do and will continue to do so as usual, until an appropriate suitor is found. Until then, we look forward to seeing everyone on the road.”
Richard & Gail Talley
The motel has been highly ranked via TripAdvisor as one of the best motels in Tucumcari. With a national and international following and is recognized as one of the top visited motels on Route 66, there is a built in client base waiting to stop back at the Motel Safari for years to come.
This has been my home away from home each and every time I stay in Tucumcari (minus once where I stayed at the Route 66 Motel due to the Safari being sold out!) and I truly love this place. Known for the ‘best beds on the route’ and always a clean and orderly property.
To be honest, it will be sad not to see Rich and Gail at the front desk BUT this really is a golden opportunity for someone to get a great motel at a pretty good price. And with a built in worldwide client base, you will meet folks from all around the world!
