I'm taking a road trip this summer and want to spend a night in Amarillo.  Can you
recommend any good hotels?

Many people come to Amarillo just pass through.  Because of this, there is every hotel chain you
can imagine in Amarillo, so you have a great chance of staying with a familiar name.  The
Amarillo Motel is another option, if you don't want to go with a chain.  It's a very nice family
owned business.
