Tucumcari, New Mexico, at night.

This little shop has jewelry and all sorts of other little trinkets, even pretty rocks and agates from other areas.

This little motel seems to be the nicest of the vintage ones.  And they have "refrigerated air"!
 Basic, historic and restful and they have wifi!   
 This is not far from a truck stop and right off one of the interstate exits.  They probably have good food.

This is one of the basic motels - and they have phones, probably not a big draw anymore!
I've enjoyed this town, it was probably well visited back a few decades ago.  There are so many abandoned, derelict buildings and businesses that it's a little depressing.  But the people are friendly, helpful and care deeply about their town.  And I believe they actually value their visitors, unlike lots of places.
