After seeing area attractions like Cadillac Ranch and the Palo Duro Canyon, families can hang out by the indoor pool no matter the weather.

The Country Inn is located on the western edge of Amarillo, along a quiet stretch of Highway 40 as it leaves town. There are several restaurants and a multi-screen movie theater within walking distance. The hotel is also a brief drive from the Westgate Mall, where you’ll find more casual and fast food eateries. Downtown Amarillo, with its array of trendy shops, galleries, and restaurants, is 10 minutes away by car. For a unique Texas dinner experience, drive across town to the Big Texan Steakhouse and make an attempt at their 72-ounce steak challenge. There are plenty of fun family attractions in town, including the Amarillo Zoo, the Don Harrington Discovery Center, and the Wonderland Amusement Park. Drive 3 miles west of your hotel to gawk at Cadillac Ranch, a strange and wonderful art installation, then head 30 miles southeast of town to hike the scenic trails of the stunning Palo Duro Canyon. With its large suites, beautiful indoor pool, and convenient location, the Country Inn & Suites is a great place to stay during your family vacation to Amarillo.

Of the hotels we stayed at on our re end trip it was number #1.
The room was very comfortable and bathroom was roomy bathroom.
Bathroom sink counter had plenty of room for my toiletries on one side and my wife’s on other.
Breakfast was quite good. The scrambled eggs at so many hotels are terrible. These were quite good. Sausage and waffles. Fruit, cereal etc also available. Nicely done.
We will stay there again. We felt there was good value and definitely comfortable accommodations.
Easy access on and off I-40.
Great stay! All the staff was great from check in to check out! They were professional but very friendly and helpful!!
We really enjoyed the swimming pool and breakfast was really good.
We also liked the high ceilings which gave the room a really open and airy feeling.
