Today was exit day from New Mexico, headed for Lubbock tonight, then on to Fort Worth tomorrow. We saw some interesting sights. Major gift shop at Cline Corners, NM (for those of you who driven I-95 in South Carolina, think South of the Border, only much smaller) for some Route 66 memorabilia. Then, got off I-40 in …
... ahead of us. We set off on a solid day of driving under blue Texan skies. The roads today were great as they were 1 and 2 lane highways through country Texas, with very minimal traffic compared to what we have been used to so far. Not really too much to say other than it was a nice scenic drive in the sun through rural Texas. Hopefully we'll be in Santa Fe by nightfall ...
... front came through and within a few hours, the temperature dropped at least 25 degrees. It is currently 45 (it's now 7:30) and there is a freeze/frost warning out for tonight. Guess we should leave a faucet dripping tonight! Now remember the second winery? Well, their function was going to be outside in a tent. Not sure if they are having it or not since the temp plunged! Who knows maybe they will have lots of propane heaters scattered ...
... ask one of the service people about adjusting the wiper and they confirmed we were doing it correctly. So for now we will just leave it alone.
Now it was time to do some sight-seeing. We were going to start at Buddy Holly Center, but came across the American Wind Power Center first. This is an interesting place. They have about 50-75 different windmills displayed on the grounds, but in their building, they have 100 different style ...
... could pull off and investigate, we discovered that possibly the screw holding the wiper in place may be loose. We'll have to check it out tomorrow. Also, there was a rattle coming from somewhere around the screen door, the driver's side window sounded like it was popping out, discovered a blast of cold air coming from between the refrigerator and buffet, let's see what else? Oh, the bathroom door is crooked and ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsArbor Inn And Suites Lubbock
We had high hopes for this place - it looked great on the internet. The front desk person and the manager were very helpful - I had screwed up the date, so they worked it out. A large suite, clean, but probably needs a "sprucing up" to compete with the chain suite hotels surrounding it. The internet was awful. Very slow, and the desk said "nothing wrong with hers". Not bad, but nothing special either.

Historical Traveler Reviews Arbor Inn And Suites Lubbock
After reading all the positive reviews of Arbor Inn and Suites, my husband and I decided to stay there, since we were in town for a funeral.
Home Away From Home
Our All Star Baseball Team (El Paso) and their families stayed at the Arbor Inn & Suites. We enjoyed the spacious rooms which were extremely clean and well decorated. The pool is gorgeous and was so much fun for the boys and their parents. The staff was courteous and helpful going above and beyond. A nice breakfast too. It is the best hotel for the price in Lubbock bar none.
Exceptional Value and Staff
The best hotel I've stayed in of last 30 hotels visited. A terrific value. Make reservations early as this is a popular hotel. Room was very large and comfortable. On the evening we stayed, staff put on nice cook-out meal. Free beer and wine from 5-7 pm. Outstanding to relax by gorgeously landscaped pool. The only knock I have are the super turbo compression toilets - a bit like a small water cannon going off. Would recommend top floor to avoid flushing noise below.
The Arbor Inn & Suites met all of our criteria for a great hotel experience . The Arbor was very clean and quiet with very large rooms, good breakfast, helpful staff.
I have now discovered a wonderful place to stay while conducting business in Lubbock. I have found that the Arbor Inn & Suites is above average in cleanliness, amenities, convenience in location, roominess, quietness, aesthetics, and personalism. I travel to Lubbock 2 to 3 times a month and the Arbor Inn meets & surpasses all my business and personal needs. This is a great place for families too, with a beautiful outside pool area. The breakfast choice is limited but who cares with everything else this hotel & manager/owner has to offer.
I am setting in the living room of our suite writing this review as we speak using the free highspeed internet that is available wirelessly throughout the hotel. The property is brand new and the rooms are impeccable. Very nicely furnished, Thomasville furniture with brushed nickle fixtures, wrought iron lamp stands, granite counter tops, two 25"-27" TVs with DVD players, large shower, tile floors, free highspeed internet (wireless and hard wire LAN connection), and an independent digital thermostat for the room. The suite has a full kitchen with fullsized refrigerator, microwave, range, etc. The hotel has a conference room and a workout room.
Great place to stay while in Lubbock
Stayed four nights while in Lubbock. The room was a standard room but very nice. (2) beds, refrigerator, micro-wave, high speed internet, wondeful bath area. Very clean, new hotel ----- great service. They have a washer and dryer on each floor for guest use. It was wonderful (much above average) and I highly recommend it.
Loved it in Lubbock
We stayed a week in Oct '05 at this fantastic new suites hotel in SW Lubbock. We found the owner and each of his staff to be very friendly and accomodating. We had a one bedroom suite, which was very roomy and nicely appointed with DVD players, granite counters and Bath and Body Works soaps & shampoos. Our balcony had a lovely view of the beautifully landscaped pool area. The breakfast offered cream cheese and yogurt for those that need protein, but we hardboiled eggs in our room too. They serve Texas shaped belgian waffles, yummy. The business center offered high speed access when our antiquated computer didn't work in our room. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. Great place to stay. Everything is done top notch.
Wonderful kid friendly hotel
Brand new hotel. Easily the nicest "suite hotel" I have ever seen. The room had a king bed in a separate room with a huge bathroom. The living area had a fold out couch and a bar sitting area around the kitchen (nice eating area for the kids). The kitchen had a full size fridge, dishwasher, small range, and large microwave. Bathroom and kitchen had granite countertops, and each room had a large tv with its own DVD player. Free laundry facilities down the hall. The outdoor pool has a graduated entry (from zero depth to about three feet) and several fountains and water falls. My kids loved it -- very family friendly.
We stayed at the Arbor Inn and Suites on 2 separate occasions in June of 2005. Although current construction in this area of Lubbock makes access difficult, it won't be long before this problem is resolved. The rooms with 2 queen beds are very large with closet, frig, microwave, TV in cabinet, vanity area outside the bathroom, desk and couch with pull out sofa. Our family of four slept very comfortably thanks to central a/c controlled with an electronic thermostat. The pool was nice but the hot tub was cold, likely due to several small children going from pool to hot tub and back frequently. The continental breakfast was filled with coffee, juices, bagels, muffins, bread for toasting, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit and waffles. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The only problem we encountered was an elevator that was quite slow, even to the point of giving the feeling that it might not open or reach the desired floor. Overall our stay was very enjoyable and we plan to stay there again in the future.
