We got asked that question a lot when we would mention Lubbock as one of our stops. The answer to that question is: one of the nicest families you could hope to meet in one of the cutest, and vaguely creepy neighborhoods I've even been in. We drove from Saginaw and headed west across the flat lands of west Texas. I love our dear friends and family in Texas, I don't particularly love ...
Yesterday we took a trip to Taos. The change around Espanola and Velarde is incredible, it is amazing what the introduction of Casinos does to an area. Taos still has it's pretty square and a nice quilt shop, and Paul found a book shop. Today we did a long drive to Roswell and visited the Alien museum, then another long drive to Lubbock. Two very straight boring roads, and due to high winds we were driving into a sand storm most of the ...
4100 miles so far.
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 Santa Rosa, NM to see a bit of Route 66. Then, off ...

We woke up this morning at 10am, after a nice night out in Austin. We've decided to make straight for Santa Fe in New Mexico. So we plugged the city into Victoria who informed us we had 11 plus hours ...
Just four short days ago we were gathered among the daily throngs to watch the Changing of the Guard at the gate and fencing that surrounds Buckingham Palace. London has been experiencing a much hotter than normal summer. This day's high 80s, while much cooler than our Texas heat, made an hour+ wait feel a little long. We were 3-4 rows back ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsResidence Inn Lubbock
Hotel was aged but nicely refurbished on the interior. All staff were friendly - we made multiple phone calls for service yet staff showed little irritation. Room was clean. During my stay I had problems with the thermostat so we spent the first night freezing as the maintenance staff were not working late. Free hot breakfast is a plus. Slightly noisy at night particularily since our room was on the highway side. My kids loved the sports court but the two basketballs given to us to use were both 1/4 flat.
I used my points so the stay was free. If I had to pay I would have choosen another hotel.
Hotel was conveniently located next to the science museum and a Target. It was only a couple of miles from Texas Tech Univ and South Plains mile.
