Look! It’s the Shalimar! The newest, hippest, grooviest place to stay, eat, and see and be seen in Gallup. Well, at least in the ‘60’s. Hey, man, they even have a helicopter!
When we went through in 2008 and 2009, it appeared that the motel office was in the process of being demolished. But, it looks like they were simply remodeling:
It has been MUCH altered, but it still lists itself as The Shalimar on the sign. Odd, though, the sign advertises “Lounge and Dancing” but makes no mention of the motel, although the units still stand at the rear of the property.
