RVucan2 would stay here again

“Loudest WAL-MART stay ever.”

Reviewed Oct 10, 2017

Overall Rating

Between the wind and train whistles which seemed blow at least once an hour, it was a pretty sleepless night. I usually sleep well at Wal-Marts...not so here. But I was safe and was not hassled, and I am one who really appreciates Wal-Mart for their RV policy.

“24/7 Service”

Overall Rating

Gallup is a town that doesn't have much to recommend it. It's a crossroads community that draws retail customers from a large area but also seems to have a notable number of pan-handlers on street corners and in service stations.

Walmart is conveniently located in the northwest quadrant of the I-40 freeway and the 491 (north) and 602 (south) highways. If you want fast food, there is a Carl's Jr, an Applebee's, and a Cracker Barrel (that didn't appear to have room for RVs) within a couple blocks. Most RVs park along the southern edge of the parking north near the frontage road. Semi's seem to congregate on the west side of the lot. Security made the rounds of the parking lot several times during the night.

Plan to be sweetly serenaded by the sounds of the frontage road, freeway traffic, and train hours. It was the next morning that I realized this Walmart is open 24/7 - I could have refilled my supply of earplugs the night before and slept better. Oh, well.

If you have pets, watch for the goatheads in the grass (at least during the summer) between the frontage road and the parking lot.

I hadn't expected to do a review so I didn't pay much attention to signal strength. Both Verizon and AT&T were decent 4G.

The plan was to be on the road by 8:30 - a plan that we beat by 45 minutes. We hadn't gone 200 yards when BJ asked why she was getting wi-fi on her phone. Don't know - I turned it off and stowed the...
