From the outside, it looks like a newly remodeled place. We just needed a place to stay while traveling through so just wanted something nice but cheap. Every thing was good until we went into the bathroom. It was gross. I wouldn't take a shower in there. I would not stay here again.

I have stayed here before and have enjoyed every visit. The Guest House Motel is on route 66, which is cool, and the price is great. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. I will stay here again.

A regular smallish route 66 motel. If you want more go to a chain motel and pay more. Once the door was shut it was quiet. It was on the dirty side, but I always bring my cleansing towels and clean everything from handles to pictures. Within walking distance of everything you might want to do. Only shower worked. If...

This traditional motel is on Route 66 close to the center of Carthage town. Within walking distance of the pubs, diners and coffee shops which cluster around the historic main square. Very reasonably priced and basic, comfortable room.
