    This is one of the gems, if not the crown jewel, of Route 66! Although pictures of the place lit up at night are nice, they don't do justice to the beauty of driving into the motel and seeing the neon sign lit up. The...More

    Can't remember, but I know the price range was $69-129. I think we paid less than $100. Well worth it-too cute.
