This motel is very moderately priced, has fantastic owners and wonderful old 66 relics abound around the yard. The room was very clean. My husband had a great time wandering around the relics. Would definitely stay here again as a part of our Route 66 experience.

Stayed here on our 66 trip. The first thing I did when we checked in was flush the toilet. It started backing up. Management moved us to a different room and the maintenance man had to pull the toilet from the room. Apparently the night before children were flushing things down the toilet and jammed it. I liked the place...

What a quirky little place this is its battered and bruised and has seen better days but that's part of its charm I personally loved it. The place was built in 1922 by American standards that's really old. There is a fridge and microwave but no tea or coffee maker. The lady who runs this place is so friendly and...

The outside of this little motel is fab, with old cars and signs that give it an authentic Route 66 feel. The price was reasonable, the room was clean, and the staff very helpful and friendly. However, the downsides were that the room was tired and dated, and lacked a hairdryer.

The exterior is really charming in that old-fashion route-66 style, funky old cars in the lot and some quaint landscaping. The staff is friendly and tries to be helpful. Sadly, the interior was really dingy, from the threadbare towels to the smelly carpet, it's really hard to be comfortable. The curtains aren't nearly enough to darken the room but the...

Very friendly owner. Rooms are small and a very loud, but great choice of channels on the flat screen. The area is a bit run down, I wouldn't walk around there at night but the motel has plenty of security cameras.

I had the pleasure of staying here for a couple of nights. I met the owner who was super sweet, friendly and loves dogs! I booked this spot because it is pet friendly. My room had a king size round bed. For some reason I was excited about that. The room was clean and comfy. It had a microwave and...

I give this hotel a 4 today, not because of anything wrong at the hotel. The corporate offices have decided to take two things I expect to see out of the rooms. 1 hair dryers and 2 shampoo. These are small things but they definitely affect my choice of hotel. I will probably look at other options within the same...

Stayed one night in this small motel, and found it clean yet spartan in amenities. No in-room coffeemaker and a loud fan on the heater were the only downside. Hey, for about $50. + tax, this is a great bargain--and a little trip down memory lane! Friendly manager can recommend local restaurants, etc.
