The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, and the attached giftshop was a nice treat after forgetting some Rt66 stuff in Barstow the night before.

The rooms (wigwams) are classic icons and as such don't offer much in the way of modernity. They are smallish. They have limited power outlets (bring a power strip) and seem to amplify sound. That said, they are super cozy and are fun to stay in (this is my 3rd stay at a wigwam, 2 in holbrook, once here).

The wifi is tolerable, if not slow, but it's steady at least.

Room Tip: Get your kicks here!

I grew up about one hour from here and as a kid I was fascinated with this place. Recently I came home for my 40th HS reunion and decided to stay here a night. We have also been to the one in Arizona.

We were very impressed with the obvious care that the current owners have for the Wig Wam. They said that they purchased it about 15 years ago, (I know it was in rough shape then) and have been working on it. It looks great. All of the teepees are renovated and have a nice mix of new and old. Nice large TVs, good AC/Heat, USB plugs, comfortable love seat, comfortable bed. The bathroom has the original tile which we love. The shower does not have a light, ( like many 1950 showers did not have) which didn't bother me but did my husband. The landscaping is well maintain and there is the cutest and smallest classic swimming pool that I have ever seen.

Each teepee has a designated parking space feet away. So convenient!

My only suggestion was that lights by the bed would be nice so that one can see if one needs to get up during the night without waking up everyone with the one bright light in the room.

If you have kids who are fans of the movie Cars this is a must see.

My husband & I recently had the pleasure of spending just one night at the wonderful WigWam Motel on our Route 66 Road Trip. The owners are friendly, warm and have a super clean facility. We were extremely pleased with their recommendation to have dinner at historic Mitla’s Cafe, just about an 7 minute drive away. I highly recommend staying here, but don’t bring the children because there really is only space for 2 adults inside the teepees.

Stayed here with my husband and another couple,we had a wigwam per couple. The check in was quick and friendly the girl on the desk was polite and helpful and helped us with finding somewhere to eat that night,we had just landed in LA after a 11 hour flight and were tired so this was appreciated. The rooms are a good size with big comfy bed, couch TV and bathroom it also has an aircon unit on the wall. Furniture is dated but well maintained and fits with the feel of the hotel. We spent the morning by the pool which was also clean and well maintained. I loved this place and would recommend and would stay again!

We were completing our long planned Rt.66 journey and staying at a Wigwam Motel was on our want to-do list. There are only two of the original six left and we were told this was the better of the two. Thanks to the Father and son who refurbished this part of Rt. 66 history. Our room was larger than expected and comfortable for our one night stay with AC, a nice couch, large TV, and queen size bed. Also nice and clean. We are thankful that it was saved from being torn down so we could complete our wish list on getting our "Kicks on Route 66"!
