Had a very comfortable and hospitable stay at the Wigwam this week. Kumar, the manager, is a young guy with an obvious love for the Wigwam motel and for Route 66. It was really fun discussing the various people and places we shared in common--it's obvious that Kumar knows them quite well! So, to the next generation that will keep... More

My son LOVES this place. It is roomy, the staff is friendly and every time we drive by he asks if he can stay there again. He always calls it the Cozy Cone Motel just like the one in "Cars"/

Just got home from our stay at the Wigwam Motel in Rialto and let me just say it was a blast. It's great to see that a wonderful piece of our history is being restored and we can have the fun of experiencing it. Kumar, the manager, was the perfect host, sitting at the pool and discussing his travel plans... More

When planning my "Bucket List" trip of Americas Mother Road, the historic US Route 66, I became intrigued with the Wigwam Motel & decided to spend the last night on "The Road" at this historic landmark.

After the glitz and glamour of 3 nights in Las Vegas we looked around on the Internet and prebooked the Wigwam Motel enroute to Hollywood. Worth noting that it was tricky to find, as the street numbers didn't seem to match the hotel reservation sheet. Nevertheless, found it eventually.
