It's not as if we weren't up for a little fun. Some kitsch, a little adventure. We wouldn't have chosen this place if we didn't get that it wasn't going to be a typical motel. We did not however expect that cold desert wind blowing through the half inch space showing between the door and the door jamb, and we... More

This is not your typical 21st century motel accommodation. From the moment you drive in you know this is going to be a bit special. Firstly, the welcome from Sam and Monica and Taco the dog includes a detailed and interesting history of the motel and the town. If you want a quick, anonymous check in you're in the wrong... More

My wife and I stayed here while on a Route 66 road trip. We had such an amazing experience! Everything, was just how we would expect it in the golden days. Upon arrival the amazing neon sign draw you in. Sam greeted us and was very welcoming. He is was super nice and spent 20 minutes giving us some background... More

This is a hard place to review. By purely objective standards this motel would rate much lower. If I base my review on more intangibles I rate it much higher. It is an old historical hotel that the current owners are restoring. It is a work in progress but I have to admire and support their vision. The room itself... More

This place was great! The owners were very enthusiastic and spent a good hour telling me about the history of Route 66 and Kingman, AZ. They gave me some great recommendations for places to eat and places to visit. The neon sign was awesome and the grounds were really cool. I liked the long Route 66 mural painted on the... More

Sam couldn't immediately locate our reservation, but when I showed him our printed copy that was all he needed He was also an amazing source of local information Our Marilyn Monroe room was all we needed for 1 night, although the shower does look a lot older than the rest of the room We love...

We were given a interesting and informative history-lesson of Kingman by the friendly man in the reception. He showed us to the room and told us about the building. The room was nice and clean and we had nothing to complain about, except the lack of hot water in the shower.

The reviews bad-mouthing this classic hotel you need to take with a grain of salt. The hotel was built in 1937 and Sam and his wife have been rebuilding the place for the past 3 years, saving it from a court steps auction. Sam is an extrovert and wants everyone to be educated on the history of the motel and... More

Sam & Monica have created an eye-poppin', colorful place that draws you in. Sam is extremely knowledgeable about cool things Kingman. The rooms, however basic, are large & clean. They could easily charge much more but, SHhhh!!! Don't mention it to 'em. ;)
