When I was a kid in the sixties, I took "road trip" vacations. I have very fond memories of the places we stayed, and stopping at all of the Souvenir Shops along the way. This hotel brought back some of those memories, but from a practical standpoint, I wouldn't stay here again, and here's why. 1. The heating unit in... More

I've stayed at Kingman many times on my way from NM-CA. This is my first time here and won't be my last. The owners are so friendly and the dog is so much fun. Sam is so knowledgeable about the area and you can tell he is proud of it too. The hotel stood vacant for a long time and... More

Hospitality, great value, dynamic owners, and Taco that does tricks. Sam and Monica are two of the most gracious motel owners anywhere with Sam's knowledge of the area he will give you the history of the town, show you the best sites in the area, and recommend some great home town cooking in Kingman. Plus the best local shopping spots.... More

Have some fun, drive past the big chains and stay here. The owners dog - cannot remember his name - made the kids laugh when he hunts for his treats. The owners - friendly, chatty. The location and the motel - I can only guess, but I assume it's what you would find on route 66 all those years ago.... More

Love this place, Sam gave us a great run down on the towns history, we spent the afternoon exploring, found the Palace Saloon bar and new years even was accounted for, El Trovatore is has been carefully restored to its route 66 glory days, great value for money and great job Sam and Taco.

El Trovatore is a funky fun old motor court. Charming. Owners are very friendly and helpful. On a quiet stretch between the Route 66 Museum and Dambar & Steak House both of which we visited based on Sam & Monica's recommendations. Would definitely stay again.

Beautifully renovated, yet they kept historic charm. Owners Sam and Monica are a wealth of history for the area and the hotel. Room was beautifully updated and I love the historic bathroom. Monica even puts your tv on an historic movie channel so you get the full experience! Thank you Sam and Monica for keeping history alive!!!

Stayed 4 nights. Like going back in time only a big tv and fridge and microwave have travelled with you. If you want friendly personal treatment, then look no further. Sam and his beautiful wife treat you like family, the motel is in a very good location away from noise and close to a good stake house/bar and a very... More

This place is a gem! The accommodations, which give you a little taste of history, were great but you get so much more... The owners went out of their way to welcome us and provide an incredible wealth of information about the area's history, local attractions, people to know about, best restaurant options, best travel routes....and more. They have done... More
