Beautifully restored proper little motel.dont bother staying anywhere else in KINGMEN !!!!!! The owner is very proud of where he lives and will give you a little history lesson and will let you know where to eat drink and be merry!! Unfortunately we could only stay 1 night and didn't get to enjoy fully this beautiful place.

We booked this after reading various reviews on trip advisor both good and not so good so thought we would take a chance. It was an experience, we only stayed one night, didn't fancy another one there. The room was clean, no coffee/tea maker only microwave !! Fridge worked ok too. It was cold in Kingman and unfortunately the heater... More

Shower was dark only light came in around the door a 4 year old could kick it in. Was to stay for 2 nights but left for a better motel for second night. The Elvis pictures were the best part. We asked for railing in shower but they gave that one away before we got there.

Easy to book room online! Sam stayed up and waited for us and treated us to a great history lesson and maps for the whole area ! Stayed in the Paul Newman room- no Hot Water in the shower but hey after 10pm it wasn't a big deal-sink had hot water- I know Sam is working hard on improvements !... More

We stayed in the Elvis Presley room and it fun. The room was clean, decorated with Elvis pictures and a really nice place to stay. The guy at the des was very nice and helpful about the rooms and things to do in town. He has a really cute dog named Taco that we petted. Interesting and historic place to... More

We needs a clean bed for the night & that's exactly what we got with a little bit more thrown in. Didn't expect this to be a theme hotel when I booked it an hour before turning up. I arrived s little apprehensively into the neon lights & vivid paintings. However I was put at ease straight away by the... More

One of our many excellent and unique lodgings on our trip. The place, as well as the owners, are full of character. Wonderful stories and history shared while checking in. Great room with vintage bathrooms. only down side was very limited hot water. If you want cookie cutter stay at a Ramada, if you want uniquely cool stay here!

The owners have done a great job updating this motel. The rooms are 1950's, so don't expect a modern hotel experience. The murals and neon are fun. But the front office could do with a de-clutter. The manager seems to give the history of Kingman whether you want it or not. Some folks just want to just veg out after... More

Please ignore any of those less than perfect reviews- I just took a cross country road trip, and our stay at this hotel was our favorite part of Route 66, without question! If you are looking for a classic hotel to stay in, skip the Wigwam and come straight here! I think some of these reviewers expected to be staying... More

I had always stayed at another motel in Kingman but I decided to give the El Trovatore a try. Sam and Monica Frisher have done wonders with the place since reopening it a few years ago. It still has a ways to go but it is certainly a work in progress. The rooms are not big but they are comfortable.... More
