This is a good motel to visit for a night. The staff were really friendly and the themed rooms added a nice fun touch which made this motel stand out from other options. We stayed in the John Wayne room which was clean but the bathroom especially was a bit dated. We booked online and took the option to include... More

We only stayed here one night and wish it were longer. This is an original Route 66 motel which saw many movie stars staying in it. The owners are great fun and clearly love the place. Many of the rooms are themed and we stayed in the Marilyn Munroe room. Our room had a refrigerator, microwave, widescreen TV, excellent wifi... More

This is a decent hotel to stay at for a night or two. The owners are really sweet and do all they can to maintain the property. You can tell that they love it. The hotel rooms are themed for movie stars. The rooms are small with some funky furnishings and bathrooms.

We stayed here for one night after Easter 2014. We had two rooms. What made us choose this place was the good ratings and it was cheap. The location was good. Not too far off from the highway. We arrived late, but I had called ahead and left a message that we would be arriving later. The check in process... More

After staying here for 5 days I felt inclined to say that it is people w oh make your vacation. Hotel owner of El Trovatore Sammy is one of these people. A very special bloke, he takes great pains at your arrival to explain all the history of Kingman, AZ, to go through the locale and identify the best features... More

Very good place to stay while travelling Route 66 from Oatman through to Flagstaff. Sam, the owner of the motel is friendly and helpful. Motel is older but fixed up to be part of the 66 experience! Theme rooms and painted Route 66 road on the outside wall is a added touch.

Great place to stay with great helpful owners. Rooms are clean and well presented. Loved that the rooms were themed and the fact that the rooms were beautifully done up but had not lost the history of the place. Highly recommended.

We did a Classic Car Trip on Route 66 and we stayed at the El Trovatore Motel. We had 7 couples and we all had a comfortable and fun experience at the El Trovatore Motel. Sam and Monica were great and took care of all of our needs and the rooms were theme rooms and nicely decorated with comfortable beds... More

Recently we went on a road trip with my family to the Grand Canyon and we wanted to include some of old Route 66 in the trip. We decided to stay at the El Trovatore in Kingman. It's a very cool and historic motel, and that may be the tallest neon motel sign anywhere! Cool stuff! Anyway, the owners were... More
