Great owners, great place! We were looking for some place different and we found it at the El Trovatore Motel. The owners are great people who take pride in their hotel and want to make sure your stay is the best. They provided us with a lot of information about the area and places to see and places to eat

Wonderful place to stay .Sam and Monica were so friendly and helpful. I loved the character of the place from the funky murals to the older style accomodation. We found the room clean and the bed really comfortable. It is an experience to stay here and a must stay on your route 66 adventure. I would definitely stay again.

Well, where do we start. We have travelled Route 66 twice now, and am sorry we missed this place first time round. We arrived late one evening and were welcomed wholeheartedly to this wonderful establishment with information and maps and detailed history of Kingman and surrounding areas. Taco was present throughout and our son built up a great rapport with... More

My wife & I booked this hotel based on reviews and pictures. Upon our arrival, Sam, the owner spent at least 30 minutes giving us a narrative of the history of the hotel, Kingman & surrounding area, including an alternate route when we left town by traveling through Oatman, (don't miss it). He also gave us maps with areas of... More

Exterior classic Route 66 and local history information by the owner was detailed. The door frame on the room was splintered, as if it had been kicked hard at some time. The "Elvis theme" was 3 pictures on the wall (stayed in a "Hawaiian" room in Seligman and it was done properly): pretty disappointing and shabby. The shower room was... More

This motel was very cheap, but looked like a classic Route 66 motel and we were not sure what to expect when we booked it. When we arrived, Sam the owner spent some time describing the history of the hotel and the town. We were charmed. The hotel itself is very old, but the rooms (we stayed in the James... More

The price is right, but there are definite negatives. We stayed in the Audrey Hepburn room and the main objection was that the carpet is dirty and stained. The bathtub faucet is broken, tho the shape the tub is in, it would not be inviting anyway. The bed sagged in the middle.

Prior reviews are generally accurate. There are cool neon signs. There are theme rooms, or at least rooms with movie posters. And the exterior has a large, interesting painted map of Route 66. Nonetheless, even at the relatively low rate of approximately $50 per night, this hotel is only an average value. Don't swoon over a kitschy exterior, unless that... More

Not at all modern, but glad we stayed here one night. Sam and staff are very knowledgeable about the area. They told good stories about Clark Gable's wedding here in Kingman, and also Eva Marie Saint, and Pamela Anderson. Room is small. Bathroom lacks counter space. Shower is very good. Sam's dog does tricks. Wish I could park in front... More

We didn't know what to expect when we first booked the El Trovatore Motel. It sounded fun, and Sam, the owner and the person we met at the front desk, was full of information and was very nice. All the employees we met were very nice. A bit about the motel itself...if you're a huge Route 66 fan, this is... More
