OK let me start by saying that if you are not the adventurous, go with the flow kinda person ... just keep trucking. If you'd like to have some fun, stop and stay at the Wigwam Motel. We are travellers of Route 66. Not just the kind of people who have a plan to hurry from point A to point... More

This is a definite must stop on Route 66 or for any other reason. Wigwams are amazing, spacious and equipped with full size fridge and microwave. Step in shower was fast, hot and efficient and everything clean and nice. Plenty of sockets for charging all electronic gadgets. Gorgeous pool area with chairs and loungers. Kumar, the owner is friendly and... More

My knees are still quivering. I'm not even sure what happened tonight at the Wigwam Motel on Route 66. It was an utter disaster! The owner THREW US OUT, swearing at us in the street in a rage, threatened to call the cops, and to cap it off, kept our $88. All in less than 30 minutes time. NEVER in... More

Nothing special about this place, really. It's on a major boulevard with nothing around. The room is simple like a motel and with the exception of the exterior looking fun, the room is very basic. I would not recommend going out of way to stay here. The price is good anyhow, staff is very friendly, and it was surprisingly very... More

I absolutely adored staying here. The teepee was simple, but it had everything you could need. The rooms were nice and clean, and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. It was absolutely worth staying there. It's gorgeous and in a good location to the rest of the town. It's right along route 66 and really did make the experience.

A fun experience on Route 66, but as others have said odd staff and bad location. Overall my families experience was ok. When I arrived to check in, I was greeted by what I presume was a stoned front desk worker. Working our way through an odd check-in I was told they did not have our 2 Queen bed wigwam... More

We booked the Wigwam motel in advance from the UK and found the booking system very simple. The motel itself looks amazing from the outside and it is well worth a visit just to take pictures of the wigwams. The rooms themselves are basic which is to be expected but I personally felt they looked a bit shabby. We'd stayed... More

I have stayed at The Wigwam multiple times now and it is still my favorite place to stay in Southern CA. The rooms are clean and cozy. Kumar and family, makes the stay memorable. The interactions with other guests is fun. And I am dreaming of my next visit here.

The Motel is a unique experience one worth taking up. I think it's only one of three worldwide available and if your doing Route 66 it's great for part of this. However I have rated this only as a 3 just down to the area this is in. We went to the shop across the road and encountered some interesting... More

We were lucky enough to just rock up and get a room for the night. The lady on check-in was very helpful even allowing us to view the room before deciding. The rooms are a good size and comfortably slept 2 adults and 2 kids. The bed was comfortable and we were back from the road so didn't hear any... More
