ALL Route 66 Roadies have this one on their list of places to stay. Tipis are very roomy & the staff are really hospitable. Clean pool & nice area to relax beside. You won't be disappointed. Stay here once & I can guarantee you'll wanna stay again.

By the look of it from the outside, we thought it would be small. Amazed to enter a very spacious room with a sofa, table, TV and fridge. Friendly owner and a clean bed. The only downfall was our very low shower head. Other than that our overall stay was a good experience. A fun place to stay down Route... More

This is an historic gem of a motel on famous Route 66 in Rialto, CA. The motel was created in 1949 by a man named Frank Redford. Unfortunately, I have not bad an opportunity to stay at the motel; I've only visited the property. But if you're taking the must-do excursion down Route 66, you must stop in here for... More

I was skeptical when my wife said she booked a tepee when we were planning our RT 66 trip, But I have to admit now that if you are doing the 66 things - you should do stay here for a night. Pluses - a cool old fashion motel concept; neat and tidy property w/ very cool concrete wigwams, old... More

Totally cool experience. My daughters dug it! Shower was awesome and the staff was friendly. It is on a major road in San Bernardino so the traffic noise is a bit load outside but not bothersome in the "rooms". Staff even gave us a couple suggestions for local eats.

Traveling with my daughter on a Rt 66 adventure. Of course we had to sleep in a wigwam! Turned out to be clean, spacious, comfortable and fun. Didn't get to meet the legendary owner but his daughter and son were great hosts. Very friendly and helpful. Arrived too late to go out to eat but they arranged for delivery from... More

We decided to stay in San Bernardino to get a late night head start on getting out of LA, but the Wigwam Motel is well worth a trip on its own. It’s so much fun to stay in a wigwam / tepee. The room was larger inside than expected, with a bar fridge & sofa, a cosy atmosphere and a... More

This is a fun place to stay. It is an old motel but nicely kept up. It was clean and comfortable. It was so much fun to sleep in our individual teepee. I am sure that kids would love it. There are a bunch of old cars parked around the property - very photogenic.

My family and I were travelling Route 66 over December/January so had to stay at the Wigwam Motel to get another part of the '66' experience. I am so glad we did! We had an absolute blast at this place. The accomodations were awesome (who wouldn't love to sleep in a teepee, but with all of the comforts of home),... More

An amazing piece of Amaricana! This was on my bucket list to stay here. They take Route 66 and the history seriously. We came here for the direct purpose of staying at the Wigwam. The only downfall and you can't really blame the Wigwam, is that the surrounding area is pretty drab.
