We were surprised at the size of the room inside the tepee. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The manager was extremely helpful and nothing was a problem for him. Staying in a wigwam is something everyone doing Route 66 must do and tick off the bucket list

When we started planning our Chicago to Los Angeles Route 66 trip the California Wigwam Hotel was the one place we knew we wanted to stay. While making our reservation the owner gave us recommendations of places to stay along the way. Those recommendations turned our vacation into the trip of lifetime. Not only does Kumar have a great place... More

We (Mom, Dad, 13 yr old) stayed for a night while on a road trip from Northern Alberta. Kumar is a great host. He was very personable and seemed to really enjoy getting to know the guests. The night we stayed (July 3), he got a campfire going for the guests, complete with smores and fireworks. Our wigwam was clean,... More

Been wanting to stay here for years and finally was able to find a vacant teepee on a Thursday. I've been taken back to my childhood and the road trips we took across the U.S., staying in roadside motor inns! The manager, Kumar, is a Route 66 "junkie." Ask him about his trips. Wigwams/Teepees are small, but very clean and... More

We travelled Route 66 last April-May with another couple. The previous day before arriving in the LA area we booked two rooms online. We arrived in the late afternoon and could hangout in the garden and at the pool - although it is along a busy road, we could relax and you are not bothered by the traffic. We were... More

I am a female and I travel alone. I am planning my fourth stay in two years here. That being said, I have felt safer here then at a Hyatt. The rooms are cleaner too. I love what the Patel Family has done to keep the spirit of Rt.66 alive. This place is really amazing. Every time I stay here,... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice and have loved both stays. Comfortable rooms, nice beds, fast Wi-Fi and the owners are wonderful. I enjoy being in a place where the owners are friendly and willing to actually talk to guests, not just quickly send them off to their room like you'd find in a boring chain motel. As... More

Having grown up in San Bernardino in the 50's & 60's it's great to see what Kumar has done to the place. It's nice to stay there occasionally to appreciate the "Old Road" feel. We have even had a few reunion events there which even included a stage and live music. All went off without a hitch. Thanks Kumar for... More

What a brilliant way to spend a night! In a Wigwam....all mod cons and fabulously furnished, you wouldn't believe you were sleeping in a concrete wigwam! I found this place in my Route 66 book and was very pleased we decided to stay there. Friendly staff even set up the firepit in the evening so all the guests could roast... More
