The neighborhood surrounding this unique motor court is iffy, but the property is okay. The unique accommodations do show a few signs of wear and cosmetic disrepair, but the place was tidy. The property itself is not the issue here, however. We choose to support family-owned, independent businesses because the proprietors' hospitality often creates a far more satisfying total experience.... More

I'm actually a little late leaving this review as we stayed here in January 15. We stayed here whilst travelling route 66 with my 3 month old baby girl and found the staff very friendly and helpful. The obvious reason for staying here is that it's a cool wigwam! If you're looking for a luxurious motel this isn't it! to... More

Our stay was quiet and comfortable. Our wigwam was newly furnished and spotless. I think of the San Bernardino Wigwam Motel is a beautiful green oasis, complete with lovely swimming pool. We even received great tips on local restaurants and nightlife.

Yes they are a concrete wigwam but it is perfect. Super clean, great bed and sofa with a big TV. It is on Rt 66 which is pretty busy but ask for a wigwam towards the back. No problem with road noise. There aren't many places like this left. Owners very friendly and helpful with info about area. For GPS... More

Saw this online and thought it would be worth seeing and staying here as part of our trip. Other than staying in a concrete wigwam (which is pretty cool!) there was nothing else that made this place stand out and we felt a bit uncomfortable in the area.

What can I say... I wanted to stay in a wigwam for the past 40+ years. I'm from So Cal, but live out of the country now. The Wigwam Hotel was great and deserves the highest rating not because it's luxurious, but because it's classic! Kumar greeted us with open arms. He's welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable of the area.... More

What a fun place! The wigwams are much larger than you'd think. Very comfortable beds and newer TVs. There's a pool, small but super clean. The gift shop is full of Route 66 souvenirs, kitschy and fun! The roads inside the property are large enough for a bobtail semi and the parking spaces are too. But the BEST part of... More

We had booked this before our trip in June on route to our next destination and specifically for the experience of staying in a Wigwam. Having spoken to someone a few days before our stay who had warned us that San Bernadino was not good and not to go out after dark, we were a little nervous. The area the... More
