Having just moved on from the Lowes Coranado Bay resort this place was, to say the least, rather different and the cost of one night's accommodation was roughly equivalent to a round of drinks there. Staying in a concrete Wigwam is a throwback to the heyday of Route 66 and fantastically quirky. One of the highlights was chatting to Kumar... More

Although we didn't stay in this hotel, I put a detour on our trip just to drive a bit of Route 66 and see this place. It is iconic, and reminded even our teens of the Cars movie Cozy Cone Motel. That said, I'm glad we didn't book a night. We did not see inside the teepees, but we would... More

Old 1930s motel in the form of a series of concrete teepees. Well restored without losing original feel. Bathroom small but functional. Coffee and tea from the reception only. Go for the experience. On a main road so a bit of noise but sleep OK. Odd stepping out of teepee straight into the carpark.

I love how reviews here are calling this place dated, because honestly, we wouldn't have had this quirky little, wonderfully odd motel any other way. If you don't find the idea of a wagon wheel bed in a concrete wigwam appealing, you're just not going to like it - aside from the state of the furnishings! All in all though,... More

Dated but clean. Stopped here on way to Vegas. Indian woman hostess was very nice and helpful. Fresh coffee and granola bars in office. Lots of route 66 parafinalia. The water was not hot in the shower and was slow.

I just adore The Wigwam Motel and The Patel family. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable. Everyone is helpful and friendly. The location is excellent. I truly cannot say enough good things about this place. I just left there a week ago and have already booked my next stay.

This was our second stay here. It's a great quirky place. Clean, spacious & quite quiet considering the location. We arrived much later than scheduled due to traffic but had no trouble upon arrival. Highly recommended if doing Route 66 or just need a cheap place to stay.

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
