This place is adorable! They are restoring it to a 1940s motor court and doing a wonderful job! Each room is different. I was able to choose between two rooms and both were extremely clean and neat. Keep in mind however that it is a motor court and also trying to remain period friendly, so no gadgets in your room.... More

Thank you so much for alerting us to the noisy furnaces. They are the originals, installed in the 1940s, as far as we can tell, so they can take considerable maintenance to keep them running. We will alert our maintenance contractor and see what he can do to reduce the "clanging" noise. Otherwise, we hope you enjoyed your stay, and... More

If you want to see real-live preservation in action, this is a place you should visit and stay at. The Boots Court has undergone an arduous, thorough and loving restoration (6 room in total at this writing). The rooms are period correct for the late 1940s. This is no mere "fresh-coat-of-paint" restoration- this is the real deal. Period-correct furniture, re-finished... More

OH Sean! I can't tell you how much I loved your review! It almost brought tears to my eyes! Real historic restoration is not easy, and explaining it to today's modern guest can be challenging. It is so heartwarming to be able to read that our guests DO appreciate all that is going into this project and that they applaud... More

This is truly a Route 66 gem. The fact that the rooms are as close to the times speaks to the history of Boots Court...beautiful chenille bedspreads, original vanities, old radios playing the oldies, absolutely stunning hardwood floors and perfectly spotless. Since we were the first guests to arrive, we were able to choose our room! Who could turn down... More

We loved staying at Boots Court, vintage is what we love and we were not disappointed! It was clean clean and Debbie was so helpful and thoughtful. I can't wait to come back and stay there again, perhaps next time I will get a Clark Gable room!

Thank you so much for your kind words! We are always glad when a guest mentions how clean we keep our rooms because we feel that nothing will destroy a guests pleasure faster than a lack of cleanliness. No matter what else you do, that is what they will remember. We hope to see you again soon. You could become... More

Rooms were very clean and pretty. The motel manager, Debbie, was very friendly and accommodating. She gave us great historical information about Boots Court and Carthage. Great stay and fun experiencing a slice of classic Route 66 Americana!

If you're travelling along Route 66 you just must stay over night here. The owners have restored it back to it's glory days. When we arrived the room was lit up by the lamps beside the beds, the radio was tuned in to radio channel that played jazz from the 40's and Rock n' Roll from the 50's. The rooms... More

We are always very pleased when our guests take the time to let other travelers know they have enjoyed themselves at our 'Auto Court". We are always concerned that people will not understand the missing TVs and microwaves - but they always do! And its nice to know they were missing but not missed! We hope to see you again... More

We stayed in room 12 last night at this wonderful streamline moderne beauty. The gals here are working hard to return this historic motor court to it's original beauty. The room was just like stepping back into the 1940's with many original furnishings. Room was very clean. Walked into the room and music from the time period was playing though... More

Don't let the outside appearance fool you like we almost did. This is a classic Route 66 motel and a must stay for anyone riding the "Mother Road". The Manager, Debby, was very well informed on the history of the "Boots" and was eager to tell us all about it. We stayed in #10 where Clark Gable slept after WWII.... More

Doing Route 66 we were told to stay at 'the Boots'. Looking at it from the road were thought 'no way', but we went and spoke to the owner, Deb, she showed us around and told us of this history of the place and it was one of the highlights of our trip. It's a brilliant motel, the rooms were... More
