My son and I drove Route 66 and voted Boots Court one of our favorite places to stay! The care that has gone into the restoration of this wonderful place is amazing. Each piece of furniture and fixture has been selected with TLC. We will definitely be back!!

I was attending a banquet with a 40s theme in Carthage and my husband suggested we make it a "full 40s night" and stay at the Boots. It was an awesome idea, and a lovely experience! The back portion of the property has been restored to it's 1940s glory. It was just what we needed! We have a 3 year... More

My wife Jody, Grandson Gavin & I had a fun nights stay at The Boots on Dec 12/20/2014 on our Route 66 vacation. A throw-back to the old days, very authentic. We didn't even miss the TV. This is a Perfect motel to stay at while on a Route 66 trip. You will feel like you traveled back in time... More

The owners are renovating the place as they go. But this is an awesome place from the past. When you go in to your room, they have the radio playing an old time station. The room is clean and has a fantastic vibe. Wood floors fit in so well. Everything was just fantastic. This is the type of place I... More

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

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
