If you want all the amenities of the high end hotels this is not the place for you. But if you want a clean room with pleasant surroundings and a good nights sleep this is the spot. Good bed linens in a small room pleasantly decorated. We were in the Marilyn Monroe room that had a unique headboard. We were... More

My husband and I stayed in a Queen room one night on our short Route 66 trip. Loved the room even though it is small. Very clean and linens are top notch. Hope to stay longer next time so we can visit Connie's shop and more sites in Cuba, MO.

After experiencing some health issues that will hopefully be resolved by late summer, we felt compelled to cancel our trip on Route 66 next fall at the urging of my doctor. All of the motels at which we had reservations cheerfully issued cancellations and quickly refunded our deposits. All, that is, except one. The new owners of the once grand... More

I am sincerely sorry you will be having health problems in Sept. Our cancellation policy of a minimal $25 is clearly stated and checked when making a reservation. It would not be fair to the other people who have to cancel reservations for what ever reasons and never even mention it. We are a small motel with limited rooms of... More

The Wagon Wheel is a fantastic little hotel to stay at when you’re visiting Cuba. It is right next door to Missouri Hick BBQ (excellent place) and there are a few bars close by. I really enjoyed this place, and so did my wife. She loved that the hotel is so historic. The bathrooms were nice, the bed was good,... More

I booked a room and was charged for 2 nights instead of the one we wanted. You need to book through email which is not secure and seems ridiculous in this day. Although the town is cute and bbq restaurant next door is fantastic. Find a hotel in this town but don't stay here. The rooms are small and the... More

After sending a message asking for information about a double charge accusation and getting no response, I have come to the conclusion this review is not a review by a customer. We use secure online booking through our website with a place to agree to our cancellation policy if that could have been the problem. Waiting 5 months to write... More

The books on Route 66 recommend this motor court as the best place on the highway and they were absolutely correct. The nostalgia in this place is unbelievable. The owner is a lot of fun to talk with. The folks we met have stayed here countless times, reliving a time that was slower and more interesting. And the towels are... More

While doing Route 66 we planned on just chancing our luck on motels as we went. This is a lovely place with good facilities however as we were on a budget it was a lot more expensive than we wanted to spend. We had absolutely no problem with the motel at all. It was very clean and the staff were... More

A pleasant and clean room with a history to die for. The owner was friendly, informative and clearly passionate about what she does. Not a great deal to do in the area but the Big Rocker is a must. The infamous neon was superb.

Our stays at the Wagon Wheel are always a pleasant, comfortable experience. First of all the entire property has been completely renovated and there always seems to be Route 66 travelers either stopping by for a visit or staying for a night or two. Second of all is the huge deck and patio area that Connie Echols, the owner, has... More

Cuba is a small town, so it's a great place to go if you're wanting to get away. The Wagon Wheel is unique and vintage, but has been updated. It's not as authentic-feeling as some other vintage places we have been, but, the updates are nice and there are still a few vintage treats like the "magic fingers" bed that... More
