I've stayed here before but I just can't say enough about this place and the husband and wife who own it. Bob and Ramona Lehman, owners for more than 40 years, have kept this place in excellent condition over the years, making it a place to keep coming back to. If I wanted a new, fancy motel with all of... More

The Munger Moss Motel has been a pin in the map for Route 66 travelers since 1946. For the last 45 years, it's been run by the same couple and their love of Mother Road history is evident throughout the motel. The grand neon sign is indicative of the experience here; it harkens back to road trips of old where... More

Clean, comfortable, quiet, accommodating. It's a shame the surrounding area is a little run down, but i found the owners, locals and other guests (most of whom are travelling the route 66) to be incredibly friendly and helpful. Oh, and a fantastic neon sign!! Please donate to keep it maintained!

This is a fairly budget type of accommodation. The general décor of the place is oldie worldie, however, the rooms, whilst not very modern, had everything that one needed. They were clean which is a bonus. Good for price.

Such a cool retro motel...had crushed velvet lampshade and mint-green tub and sink. Felt very safe, and perfect respite for a good night's sleep. no microwave or fridge and few channels...but fantastic price and loved all the photos of route 66 motels on the wall. Will definitely stay again!

I have stayed at the Munger Moss on many occasions and will return as often as I can. I have always found it to be clean, comfortable, and quiet. The rooms are tastefully decorated with Route 66 Themes and photographs. Bob and Ramona Lehman have owned and operated this motel since the early 70's and you will not find 2... More

On our Route 66 Trip we just HAD to spend a night in the Munger Moss Motel. After a warm welcome and a big hug from Ramona we went into our rooms. Very clean, simple, just what you would expect from such a place in which every inch tells a story about the motherroad. As long as the owners are... More

We spent a night at the legendary Munger Moss, with its terrific sign, on our Mother Road trip. Ramona & Bob were the loveliest people and gave us and our travelling teddybear gang a warm welcome. The room was fabulous, full of wonderful old photos of Chain of Rocks Bridge and suchlike. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and the a/c... More

This place is so lovely. The check-in office is full of memorabilia and history and Ramona will tell you about it all and she's such a joy to talk to. I wish I could just live in this motel permanently. The rooms are charming and clean and the perfect combination of vintage and comfort. I HAVE to go back in... More
