We were en route to a family visit out west and couldn't stomach another soul-destroying corporate chain motel. Munger Moss is as unchained as can be. Our room was a relic of 1957, complete with turquoise and salmon bathroom tile, everything clean, quiet, and comfortable. Don't be put off by the smoke reek in the office- the room was fine"

A motel with a iconic Route 66 neon sign recently renovated. You come here for the experience not the luxury facilities. Decor is 1960s. I found our room smoky and it stayed in my clothes for several days. Rooms are clean and tidy although cigarette burns are evident on the carpets. Interesting old ten pin bowling alley across the road.

This is my second stay at this lovely little motel. I called to make reservation, told Mrs. Ramona I would be coming in very late (after midnight). Even though they are not a 24 hour office, she made arrangements for me to get in my room. The rooms are cozy and clean, the Motel itself is a time capsule for... More

Rode by the Munger Moss in 2007 while doing a Route 66 motorcycle ride. I stopped and took a couple pictures then headed on down the road. A couple weeks ago I was meeting a group in Buffalo, MO to go for a ride. I decided to roll out a day early and make my way to Lebanon. The lobby... More

Ramona the owner is fabulous and it was her birthday. Good clean room and really nice. So welcoming and well worth a stop. Small motel with all the 66 stuff around the walls and in the reception. Close to the town of Lebanon everyone is friendly.

The Motel is located just 5 minutes from the Interstate but jut far enough not to be bothered by the traffic noise. Our room was clean but basic with decent Wifi. No fridge or microwave but two upholstered chairs that rock. The mattress was on the soft side. No breakfast but coffee is available in the office. What sets this... More

We were really happy to get a room at this iconic hotel not having booked ahead. Given a 'newer' 1960's room we were delighted with the decor which bought back some memorised fro childhood. We also felt privilege that Ramona had stayed later to greet us and ensure that we were comfortable and informed for our stay as she wouldn't... More

My family and I were on a cross-country Route 66 road trip and had to spend the night at the famous Munger Moss Motel to make our experience complete. Of all of the mom and pop motels I've stayed at (and I've been to a bunch of them), this one was the most well cared for of them all. We... More

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
