Great place to rest your head on route 66. Room was huge with one queen bed. Very clean. Bed was hard, but some people might prefer that. Owners are extremely nice. Definitely would stay again. Price is very reasonable.

This is our third stay at the Munger Moss! It is like coming home! The rooms are comfortable and clean. The decor is the perfect mix of homey comfort and our beloved Route 66! Our hosts Bob and Ramona are wonderful people. They have great advice about the area and know the history very well! It's the only place we... More

If you are a Route 66 enthusiast you must stop here. The first thing you see is the fabulous neon sign. The office has lots of memorabilia and souvenirs for sale. Ramona is wonderful! She is great with suggestions and directions and loves to talk about the area. The office area has a smoky smell but our non-smoking room was... More

The Munger Moss Motel was one of the things I got right on my Rt. 66 trip last spring, so I decided to stay with them again this year. This year I had a friend riding along, and changing from a single bed room to a two bed room was no problem, even at a late date. Clean, quiet and... More

Approaching the motel you are greeted by an iconic neon sign , real Route 66. Checked in at the front desk by the owner Ramona, who was very helpful with directions for local dining options, Route 66 stories & tips. A great chat. Room was a good size & is decked out in 50s/60s decor but doesn't feel dated. Room... More

This hotel dates back to the heyday of Route 66 with the classic sign out the front saying it all!!! Ramona (along with Bob the owners for 45 years) told me that other than a couple replacement baths the rooms are as close to original as they can be. You can see the place is loved and well cared for... More

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
