Other reviewers are correct, this is an Old hotel. If you look at their website you know that. It was built in 1953 and is part of the old historic route 66. We stayed for 3 nights during the Tulsa Home Show. Our rooms were spotlessly clean with crisp clean sheets and pillow cases on the firm mattresses. The owners... More

Not good enough even if at a low price. Saw three bugs in the room (so assume many more) and a fire alarm somewhere near our room that beeped every minute throughout the night. The room did not seem clean and fresh. I did not get a good night's sleep due to beeping alarm and the one bug a smacked... More

The Desert Hills Motel could use some freshening up. Not updating just a good old fashion deep cleaning. The beds were okay as far as motel beds go. The only real problem I had with the motel was the altercation the guests in the room next to us had in the parking lot at 3 a.m. They were yelling screaming... More

We drove Route 66 in August 2012 and were looking forward to our night in Tulsa. However, various people had warned us about this particular stretch of Route 66 and, as it turned out, rightly so. When we arrived at the Desert Hills Motel, we were absolutely petrified! A very suspicious looking 'guest' sat on the curb of the motel... More

I am wondering if I stayed in the same place all the other reviewers did. I did come on here before I booked as was Really worried about the room but still booked for some reason.

Did a road trip on Route 66 starting June 1. All Route 66 books mentioned this motel. It looks charming from the outside. Drive by and look at motel but DO NOT stay there. The rooms are the worst I have ever seen. We noticed that most of their customers came and went in a taxi !!! If you are... More
