This was my second stay at the Historic Route 66 Motel. I love the atmosphere; not only the retro feel of the motel, but the hospitality of the owners, too.
This time, we grabbed some smoothies to go (yum), from the coffee house on the property. I took advantage of their on-site computer to verify route details and check the weather forecast. I had a lovely chat with the owner and I was on my way. I will always choose this hotel when I travel. No frills, but a locally owned, well-cared for property.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Historic Route 66 Motel is a mid-century modern hotel that is similar in style and atmosphere to hotels and homes designed by Mies van der Rohe, Joseph Eichler, and Oscar Niemeyer. Built in 1963, both the exterior and interior is more than a little reminiscent of "California Modern", a style that was so popular until the latter sixties. Our mission is to provide clean, private, and comfortable overnight accommodations for guests at an extremely reasonable rate. Refrigerators and microwaves are available in select rooms. The Motel also includes a popular European Style Espresso Bar on the west wing where guests receive a 10% discount on all items and an exterior corridor, where guests can park directly, or nearly directly, in front of their rooms. The Historic Route 66 Motel is operated by a professional staff directly managed by the owners. ... more less
