Let me start off by saying the beds, pillows and towels were so soft and comfortable. The room had the right amount of nostalgia and modern items. There was a replica of an old radio but it also had a CD player built in. The pillows and bed were so wonderful. When we first arrived the room had a musty smell to it but went away when we decreased the temperature on the air conditioner. We would certainly stay here again. The price was right on and it was our best nights sleep. The area around the old motels are round down but that seems true with most of the historic Route 66 towns we drove through. It's sad. I'm glad the owner made the place feel co comfortable. The motel is off of interstate 40.
