My wife and I stayed here on a trip back from Arizona. Quaint, old fashioned motel on the old Route 66. The owners, Kevin and Nancy Mueller, are great people and gave us a good recommendation for dinner at Del's restaurant. The rooms are small as is the bathroom but it is just fun to stay at a place with so much history. Our bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. We stayed over on a night when the temperature was dropping like a rock and Kevin came over to our room to ask us if we were warm enough. They have a nice web site that shows all their rooms so you can pick which one you like (they are all decorated differently). Give them a try next time you are passing through. P.S. If you pay by cash or traveler's check, you will save about $8 on your total bill!
