Right on Historic Route 66. We stayed one night on the way to California. Staff was very nice and informative. The room was very roomy considering it was built in the 50's. A small, but very nice old tiled shower. Even had a rotary phone that worked. The bed was a little squishy and the sheets were thin but the towels were think and hefty. We stayed there with our 7-pound dachsund also. Each room has a garage which have murals painted on the walls. They are small garages so motorcycles and very small compact cars are the only thing that would fit. We were traveling by motorcycle and it rained that night so the garage was a big plus!
