If you want luxury accomodations, this is not the place. If you want a faux Route 66 expericence with modern accomodations, this is not the place. If you want the genuine thing, this is it. The Cactus Inn will transport you back in time to the heyday of Route 66.. It is a classic motor court style motel. You pull your car right in front of your room. The room was basic, but it was clean. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom showed its age, but it was clean. Peggy, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. She told me where I could go to get beer. The locality where the Cactus Inn is located is a dry "precinct."
On the sidewalk in front of the rooms are chairs where you can sit and see the old road of Route 66. I sat there and had a couple of beers before I went to dinner at the Red River Steakhouse.
The Red River Steakhouse is next door to the Cactus Inn. They will let you take beer or wine into the restaurant.
