A lot of fun, CLEAN and friendly with hospitality I rarely see. Rooms are small but comfortable The owner let us use a spare room with no charge to rehearse! Fun delicious BBQ restaurant (Missouri Hick) right next door too ! I recommend for the off the beaten path adventurer

A beautiful motel with some old world charm but modern and well-renovated at the same time. The Wagon Wheel was probably our best overnight stop between Chicago and LA. Cuba is also a great little R66 town to stop in and walk around.

Lovely motel, original as they come. Comfortable beds and linen. Sat in the garden to eat our breakfast which was lovely. Supermarket 5 minutes round the corner. Only downside is proper kitchen but nothing at all supplied, I.e, no cutlery, no plates, no crockery, wish we'd looked in drawers and cupboards before buying dinner and breakfast at supermarket. Never the... More

One of the original rte 66 motels. It has been fixed up and has all the amenities of a modern motel, it does lack a pool that would have been nice. There is a restaurant next door that serves bar-b-q that's' all right. Stay for one night or take your picture in front. It has a great gift shop rte... More

My stay in a single room was pleasant. The Rte.66 origin is highlighted (sticking original door and unopenable windows) with modern amenities, including well-appointed bathroom. Care and pride of ownership clearly present. I'd recommend it for anyone wishing to experience something akin to a bygone era away from the chains.

This was our second night's stop on a tour down Route66 and it was a real find - a bit different and really comfortable. It had separate buildings dotted about the property like lodges that each had a couple of 'motel' rooms and although they were not huge they were so comfortable and spotless. Some of the rooms are bigger... More

This was one of four historic places we stayed. The owners have done an excellent job maintaining the historic nature of the property with updated bathrooms. Great place to stay! Convenient to walk to see Cuba murals and the Missouri Hick Bar B Q. Had problem with AC - owner checked it out quickly. Then was cooling, but made quite... More

This was one of the most authentic places I have ever stayed. I was so surprised at the cleanliness and service for the low price, right off Route 66 and next door to the famous Missouri Hick BBQ. This is a must stay if you are passing though and worth the drive out of the way. My boyfriend and I... More

Our first overnight stay after starting our Route 66 trip, we arrived late so we did not get to check in with anyone. However the rooms are cute and very clean! We loved our suite with a jetted tub it was great to relax in after our drive. and the vibrating bed was a hoot! :) Very nostalgic perfect for... More
