Place has local long term tenants with drug issues. Rooms are not clean, Bar &Grill is closed, as is Diner and pool is not opened. Not that any of that really matters. We had problems with a lady strung out on drugs roaming the place from the time we checked in. Wouldn't ya know our room was right beside them. Police were called around 9:30pm but not for them rather for a group of young ladies dressed like prostitutes' causing a ruckus. Was awaken just before 4 am by our neighbors arguing then a big door slam. Turns out the lady who left the room was roaming the hotel knocking on guest doors. I got up, went to front desk, talked to the young man at front desk who was outside. Vented with him, he was nice, but caught in the middle,. We stayed here back in 2013, place was nice, its a total joke now. You DO NOT want to stay here, Listen folks IT WOULD HAVE TO IMPROVE TO BE TERRIBLE.

This place is not only filthy, but is laughable as well. We checked in and were given another guest’s room. The room was nasty, so they offered us another room, which was cleaner but smelled worse. We were then offered a third “jacuzzi” room that was humid and damp and stunk as well. They finally offered us one of their “marketing” rooms, you know, the ones they take pictures of for promotional purposes... I had read this was the first Holiday Inn on Route 66. I was sure that was true after I saw the pillows that looked to be that old as well. Unbelievably stained yellow. As were the sheets and towels. Rooms were not clean, had stuff left in them from previous guests, etc. The most laughable part was when the vacuum cleaner kicked on outside our room at 1:30am. I called the front desk and he asked what the problem was, I said “the vacuum cleaner outside our room.” He said he’d never heard of any silent vacuum cleaners! I said “I’ve never heard of hotels where the staff vacuums at 1 o’clock in the morning” and hung up. He proceeded to call back four times and all I got when I picked up was a dial tone. We were traveling across the country on Route 66, staying in all kinds of old, quaint, nostalgic, kitschy motels. I’m sad to say that this is not quaint, nostalgic or kitschy...just old...and stinky, and filthy, and uncared for. The housekeeping staff knows nothing about hospitality or cleanliness. The HR folks know nothing about recruiting and hiring quality individuals as employees. During our trip I commented how sad it was to see all the boarded up motels simply becoming dust before our very eyes. I must say, I would not be sad to see this establishment added to that list. Route 66 would be better off without it.

Staff charged 10.00dollard for a replacement key to my room and if u didn't have the money it was just a tough luck for me. Never ever serviced my room. Was told I need to wash my own sheets towels ect. Bluetooth speaker missing from my room. Threatened by the staff of physical bodily harm after repdily asking for owners information to report . Ganged up in by 3+ hotel employees and treated horribly as I watched my friend almost die due to a medical emergency as staff scoffed laughed and made fun of as he lay there almost dying. Tried to keep my belongings after they took my key away and I had to tend to this medical emergency by locking me out of the building. Just horrible. Staff appearance unkept just dirty towels sheets with burn holes filthy bathtub just horrible all the way around in shock still can't believe it. Roll the camera back if you don't believe me. It's all there on tape. Moldy bathrooms . Owner needs to clean house. Front desk always empty. Always empty.

This hotel was horrible in every way. The rooms are internal to the hotel with the corridor along the outside wall. One can wonder if the hall was once open to the parking lot and later walled in. Thus, the room was very dark. The entire wall to the corridor was window but we had to close the shades for privacy. The room SMELLED. It actually REAKED but we could not identify the smell. It was not cigarette smoke. With COVID and anything else that may have been living in the internal air conditioner, we were afraid to turn it on. In the middle of the night it was obvious that someone was smoking in the "smoke free" corridor. The furniture was broken and the lights over the bed were ripped out. On top of that, NO ONE in the hotel was wearing a mask for COVID mitigation. HORRIBLE hotel.

We stayed here as we were passing through headed west on Route 66. Our Mustang Club has a great time, the staff was absolutely fantastic, and actually the only complaint I can say is the air conditioning in the room was HORRIBLE. It really didn’t get good and cooled off. Thank goodness I brought a fan! There is a lot of Route 66 and transportation memorabilia to look at and it’s not a bad stop. Especially if you are like us and refuse to stay or eat at chain hotels or restaurants on Route 66!
