Passed the Wigwam many many times over the last 10 years but never had the time to stay there until June.
Having stayed in lots of Route 66 mom & pop motels my expectations were not that high, but I was shocked at the condition of the bathroom it was really dirty the grout in the tile was disgusting and looked like it has never been cleaned, also the towels were discoloured and threadbare, my husband got an electric shock when he switched the batroom light on !!!
The owners are only on site for a limited time each day so if you have a problem it's hard to get it addressed. ( a sign in the window tells you to call 911 in an emergency yet there is no phone )
The AC was so loud it was unusable,
While we were there lots of folk drove through and just took photo's I wish we had done that instead of staying there,
Beacause Its such an iconic part of Route 66 I feel the owners are taking advantage of the fact that road travellers will stay there but beleve me there is no way I would stay there again, nor will I book it for my group for next years Route 66 trip. I am sure there will be cleaner options and yes I will continue to support Mom & Pop motelsMore
