I agree completely with what everyone else has said about this atmospheric stop-over - (smallish but clean rooms, slightly faded at the edges etc.). It was our second night on a road-trip around northern AZ (from the UK) and was one of the highlights. The reception was very friendly and welcoming.
Waking up at dawn and taking photos of the vintage cars around the car-park on a cool, bright Arizona morning while the adjacent section of Route 66 slowly came alive and the super-long freight trains rattled by in the background was a great experience.

Stopped here on my way to Petrified Forest NP. A little run down but maintained. Smallest bathrooms I ever saw but that is because of the shape of the room, like a traffic cone. Old cars in the parking lot added a bit of interest, too. This isn't for someone that needs to eat in the same places when they travel.

The WigWam Motel built in the late 40's to early 50's have been kept up nicely but does not have the most spacious room on the route, but one must remember they were not built for comfort but necessity back in the day. Obviously they were built in the shape of a Tee Pee to help draw attention and are very unique. Yes, if you are tall you will have to bend down some to shower as the shower head is set more for someone 5ft 7" someone over 6" like myself to see in the mirror as the mirror is attached to the wall at the angle of the Tee Pee you will have to bend down a little. Other then that, the Tee Pee's are a neat, clean, quiet and cool place to stay. Kids will for sure love to stay here. I have reserved 3 Tee Pee's at one time for my family during our trip out West. Anytime I get into Holbrook, AZ. I stay at the WigWam Motel. For you movie folks and fans of Lou Diamond Phillips, Tee Pee #12 was used in the movie "Dark Wind" with Lou Diamond Phillips. The office was also used and can be seen in the movie.
It is true they have no cafe on the grounds, but there are a few in town that are worth the visit. They also do not have Internet or phones in the Tee Pee's which is not a problem unless you are the spoiled one that needs these ammenities. I for one can get by one or two days without having to get email or talking on a phone. They do have TV's and AC basic accomodations and very inviting on the hot summer days in AZ. Your kids will be talking about this stay for a very long time. A stay here makes nice memory's for years to come and I recommend you experence a night in a WigWam

Room Tip: Any room is good. They all look the same so it really don't matter what one you stay in, unless you want to stay in the room that was used in "Dark Wind" and visited by Lou Diamond Phillips. Yes, Lou was sitting inside #12 WigWam.

Yes, it is kitschy. But it is irresistible and it is fun (and cleaner and bigger than you would think, too). Loved the old cars and trucks strewn around the parking lot. If you have half a sense of humor, or you have kids, stay here!

This place is a hoot! There were lots of Europeans staying here to catch a flavor of old Route 66, which it has in spades. It is clean, cheap and had reasonably comfortable beds - no room service, holistic spas or restaurants at this place. I did wake during the night when freight cars went by on the railroad tracks nearby, but no one else in my family heard them. It was a small price to pay for all the fun we had staying here. Talk about kitchy!

We loved the old cars and as for staying in a Wigwam, that speaks for itself. There's a great place for breakfast just down the road called Joe and Aggies Cafe, even the waitresses were characters. www.joeandaggiescafe.com
