My husband and I were making the first half of our much anticipated trip down the "Mother Road" and had decided ahead of time to stay in as many of the vintage '66 motels as possible. The Wagon Wheel was definitely on our list and we were not disappointed! Though we chose to save a few bucks and decided on one of the less expensive options (Room 18 in the back bldg), we still found it to be charming! The room was small as to be expected of motels of the era, but had a nice size shower, a table and chair, coat rack on the wall for hanging, the most comfy queen size bed and just enough Route '66 decor to remind you where you were. We met the owner, Connie, the next morning in the office/gift shop and found her to be very friendly and gracious, telling us a lot about how she was lovingly working to restore the property to it's former glory. We also had great fun riding around town looking at all the murals depicting the history of the town. And, if you're hungry for some lip-smacking BBQ, try Missouri Hick next door! All in all, it was a wonderful stay and we will definitely visit again if we're ever this way!
