The owners are super friendly and genuinely nice- they care.
The place was built in the '50's and reminds me of any number of old Miami Beach joints. Art Deco/ Empire/ Modern maintained nicely. The room I stayed in was pretty authentic with just the right amount of turquoise Naugahyde, cheesy varnished piñon pine and horribly gaudy lampshades your favorite aunt Goldie used to have in her Coney Island beach bungalow encased in made-to-fit plastic sheathing.
The rug is perfect wall to wall and didn't feel like animals were living in between the warp and weft. Great pillows, mattress and clean starched sheets.
For the price, ALL chains ought to come take a look because this place is FABULOUS for the PRICE!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Historic Route 66 Motel is a mid-century modern hotel that is similar in style and atmosphere to hotels and homes designed by Mies van der Rohe, Joseph Eichler, and Oscar Niemeyer. Built in 1963, both the exterior and interior is more than a little reminiscent of "California Modern", a style that was so popular until the latter sixties. Our mission is to provide clean, private, and comfortable overnight accommodations for guests at an extremely reasonable rate. Refrigerators and microwaves are available in select rooms. The Motel also includes a popular European Style Espresso Bar on the west wing where guests receive a 10% discount on all items and an exterior corridor, where guests can park directly, or nearly directly, in front of their rooms. The Historic Route 66 Motel is operated by a professional staff directly managed by the owners. ... more less
