The rooms were clean and had a great 1960's style. Friendly staff. The rates are about half what you would expect to pay for a hotel, but be aware that this is a very basic motel. No pool, exercise room, in room refrigerator, or coffee pot. So if you are happy with a nice room with a cool style for a great price, and don't need or use all those extras, you will like this place as much as we did.
- 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
