Dated but clean. Stopped here on way to Vegas. Indian woman hostess was very nice and helpful. Fresh coffee and granola bars in office. Lots of route 66 parafinalia. The water was not hot in the shower and was slow.

I just adore The Wigwam Motel and The Patel family. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable. Everyone is helpful and friendly. The location is excellent. I truly cannot say enough good things about this place. I just left there a week ago and have already booked my next stay.

This was our second stay here. It's a great quirky place. Clean, spacious & quite quiet considering the location. We arrived much later than scheduled due to traffic but had no trouble upon arrival. Highly recommended if doing Route 66 or just need a cheap place to stay.

If you're travelling Route 66, sleeping in a teepee is a must do. There are two such motels left on Route 66 and the one at Rialto has been beautifully restored. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom nicely done and clean and there's a fridge in the room. It's a great stop if you are finishing your trip - 80...

ALL Route 66 Roadies have this one on their list of places to stay. Tipis are very roomy & the staff are really hospitable. Clean pool & nice area to relax beside. You won't be disappointed. Stay here once & I can guarantee you'll wanna stay again.

By the look of it from the outside, we thought it would be small. Amazed to enter a very spacious room with a sofa, table, TV and fridge. Friendly owner and a clean bed. The only downfall was our very low shower head. Other than that our overall stay was a good experience. A fun place to stay down Route...

This is an historic gem of a motel on famous Route 66 in Rialto, CA. The motel was created in 1949 by a man named Frank Redford. Unfortunately, I have not bad an opportunity to stay at the motel; I've only visited the property. But if you're taking the must-do excursion down Route 66, you must stop in here for...

I was skeptical when my wife said she booked a tepee when we were planning our RT 66 trip, But I have to admit now that if you are doing the 66 things - you should do stay here for a night. Pluses - a cool old fashion motel concept; neat and tidy property w/ very cool concrete wigwams, old...

Totally cool experience. My daughters dug it! Shower was awesome and the staff was friendly. It is on a major road in San Bernardino so the traffic noise is a bit load outside but not bothersome in the "rooms". Staff even gave us a couple suggestions for local eats.

Traveling with my daughter on a Rt 66 adventure. Of course we had to sleep in a wigwam! Turned out to be clean, spacious, comfortable and fun. Didn't get to meet the legendary owner but his daughter and son were great hosts. Very friendly and helpful. Arrived too late to go out to eat but they arranged for delivery from...
