This place used to be vibrant-- a landmark on the historic Route 66. Thing is, the owners bought a property that needed to be invested in and updated, and they totally failed to do so. They just let it deteriorate. Pool is shut down, ice machines shut down, rooms and furnishing worn and in desperate need of updating. For crying...

We stayed at the Pow Wow Inn for the nostalgia, but the Blue Swallow is a much better bet. The pricing is good, but there is a reason for that. Not too clean or comfortable. We probably won't go back.

It is not plush but it is clean and very comfortable. My sister and I enjoyed our stay there. We loved the courtyard. The young people running the motel were very friendly and accommodating, handling our requests in a polite and swift manner. We would most definitely stay here again. From reading previous negative reviews of this motel, we feel...

The Asian front desk clerk was friendly and accommodating. We were merely looking for a pet-friendly, cheap hotel and this fit the bill. However, the carpeting was old and needing replacement and the toilet didn't flush correctly. I would rate it 'below-average' if it weren't for the lovely young lady up front who also had the housekeeping responsibilities. The adjoining...

Stayed here as part of a Route 66 trip. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The pricing wasn't too bad for what was on offer. It's the sorry of hotel that's good for a stay on route but not a vacation.

I was on a cross country drive alone so I wanted a place to just lay my head for the night. I chose the pow wow inn over the chains as I wanted to see what a rustic old Route 66 motel would be like. I didn't have any reservations but my room was only about $40. Okay - the...

Historic Pow Wow Inn, meaning old and in need of updating. The room was large with a king size bed in need of a new mattress. My husband had to put a pillow in the middle of the bed so we didn't fall in the whole. The bathroom was dirty and in need of everything replaced. No, I would not...

Dad & I there May, 2011....While not luxury, the room was clean, owner stingy w/ice but pleasant/accommodating. Had no trouble w/wi-fi srv's either. (never saw bugs, that's a deal breaker) BUT disappointed pool was empty. We had double room for about $ 40.00, found online. No microwave/fridge in room but owner got both in room for us. Restaurant outstanding. Loved...

“The parking for our room was in the deserted looking back of the property. When we first arrived 2 drunk men advised us that our truck & trailer had better be locked up because their vehicle got broken into during another stay at this property. Of course this had us up and checking on the vehicle several times during the night. Since all rooms also open to the center courtyard, I would recommend parking to the side or front of the building, even though we didn't have any problems.”
