Route 66 provides many and plenty of options to stay at reliable and trusted chain motels where you know what you're going to get. That's great but its also boring....you won't show your friends/family your USA road trip photo's to hear "that Best Western motel looks great". However, Wigwam Motel is exactly the sort of independent, boutique motel that makes a Route 66 holiday something to remember. This is a cool and quirky stop-off, it may be only concrete wigwam you'll ever stay in so DO IT! I am surprised at some of the comments left on this site about the staff/owner.....I guess it depends on what sort of person you are and how accepting you are of other people. Kumar the owner is a down with the kids California dude who has clearly worked hard to make this place what it is, we both found him to be a great host and very welcoming. It's a little out of town so needs a drive to get to restaurants etc, however since you're on a roadtrip that's fine.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Quirky 1949 property featuring simple, concrete tepees with free Wi-Fi, plus an outdoor pool. Remember the good-ole-days, before air travel was easily affordable and the Road-Trip was king? Those days are still here-at the Wigwam Motel! Originally constructed in 1949, this is the 7th and final Wigwam location in the series of similar properties first launched in by developer Frank Redford in his home state of Kentucky. Situated on famed Route 66, the most famous highway of all, the Wigwam Motel is in the true American tradition of the "Roadside Attraction," just like the giant dinosaurs, villages of mystery and other classic roadside attractions that lined America's highways of the past. The Wigwam Motel is a real slice of Americana, bringing back the heyday of our glorious American past. ... more less
