Reviewed 8 November 2017

This is an old neon motor court motel on Route 66. We have driven cross-country twice on the route and stayed in many similar places. The best thing about this one is the location and the beautiful neon sign. We had an odd room---looked like it might have been the manager's residence at one point, as there was a piano in it and lots of empty shelving units. We had to get help from the office to get the cable tv to work, as it was not properly connected. Bathroom tiles were heated, which was a nice touch.

I've actually stayed here three different times this year, and never had a problem with anything. The property is clean, the rooms are clean, the Wi-Fi is decent, the bathrooms might be a little small but otherwise decent. Definitely a classic Route 66 Motel. Tally's Good Food Cafe' is just a few blocks from there, and the food is decent.

A classic 1950s Route 66 motel, complete with a huge green cactus neon sign. The rooms themselves are dated (obviously) but do look a little tired and could perhaps do with a lick of paint. Bathroom was pretty retro, clean, and had heated tiles as promised in previous reviews on here. Close to nearby tourist attractions and located directly on the old route.
A little more expensive than other chain motels in the area but Rte 66 enthusiasts will be in their element!

Fabulous place to stay right on 11st (Route 66) 2 blocks from the famous Tallys Cafe. Easy to get to all of Tulsa 66's sites from motel. Very well kept property. This is a ma & pa type mote. Able to park adjacent to room.

This place is so-so. We've stayed here 3 times just because of its' location. Could use an update. We generally don't spend much time in the room so we didn't need much. Had a fridge. Bathroom could have been cleaner.

Room Tip: I prefer to stay in a room closer to the office.
