This hotel was clean and charming. Everyone was pleasant. The theme and decor is great for RT 66. We like having a pool and jacuzzi. There are plenty of things to see and do in the area. It is easy to find.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 April 2017 via mobile

Honestly, the best sleep at a hotel/motel I've ever experienced! The bed was comfortable, the room was spotless and the motel itself was so quaint! The room was small but had all that I would want with a small fridge, microwave and cable TV. The staff were welcoming and helpful. This is a sweet throwback to the 50's abs I...

This is nice, well maintained, old-time motel. It's located about 3 miles off of I-44, which may make it inconvenient for some tastes. Everything is sparkling clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. They serve a good breakfast, although the dining space is somewhat limited. There are outdoor spaces that were comfortable on this spring day, but probably wouldn't be...

Overnight stay while on Route 66. Very clean, friendly staff, decent breakfast, and a nice nostalgic motel. Our room was in the back off the street so no road noise. Room to room noise but that was not unexpected. Nice to have our car right outside the door. Would stay there again.

“Glenstone Ave. is fairly noisy. There are two parallel rows of buildings. The rear row might offer a quieter stay.”

“Rooms in back are quieter. Maybe an end room to minimize room to room noise.”
