This motel is one of the many along route 66 in Barstow. It is located at the West side, a bit outside of where the restaurants are. The interior feels dated but the rooms are clean and everything is in working order. The staff is friendly and check in was very quick. The beds sleep very comfortable. Nothing wrong with...

The next stop for a while was my stop at the Route 66 Motel. What really attracted me were the vintage cars and center pieces. I had the most wonderful pleasure of meeting Ved and Mary and I was highly impressed with the knowledge they had of the town's history and photographs, I felt like I was in a top...

Decided to stay overnight here to mark the beginning of our cross country trip on historical Route 66. The motel is definitely dated (as it should be). There were antique vehicles parked throughout the motel to add to its authenticity. but the rooms appeared to have been recently renovated. They were clean and comfortable. Victor and his wife were very...

Chose this motel on the back of all the good reviews so was really surprised at what we saw. The outside area is immaculate, loads of Route 66 memorabilia and great old cars to look at. The owners were great and very helpful and we were given the keys to room 110. The furniture was old and worn, bathroom tiny...

Another of our many stops on the wonderful Route 66. Great Hostess with lots of local information and history for us. The surroundings were very old Americana, with old windmill and cars on the grounds. The owner recommend Jenny's Grill for eating out- it was that good, we had dinner and breakfast there.

Like many others I wanted to show my family the true motel experience. Where better than the (World Famous) Route 66 Motel? Don't stay at these places and then be disappointed that you didn't get free shampoo. It is basic in every way, but the bed was clean and the owner exceptionally friendly. We had two rooms here for what...

I had my kids (12to 16) out for a California round trip and stopped there on the way to LV. I was there one year before on my trip on Route 66 and wanted to show my kids a real vintage motel. they liked it very much. I hope these historic motels on the Route will remain because they are...

This place is heaps of fun if you want to stay somewhere iconic and historic on Route 66. We stayed here on our way to Vegas to break up the drive and we loved it. The town is quaint (a little sketchy but totally safe inside the motel) and the owners are helpful and very nice. The rooms themselves are...

Great place to stay! Great people, great example of the American Dream. Thank you for preserving the real America through your motel! This is the real deal folks. Check out the memorabilia and documentation they have. They are keeping the history of Route 66 alive and have for close to forty years. Thank you for sharing yet another great place...

If you are looking to stay in classic vintage motel, then this is a must stop on your Route 66 trip. The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful. They gave us two postcards at check in. Kids LOVED the round beds. The motel was a hit with all 3 kids.
