“Not as bad as I thought it would be”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

Travel mostly for business and usually stay in 4&5 star hotels. Unfortunately nothing like that exists in this area. The good thing about this motel is that it was clean and safe (also its kitch value!). Bad thing -- no one appears to know how to use a computer (couldn't get an internet confirmation nor print a boarding pass), no hairdryer in the bathroom, and worst of all -- no natural light -- the tiny windows are covered up by non-openable curtains, so I had to keep my door open during the day for anything but fluroescent gloom. But for $66/night, no complaints.

Room Tip: all the same as far as I could see

Just got home from our stay at the Wigwam Motel in Rialto and let me just say it was a blast. It's great to see that a wonderful piece of our history is being restored and we can have the fun of experiencing it. Kumar, the manager, was the perfect host, sitting at the pool and discussing his travel plans with us. The grounds are well manicured and the neighborhood, while older, was as safe as any other suburban city. The wigwam we stayed in was clean and comfortable. They're small but hey...what do you expect of a teepee. It was over 100 degrees outside and our room was cool and comfortable all night long. We definitely plan on returning for future fun visits. There are plenty of restaurants along Foothill Blvd. but don't expect fine dining, after all it's Route 66. Thanks for the memories Kumar!!
