“A little more thought”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2011

Travelling route 66. Stayed at Wigwam motel (number 16) on 8th November 2011. The rooms are larger than they appear from outside. Very comfortable bed. Clean room. Good flat screen tv. Small criticisms - why no bedside table - plenty of room for one. Why no shelf in bathroom? Had to put razor, toiletries etc on floor. Why is there a picture of Venice canal on a wigwam wall?
Completely ruins the indiam theme. At just $66 including taxes - good value. Free WiFi but no breakfast facility.

Room Tip: Choose one at the back - slightly further away from the main road.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

This was the last night on our Historic Route 66 drive from Chicago to Santa Monica. We felt compelled to stay at the Wigwam, and only HOPED it would not be a challenge sleeping there. Far from it, we LOVED the experience. Comfortable room, relatively quiet for being on a main road, good beds, excellent value. My photos of the place at sunrise are incredible, what a bonus. We had phoned while on the road to make the reservation, got there a good bit later than we anticipated, and Kumar was hanging by the pool waiting our arrival. They had the carpets cleaned quite recently, an odor lingered but not a problem. Those rooms are QUITE ROOMY, you would never guess!

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
