“Great, fun place to stay!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

The staff was super friendly and helpful. My kids loved staying here, saying,"This is the best day of my life!" When I asked about where to get dinner, the staff gave helpful suggestions. The pool was funWe will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not near the dumpsters.

My wife, kids, and I have stayed at the Wigwam Motel several times now. ALL of the stays have been so pleasant it has forced me to leave a review for others! First off, the area is a classic stretch of Route 66. You can travel in either direction and see some wonderful sites. The motel itself is very well kept and extremely clean. The owners are, in my opinion, the best hosts we have encountered and we do a lot of touring in the U.S.! I recommended this motel to my brother, now he is visits on a regular basis. The owner has done his research on American history, and is really fun to sit and talk with. I highly recommend this motel for a fun, old fashioned step back in time.

Room Tip: The rooms are much larger on the inside than you would expect, especially the rooms with the couch...

Had a very comfortable and hospitable stay at the Wigwam this week. Kumar, the manager, is a young guy with an obvious love for the Wigwam motel and for Route 66. It was really fun discussing the various people and places we shared in common--it's obvious that Kumar knows them quite well! So, to the next generation that will keep the route alive and well for our sons and daughters to visit in the future!

Dear Friends.,

With great pleasure I'd like to Commend The Wigwam Motel for offering...,
Executive treatment to all guests.

The Wigwams are one of The Last All Original Route 66 attractions still available to..,
weary or adventuresome travelers...,

The Tee Pees have been Restored Better than New and are open to the Public as well..!!

I'm Proud Recommend the Wigwam Motel.,

Best Regards,
Jon Bradley Sr.

Room Tip: Just ask for Kumar the owner..

I live on Los Angeles but had to be in San Bernardino for the weekend. What better place to stay then the Wigwam on Route 66?! The immediate area is not exactly full of great things to do, but there are several good food options near the hotel, and it is an easy drive on 66 from here to LA. The owners have done a fantastic job restoring the place and are very thoughtful and caring. This is definitely a place worth staying at while driving the Mother Road.

As soon a we arrived , we regretted our choice. The area is really not touristic , quite unsafe . The boulevard is busy , no restaurant or fast food , and at night you just feel like close the door and lock up!
The room was not really clean , the exterior was not fine at all , lots of old stuff and garbage on the back . We did at least 50 different motels during our stays in the US, it' s the first time we had to put 25 cents in the ice machine !
We thought it would be so fun to sleep at this historic place , but that wasn't at all .
We don't understand why there is so much good reviews , are they fake? Strange...
