“Unique Motel, Fabulous Staff”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

This is one of the cutest and cleanest motels we have ever stayed in. The family who run it are WONDERFUL! They are so friendly and welcoming, and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. We felt safe, secure and very comfortable. We took lots of pictures and had a really wonderful time. We would definitely recommend this adorable motel and plan to return again the next time we are out in California.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great. They are separate little teepees. Something really unique and special...

Very friendly greeting at reception. Clean neat and tidy room. Loved being in this iconic landmark. When we needed a corkscrew the family found one for us. The local shops were very close. Had pizza delivered for dinner because we were so tired.

We Comes from Germany and travel around in california. We stay one night in the Wigwam Motel on the route 66 - a very good Feeling. The Motel is very clean - Wigwams rooms, courtyard and pool was perfect. Our little boy likes the "Indian Motel". The staff was very friendly. Rates was ok. We come back.

My wife and I thought it would be fun to relive a bit of history and stay at the Wigwam motel on Route 66. It turned out to be a real treat. The motel is a charming piece of history and Kumar, the motel manager, was absolutely wonderful. The room, while small, I prefer saying it was cozy, clean, and a delight. We sat by the pool and Kumar told us all about his family and his work to restore this piece of American history. I can say that if you're looking for Americana, you'll find it at The Wigwam Motel!! Thank you Kumar!!

I was expexting the inside of the room to have higher ceilings and the ceiling was quite low. Also the room wasn't as clean as it could have been. My overall rating was o.k. not sure I'd stay there again for that price.

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.
