I read the reviews thinking I would like this motel, I was wrong. Many things were wrong with this room. First of all I requested a "pet" friendly room so perhaps the non-pet friendly rooms are nicer. With that being said, I was disappointed with my stay here. First thing I noticed was the odor. It smelled to me like something rancid, I suspect it actually was old varnish that needs to be redone. The front door sticks and made noise when opening and closing. The bed was very soft as if the mattress needed replacing. The carpeting seemed very worn with several flaws in it. It was very reasonably priced so I didn't give it the lowest rating.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Historic Route 66 Motel is a mid-century modern hotel that is similar in style and atmosphere to hotels and homes designed by Mies van der Rohe, Joseph Eichler, and Oscar Niemeyer. Built in 1963, both the exterior and interior is more than a little reminiscent of "California Modern", a style that was so popular until the latter sixties. Our mission is to provide clean, private, and comfortable overnight accommodations for guests at an extremely reasonable rate. Refrigerators and microwaves are available in select rooms. The Motel also includes a popular European Style Espresso Bar on the west wing where guests receive a 10% discount on all items and an exterior corridor, where guests can park directly, or nearly directly, in front of their rooms. The Historic Route 66 Motel is operated by a professional staff directly managed by the owners. ... more less
