This was recommended by one of our guidebooks--and they were totally right! Friendly staff (the owner even froze our ice containers overnight so we'd have them ready for our cooler!), pet friendly. (The night of our stay, we had Barney, the Great Dane, next door, 3 cats in another room, 3 dogs in another--that I know of.)
Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, very quiet--did not hear a peep from any of the guests after we went to bed. Another big plus--it's the type of place I'd recommend to any other female travelers as being a great choice--we sat outside our door and enjoyed the breeze and view of the park across the street in complete comfort.
- 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
