It was your average inn. You get what you pay for I suppose. There were spiders in the bathroom and the air smelled musty but the bedding was clean and the staff was pretty nice.

This place is Old but in good condition. It's part of Route 66 from the 60's and that is why it is so cool and you should stay there so you can experience the feel of Route 66.

Check in was nice. Room was real clean but smelled like gym socks. Opened the door for 10 mins was all good. Motel is old and well maintained except keycard was hard to get to work. Almost couldn’t get it to work in the am while loading to leave. Still had things in the room and key wouldn’t work. Office is only open from 3pm to 10pm so I was stuck. Tried it again for about 5 mins and finally got it to work. It was rm 117.
