Cool little place, pre booked as 1st night of LA / Vegas/ San Fran / H1 road trip. Yes it's a bit industrial nearby- but it's been there since 1949! Very well kept grounds, rooms a little dated but nice and clean with very comfy bed. Friendly staff and perfect for a road trip

We stayed here to go to an event a few miles away. The neighborhood is a little run down. Mostly businesses...tire shops, liquor stores, and junkyards. The motel is nice because you can park your car just outside your door. No need to lug your luggage up stairs, or across huge parking lots. The rooms are cute and clean. The... More

Loved our stay at the Wigwam motel! This is a beautifully preserved piece of Americana folk art- a step back in time to stay here and an education on historic Rt. 66. The owner/ manager, Kumar, is friendly and well informed and can tell you all about the hotel, its history, and about the broader history of Rt 66, and... More

This Route 66 motel is quirky and fun, dating back to classic route 66 novel motels. The accommodation is clean and well maintained. The service was good with the receptionist being friendly and helpful.

Having chose to ignore the negative reviews of this motel I went with an open mind and was very excited to stay at such an unusual accommodation whilst on a road trip in California. However it all became a big mistake when phoning to confirm my booking. Kumar proceeded to tell me that my booking didn't exist as it was... More

Unusual and fun one night stay at this little gem. Arrived quite late after a long drive, quick no fuss check in, parked next to our teepee which was surprisingly good size, clean and tidy, shower worked fine, and the hotel has a nice little swimming pool so we were able to have a lovely refreshing swim. The surrounding area... More

WigWam is a Motel you have to visit for minimum one time in your live. A great experience. We've been here the first time and we're looking forward for the next visit. The guy at front desk (i think it was the owner) is a cool guy. Complete facility was well maintained. Romms are clean and renovated. Only the bathroom... More

It's a fun setting, a nostalgic throwback to the 50's road trip era. The rooms are small and modest, not fancy. My room was clean, however my travel partner's room had the very distinct aroma of marijuana. I wasn't bothered by noise from anyone, even though it was a full house that night, however I had to use the window... More

The owner of this historic establishment, Kumar [---] is a very strange individual.....upon our arrival we told him we had just travelled from Vegas....his response was 'oh you're supporting the corporate bubble'. Strange response but it got worse. When we booked our wigwam back in October 2015 we were told it would accommodate our family of 5 and that they... More

I remember seeing this sort of place all over the West when I was a kid and always wanted to stay in one. Finally got the chance when we found it almost by chance late one night when passing through the area. The grounds are very neat, spacious and contain a few old relics to add interest. There is a...
