The place is absolutely adorable, but the owner is very hateful towards dog owners. We went to snap a few pictures of the outside with friends and get a feel for the place and were yelled at for having our dog ON A LEASH while outside the area. It is interesting considering they have some dog friendly rooms. As excited...

We are avid dog lovers and have 2 pet friendly rooms for people with pets, a designated area for walking the dogs to urinate etc. that doesn't include the front flower beds, sidewalks and yard area where little children play. It might work better if a person pulled into the front office area and asked to walk a dog on...

Was very fortunate to get four rooms, one person per room as we had not pre-booked so could not get a double. Lovely restored motel, very nice rooms, clean, great shower with nice comfy bed. My only niggle was the 3.1 % charge for using a credit or debit card, this was the only motel or restaurant on our Route...

Glad you liked your rooms and stay with us. We charge the processing fee and do not offer discounts because we would have to increase our rates a 13.1% min to do that. We feel it is not fair to the person who pays cash ,check, or travelers check to have to pay the extra fees and also gives people...

I telephoned them three days in advance and asked if they had a PET-FRIENDLY room and they said it would be around $60. I arrived a few days earlier and gave the owner my name and details of my reservation and she said..."you did not tell me you had a pet." Well, the dog is 13 and I practically live...

We have stayed here twice. Rooms are small and lacking on power, but it's what you'd expect for a stay like this. They were clean and recently renovated. As a photographer, I enjoy their neon sign. I would stay here again. Cuba is a nice town.

We usually stay at familiar hotel chains but came across this place online. We don’t tend to stray from the “usual” but decided to try this place based on the reviews. This is an old gas station (pumps still there), with a main cottage and some antique vehicles, The rooms are spread out on the property, which is well lit....

We stopped at the Wagon Wheel on our way to Chicago. It was off season so the place was mostly empty. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. The cabin was clean and comfortable. It was small but plenty of room for the 2 of us. We really enjoyed some sightseeing in the town of Cuba...

A wonderful stay at this authentic motel brought us back to the American on the road dream while travelling through the United State's Route 66 for our honey moon. The room was extremely clean, the outside courtyard gave us a paceful momoent of rest and the staff was very very kind. Stop by if you have the chance, it's worth...

One of the many overnight stops on my Route 66 trip. The Wagon Wheel Motel is a wonderful old motel with some classic architecture and lovely little house rooms. Each little chalet has all the necessary facilities for a lovely nights rest.

Cute, historic motel from the glory days of Route 66. The current owner has done an wonderful job of restoring the place and giving visitors a taste of what it would have been like to stay there in the past. The rooms are quite small and the walls are thin (we sure did hear our neighbours getting their kicks on...

We were on our motorcycles and the motel had covered parking for them as well as rags to clean our bikes. The staff was very friendly. The motel has an interesting Route 66 gift shop. There were restaurants within walking distance.
