We drove Route 66 in August 2012 and were looking forward to our night in Tulsa. However, various people had warned us about this particular stretch of Route 66 and, as it turned out, rightly so. When we arrived at the Desert Hills Motel, we were absolutely petrified! A very suspicious looking 'guest' sat on the curb of the motel...

I am wondering if I stayed in the same place all the other reviewers did. I did come on here before I booked as was Really worried about the room but still booked for some reason.

Did a road trip on Route 66 starting June 1. All Route 66 books mentioned this motel. It looks charming from the outside. Drive by and look at motel but DO NOT stay there. The rooms are the worst I have ever seen. We noticed that most of their customers came and went in a taxi !!! If you are...

Stayed here during our Route 66 trip in October 2011. The motel has it's charm, the rooms are quite basic but clean, but you don't get the same welcome as you do with other classic places along the Route. But as a place to spend a night, it does the job!

costs rising I understand but it does not match the motel. Run down. Indian (India) family. When grandma knocks on your door in the morning you better give her your garbage.

To be fair, we didn't even make it the whole night. I went on a Route 66 road trip with my father, and we tried to stay in the more vintage "neon sign" motels along the way. After being spoiled by some of the more fun, novel, and lovely motels prior...this place was pretty darn tragic. Listen to the other...
