I stayed here as part of a group cycling historic Route 66. The tipi or wigwam shape was a marketing gimmick for a different era, but this location is well kept up. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you expect, unless you prefer a bath to a shower

We were told we should experience the WigWam hotel. Yes it was fun and different and surprisingly comfortable. However the facilities are minimal. No coffee in the rooms, only available from reception in the morning. when I went to get a cup in the afternoon, everything had been put away! No microwave but there is a fridge. You have to...

A great family experience, my daughters loved it. The place is super relax, and the wigwams are super cozy, its incredible the roomy they are inside. A perfect stop in a long road trip. It's a great place to stay in the long road. I even bought a t shirt of the place.

What a great surprise this was although we had pre booked it I guess we really did not know what to expect but it was great. A lovely welcome and the rooms in the shape of a Wigwam were lovely, very clean, comfortable and in great surroundings. Anybody doing Route 66 should stay here its great.

Ok... I thought I would give this place another shot, since I was back out this way. Overall the property and the rooms are still pretty decent , the Wi-Fi is still pretty fast... The beds are still comfortable... And you still nostalgic feeling at the place. About the only thing different this time around, is I didn't see any... More

A stay in a Wigwam motel is a 'must do' for an authentic Route 66 road trip, at least if you are doing on the old road as much as possible. This motel is on a main road (old 66) through San Bernardino and so is a little surreal when you are using the small pool in the centre as... More

My wife and I stayed here last night on the penultimate night of our Route 66 trip across America from Chicago to Los Angeles. We arrived around 5pm and checked in with Romila, the lady owner.

Property and rooms are very well maintained . Stayed in the larger non-smoking Wigwam with two double beds. On historic Route 66 it is right on the border of Rialto and San Bernardino. Had read some concerns that it was in a bad neighborhood but the Rialto side was perfectly fine . How ever parts of San Bernardino are a... More

This motel is an icon of the old Route 66. We came here as a part of a tour group doing a driving holiday with a company that specialises in tours on Route 66. The grounds of the motel are really nice and the Wigwams are in great shape and are surprisingly spacious. It is not in a place that... More
