Here for one night after traveling down route 66 from the Pasadena area. Terrific drive too. Stayed in Wigwam #18 which is back from the road. Neither my companion nor I heard any road noise. Very clean with modern amenities, Wi-fi included. The room is called a deluxe queen and is plenty big for two. Bed, couch, TV on wall,...

We included this as an experience on our Route 66 road trip, we loved it. It's very quiet, so If you are open for something different, go for it! If you're a 5 star customer, this is not your way to go.

These little huts are very cute! We stayed 1 night here. Despite the bad reviews about management, but why not try. We thought they were very friendly, maybe a little different but nice. We had no issues with anything or anyone. The rooms were clean and the property was well kept. The inside of the teepee is a little dated...

The Wigwam is an excellent place to stay. The rooms are updated, they are clean, they have full size towels (imagine that in a nostalgic motel) and Kumar is fantastic to talk to! This was our last overnight stay as we went from Chicago to Santa Monica and we are so glad that we stayed here. Plus, they are pet...

The actual site and the wigwams were fine. The reception was very welcoming and helpful. I think that when route 66 was in its heyday the motel was out of town but the town has engulfed it, otherwise why put it where it is today. The area looks a bit run down, but the accommodation is fine and retro. Unfortunately...

We stayed here for the nostalgia. I agree the immediate area feels a little dodgy but the motel site was fine . The room itself was a little dated but it's a retro hotel so that's what we expected. We also encountered some disinterest and abruptness from the office on arrival but apart from that it was a fun stay.

This was our destination. We drove to San Bernardino just to see the wigwam. It is wonderful. We didn't stay overnight but the front desk guy in the big wigwam let us look inside. I love that it still exists. It is on the old rt 66. The area around the wigwam is a dump. It is a shame that...

We stayed here one night in January and I will start with the positives. We paid $108 for 4 people, our room had 2 double beds and a bathroom. From the outside the Wigwams look amazing and I loved the romance of the famous Route 66 Wigwam Motel which is why we booked it and was delighted with the cost....

The Wigwam Motel is such a great place to stay! The family that owns it is SO nice and accomodating. We don't live too far from here, but whenever we go to a concert out that way, we opt to stay there, rather than driving home, because it's just such a wonderful experience! Definitely recommend it! A+++++!!!!!!

Historical landmark motel on Route 66 (Foothill Blvd.). An old funky wigwam style motel that exudes the history from decades past. Rooms are small, but very clean. Don't expect the Hilton, but for the money you can't go wrong. Everything worked in the room and it was a cold day/night and the heater worked really well. It was a lot...
