Perfect stop for Route 66ers. The owner was very informative about the history of the hotel and the area. The hotel and surrounding grounds were quirky and nostalgic of the Route 66 Era. I had only one complaint, I didn't have any hot water. Which was disappointing. The pool was not filled but I was not wanting to use it...

My Family and I had a one night stop over here on the way from Vegas to Grand Canyon. Having never done the Motel thing before we were a little nervous. We received a lovely warm welcome. Our room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was a little dated, but super clean and functional. All in all it was a...

When we arrived, the man at the desk (the owner, I suppose) was very kind and friendly and gave us a lot of informations about the motel, the city and their history, but... The room was very poorly maintained and cold and the heater didn't function. Furthermore, the bathroom was ridiculous, with a very little and scraped sink and the...

Was better than I expected. My idea of a place to stay overnight on a trip is the cheaper the better. The price was very reasonable for just a place to cleanup, sleep and freshen up. I would stay here again.

A true motel on R66 filled with history, friendly owners, and a comfortable room at a reasonable price. If you are traveling R66 or just stopping in Kingman the El Trovatore Motel is a nice break from modern motels at higher rates. It also helps keep the Mother arias alive and well. We met nice guests sitting outside, talked with...

Relatively clean rooms. Quaint. Perfect for the European traveler that wants to be conned into the "a route 66" image. Very talkative owner, sweet wife. Get there early for best choice of rooms. Kingman, Az. is generally a pit with a capital P, but survivable after the owner explained that everyone carries a gun. Stockton hill has beautiful landscapes and...

I spent one night here on the way to Flagstaff. You cannot check in until 2pm and I arrived way early so had to wait quite a long time. I stayed in room 105. It had a king bed, fridge, good air conditioning/heating, clean hardwood floors, microwave, closet, flat screen TV, 3 drawer chest, a second closet, desk and chair....

This was a really fun stay. We arrived late in the evening and I wish we had had more time to chat with the owners because they were so friendly! They even gave us "Route 66 Passport" and had their dog do some tricks for us. We were given a choice of available themed rooms and I chose the Marilyn...

Had a one night stopover here on our route 66 trip. Wonderfully quirky motel. All the outside of the rooms are decorated. In particular, one block has a frieze of the full geography of route 66.Rooms were themed and we had a tussle over whether to stay in the John Wayne or Marilyn Monroe rooms.I won that one! Rooms were...

I made a reservation with El Trovatore in June 2016, for September 14th. At that time they charged my credit card $90.40. On September 11th, while travelling through Colorado, my wife became seriously ill, and we had to return to our home in Michigan. On the morning of the 11th, I called El Trovatore to cancel our reservation, received only...
