I stayed one night and was happy to leave in the morning. On the plus side, the entire complex is adorable. Little brick cottages with carports, old style 66. Reasonable rates ($60), clean.

Called here in march to reserve a room for mid may. was told by the person on the phone that they had plenty of rooms "just come on in" I will find accommodations elsewhere so that I can rest assured that I have a place to sleep after a long days ride on route 66
