Unfortunately, they're now permanently closed. :(

Bless their hearts... what a comedy of errors this place was. We stayed here in June 2021 and they were brand new. So new, in fact, that the room darkening shades hadn't been installed in our room. They tried to move us to a different room, but no luck there, either. Thankfully, one of the maintenance men was still there, Walter, and he very kindly taped a large black tarp over our window so we could get some sleep. Note that there are no ice makers on the room floors; just one down by the main lobby. The hotel itself is clean, and they had the grab & go breakfast down to a science! I think they just need a little more time to get their stuff together. :) The staff was nice and helpful, and I think the hotel will be fine eventually.

If you, or your 12 year old son, is very much into firefighting, you should definitely make a stop here! We swung by on our June 2021 road trip and I'm so glad we did! It's not huge, but the amount of memorabilia they have stuffed in there is impressive! We were even able to find the fire dept badge for our small GA county!! My son loved the dioramas that depict the original days of fighting fire and he also particularly enjoyed being able to climb onto and into the old firetrucks outside! Well worth a visit!!

We stopped here on our 2021 road trip as we were coming from Amarillo to OKC. Definitely worth the stop just so you can see the sheer size of these things! My kids were pretty impressed. It's in a safe area (right next to police station/city offices) and you can get right up to the turbine blade. According to the site, the blade is 122' long; I took a picture of my daughter at the small end and you can just barely see my son way in the background at the other end. They really are huge! Definitely worth a stop if you're not from a part of the country where wind farms are a thing (like us!).

Definitely worth a stop if you're a Rt. 66 nut! :) My kids & I enjoyed it and spent probably about an hour here. It was REALLY hot (like 100+ in the shade), so we didn't walk the entire grounds. The first building/gift shop has some fun things, like sitting in a pink cadillac to "drive" down Rt. 66. There's also a short fire pole that my son just LOVED going down. The 2nd large building has some neat old cars, including a old military Jeep that is in phenomenal condition (and thrilled my Jeephers heart). The little mini-town outside is cute to poke around, but the buildings aren't really open to go in (well, they weren't in June 2021, anyway). Definitely worth a stop, even if you only take a picture of the massive Rt 66 sign out front!

This was a fun pit-stop on our Rt. 66 road trip. The town has several cool old buildings, too. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area!

We stopped here on our June 2021 road trip and I'm glad we took the time. It's a very cute little gas station, but it's right next to someone's house, so we didn't get out and poke around. The town of McLean was also very interesting to drive through; so desolate and it felt almost like a ghost town (see B&W pic). We literally didn't see one other vehicle on the road while we were there. Phillips 66 on the Route is definitely worth a quick stop for a photo.

The location listed here is incorrect, but if you just carry on down I-40 (heading East), you'll see it on the left. We didn't stop, but my son took a quick pic from the car as we were driving past. Pretty wild.

We stopped here on our June 2021 road trip, heading out of Amarillo to Oklahoma City. The kids thought it was very fun (they still had their cans of paint from visiting Cadillac Ranch earlier that day). There are also some other neat abandoned buildings to explore and photograph on the site as well. If you're careful, you can actually get your kids into a few of the Slug Bugs for some fun pictures. Definitely worth a stop if you're heading down Rt. 66!

We swung by here on our June 2021 road trip and I'm glad we did. It's right off the highway and as of our stop, the fence was open and we were able to walk right up to the legs. The area that it's in is so flat and desolate; an entirely different kind of beauty that what we're used to (in GA). Definitely worth a quick stop!
