My mom and I rested up here on our Route 66 road trip. We were traveling from Chicago to Arizona to spend Christmas with my brother. I loved this place. The owners were friendly, the beds were cozy, the heating system was definitely fun (I was secretly delighted to see the old types of furnaces used back in the day...even if I did have to get up to adjust the "heat" and I literally mean flame that night lol), the bathroom was lovely tiny (but so is mine in Detroit...that's just how bathrooms were made back then). Overall, it was very clean, very homey. I enjoyed our theme room and my mom took pictures of the inside of the garages (painted with scene from the movie "Cars"). When it got dark, I took my camera out and took some *amazing* photos of the beautiful, well-maintained iconic neon sign. I think supporting these places is so worth it. They had fresh hot coffee brewed in the office the next morning available for us. We each bough some swag; I purchased a little white snow cap with "Route 66" on it and a "Blue Swallow" travel mug (which is sitting right in front of me, use it almost daily). I would definitely stay there again. So much history an they are so willing to share!
