The room Elvis liked to sleep in.

Elvis Stayed Here Motel

Field review by the editors.

Clinton, Oklahoma

When Elvis Presley and his entourage drove from Memphis to Vegas, the best midway point, in his opinion, was The Trade Winds Motel in Clinton, OK. The best room, in his opinion, was Room 215. So he stayed there on four separate occasions. To preserve that memory, Trade Winds' management has kept the room decorated the way it was during the Swingin' Sixties. The suite (his entourage stayed in the other room) contains a black Naughahyde fainting couch/Fold-A-Bed combo, green pile carpeting, and fixtures from a happy time gone by.

The plaque on the door of Room 215 kept getting stolen, so there isn't one anymore. Evidence of superior American Culture: sanitized paper strip across the King's throne. Sign of the times: it's a non-smoking suite.
