Route 66 Motel

This is a unique motel by its decoration and very interesting with its reception. The cleanliness could be better, but don't forget that you're in a historic place. Lurking in the parking lot are old cars, between rooms there are recesses full of goodies, and the rooms are all equipped with round beds. The exterior wall has, I think, the longest map of Route 66, yet there are other places that claim this title. An essential stop. Price is very moderate.

Did lots of motels along historic Route 66 have round beds? It would make sense in the Teepee motels.
