This is a teepee motel on Route 66 exit in Los Angeles. The teepees are wider and more comfortable than at its counterpart in Arizona. The environment is green; this is a stop not to miss.

Wigwam Village Motel #7

Just stopped by to see the Wigwam Village Motel. I was curious to see what a teepee motel look like. Someday I would like to stay at Wigwam Village Motel #7 so I can say I slept in a teepee.

We set our teepee comfort expectations low, and are usually pleasantly surprised.

I have stayed there a couple of times over the past few years, and I thought the place was great. They have nicely manicured grounds, and the staff was very friendly. The bathrooms still have the colored vintage 1950's tiles! I love that the rooms are circular, but they are small (obviously). In our current landscape, where the past is largely ignored or torn down, it's great to see this unique slice of Americana operating and preserved so well.

Brown begone! The owner of the Wigwam Motel in Rialto is scraping off the dun-colored paint that's covered the wigwams for the past few years. Reportedly he wants his motel listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so he's painting the wigwams to match the color schemes of the other Wigwam Motels in Arizona and Kentucky: cream-colored with a red zig-zag lines around the middle, red trim on the windows, and yellow support poles. The paint job is expected to be complete by mid-September 2011. Even if it doesn't impress the NRHP, it will make better looking wigwams.
