Wigwam Motel - Tipis On The Historic U.S. Route 66Wigwam Motel  

The Americana and motel culture that grew up as motoring became widespread in the first half of the 20th Century is actually one of the most novel aesthetic moments of the period. The Wigwam motel was built by a Native American enthusiast who patented his unique concrete structures and set them up in the manner of a Native American encampment.

Its location on the famous Route 66 has made it one of the more famous roadside attractions in the US, and it is even featured in the Pixar film, Cars. Your Wigwam is 25 meters in diameter and is decorated by imitating the native style. In the innovative design, there is free wifi, a bathroom, and a shower. There is even a BBQ pit for you to cook hardcore amounts of meat in the traditional way.
