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

The Americana and motel cultures matured together as motoring became widespread in the first half of the 20th Century, and it is one of the most novel aesthetic moments of the period.

The Wigwam motel was built by a Native American enthusiast who patented the unique concrete structures and set them up like 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 82 feet (25 meters) in diameter and is decorated by imitating the native style.

Inside the tipis, you will find 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.

Wigwam Hotel Pool

Jump to the kidney-shaped swimming pool on a hot day after a long drive. By the way, Wigwam is one of the few motels on Route 66 to have a pool!

The Cozy Cone Motel from the Pixar movie, Cars, was modeled after the Wigwam.
