        A comfortable stay in a fun "Route 66" Icon

        The Wigwam Motel #6 is located off I-40 just outside downtown Holbrook. When we got there we were a little worried about the neighborhood. Everything seemed empty and rundown. Don't let that keep you from trying these very adorable, "Route 66" icons. The room was comfortable and not expensive. The bathroom was tiny but this is not meant to be a 5-star hotel experience.

        Historical Traveler Reviews Wigwam Motel Holbrook



        Spent 1 night in Wigwam.......

        If you are into nostalgia, this place is great!

        Along Historic Route 66 and very close to Painted Desert and Petrified Forest!

        If you are a light sleeper, trains running all night could be a problem but, my wife (who is a very light sleeper) and I actually had no problem with them, especially for just 1 night!

        Wigwams are neither plush or lavish but, I mean, how often can you say you spent a night in a Wigwam during your vacation?

        Great Retro Fun


        My family and I took a road trip in June, from Ohio to California. I decided it would be fun to follow portions of Route 66, and pix of the Wigwam kept showing up while I was doing my research, so I booked us for a night there. My parents and sister stayed in one wigwam, my husband and I in another - we all agreed it was great: clean rooms, friendly owner, reasonably priced, and convenient to the national parks and monuments we were headed to in Arizona. Definitely one of the best lodging experiences we had on the trip. If you go, be sure to have breakfast at Joe and Aggie's - my husband could not stop raving about the breakfast burrito!

        Sleep on old Route 66


        Visited the Wigwam in spring 2004. The wigwams were clean, comfortable and retro. They're interiors a throwback to the days of old Route 66. I think they would make a great overnight accommodation if traveling to nearby (less than 15 minutes) Petrified Forrest and Painted Desert. Yes there are a lot of trains rolling by but the solid concrete walls of the wigwam do not let any noise in whatsoever. I would recommend to everyone.

        Americana at its Best!


        Our stay at the Wigwam was one of the highlights of our two week trip out west in May 2004. The wigwams are cozy with more room than you would expect. It's true that trains run frequently and close by but once inside your wigwam you hardly even hear them. If your ever in Holbrook you have to treat yourself and your family to a bit of history!

        Unique experience!


        Our homage to the Mother Road started with a stay at the Wigwam Motel. In your lifetime, you must visit the Wigwam at least once! It's absolutely surreal to come upon the property and once you're there, it's a fun night! John Lewis, innkeeper and host, has a unique personality. It's cozy and clean, although the wigwams can use some upgrades such as sealing the door jambs and heating. Really, that's minor because you're there for the ambiance! The shower works really well and amazingly enough, there's enough room for everyone and everything. I didn't have a problem with the trains rumbling through; I was in Wigwam #4 and had a good night's sleep. The best thing is well-behaved dogs are welcome; Gus gives the Wigwam 4 paws!

        Great fun!!!


        we were fortunate to be able to stay at the wigwam motel in june 2003 on our way to see def leppard in albuquerque. it is quite a nostalgic place and i hope that it will remain there for years to come. the price was right, the accomodations comfortable and clean. we hope to have a reason to be heading that way again someday and if so, we would definately stay there again. its too bad that there are not more places like it that remind us of america's "route 66" past instead of all the boring chain motels.

        Loved the Wigwam Motel!


        We had been looking forward to staying at the Wigwam Motel. It was even better than we thought--it was cozy; the owners were very nice; and the vintage cars parked in front of each Wigwam really added a great touch!

        Unusual, but...


        Certainly different. Evokes the 50's, but interiors look as though they haven't been refurbished since then. Bathroom was very basic & uninviting. Nobody mentioned that as well as being on the old Route 66, it was right next to the railroad. The wigwam shuddered every time a freight train passed (at least every half hour through the night). I would avoid Holbrook completely, not a lot going for it.



        What a fantastic place. First saw it when we 'did' rt66 in '99 but had already booked in elsewhere. Went back in 2001 and stayed the night. Absolutely the experience of a lifetime and the old chrome gas-guzzlers scattered around the car park really make you feel as though you've gone back in time. If I remember correctly it's run by two brothers and when we booked before our trip the one I spoke to gave me a password to quote when we checked in. On arrival I said that I had a password and the other brother said that his brother gave everyone the same password!! Will stay again this year if we pass it by on the way to Albuquerque.

        A Great Place!


        A blast from the past! We have stayed at the Wigwam two times, the last being 9/02. Good room and great people. While it may lack some of the extras you get at chain establishments - like Avacado Body Balm and in room coffee, etc., you will not notice because the whole experience is totally unlike any other place you may have bedded down for the night.

        Give them a try and re-live or experience for the first time how much fun traveling used to be. You wil enjoy the change of pace!

        Petrified Forest We drove a little over 3 1/2 hours to get to the petrified forest. The landscape changed considerably. The area was much drier and desert-like. When we pulled into the park we noticed that our car temperature gauge read 100 degrees. It was hot. We entered the visitor center & watched the movie about the park. We talked with the …

        Indian Territory

        ... walked over and got some dinner there to take back to our trailer. While we were waiting for it to be grilled, we saw the most beautiful sunset of the whole trip, but neither of us had our cameras.

        I probably need to post a disclaimer about using the word. "Indian", but that is the word that is posted on all the signs around here. I am not sure who it is who wants them called "Native Americans", but I do not see that term used locally.
