• Roy's Motel and Cafe - Amboy California

      This is a semi-abandoned town on historic Route 66. The gas station has reopened. The motel is still being restored. In 2005, the town was purchased by Albert Okura, who also owns the Juan Pollo restaurant chain and he had plans to restore Amboy to a 1950's look. Not much restoration has been accomplished over the last seven years, although there are several references to a million dollars being pledged to complete this work. The web site (see links) owned by the Juan Pollo company has some great historical photos and information about current plans.

      If you go:
      Stop in at the gas station, cool drinks and tall tales abound. The Amboy Crater is a nice walk if the weather isn't too hot. Always carry water any time of the year.
