  1. Default Tips on Route 66 hotels

    Hi Everyone,

    My girlfriend and I are planning a roadtrip in April. We're driving from Austin to California. We are hitting Route 66 in Albuquerque and taking that through. Neither of us have taken this roadtrip before s any southwestern tips are welcome. We would really like to stay in some cheesy hotels (heart-shaped beds, what have you) and see some off-the-beaten-path attractions. If anyone has any advice on places it would be greatly appreciated, thank you!!!

    The Wigwam Motel should be up there as one of the first on the list of places to consider!

    The Great Midwest, Illinois to be precise

    Default The Mother Road

    Definitely check out the El Rancho Hotel in Gallup, NM.

    Stay at a downtown motel in Williams, Az and walk to the bars and restaurants.

    There are several old Route 66 favorites here. Try The Blue Swallow.
