Lipstick on a pig. If you're gonna restore an historic Route 66 motel, please either do it right or don't do it at all. The exterior murals and neon are the only good things about this place. We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe room. Light showing around an original 80-year old exterior room door is one thing. An inch-tall gap under the door with no threshold isn't. That's big enough for critters, wind, rain, etc. to get under. That should be considered unacceptable. Also, the wood of the door jamb was so damaged and in such poor shape that the lock and deadbolt were pointless. BOTH could have been repaired without detracting from the historical feel of the motel. I'll ignore that the original door is being held together by two steel angle-irons. Room looked clean, but was only so on the surface. All of the paint was worn and the woodwork was dirty. All of the furniture was well-worn and from another hotel. The trash cans all had a Vegas casino's name on them. And then there was the bathroom. It's 80 years old. I booked this room full-well expecting that, and a resulting level of period-correct funkiness. It delivered trucker-hotel sketch. The sink was original, but had been painted at least 3 times. That would have been OK, except that the paint was peeling and dirty. I didn't even try the shower. 80-year old tile just looks dirty, not vintage. Skip this place and stay at the Blue Swallow or the Roadrunner Inn if you want the vintage Route 66 experience. WOULD NOT STAY AGAIN.

Property restored but dated. Kitschy. Clean but well used. It did maintain the character and authenticity of a true Route 66 motel. A step back in time that’s hard to find these days. Proprietor very friendly and knowledgeable of area attractions. No breakfast but rooms had microwave and fridge. Quiet. Air conditioner took a while to kick in & a bit noisy.

We look forward to staying at the El Trovatore Motel each time we travel out West. The rooms are well maintained and have great themes. If you're traveling Route 66, it is a comfortable, quiet place to stay with lots of cool history!

I reserved my room with an American Express card and the site says they accept American Express. I get to the motel and they said that they no longer accepted American Express . I had to pay using a debit card and I didn't get any points for that stay.

Nice clean hotel for a cheap price

The owners are super helpful with info about the area. This made the stay better for sure. The theme of the hotel is cute and the rooms are clean and appear to be lovingly maintained. That said -- it is pretty old and not at all updated. It looks like the shower is original to the 1930s. You may find this charming or you may find it uncomfortable. In any case, you only paid $50 and for that price, it's a decent stay.
