Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook is one of only three surviving “Wigwam Villages” in the US and one of two situated on Route 66 (the other being in Rialto, CA).
The term “iconic” can be overly used when discussing Route 66 but in this instance is wholly deserved. Each “room” is a huge concrete tee-pee and has a genuine vintage car parked outside.
The tee-pees are deceptively large – mine contained two double beds, a TV and full bathroom with shower.
The area was peaceful and after a short walk to stretch the legs my wife and I settled in for the night with wine and chocs. I won’t be driving Route 66 without a stay at The Wigwam Hotel.
