While this is a great place for us to pass on our recommendations for those who have not travelled the Route yet, but are planning on it, I think it is also important to give our recommendation of where NOT to stay of visit.  So if you have any bad reviews feel free to post it to this string.  I will start it out.

 

DO NOT STAY at the Carlyle Motel in Oklahoma City OK.  It is a total crap hole.  The bathrooms are disgusting, paint on the wall was peeling, lamps with no bulbs, and the rooms look like they haven't been updated in about 50 years.  They have a swimming pool, but it is filled with dirt...no really FILLED to the top, with dirt.  There are many much more desirable places in OK City to stay.  The only good thing I can say about this place is they have a nice neon sign.  Stay clear!

LaughLaugh Now that really does paint a picture of a BAD motel!! Made me chuckle though, although probably not you at the time Smile

Set up the Driving Route 66 website in 2010 following the best road trip experience in 2007.

Actually I did chuckle when I saw the pool, but that was the only thing I smiled about there.
