Located in Carthage, Missouri, the Boots Court was built in 1939 by Arthur Boots, and still carries his name today. It was purchased in August 2011 by sisters Deborah Harvey and Priscilla Bledsaw, who have begun to restore the buildings to their 1940s' appearance. The newly restored rooms include 1940s' touches such as real keys, chrome light fixtures, chenille bedspreads, monogrammed towels, built-in dressers and a radio tuned to a station playing 1940s' hits.

The original red-and-white Boots Court neon signage was restored by the original signmaker in 2013. This famous Art Deco-Streamline Modern building is currently listed by Trip Advisor as the "Best Motel in Carthage", and is very often recommended by users of our Facebook page.

It's clear that the owners are passionate about their motel and this really shines through in the attention to detail in their restorative work, and the enthusiasm they display when greeting guests. This iconic motel is a must-stop for all Route 66 enthusiasts.

"We stayed at the Boots and had a wonderful time. The room was clean and quiet. Debbie was a great source of information and lots to see and do near by. Can't wait to go back."

  1. We stayed here in April and it was a great place to stay. A radio in every room and the station playing could have been right out of the 50's. Deb was full of info for what and where to see. Really hope they can get the rest of the rooms done up. Loved it.
