The Real Wigwam Motel

If you've ever seen the movie "Cars" you may remember the "Cozy Cone" motel. This was actually based on a real Route 66 landmark, the Wigwam Motel. Turns out one of the 2 chains was closer than I had originally thought, literally just a few miles away! So we decided to take a mini road trip and take some pics. I just love roadside kitsch :)

Weirder than the fact that they had fake legs underneath this car was the fact that in the backseat they had an old floppy drive. o_O

Their rates are pretty reasonable (50 some to 60 some per night depending on the day/whether its a holiday weekend or not) and the rooms are surprisingly nice for their size. We may have to stay here one day just for the novelty!
