Route 66 Accommodations

If there’s one thing you need after a long day on the road it is a good motel or hotel to retire to for the night. Luckily, there are plenty of options for Route 66 accommodations to choose from. Plus, on The Mother Road, many of the best motels and hotels are attractions in and of themselves.

Route 66 is home to some of the best vintage motels you can find, with iconic neon signs to match (be sure to make room for a stop to check them out even if you don’t have a reservation). Many of these historic motels have been renovated to feature all of the modern conveniences you could ask for (like premium mattresses and luxurious linens).

Of course if that’s not your travel style there are also an array of AirBNBs, campsites, RV parks, and chain hotels along the route. So, if you want a kitchen, a year-round pool, or a place to pitch a tent, you’re sure to find something that will fit your needs.
