Please tell us about lodging along The Mother Road, including all details you can remember. My ramblings below should form a pretty complete template for the sort of information that is requested. Of course anything you wish to add will only make this better. Having this information and people's personal recollections together in one place will be very helpful when folks tour Route 66, as Driveway builder and his family recently did. I for one have travelled a goodly portion of 66. Most on here that live in the US and Canada probably have travelled at least some of it. And many from other countries come here specifically to travel some or all of it. When Clarence gets home from paint jail Sherry and I plan to do the whole shootin' match from ChiTown to Santa Monica in Clarence, taking as much time as necessary to do/see it all in one fell swoop. I don't have photos of any of these three lodgings but if you have them please post up pix of your hot rod in front of the places you've stayed. I personally have stayed in three of the old motels/hotels on Route 66. In Missouri the Munger Moss in Lebanon and Boots Court in Carthage. In NM the La Fonda in Santa Fe. Munger Moss used to have carports between rooms but has filled them all in to make more sleeping rooms. They have updated most of their rooms to modern standards and they have added more buildings over the years to have more rooms. They do, however, have some original rooms and if you get reservations ahead of time you can probably get one of those. The proprietor showed us a couple of those and they were extremely cool. Their sign is a famous Route 66 landmark (Google "restored Munger Moss sign"). I don't remember if Munger Moss has a swimming pool. The Google Earth view doesn't show anything that might be a pool. Price is about the same or less than most new motels. Boots Court still has their carports between rooms. Boots Court is as original to 1939 when it was built as they can get/keep it. The original hardwood floors and original bathroom/shower ceramic tiles are still in place. Every room has an antique AM radio but no televisions. Their furniture is antique, although probably not the original furnishings. Boots has no pool. Their only concessions to modernity are A/C and Wi-Fi. Price is less than the average new motel. La Fonda is a VERY old hotel in downtown Santa Fe. It is very upscale in an old west sort of way. It's been 10 - 12 years since we stayed there so my memory is a bit fuzzy. I do, however, remember that the furniture was antique and our bathroom, including tub, shower, sink, and ceramic tiles was exquisite and most likely original to the building. This is where the well healed would have stayed back in the day. Shoot, it's where the well heeled stay today. It's very well kept and a really cool place to spend a night or two. I have no way of knowing if its been restored or kept original all these years. It's a spendy place to stay but your memories might be priceless.
