Delta Motel

2141 West 3rd Street, Winslow, AZ 86047

East < GO > West

This little motel is located on the old road on the far west end of Winslow. The Delta Motel has 13 rooms that the new owners have renovated. The original alignment is a block behind the motel and the later alignments are all in front of the motel. The motel has been modified a bit over the years. Somewhere along the line the office was extended farther out into the drive area by adding the samll section on the right in this photo (under the small dip in the roof). As of 2015 the motel was still open. There used to be a pay-phone booth (remember those?) next to the street side post of the tall Motel sign.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
