LaSiesta Motel

911 E 2nd St., Winslow, AZ

East < GO > West

The 1946 La Siesta Motel #2 has been converted to apartments. There were two LaSiesta Motels, hence the #2 designation. This motel uses an unusual layout, sort of a reverse of the common "U" shape layout. Here the some of the rooms are out by the road and the courtyard and some parking area is in back. It seems like the moel was been converted to apartments in the early 1980s.

Note: Reading the first postcard highlights it's apparent the owners wanted to make sure their guests were aware of all the tourist opportunities in the area. The 1960 card gives much less information about the local attractions. It also list 7 less rooms, that's a fairly big change.

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.
