The 1954 former Sand-N-Sage Motel had 19 units. Some of those had carports
which have since been closed in, probably to create more guest rooms.
A really unusual feature for a small motel was the indoor heated swimming
pool. More recently 1990 to 2011 or so it was the Economy Inn, By 2012
it was the Cornerstone Apartments, but even that was fenced off when this
photo was taken in the spring of 2015. The motel had direct access from
both westbound 2nd St. and eastbound 3rd St. The motel had a large sign
where the small sign is in this photo
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
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.
