500 E. Second St., Winslow, AZ
The Westerner Motel at 500 E. Second St. (eastbound Route 66) occupies
the whole end of the block and has an entrance from 3rd Street (westbound
Route 66) . It is one of several mid-century style motels still standing
in Winslow. It seems that as of 2015 only 12 of it's 32 rooms were open,
and those were rented out on a long term residential apartment basis.
Like many of the old motels the swimming pool has been filled with dirt.
The two story building facing 3rd Street contains 19 or 20 of the motels
32 rooms and was apparently built much later than the one-story building
facing 2nd St. on the 3rd St. . The pool is on the 3rd street side of
the property. The 2012 Historic Resource Survey of Route 66 in Arizona
list approximate construction dates of 1948 and 1952, that seems to
fit with the different stylys of the 2nd and 3rd Street buildings.
