East < GO > West

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.

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.
