Several antique cars can be found in the parking lot and carports of the Route 66 Motel in Barstow. It was built in 1922. This motel is easy to spot with it's neon Route 66 shield.


The neon artwork over the lobby window is really neat. There's a long tradition of neon signs along the Mother Road and it's always nice to see cool examples.

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.
