xIn a 1959 ad in the AAA TourBook the Hi-Way Host invited guests to "Spend a "never-to-be-forgotten vacation" at Beautiful Hi-Way Host Motel". The 1957 Hi-way Host Motel had 40 rooms, a play ground for kids and a heated swimming pool. Most of the rooms are on the ground floor, but some are on the second floor. Some of the rooms had kitchenettes.

Kitchenette style motel rooms were popular with families traveling on a budget.

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.
