Rest Haven Motel

Route 66, Afton, OK

East < GO > West

This forlorn sign stands in front of the closed Rest Haven Motel on Route 66 in Afton, OK. Most of the neon tubing is long gone, but it sure would be neat to see the sign restored and lit up again. The earliest date I've seen for the Rest Haven Motel is 1959, but I did find one reference to the Rest Haven Cabins from 1942 and another from 1949.

x The street side windows were boarded up on the house in front when we went by in 2013. When this photo was snapped the motel building out back looked like it might have been in use for some probably private purpose though. Since then the motel has apparently become a private residence but the sign still lingers.

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.
