Midwest Living Review
This Route 66 motel was a favorite stop along the historic driving tour in the 1960s. Begun as eight sandstone cottages in 1938, the motel was transformed into the Rail Haven in 1965. Historic Route 66 photos in the lobby and guest rooms recall the nostalgia of this area, as do the antique cars and gas pumps in the parking lot. Rooms have been modernized in the past 50 years -- amenities include free Wi-Fi, cable TV and complimentary hot breakfast -- but there's no mistaking the age of the hotel. The decor is simple; rooms are on the small side; and furniture looks dated. But that's part of the charm, especially for those interested in historic travel or Route 66 in particular. It's easy to imagine yourself visiting during the peak of the American road trip along the Mother Road. From $50 for a double room.
