Route 66 Information

From Chicago to Los Angeles runs one great Mother Road that is one of the pride and joys of the United States. The Historic Route 66 is more than just “the Main Street of America”, it is a journey in itself.

Route 66 was first built as a U.S. highway in 1926. The stretch of Route 66 where we are located starts in San Bernardino and ends in Rancho Cucamonga.

Neon signs, delicious diners, tourist attractions, endless gas stations and the best motels line this celebrated road. The road winds in and around many small cities and towns, including San Bernardino, where it will lead you directly to the Route 66 Wigwam Village CA.

You will find the Wigwam Motel on the border between Rialto and San Bernardino, on the right hand side of the road, at 2728 Foothill Blvd.

The San Bernardino Wigwam Motel is a popular Route 66 connections and a bona fide Route 66 landmark in the state of California. Nostalgic travelers intent on experiencing a taste of the classic American Experience will be thrilled to see our Wigwam Motel sign appearing from a distance during their Route 66 road trip.

So don’t forget to pull up and book your stay at one of our enormous 30-foot wigwams, complete with all the modern amenities inside. Our scenic and strategic location means that all the Route 66 points of interest and tourist attractions are just a short drive away, so you can explore the wonders of America’s Mother Road to your heart’s content.
