We believe traveling is about the journey – taking a road less traveled, meeting lifelong friends, discovering places you’ll never forget, and making some of your best memories ever.
Your time at historic Rockwood Motor Court will be a special part of your journey as you meet and share stories with other guests and sleep in the same rooms where Route 66 travelers have stayed since 1929.
Newly renovated in 2019, you’ll enjoy clean and comfortable room amenities (with Wifi and Blue Tooth) while experiencing authentic motor court lodging. Each room is themed to an era of Route 66 with vintage décor, furniture, and memorabilia. Browse through our website and choose the room that’s just right for you!
The floorplans below are overall examples and are not to scale.
There are several outdoor spaces on the property where you can relax, spend time with family and friends, visit with other guests, read a book, or do absolutely nothing – encouraged and allowed.
The covered patio on the back of the house is a comfortable area with tables and chairs to sit and unwind, play games, have a cold drink or meal, and plan or replay your travels. A bbq grill, fire pit, and lawn chairs are in the area adjacent to the patio. Charcoal and firewood are available for guests’ use.
The yard by the old garage, with dozens of Route 66 vintage license plates on it, is a great place to take photos or sit and relax. Great conversations and new friendships happen here.
For a quiet spot, settle into an Adirondack chair by the big fountain in the cubby courtyard, listen to the splashing water fall and watch life go by or plan tomorrow’s drive.
Whatever space you choose, our goal is for you to relax, unplug, and enjoy our simple way of life at the Rockwood.
