The Wigwam Motel has become an icon of the historic Route 66, also referred to as the Mother Road because of its unique concept. The Motel was the 7th and last Wigwam Motel to have been built by Frank Redford. Only three of the 7 Wigwam Motels built exist, the others were demolished. The Motel was built in 1949 and is located in Rialto, California. It originally featured 12 impressive teepee shaped buildings, including the office. Eight more teepees, and a barbquer along with a kidney shaped swimming pool were later added a few years after it opened because of its major success and popularity among route 66 travelers. The California Wigwam Motel was the only one to present a swimming pool and enhances our customers stay. The Motel has recently gone through a total makeover, including improvements to both the buildings interior and exterior as well as to the Motels landscape.
