Wigwam Motel, USA

The Wigwam Motel is a legendary pit-stop on America’s Route 66. So much so, that it inspired Disney Pixar to feature it’s own ‘Cozy Cone Motel’ in the movieĀ ‘Cars‘.

Built within the city limits of San Bernardino in 1949, the motel’s 19 wigwams make up their own mini village which welcome weary road trippers looking for somewhere a little different to rest up.

Those of you who prefer your creature comforts to an authentic tribal experience needn’t worry, the only place you’ll be hunting for food here is at the nearby supermarket! You can even forget about gathering firewood, as each Wigwam comes complete with its own convenient barbecue!
