Rail Haven Motel (also known as Rail Haven Motor Court) was built in 1938 and for many years was a true Route 66 institution that attracted Route 66 travelers and celebrities alike. Their biggest claim to fame is that Elvis Presley once spent the night in room 409. Today the hotel is operated under the Best Western brand but maintains all of the nostalgic charm you’d hope for in a Route 66 hotel. In fact, in 2010, this hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

All of the 93 rooms at the Rail Haven evoke a sense of the past through artwork and memorabilia. But a couple of rooms go the extra mile. Stay in a western themed room, the Marilyn Monroe Suite, or, my favorite, the Elvis Suite.

The Rail Haven Elvis Suite pays homage to the room the singer once slept in through decor, artwork, and a Pink Cadillac shaped bed.
