Munger Moss Motel in Lebanon, Missouri

The Munger Moss Motel in Lebanon, Missouri was built in 1946 and you can still stay at this classic Route 66 motel on your Route 66 road trip. The site originally operated as a filling station and restaurant (Munger-Moss Sandwich Shop) and the motel was added on after the business relocated, though it is the only part of the business that has survived today.

The star attraction at the roadside motel is the giant neon Munger Moss Motel sign. The iconic shape is mimicked throughout Route 66 (like at the Missouri Route 66 Welcome Center in Conway) and is highly recognized icon of the Mother Road. In 2010, the neon sign was restored using a $10,300 National Park Service matching grant as part of the US Route 66 historic corridor preservation efforts.

Bob and Ramona Lehman have owned the Munger Moss Motel since 1971 and have been offering a “home away from home” for Route 66 travelers for decades. Amenities include cable TV, free WiFi, ice, free coffee, a large shaded patio, and a CCTV security system.
