  • We made a point of driving out here while staying in the Palm Springs area this month. We wanted to see Roy's on Route 66. The owner has made a good effort at getting the place into meaningful...  more »

  • I pass through here every couple of years, and each time the place looks a little different. The old "cabins" always look like maybe they might be ready for folks to stay, but they never are. It...  more »

  • OK, so, first you must accept that this place is in the middle of nowhere. Seriously, the desolation is profound and beautiful. That said, it is more like a convenience store than a cafe. But it is on old Route 66, the staff is really great (the 20-something clerk is a straight-up comedian), and it is definitely worth the experience.
  • Been there today, asking for the way to Las Vegas. Took a coffee and some ice cream. And the very best, had a nice talk with the Lady there and got a lot of background info about this place. Absolute friendly!!! When you’re around, don‘t miss to visit Roy‘s! Best regards, the German guy.
  • Great place to stop on route 66, just have snacks and beverages. Enjoy the history of the place. Restrooms around back. Remember it's a ghost town so be respectful to property and folks that still live there.
  • Details on this place: It's no longer a motel or cafe. It is a gas station with a small convenience-style store. They have snacks, bottled drinks and souvenirs. Cash is preferred here. Credit card transactions require a minimum $10 purchase. Retro restrooms are out back. Cool place to stop and explore. Some of the older motels rooms are explorable but be careful. If you stop in the middle of the night and desperately need $5/gallon gas after they close, there is a phone number on the door reading "Night Gas." Remember, it's in the middle of the desert...it's fun, it's nifty but it's not your typical gas station.
  • What a cool stop along route 66. Gas is available, but at a premium price, so fuel up well before here if you can. Free public restrooms. Great photo opportunity!
