Roy’s Motel

 

There’s really not much going on at this roadside “cafe…” which as been closed since dog knows when. But it’s a very Instagrammable place…for those who are interested in that kind of thing!

2013-03-05_12-04-10_512The location of this jewel is on old Route 66, just south of Interstate 40 near the Amboy Rd. junction. There’s not much else around for miles. YAY! Although if you do head west about another hour, you’ll hit the Bagdad Cafe.

    Watch to original movie “The Hitcher” with Rutger Hauer. Roy’s is featured in movie. Amputated finger in the fries scene. Must see.

      OMG I’ve seen that movie, but didn’t realize it was shot there…..I *LOVE* Rutger Hauer; I even named my gun after him (Rutger Hauer, der Sig Sauer). I’ll have to check it out again!!

    Cool place. We pass this while taking the scenic and quiet way via Kelso on the way to Desert Hot Springs. Great views and better than taking I-15 from Vegas
