Kingman AZ

November 2012 - Kingman AZ

We had visited Kingman back in 2004.

Kingman, the Heart of Historic Route 66 is one of the hidden treasures of Arizona, conveniently located on Interstate 40.

Built in 1954, the Hill Top occupies a high perch away from the rumble of trains. Rooms are clean with retro style, but modern amenities include free Wi-Fi and satellite TV. In 2013, the motel received a Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program grant from the National Park Service to finance continued upgrades.

  Once the jewel of Kingman, the Hotel Beale catered to the passengers of the Santa Fe RR and travelers on Route 66. Located across Andy Devine Ave. from the old Santa Fe Depot in the historic Kingman downtown, it has fallen on hard times of late.


  1. Ramblin' Rose... what a perfect name!

  2. Here you go teasing me with all your Route 66 stuff. GREAT. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  3. Love every one of these...great photos.

  4. I am thoroughly enjoying your travels down Route 66. You have another great collections of signs. I'm partial to Mr. D'z and think Ramblin' Rose is perfect for your posts. Thank you so much for linking up!

  5. Such a perfect theme for Rubbish Tuesday, although most of the signs seem to be in really great shape and well maintained...but OLD does count. Love the Ramblin' Rose sign and Mr. D'z sure brings back memories of 'CarHop' Days. Visiting from Rubbish Tuesday #14.
