About Us

Out with the old, in with the new! We are now open featuring newly re-decorated theme rooms. Since Kingman, AZ was home to Andy Devine whose namesake El Trovatore is located on, Andy Devine Avenue (Route 66) and such notable icons as Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe as well as James Dean were all guests here in the past. Staying with us gives the guest the ultimate route 66 experience, including the recently restored historic 100 foot high neon tower sign and neon marqee lit nightly.

Rooms are spacious king or double queen size pillowtop beds. We kept the original architecural charm (art deco style) but added the convienance of microwave, fridge, HVAC, some kitchenettes, Wi-Fi, HBO, laundry and free local calls. We are pet, R.V., trucker and motorcycle friendly. Groups are welcomed.

The El Trovatore motel is one of the few pre-World War II tourist courts left in Kingman. The business started in 1937 as a service station, with the tourist court added later in 1939, at which time it was $3 per night and was the first motel air-conditioned in the state. It was first owned by John F. Miller who also was the builder/owner of the first hotel in Las Vegas, The Sal Sagev (Las Vegas spelt backwards), which was built in 1906 and is now known as the Golden Gate Hotel.
