Photo Diary: Roy’s Motel & Cafe
In the ghost town of Amboy, this beautifully kept landmark was for decades a popular watering hole for Route 66 travelers. If you believe the lore, Roy once cooked his famous Route 66 double cheeseburger on the hood of a '63 Mercury. Although the motel is abandoned, the gas station and store are still open today.
The long drives along desert roads can get a little monotonous, but every now and then the dusty asphalt highway serves up a heavy dose of nostalgia for the classic American road trip. We pulled up to Roy's Motel & Cafe where the charm of yesteryear still lingers.
