I don't wish to be in a commercialized atmosphere or a bed and breakfast. Perhaps something on Route 66. Can anybody help me with ideas? The birthday is in March. Thank you

: As far as I know, there is one hotel in Oatman, and it is a tourist attraction(Clark Gable is supposed to have stayed there on his weding night). I quite sure that rooms are only for show and not for rent.

: If you want to stay with Route 66 try contacting the Chamber of Commerce in Williams AZ. A fellow in Williams publishes a bi-monthly magazine dedicated to Route 66 lore, and I'm certain he could tell you about hotels and such along what remains of Route 66. In most "Ghost Towns", the best you're going to find is a "Bed & Breakfast" type lodging arrangement, however there are a number of interesting hotels left Arizona that
: may fill your overall needs such as the St. Michaels Hotel in Prescott AZ.
