Retro Roadtrip: El Rancho Motel, Gallup, NM


Maryanne contributes this classic and unforgettable spot to our list of retro roadtrips: The El Rancho Motel in Gallup, New Mexico. I can second that emotion, because I’ve also stayed there twice, although nearly 20 years ago. It was incredible – all the rooms are named after cinema cowboys… the lobby is wonderful beyond belief… and tell me, are the enchiladas still as good? Thanks, Maryanne!

    I love this place! I have stayed here twice. We used to take some trips along route 66 to visit my great grandma in Oklahoma. Very good memories!
