Munger Moss Motel

Lebanon, Missouri

From the Munger Moss official website:

The Munger Moss Motel is a vintage auto court that harks back to the hey-day of Route 66! It is Route 66 lodging at its finest. It has been the “home away from home” for generations of travelers on old Route 66, and is still serving the modern highway traveler with all the amenities one would expect from a first class lodging establishment. Clean, modern rooms await you at the Munger Moss Motel. Yet the Munger Moss has all the charm of yesteryear—those days before the interstates cut off small-town America and the unique “mom and pop” businesses that lined America's two-lane highways. Why stay anywhere else when you can relive those simpler times in modern comfort at the historic Munger Moss Motel?

The Munger Moss is indeed the place to stay in Lebanon, and it's an experience no 66 traveler should miss.

Originally, Munger Moss (a combination of two family surnames) referred to a sandwich shop in the village of Devil's Elbow, Missouri to the east. (That building is today occupied by the Elbow Inn.) Anyway, when the war years came that particular loop of Route 66 was bypassed in favor of a less circuitous path, and that wasn't good for business. So, the owners re-located to Lebanon, re-opened their sandwich shop, and eventually added a motel at the present location.
