Established in 1950 after founder Chester Lewis spotted a similar complex in Kentucky, the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook, Arizona, is one of the few of its kind still operating today.

The wigwams are made out of wood, chicken wire, and stucco, and on the inside they resemble a typical room at a mom-and-pop motel.
