Cozy Cone Motel

The Cozy Cone Motel is a motel lot that Sally bought and restored after arriving in Radiator Springs. The motel cone structures were based on the teepee-inspired buildings of the Wig Wam Hotel in San Bernardino California, which was also a popular stop on U.S. Route 66Lightning McQueen stays in the motel. It is shown in the films Cars and Cars 2, along with in some of the Cars Toons episodes.

In Cars Land, the Cozy Cone Motel will serve "cone"-themed foods, like pop-cone, ice cream cones, cone on the cob, cone dogs, etc.


  • The Cozy Cone Motel's design is based on the two Wigwam Motels along Route 66, in Holbrook, Arizona and Rialto, California. These were once two out of seven built motels, with individual cabins shaped like teepees. Three Wigwam Motels remain; the third (and oldest) is in Cave City, Kentucky, far from Route 66. The recently restored Tee Pee Motel in Wharton, Texas, south of Houston, is of similar design but unrelated. The name "Cozy Cone" was inspired by the Cozy Dog Drive-In of Springfield, Illinois, which lays claim to being birthplace of the corn dog.
