The Hotel Beale is located on East Andy Devine Avenue in Kingman, Arizona, along Historic Route 66. The building was constructed in 1903 by Harvey Hubbs to help service to passengers of the Santa Fe Railway Station which sits across the street. In 1906 Hubbs sold the hotel to Tom and Amy Devine, the parents of future character actor Andy Devine. Andy was one year old when the family moved from his birthplace in Flagstaff, to nearby Kingman and he grew up in and around the hotel before making his way to Hollywood. Over the years the hotel had several upgrades, including plumbing and electricity in 1913. By the time the Devines sold the establishment in 1926 it was a focal point for the Kingman community. Charles Lindbergh is said to have spent time in the hotel in 1929. By the 1960's, when Interstate 40 bypassed Route 66, it effectively killed the tourist trade and the hotel was forced to shut down. Several attempts have been made to resurrect the building over the years, but as of now, Kingman's grandest hotel still stands empty and derelict. The section of Route 66 which runs through Kingman has been named Andy Devine Avenue in honor of the town's famous son.
