Motel Motel

The last time I was here was years ago. Back then, I didn't find a POE, but I looked through the windows and it was like a time machine--it seemed like everyone had just walked away some time in the seventies and nothing had changed since. Sadly, since that visit, vandals and the elements have pretty much trashed the place, but here's a few shots of what it looks like now.

1.


2.
Main office. I used to think that this was also the lounge/bar/restaurant for the motel, but now that I've been inside, I'm pretty sure it was a combination of office and living quarters for the owners/caretakers.

4. 'Tis the season.


5.


6.


7.
What the well-stocked pantry should include.


8.
Most of the motel rooms were locked up. This was one of the few that wasn't.


9.


Thanks for looking!

Great shots. It's a shame to see a nice mid-century modern place go to waste.

I would love to get my hands on that sign!

Don't even get me started on old rusty neon signs. Seriously, one of my main obsessions. And thanks!

Christmas decorations are a staple of plenty of abandonments, haha.

That floor has fallen quite far down eh? Poor building. Too bad you didn't get in earlier!
