Complete with an old car. That's a long time to be in business. Nice sharp shot.

They've done a good job of maintaining the spirit of the place, down to the vintage car. I bet the prices are higher now...

A reminder of a different era. Wonder if they have a web site. V

refrigerated air sounds cool...makes you opted for a pano in response to the simple, linear design...

I wonder if the car is a permanent feature ?? Nice to see an old fashioned motel still operating !! V
