Motel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (528 words)
The motel began in the 1920s as mom-and-pop motor courts on the outskirts of a town.
Motels differed from hotels in their emphasis on largely anonymous interactions between owners and occupants, their location along highways (as opposed to urban cores), and their orientation to the outside (in contrast to hotels whose doors typically face an interior hallway).
Motels with low rates sometimes serve as housing for people who are not able to afford an apartment.
Coral Court Motel: The No-Tell Motel with a Touch of Class (2829 words)
Motel enthusiasts refer to this bungalow style as the “Mae West” unit because of the curvy, rounded bays.
Although the motel was roped off and patrolled regularly by the police, it did not prevent “souvenirs-seekers” and vandals from breaking into the rooms.
The motel was actively on the market for nearly 3 years but nobody was able to afford the $1.5 million pricetag plus the extra $1 million estimated for renovation.
