I ran across this great cache of motel postcards from the 80s and have to share them with you.
1984 – The Downtown Howard Johnson’s, New Orleans
The perfect place for planning your next witness protection placement, complete with FBI standard-issue raincoat.
Like a cheese grater, featuring 10 floors of hotel above 5 floors of parking.
1984 – Aztec Inn, Tucson, AZ
Comes complete with Ken and Barbie.
1984 – Palm Springs TraveLodge
We put the emphasis on “palm”, not so much on “lodge.”
1984 – Shamrock Motel, Spokane WA
Artist’s rendition. We’ll have the motel built by the time you get here.
Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas
There’s a mirage in the photo. Ha ha.
1985 – Westin La Paloma, Tucson, AZ
Where’s Waldo, Westin-style.
1984 – Ashland Hills Inn, OR
Don’t mind the trees. They got in the way of the shot of the parking lot.
Summit Inn, Washington
Internationally famous ski resort, like Chamonix and Banff.
