Cheesy 1980s Motel Postcards

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.
