Roadside Art Online: Motels

Taking the postcard view inside the motel often provides an image as stark as what's shown outside. But there are exceptions. Cook's Cottages are lush on the outside, and the Cabana Motel's rooms are lavishly accessorized, relatively speaking. But then again, barren vistas hardly seem to be an issue for proprietors, as in the case of the Frandy, or the Colonial, viewed earlier.
