I have never stayed at this motel but was thrilled when I saw it featured in the movie Planes,Trains & Automobiles with John Candy & Steve Martin. This is the hotel that they go to when the car is almost completely demolished & Steve Martin tries to give the clerk a burned, curled up credit card. So anyways it looks like a hole in the wall but it's exciting to see a place that close to your home in a major movie.
