Thank you! Great to hear. I'm glad you like the updates. :-)

Hi Doug, My name is Stephanie. My husband and I purchased this motel in 2012. In 1982, it was owned by my husband's grandmother. I believe, when it was under her ownership, it was called the Gorgeous View Motel. When she passed in 2003, it was leased by the property across the highway from us -- the Glen Motor Inn. They placed people in our rooms when their property filled. This was the arrangement for about 10 years. I wonder if you stayed at the Glen Motor Inn, maybe? Kindly, Stephanie
