This motel began life as Burk's, it didn't include the "lodge part" that it does now. It is operating as Big Bear Lodge as of 2022 and the place looks great. Reviews are very good too. Interestingly, there was an old motel across the street that had a very similar design (the brick planters and such) that I have not yet identified. Maybe they expanded to that lot years ago?
This motel was also known as the Van-D in the past. See the postcard below with the same address.
