General Information:

At first I thought the name of this motel was misspelled on the post card but other documents revealed the spelling was correct. This place seems to be long gone but I believe I have located it on the historical aerial photographs. It started out in 1949 as 6 cabins, then that was increased to 10. Robert Hornack was the owner. In 1956, the cabins were razed and a more traditional motel structure was built with 18 units. It had a nice neon sign with a star motif.

The structure remained on the site into the 2000's, but was gone by 2009. I am not sure how long it stayed open prior to that. The lot is empty today so I picked an address that roughly corresponds to where the place stood for reference. There is a street called Lake Terrace which is about where the location of the former drive-way and parking lot were.
