General Information:

This motel had 12 units and 10 cottage rentals. A 3-bedroom home was also on premises for the owners. It probably goes back to the 1960's and was operated by Bernie and Addie Sailler in the early days. It was up for sale in 1975.

The postcard indicates visitors should use the Jamet St exit to Nicolet St to get to the motel. Looking at that area as of 2023, I don't believe the place is still standing. There was an ad from 1984 indicating that all of the contents of the motel were for sale right down to the doors and sinks. That probably means it was being gutted or razed.

Update 1-1-24: My previous analysis on the location of this motel was pretty close. I traced the phone number on the postcard to Motel 6 which eventually became what is now Rodeway Inn. That's odd because even though the lot is the same, the building was replaced. What sits on the site as of 2023 is not the Big Mac pictured on the postcard. However, looking at the historical aerial photo reveals the Big Mac was at this address. It was razed by 1987.
