Owner description: Noted for being the world's first motel, not open to the public but can be viewed when visiting the Apple Farm Inn.
Reviewed 2 June 2011

I think what you are referring to is actually the Motel Inn. Yes, it was the first Motel, unfortunatly went out of business many years ago. What little remains is only there because it was designated a historical site. If you go to John Ramos Gallery on the web you can see his rendition of what it looked like "way back when". My husband and I have great memories of the Motel Inn it was the place to be and be seen back in the day!

Drive by and take a peek but the best view is probably on John Ramos web site.
