SecretAgentWoman: I thought Barstow was only a rest stop on the way to Las Vegas?

haemaker: Angela Lansbury's Merkin: Wonder what's up with the cars in this photo? Classic car show and they all decided to stay at the same crappy motel?[img.fark.net image 680x602]This is actually a vintage photo. Barstow got Wi-Fi and HBO 40 years before anyone else.
Bathia_Mapes: My childhood summer vacation trips usually involved motels that offered kitchenettes so we could cook our own dinner instead of going to a restaurant.One of the more memorable stays was when we were on a trip to Victoria, BC. We stopped in Stevenson, Washington to pick up Aunt Bertha and stopped that evening at a place that offered individual cabins (with kitchenettes, obviously) instead of standard motel rooms. I got up before anyone else the next morning and spotted at least 4 deer grazing barely 3 feet from the bedroom window.
Omahawg: there's only one proper place to stay in all of Omaha
RoyBatty: Heh, I'm heading there tonight. And with a girl I met online!
HotWingAgenda: Someone took a bunch of photos of Holiday Inns?
gunther_bumpass: I missed the memo where the meaning of "poignant" was changed to "barely competent and artlessly shot".
Killer Cars: That said, I've been to Barstow, and yeah, it's depressing. Needles, CA too.
Ex-Texan: If you're looking for venues like that, we have plenty of places here in Albuquerque, along Central (Rt 66), that are dilapidated, sad, and boarded up. But it's in a part of town, not many go to (willingly, at least). Cheap hotels, a habitat for druggies, hookers, and the down and out crowd, on the news. I know it's not "that bad", but we don't like driving by that area.I can supply lots of pics, but not of a better time for these places. It's my opinion, many of these places, despite stories of trying to "save" these places, it's better to raze them The world has moved on. Drug users and hookers don't need cover.
Glendale: Do you like clowns? Do you like motels?Bonus: There's pictures of clowns in the rooms to watch you sleep.Double Bonus: The cemetery next door.
