Restored Thunderbird Inn in Savannah!

Check out the link to this newly restored Thunderbird Inn in beautiful Savannah! It's great to see a restoration like this and an appreciation for this era! Are we finally starting to turn a corner for the better as far as mid century appreciation is concerned?

I sure hope this place gets lot's of business, as their hard work and appreciation for the American roadside should be rewarded! I know where I am going to stay when I visit Savannah!!

in Savannah!?
way to go.
nice to see it catching on. Austin, Tx has been at it for a while.
i see it happening everywhere. the properties are offered very cheap.
(unless the land it sits on is valuable).
we always seek them out when we road trip.
i should give Miami credit also. they seem to be hanging on to a few.
though i've been fooled by a few. the mom and pop motels are fun. and clean.
but we did sleep on the floor once. eeeww. floor was cleaner than the bed.
the furniture was great and worth it for the photos i took.
a friend of a friend bought a motel in the catskills as a summer get-a-way.
keep the no-vacancy sign lit. tricked out the rooms with their collection.(cheaper than storage?) and have a funny place for friends and family to gather... expanded the owners
quarters by grabbing a couple rooms. even put in those tiny all-in-one stainless kitchen units in a couple rooms
for privacy and morning coffee, etc. (i think they have a little extra cash)
haven't seen it but it must be kinda great if they turned down our vintage airstream to go back to their
friends 'motel'.

Yeah, Fremont Street would be perfect with all the old motels and great signs!
