Location #9

The Economy Inn at 2218 Spring St.. Just prior to it's current name, in 2002 it was called the Stardust Motel. In 1955 this was known as Appleton's Motel, and before 1945 it was called Autel COE. I think autel was one of those words that never caught on like motel eventually did.

View looking north from the east side of Spring St.

View of the office facing south.
I wonder if the sign post footing wall was cracked in the San Simeon quake.
The units on the north side of the property.
These cabin style units were probably the original design and are in the back of the motel on the other side of a small alley.
