Here’s a motel that didn’t make it to the 21st century. It used to be on South Congress near St. Elmo Rd. Thus, the punny name.

I took this photo in 2006. They bulldozed the site shortly after that with a plan to build condos. Those plans died with the recession. Now all that’s left on the site is the sign. I keep hoping someone will save it.

Seeing my little Mazda Miata makes me suddenly nostalgic even though I totally bonded with the Mini Cooper S during the June road trip.
