I Would Stay There…The Amigo Motor Lodge.

July 6, 2017

the typical motor lodge holds a special place in my heart. i remember family road trips as a child, driving until we were all too tired to possibly go another mile and waiting for that magical vacancy sign to appear out of nowhere. i remember waiting in the car while my dad ran into the lobby, returning with a key attached to a plastic key ring and pulling right up to the door of the spot we would call home for the night. i also remember the mister and i taking backroads (about a million and a half years ago), with marcy playground blaring over the jeep speakers, looking for that same vacancy. motor lodges are all the right kind of americana and i couldn’t be happier that folks like philip and kaitlyn must have the same type of soft spot for them that i do. this couple is responsible for my latest favorite amongst favorites the amigo motor lodge out of salida, co.

back in the day, i had no idea this whole motor lodge thing would become stylish and that the resurgence of the midcentury motel could result in something so beautiful….

i am sensing a road trip coming on…
