Cuter still, cruise south down Atlantic and look left to spy this gem at 438 El Mercado Avenue, tucked amidst much new development but still just as cute as the day it was hatched.

Hey Esotouric, and welcome to the forum! I have some swell shots (on another computer) and postcards of these motels, I'll have to see if I can dig them up, I agree they're my favorites in town...
