Carolyn’s note: My husband and I stayed there recently for a night at this newly renovated hotel, west of the I-10 on Silverlake. It’s a very retro style one-story hotel, with wooden beam ceilings, upgraded bathrooms and hotel rooms, funky accessories (like red refrigerators and stylish lamps). There a cute pool area (called the Oasis), with a small lawn, dripping water feature fountain, plants, and lots of games to play: ping pong, foosball, bean bag toss, board games, etc. for the entire family. This one year anniversary sounds like an art blast for all. Muralist Joe Pagac’s art is already on some of the outside walls, with poetry and heartfelt messages. And check out the black walls with illuminated lights & gold stars in a passageway, in the middle of the hotel rooms.
