I enjoyed staying there a few times when Steve Lowe owned it. It was a much different experience, funky but sincere without a hint of pretense. The current owners have gone in a different direction.

"This is the only Lautner residence open to the booking public." They're just determined to play this as a "residence" rather than what it is: a renowned motel. Nowhere in the copy is that word used, while the impression of a Lautner-designed house is repeated . . .

It looks like Home Depot and Ikea descended on the place. The charm of the original set was its simplicity and rough character. I doubt Lautner would be charmed by this overhaul.
