This I find odd: Don't the owners know the history of the building---that it was built and operated as a motel ?
The motel rooms are designed with full kitchens much like studio apartments, but that may have been out of necessity given the very rural nature of the site in the immediate post war...dining options were limited, and the clientele, by some accounts, were looking for privacy. To my understanding, the building always functioned as transient lodging.
