    This 1950 motel is associated with the expansion of tourist accommodations in Colorado Springs in the early post World War II period, capitalizing on the attractiveness of the area to motoring vacationers. A U-shaped building focused on a central courtyard, the motel provides several inset carports without doors, enabling covered parking for guests. The rounded corners and glass block panels add to the Modern style of the building. This building displays good historic physical integrity. National Register eligible.
