Here's the back of said business card:
I have a feeling the place could be a pretty creepy spot anyway. It has a very Batman-villain feel to it. This is only enhanced by the fact that by the time we drove by it yesterday, it had fallen to this state:
I don't really know why part of it is taped off...
...and part of it isn't...
...but the fact that it was apparently abandoned recently enough that when I got out to take a few pictures, I could still hear a smoke detector calling for a new battery, added a little touch of the macabre somehow.
Is it standard procedure to just leave most of the doors open when you have a motel sitting around hoping to be sold?
Oh, and here's a great place to stuff some bodies:
Thankfully, Laura picked up enough of a haunted house vibe that she wanted to stop off for some pictures. There was also an abandoned Teddy Bear Restaurant right next to it. I kind of regret not getting any shots of that...
I need to stop here the next time I'm down south.ReplyDelete
There's a lot of stuff around there to make the destination worthwhile. (The Smokies are awesome except for the severe restrictions on canines in the national park.) And in thinking about your Port's Maw setting, I may or may not have imagined goblins operating moonshine stills around there...Delete
My step-sister lives about 2 hours from there in Maryville TN. Maybe if I go down for a visit, I can break away a day and check it out.Delete
Well...then you owe it to yourself!Delete
Good grief, that's almost as creepy as the Clown Motel!ReplyDelete
You just know some bad stuff went down there (possibly involving homicidal furries).
Homicidal furries...I think I need to edit my random encounter table...Delete
Oh, and I just looked up the Clown Motel...wow...!Delete
At least there's no "Mime Motel"Delete
Maybe there is one, but the walls are just invisible. Ba dump bump.Delete
