725 W 3rd St., Winslow, AZ
The mid-1960's Astro Motel has a fairly unusual folded plate style roof
over the office and lobby area. The motel suffered a long delay during
construction and was sold tom Motel 6 about a year after opening. In 2015
the motel was operating as the Motel 10. Like so many other vintage motels
on the Mother Road the swimming pool has been removed. There is still
an Astro Motel in Pasadena
In kind of an interesting sidelight late in 1967 KINO Radio 1230 AM
was granted permission by the FCC to move their studio from the Town
House Motel to the Astro Motel. I have no idea how long they stayed
at that location, but they are still on the air.

Note: It's interesting that as the Astro Motel they don't mention
room phones. Neither does the Motel 6 postcard.
