The motel as it looks today

Created in 1925 by Pasedena-based architect and developer Arthur Heineman, the 
Motel Inn of San Luis Obispo (originally known as the Milestone Mo-Tel) is located
in San Luis Obispo, California. It had little garages right next to several dozen
bungalows that rented for $1.25 a night.
