Gratuitous Postcard: El Motel is open for guests

Postcard: El Motel

According to the text on the back of the card, El Motel was "The finest on the Border", featuring a
Telephone in Every Room – Individual Refrigerated Air-Conditioning – TWO Swimming Pools, adult and children – Large Beautifully Decorated Soundproof Rooms – Free Ice Cubes.
It was located
On Highway 81
"The Gateway to Old Mexico"
Laredo Texas

and approved by Triple A.

How could anyone resist?

With a salute to James Lileks, who features other vintage postcards of motels at his website. Although none, I think, are as cool as El Motel.
