Motel California: The History of the Motel in California

Saturday, July 21, 2018

"Motel California" by Heather M. David is a celebration of sparkling blue pools, flashing neon signs, automatic ice machines and bleached white towels. It is the story of the rapid rise of and subsequent decline of the individually owned mom-and-pop motel in the Golden State. It is the exploration of theme-based marketing and a documentation of American culture at perhaps what will be the most prosperous time in United States history.
