There's a small hotel...

Driving east, into Tyler on Highway 64 (TX-64), I came across these two motor court style motels. Both appear to be in pretty fair condition. The Airways Motel looked like it may have closed recently, as it seemed to be in really good shape. The Siesta Motel appeared to either have permanent residents, or the individual units are being used like self-storage garages. It would be great to refurbish places like these, restoring them to their original, opening day state. The wonderful Tee Pee Motel in Wharton sat, empty and abandoned, for years before someone bought it, restored each tee pee, one at a time, and reopened it for bidness. Anyway, here are pictures of the Airways and Siesta Motels:
