The Plaza Inn is gone, but the building remains. It is now known as the Mosley Motel and the sign says it was established in 1942. It also has a gate, which you rarely ever see in a motel. Must be some shady pool hoppers (worst or best band name ever?). No evidence of the Howard Johnson's surviving. Sad.

  1. It is good that they have managed to preserve this old photo of the Plaza Inn Motel at its peak. It would have been great if Howard Johnson's Restaurant is still there.
