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.
