Long Description:
The Saga Motor Hotel was built in the 50's before the term 'motel' was thought of, and the road it stood alongside was named 'U.S. 66'.
The hotel has been a setting for film crews, including an episode of “CSI” and a variety of commercials.

"The Saga Motor Hotel, the rambling terra cotta-colored motel on Colorado Boulevard, a.k.a Route 66, is the quintessential “Welcome to California” to those arriving from other states or countries.
The timeless motel, surrounded by lush, tropical landscaping, is an original along Route 66. The Rose Parade passes by the motel." Text source: (visit link)
