Words found in low-end motel names

Oh did you say that.:slight_smile:

My brain has been going foggy again.

I’d say “Airport” for this thread only if the hotel is not in fact located on the airport grounds. The ones actually at airports are usually at least bland-corporate nice (and cost like they’re a step nicer than they are, of course).

“Saddle”

As in the “Silver Saddle” in Springfield, MO.
