They Aren't Making Motels

Observations from the road

#2 - We noted as we traveled that they just aren't making the old single-floor drive-up-to-your-room motels anymore. They're building hotels.

Milady mentioned this to the desk clerk tonight, and he confirmed, "They're just not as safe" as hotels where you have to walk in through the lobby.

Did not discuss the meaning or context of "safe," but I think we can count it as another example of cultural deterioration.
