Lolita was on last night and as they were bouncing from one motel to another – I saw the Tee Pee Motel. I’ve always wanted to stay in a tee pee. I think it’s what happens when you watch Dances with Wolves 1,000 times.The Tee Pee Motel in Texas was built in 1942 then abandoned for over 15 years in the 80’s because the new interstate highway system routed people away from the area. Whoa creepy tee pee. In 2004 a couple that won the lotto bought the motel and reopened two years later. I’d probably do the same thing BUT I think I like the look of the overgrown sorta tee pee’s.
You can see the new motel here.
There is a whole world of tee pee spots to stay at though. Thank You, Google. I get pretty creeped out in hotels, motels…or Holiday Inn’s.
