Beauty Rest Motor Court

From the back:  On beautiful Lake Cherokee.  Two places to eat and sleep, here and home.  One of Tennessee's Best.  9 miles west of Rogersville, Tenn. on U. S. 1-W.  79 miles to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  21 units built of beautiful everlasting Permastone.  Fireproof.  Air cooled.  Electrically Heated.  Tile baths.  Radio in every room.

An especially interesting linen card, because it shows the staff and some sullen customers, before their Beauty Rest.  Note the postcard display and the appealing design in the floor tiles.  Also, I'm not sure about the "everlasting Permastone," as I could not locate this place using Google Earth!

Shamrock Hotel

Your guess is as good as mine as to why this is called the "Shamrock" Hotel, but I figured it was a good choice for St. Patrick's Day!  Despite the absence of leprechauns and a plate of  corned beef and cabbage, this is a great linen card with a really cool pool and diving platform!

The Diplomat Motor Hotel

Located in the heart of the Nation's capital, The Diplomat has 200 luxury rooms and suites, an Olympic swimming pool, a cocktail lounge, ample parking and complete air conditioning.  It is only minutes away from train, bus and airport terminals, the Capitol, the Washington Monument, Jefferson's Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and Immaculate Conception Shrine.

Love the "Flags of Many Nations" on the wall in the lobby.  Click on the postcard to see an enlarged view.
