FLAMINGO HOTEL, Elk City OK

 

 

 

 

That's just a lot of sign. One strong wind, and say goodbye to the lobby.

The pool's filled up. If there's any metaphor for the fate of the old motel, there you have it. The metal umbrellas junked or sold; the water drained; the pool filled with dirt and gravel and paved over.

The restaurant now appears to be a Mexican joint, and I guarantee you the decor has changed as well.
