TRAVELODGE MOTEL, Erie PA

 

 

 

 

Look for the sign of the sleepwalking bear to ensure your night of restful slumber, and -

Why would anyone want to stay at a place with sleepwalking bears? Because of the kids. I had no idea:

Targeting families with children, it is best known for its mascot Sleepy Bear, a half awake teddy bear wearing a sleeping cap with his name, a robe with the Travelodge logo, and slippers. Some time ago, Travelodge would give a free toy plush bear to any child staying in the Sleepy Bear Den room, of which every Travelodge used to have at least one.

You don't see them around much anymore, but to tell you the truth it's been a while since I looked.

Next: another shot of the same place, with a surprise.
