It's May, a celebratory month for so many reasons!

We have our own reason to celebrate - it's the month the motel was ready for operation, well, this was way back... in 1952. Although the project started in 1948, it came to completion in May 1952.

Sixty three years in the making and we are loving to be part of this great transformation.

Every year we've been involved in a project around the property, this year it was more like 4 different area we worked on: 
  • the house bathroom - made it a master 4piece bathroom, 
  • the lobby - reception area got a make over for flooring and wall finishes, 
  • then another room, #5 became the cozy, contemporary, welcoming king bed for the modern days 
  • and a 4piece bathroom as well.
It seems like I was quite preoccupied for the last couple of months to say the least!

Pictures from the lobby!

Here are some pictures from the king size bed #5

and here are some pictures from the 4piece bathroom

THE END! (at least for now)

Taking Charge of our Business

When we took over this property - The Usonian Inn, - Frank Lloyd Wright, architectural design building, we vowed to make it a sustainable establishment.

First year, I was just learning the business, and I pulled it off; we finished strong - even better then what was happening here before. Great occupancy rate and customers satisfaction as well.

We started with raising the standard this property could offer, to enhance its potential, to meet our expectations first and create more comfort to our valuable guests.
All rooms have refrigerators, microwaves and individually coffee makers.
The TV service was upgraded to DirecTV, 200 channels with game lounge and non commercial movies, Cinemax, Showtime, HBO, FLIX, and sport package, football, tennis, etc.;
We implemented the provision of High Speed Wireless Internet Service throughout the building, at no cost to our patrons. (previously no service was offered at all)
A full package of business services - fax, printer,copy - is offered as well.

This was then,...
