Lost Motel - a Series

Wayne and I spotted this place just outside of Mariposa on the way to Yosemite and dubbed it the Bates Motel. On our way back, we decided it was a delicious photo op and had to stop in. Looking it up on the Internet was a treat. Apparently it was operational through sometime in 2012. The comments on the crabby owner, bugs and creatures in the rooms, and the empty swimming pool during the summer months were hilarious.

Check-out time, none. Stay as long as you wish. Only requirement, no diving in pool without a helmet!
