I was hoping the phone number was still the same, but it’s not 🙂

A neat view of the old Neon Sign, long gone. The hotel renovated/expanded in the early 1990’s, maybe 1993-ish?

It’s still around and still open. I can’t think of a tougher business that to be an independent Hotel/Motel operator. I have a listing for the Cadillac Motel in the 1958 phone book, so the business has been around at least 53 years. It has to be the oldest Hotel business in Windsor still in operation…
