The Metro Inn, and its sister (??) motel Aqua City next door are complete anomolies in their well maintained residential/suburban neighborhood. Their heyday was obviously the 1950's, when transcontinental travel by car was king. Now, both are rundown, seedy, residential style inns. The mint green painted pool at Aqua City (thus the name) hasn't seen water in years, and the Metro Inn often has shady looking characters lying around on the front lawn.
Which is really a shame. Both motels sport a lot in the way of 1950's retro modern architecture, and should be preserved in some fashion. If they were in a more urban area, perhaps they could be converted into a sort of hipster, rockstar hangout, like the Phoenix in San Francisco.
