Oh, man! What a find! An out of business hotel, complete with a sign with a lot of fonts, a nice variety of shapes, and the relics of some old neon.
And this was a fun find: the Clinton City Council voted unanimously in August 2019 to have the building demolished. Apparently that didn’t happen,: in 2021 the Clinton Economic Development Authority authorized $7.75 million to renovate the hotel and an adjoining restaurant.
From what I saw, it’ll take every bit of that money to renovate the place, which had, according to the second article, “fallen into a deep decline.”
