Across the street from the Premier Motel is the historic Aztec motel. Below is a brief history I stumbled on online.
"The Aztec Motel opened as the "Aztec Autocourt" in 1931. The sign is porcelain enamel with neon. In the early 1990s, the motel was run-down when Mohamed Natha bought it and began fixing it up. Phyllis Evans, a longtime resident of the hotel, began decorating her room and then the entire property with tiles, crosses, paintings and other objects. The eccentric artwork still remains. The current owner only allows long-term renters. The Aztec is listed on the National Register of Historic Places."
