Directly across La Cienega Boulevard from the old 'La Cienega Lanes/Flippers' is another untouched relic, the Alta Cienega Motel.




One reason this small motel has been relatively untouched is that Jim Morrison used to live in room 32!

-there it is!

Room 32 today

-in the same vicinity.

I've been trying to remember what venue used to be located just north of the Alta Cienega Motel (northwest of the old Flippers).

-the southwest corner of La Cienega Boulevard & Holloway Drive.


-here's a side view from La Cienega Blvd. (it resembles an old spanish kitchen)

-the view from Holloway Drive (La Cienega is at left)


This noirish looking place encased in all that burnt umber paint has intrigued me for quite some time.

A big source of income for the owners of the property are the two massive billboards.
(one actually emerges from the vacant structure)
