Description
Offering deluxe rooms for $2.00, the Sacramento Motel on U.S. Highway 40 and 99 E in North Sacramento was similar to dozens of locally owned and run motels and auto courts in the Sacramento Valley. Before the rise of freeways that bypassed the older roads and highways such businesses thrived when America took to the road again at the end of World War II in 1945, when this postcard was mailed.
