More Info
This motel was featured in the comedy classic, 'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' Starring John Candy & Steve Martin. In this scene the two characters have stayed the night in the motel (Called the Braidwood Inn) and are sitting outside waiting for a lift to their next destination. I visited here in August 2000 and the name had changed to 'The Sun Motel'. The actual spot where the movie took place is actually at the back of the motel, (The side closest to the interstate). Apparently, at the time the movie was made (1986/7), this motel was quite rough and run down, and there were dubious goings on inside, and as a result the plans to film some interior shots were cancelled. Google streetview is only available from the interstate and at the moment the picture isn't very clear.
