I love this postcard because this place looks like a total dump. They took extra effort to include an inset of the swimming pool, but how could that be a good idea? The pool has few chairs around it, and it is so close to the parking lot that you could breathe the car exhaust while you swim (or drive your car into the pool since there's no fence around the pool to keep out your '62 Dodge or your 2-year old child).
The best part is the sign. It's a total ripoff of the Holiday Inn "Great Sign." If you look closely at photos of the old Holiday Inn signs, it's clear that this is not one of them, since the proportions are different and there's no marquee to hang the letters on that spell "Happy Anniversary Marge and Jim" on one side and "Visit Our Lounge" on the other.
Here's a "Great Sign" for comparison...
