This postcard features three color images of the Sheraton Motor Inn. The image on the left is an interior view of the lobby, showing a gold couch and curtains, a tapestry hung on the stone wall, a wooden coffee table, and a woman and a man standing in front of the window. The top right image is an exterior view of the covered portico in front of Paul's Northside Restaurant, a stone building with stone pillars at the portico. An "S" surrounded by laurel leaves is in the upper left corner of the image. The bottom image features the inn's pool with the three story hotel building seen behind it. People are seen swimming in the in-ground pool and yellow lounge chairs are gathered around it. The back of the card identifies the location and provides the following information: "A year-round, resort-type atmosphere, with beautiful shrubs and flowering plants, well-manicured daily to provide lush green foliage at every corner. Two swimming pools; Spacious Bedrooms; Deluxe Executive Suites; Restaurant; Pyramid Lounge; Airport Limousine Service; Meeting facilities for up to 450."
