This postcard features two black and white images of the Hill's Motel in Picayune, Mississippi. The main image features the exterior of the motel, a mid-century style building with rounded edges and two porticos. A large sign for the motel that advertises "air conditioned" stands beside the motel. The second image is inset in the lower right of the card and features an interior room including a bed, a chair, nightstands, and curtains. The back of the car includes a brief paragraph describing the motel. "I'm at Hill's Motel, Picayune, Miss., 55 miles north of New Orleans, 64 miles south of Hattiesburg, Miss., on U. S. 11, 35 miles from the Gulf Coast. all rooms in this Motel are fully airconditioned, equipped with air-foam mattresses, beautiful furniture, ceramic tile baths with combination tub and shower, telephones, radios and service with a smile. You are served a "Good Morning" cup of coffee and newspaper--compliments of the management."
