Sagamore Hotel Courts, Royal Oak, Michigan

This is another example of a more suburban motel, as the location of Royal Oak is a city on the border with Detroit, Michigan.

Pub. by Freeman Studios, Berrien Springs, Mich.

The description states:


Michigan’s Finest

Royal Oak – Woodward at Coolidge

Pontiac – Woodward at South Blvd.

On U. S. 10 – North Suburban Detroit

Excellent Accommodations

Telephone in each room

50 Rooms and Tiled Baths

“Travel First Class – It Costs No More”

–Even though this is a more urban location, the amenities are still quite limited according to the description, but this would be typical of the earlier motel designs. Since it is called a Hotel and not a Motel, it is likely that it was constructed in the 1940s. A check of maps of this area indicates the motel has long been demolished.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
