Here’s another quiz for Darlene and other site visitors.
I found this old postcard of the Crestview Motel and I’m trying to identify it in today’s Wickenburg. At first, I thought it was the Log Wagon motel — the layout is the same — but the vents on the building on the left don’t match up with the vents on the existing building there and the sign area is rounded instead of squared off.

Of course, there is a chance that this property no longer exists.
Anyone have information about it? Please use the Comments link below. Thanks!
February 4, 2006 Update
With information from site visitors Michael Birdsong and Darlene — thanks for your comments! — and my own pair of eyes, I found the Crestview Motel. A photo of what it looks like today is below. I think you can understand how I might have missed this, because it looks completely different. Of course, the “Crestview Apartments” sign should have tipped me off before I asked for help. (Duh.)
Crestview Apartments, February 4, 2006.
The apartment complex is separated from the road by short brick wall and brick sign. Beyond that, the open courtyard has been filled in with covered parking for tenants and trees. These buildings are located on West Wickenburg Way.
