I was riding my bicycle down Iberville Street between North Broad and North Dorgenois Streets when I passed the Lucky Inn. I had to take some pictures...
I was surprised to find the Lucky Inn Hotel, more of a motel really, on a block that isn't really in the best repair. North Broad Street is a commercial district but moving in the direction of the Lucky Inn, there isn't much to tempt a tourist. The oriental statuary and motifs also caught my eye.
There is a fountain in the parking lot made of orange goldfish strung with X-mas lights, an aluminum tree, and a background hung with paintings of Chinese junks and more of the plaques that hang by the front door. I went into the parking lot to take a picture. As my camera was gearing up, a woman's voice came over a scratchy loudspeaker. I couldn't understand exactly what she was saying beyond, "Get out!"
I powered down the camera and while I was putting it in my pocket, the woman started up again. I still couldn't understand what she was saying beyond the word, "Police," and "Get out! Get out! Get out!" I got out. The walls facing the parking spaces are painted with signs that state the area is under video surveillance. I guess she knew I wasn't a customer but management seems to be less than welcoming to potential guests.
