Name:Tahitian Imperial Motel

Not too sure about this place. The only thing Tahitian may have been its name, but still cool lettering and building.
Looks like building is still there, but heavily expanded / remodeled.

That is either a 30s Motel that updated itself in the 50s by re-naming itself in accordance to the Polynesian trend, or it IS from the 50s Polypop period, but its modernism is old-fashioned, much like some of the "modern" architecture built in Havana in the 50s is stylistically closer to the 30s and 40s.
