Cool! When did it become the Tiki Lodge? Last time we were in Modesto, it was some kind of city run low-income housing facility.

Glad to see it's back, and with a tiki name, no less!

Hey Eric, not sure when the change. I was driving up McHenry and saw it the other day. Next time I'll have a look around. Maybe maybe we have come full circle and it will get better, but at least they are not razing the place.

Ha, how cool! For me, things have already come full circle in seeing this sign using the Hanalei Hotel Tiki from my photo in the Book of Tiki:



He is already the most copied BOT image in the Tiki Revival, but to see him appear on the sign of an authentic Tiki Motel & lounge is really cool

Yeah, I thought I recognized that tiki! Congrats again, Sven! (if congratulations are in order...)

And Vic, you're right, we should thank the Tiki Gods that it wasn't razed to become some non-tiki establishment!

Long live Tiki!!!

That's awesome news, maybe all the tiki people stopping by to tell them how cool the place used to be got them thinking.

It's so great that some owner sees the value of Tiki and not some Ramada inn Motel 6 wanabe crap.

or perhaps they saw the value of the history. I drove thru the parking lot Saturday afternoon. All 4 tikis remain. Only 5 cars in the parking lot. But it was clean.
