Okay, and now for some things I've found about this place on the web. Ranging from positive reviews, with nice pictures, to extremely negative reviews.

Sabu the Coconut Boy displays a postcard and description of it in two places.
Here on TikiCentral at:

and on tikiroom.NET at

A review that make the place sound REALLY run-down and skanky:

Contrasted with someone who really liked the place... this link has a couple good photos:

Another review that makes it sound absolutely horrible-- like a crack den-- although they are talking about the "Fort Nelson Motor INN" (as opposed to HOTEL) so it's possibly a different place?
http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g182192-d183785-r1754392-Fort_Nelson_Motor_Inn-Fort_Nelson_British_Columbia.html

Very basic info about the motel, contact info but no pictures, 3 star rating out of 5:

and
http://www.zoomandgo.com/Hotel_Review-hkHCANCA02A0189hk-Reviews_and_Pictures_of_Fort_Nelson_Motor_Inn_Fort_Nelson_Canada


And it looks like you can buy it for $7M Canadian... although I'm not positive it's the same place...

Here are two more postcards I have from this place to update the lost links.





Interesting Tikis, can't really peg the style?



Cool message on the back on the Tiki card - a lush tropical oasis on a rough and muddy travel.
