When I was 7 or 8 and we stayed there, I was taking a shower and the ceiling in the bathroom fell on me.
We stayed here for 10 years in a row for the 2nd week of August when I was a kid. I loved that place. The game room was THE place to be and everyone was there. Lots of fond memories. We went back many years later and it was called the royal pavilion or something. It wasn’t the same place at all. Sorry it’s gone now.
I was born in 1980 and from the time I can remember, I remember staying at the John Yancey every summer (in August). I have such fond memories of this place, I loved the game room, the donuts in the morning. I was sad to hear it was torn down. In the 90's it changed hands and the eventual owner sold the place piece by piece. The new (former owner) had even built a tower edition that was only up for a few short years so I was surprised to hear he was tearing the place down.
I worked for Mr Yancey and helped to create the brochure for the motel during 68-69. I audited all 3 of his motels. He was a great forward thinking person as well as being generous.
I was the life guard here in the summers of 1967 & 1968, different time.
I remember this place in the 1960's and it was truly grand in its day.
I lived at this Hotel when I was 16
