Where did he shoot it?

I believe this is the abandoned motel on the north side of Sunset, just east of Hyperion. I actually stayed there on my first trip to California in 1977. Can't believe its still standing. Been abandoned for years. Jeff, Echo Park

Bates Hotel. Too easy. Now... the story behind why it never turned into the hipster version of the W that we were promised... THAT is a story I'd like to hear.

Whatever happened to that frost-chaddock plan to replace it with shops and condos?
