A classic 1940s motel, where scores of stars, including Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley, once stayed, the Drake Motel draws attention these days because of its hard-luck vibe and nostalgia-inducing neon sign: the 1993 movie The Thing Called Love, starring River Phoenix and Sandra Bullock, and the video for Jason Aldean's song "The Truth" were both filmed here. But let's be real: the Drake isn't for everybody. The furnishings in the rooms are dated and low-end, although a few rooms have artwork paying homage to stars that once slept there. If you're an adventure seeker who's not afraid to bed down in a sketchy part of town, go for it. If not, there's no harm in stopping by the lobby for a quick look-see and a photo next to the life-size, autographed cutout of Dolly.
