California Bungalow Hotel
Big Hotel On North Side
The Lusk Development and Improvement Company will soon start on the construction of the new California Bungalow hotel, which will be erected in the Tom Bell addition to Lusk, which lies north of the railroad tracks. The new hotel will be on the north bank of Running Water, facing Main Street on the west.
In some ways the new hotel will be very unique in design. It will have a 100-foot front with a porch ten feet in depth, running the entire length of the front. The structure will be 200 feet deep and will contain, when completed, 65 rooms, about 10 x 12 feet, also provided with a large wash room, containing lavatories and showers.
A large comfortable office and lounging room will greet the guests, and adjacent thereto will be a three-chair barber
shop with the latest style furnishings obtainable. At the right of the lobby is a large entrance leading into the spacious dining room, 36 x 30 feet. The kitchen will be large and built conveniently, with ample store room and provisions closets. The building is to be of frame construction and is built around a large and deep light court, so that all rooms will be outside ones. The interior finish will be of yellow pine and slash grained fir. The furniture and decorations will all be along modern lines. The entire structure is being erected at a cost of approximately $50,000 and is to be completed within 60 days.
