Ten Days After… The Studio City Motel


Ten days after the murders, John Holmes and Dawn were arrested at this motel on July 10, 1981. Well, the only thing is… it didn’t look like this jewel by that time. This is circa 1960. It was and is a few blocks from Eddie’s house (maybe a mile). He was not hiding from anyone, except the cops. Ten days to find… and then bring him in…

Email me for the July 1981 image of this once beautiful family motor lodge.

By 1981… it was ratty shag carpet monster, green and blue paint, yellow plastic marquee lettering… interior was eau de vomit’e… and cracked bathroom fixtures, painted over and mattresses which needed to be flipped.

Crummy motel in Sherman Oaks where John and Dawn stayed post Wonderland, and were arrested in July 1981.
