S&S Loan at 11453 Pacific Highway has long been abandon. When I pulled in to snap some photos, my daughter called it that creepy place and it does have a desolate vibe. The property is available for sale from Kidder Mathews with an asking price of $650,000. The value is in the land with the 7,000 square foot, 1964 building being a tear down. One of the best assets the property has is that it is across the street from the Sound Transit Station.
The Norman Bates Motel at 4411 Pacific Highway East, Fife, Washington 98424 was demolished in 2012. The land is available for sale. I’m not finding much information about the motel or why it was named after the hotel in the famous Hitchcock movie, Psycho. I’ve included photos from today and from April 2012, which the building was in place but behind a fence.
My family just recently watched Psycho in an effort to find a movie that isn’t a slasher flick, but actually scares my dear daughter. She enjoyed the movie, despite the fact it was in black and white, but wasn’t overly scared. Info about the movie can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psycho_%28film%29
