The $7 room charges for Slumbercoaches were not out of line in those days. And still, they usually didn't sell out.

Remember, Motel 6 got its name because it offered single rooms for $6 when it first began (actually, $6.60, but close enough for marketing purposes).

Do you remember the black & white coin-operated pay TVs?

I don't remember the coin operated ones, but recall paying a surcharge at check-in and getting a key to "start" the TV.  And color was a bit more expensive.  This got me to remembering the pay-per-view TV chairs you always saw at the bus station, but I never recall seeing any at a train station.
