After building the first four-unit motel and pool the project fell through. The prototype languished and was passed from owner to owner until 2008, when interior designer Tracy Beckman and business partner and furniture designer Ryan Trowbridge spent four years on a renovation, which gained the approval of the Lautner Foundation, who sanctioned its renaming as The Lautner, a hotel in honor of its designer.
