Elvis Didn’t Sleep Here

The supposedly famous Heartbreak Hotel in Kenansville, Florida

Spotted enroute to our cruise ship in Port Canaveral, Florida.

According to several sources, the tie to Elvis is a tenuous and indirect one.  The song “Heartbreak Hotel” was co-written by songwriters Mae Boren Axton and Tommy Durden.  Durden possibly did stay at this hotel, and was possibly inspired by a local newspaper article about the suicide of a lonely man who jumped from a hotel window.  Although not this one.

    1. It’s interesting how those things just seem to come along. I had actually been reviewing my Google maps to figure out a place for a bathroom break, and right down the road from a local gas station/convenience store it showed “Heartbreak Hotel.” So of course we needed to investigate!

      You know that some of our favorite words are “I wonder what’s down this road?” 😉
