Are there motels out there that still have the $.25 vibrating beds?

My daughter doesn't believe there were motels that had $.25 machines that vibrated the bed. I want to take her to show her one. Does anyone know if they are still around?

I remember, as a kid, on our trip out west we stopped in motels with $.25 vibrating beds, Coke machines for $.15 (glass bottles Coke or Fanta), pay TV's (were they also $.25 for 1/2 hour???), actual keys for the rooms, etc.

About five years ago I stayed at a Motel 6 in Spokane, WA, that had the "magic fingers". My husband had never seen them either, but when I was growing up (my parents are fond of cheap motels and cartrips) I always looked forward to them.

My parents also frequented hotels with Magic Finger beds. But they refused to give us the 25 cents to make the bed vibrate. Now that's frugal.
