    I read this so many times & loved it as a kid! The cover, with all the oranges in the swimming pool, has always stuck in my mind. :D

    The Old Motel Mystery by Gertrude Chandler Warner is a fantastic mystery book about Violet, Benny, Henry, and Jessie Alden who went to visit their aunt in Florida, Miami.

The four children Stayed with Kay Kingsley in her old motel that she inherited many years ago. The motel wasn’t a pretty sight, the children suggested that they help fix up the motel so that Ms. Kingsley would not have to sell it. Soon after someone began to sabotage their work by stealing items that were necessary for the job to be done or undoing what they had done. It seems that someone didn’t want the old Motel to get fixed. This was a fantastic read and Gertrude does a wonderful job capturing readers, as soon as I read past chapter one I began to feel like I could not put this book down until I found out who the culprit was. Being new to The Boxcar Children series I have not read any other story like this one. The illustrations are small but are well done and in pencil. The story had enough suspense and drama that it would keep a reader interested. The children in The Old Motel Mystery are very bright and very eager to help others. The characters have well written dialogue. Gertrude did a wonderful job in building her characters. The characters were dynamic and changed a bit throughout the story mainly in that they were more mature near the end of the story. I would definitely recommend the series to students of the middle school reading level.

    A good clean mystery book for kids! The kids are portrayed as helpful, hardworking, playing well, considerate of others; independent, yet good with social interaction, etc. Of course, they solve a mystery! The wrongdoer is caught, repents, is forgiven and there is a happy ending for all. This mystery is well written and recommended for kids of all ages.

    Actual bad things happened! But nobody was punished. So, more like a proper mystery but the kids get off feeling good, I guess?

    I am revisiting my childhood through reading certain books. The Boxcar Children, books are being read now. Frog and Toad/Wind in the Willows and Disney titles will be next. This story was entertaining and the big "takeaway" would be that money can't buy everything. A big motel chain wants to buy out the "little guy" that is running only 10 rooms. The little guy stands up tall and says, "no, I am happy here with my 10 rooms".

Sure, there is sneakiness, underhandedness, and suspicions cast about but it keeps you in the moment. I noticed that reading this book (at my current age) awoke an anger response because of all the dirty little things being done to shut down the motel. I really do not know if that reaction happened when I read it as a youngster. Curious.

    These children are just too perfect, but if they set high standard for their readers, more power to them.. I must admit this mystery had me engaged.

    One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

    I liked this mystery because the four main characters always seemed to be in a great mood no matter how much chaos and damage the villain made.
