Six Tesla and two Clipper Creek at the Holiday Inn Express. I didn’t plan this, just got lucky.

Sounds like. Tesla installs Clipper Creek, and up to one per two HPWCs I believe, so that fits the profile of a completely Tesla funded install.

Correct I just checked, it is a Destination Charger and there is a second hotel in Conway (Comfort Suites Conway) that has some Tesla Destination Chargers. They are popping faster than SuperChargers. Combined makes long distance road trips much easier.

Are they on PlugShare? If not, add them and snap some pictures! ;)

Does PlugShare show Tesla Destination Chargers? They are displayed in the Tesla Destination Chargers site and will display in the car Nav?

Most Destination Chargers are on Plugshare, I believe, even ones without J1772 plugs.

Your right, I had to change the settings. There is a Tesla Destination Charger at a restaurant across the parking lot from the hotel we stay at in Dowell/Solomon Islands in MD when we visit our kids/grand kids in St Leonard MD.

The Hilton Garden Inn is trying to work a deal with the Ruddy Duck Restaurant to allow hotel guests to use them. It's a perfect location about 125 miles from the Hagerstown SC and 100 miles from Richmond Va SC. That was the last location to fall into place for me.

Small world. I don't get down that way very often, but I actually ate and charged at the Ruddy Duck a couple weeks ago.

Nice to hear good EV news coming from my home state! We are a now fully-converted EV family living in rural Arkansas. It all started with the Volt, then we added an i3 REx, then a few months ago installed a large solar array. Large enough to offset all power the house and cars consume, plus a bit more. The last two months' electric bills have been $9 each, which is the basic service fee.

Arkansas is not exactly an EV friendly state, hence the decision to go with a Volt and an i3 REx instead of pure EVs, but the infrastructure is certainly improving. We really do have some of the best roads to go quietly cruising down, so much more peaceful than in a loud ICE car. I made a video of the Volt when I first got it of it backing out of the garage and couldn't help but notice the insects were louder than the car. And that is, IMHO, how it should be.

Hoping to continue to see improvements until 2019 when maybe a Model 3 becomes reasonably available! :)
