The Stratford Hotel later became the General Washington Inn & Motel. An advertising message from the back of a General Washington Inn & Motel postcard read: Located in the heart of Colonial Virginia on the site of the home of Mildred Washington, aunt and godmother of our first president. We say with confidence —- “George Washington really did sleep here.”
