RR you sure that’s what it stands for?

Double R Motel Reno, NV

“I still saw him – just not as much. More and more he spent nights with Kotku and her mother at the Double R Apartments – a transient hotel really, a broken down motor court from the 1950s, on the highway between the airport and the Strip, where guys who looked like illegal immigrants stood around the courtyard by the empty swimming pool and argued over motorcycle parts. (“Double R?” said Hadley. “You know what that stands for, right? ‘Rats and Roaches.'”)”
