COCOA BEACH — A Cocoa Beach motel owner has a plan to save his investment.
Next week, the Fawlty Towers Motel will become a nudist resort.
Owner Paul Hodge says the change in dress code is a last-ditch effort to keep the 32-room motel open.
So far, Hodge says about 10 rooms have been booked for the opening day. Florida Today reports that people who aren't staying at the motel can buy a day pass for $25 that gives them access to the tiki bar and pool area.
Hodge says he's pleasantly surprised by the number of local nudists who've stopped by to wish him well.
Others in Cocoa Beach aren't so thrilled. But Hodge says there's nothing in city codes to prevent a nudist resort.
