Small Town Motels

John and Alice are the two owners of a chain of nine small-town motels. Each motel is in a different state, and each town (including Greenfield) has a different name. Each motel is close to the town center on the principal street; the streets have different names (including Willow) in each town. Each town was founded in a different year (including 1925). One summer, John and Alice decided to make unannounced 1-week visits to each motel in order to evaluate the local management. Each of them picked a different order to visit the motels (they might have met during their travels). From the given clues, determine for each motel the street it is on, the town and state it is in, when the town was founded, and the order in which John and Alice visited that motel. (Sorry, these towns are so tiny you won't find them on any map or history book!)

  2. John watched a different episode of a TV series on Maple Street, in Port, and in the motel that Alice visited fifth.
