In 1995 Wes Anderson picked the Windmill Inn (now Days Inn Hillsboro) to serve as a partial backdrop to his directorial debut, Bottle Rocket.
In 2011 the Reservoir Geeks learned of the motel's financial troubles and what was supposed to be a drunken night with a couple of fans in iconic room 212, grew to a yearly event now dubbed The Lovely Soiree at the Bottle Rocket Motel.
