Pretty good CC version. This building really deserves that extra 16x32, and it looks very good that way.

Looks great. I love all the little details you put into every room of the build. Great idea to add an extra 16x32, it really gave you the room you needed to make it feel like a hotel.
My only suggestion is to put more photos in your first post
At least one overview of each level.

Wonderfully detailed modified Cafe Corner 'dede_la_fee' and there's nothing wrong with customising minifigs....I do the same.
I like the tiled floor, a classic art deco pattern.
Excellent job designing the interior and Brick On 'dede_la_fee' !

Nice work! I've been adding an interior to my CC as well, but the extension works well here. I think the dark bley roof works well.

I prefer the original colours, with the white/yellow awnings and the dark red roof, but if you change the yellow to red it's a logical choice to change the roof as well. Apart from that personal choice on the colours I think you've done a pretty darn good job with this. Adding another 16x32 is a very good idea, and it's amazing to see how much more room you get inside from doing that. The bar and the reception area are my favourite parts of this, but some of your custom stickers are pretty neat too, especially the H with the stars just outside the hotel door. I think I'd maybe have tried not to cram so many rooms into the upper floors, as they end up quite cramped - but still: Great job!
Coming from AFOLs so talented, it's very flattering!

You are so correct that the ground floor room is too small to do much; I ended up buying two CC's and combining them so there would be room for a larger restaurant, etc.
These are gorgeous buildings, and all of the modulars are wonderful in my book. Congratulations on a fine build!

Great bigger version of Cafe Corner and great interior! I'm wondering why TLC decided to put nothing in there. The rooms look cozy and inviting.
I assume they wanted to let the builders use their imagination...

It's a wonderful MOD of the CC, dede la fee
. I work in a hotel, so I always like to see how people make the details in Lego. And you have really nice details here. Though I must admit that I wonder how people should get to the second bed in the twin room on the second floor. Climb over the first bed?
"Ole Kirk's Café"
I actually named my Lego town "Christiansenburg"
, As soon as my man and I are moving to a larger place, big enough so we can dedicate an entire room to our Lego town and trains, I'll also put numbers to the buildings and names to the streets.
We do have a dream: make a section on my website where we can show the "history" of the town, the minifigs building the town from scratch, starting with a small farm, then progressing towards a whole village, then a thriving town, with some of the older building falling into disrepair.... Listen to me, dreaming out loud, we're far from that right now!

I like the bar-counter you made, I´we been puzzling with something similar (not CC) but I never managed a good solution that did not take to much space.
I hope mine inspires you to make your own now.

I like it a lot. I think there is too much dark-bley on top. Maybe make the bits on the flat roof, and the curved slopes above the dormer windows black.
For the roof color, I tried black, but to me it looks sooooooooooooo much better in dark grey, and I'm planning other buildings with dark grey roof, so the MOD CC will blend in just right...
Thank you for your contribution, every one!
