The hotel is the same one used in "The Rifleman". Rhys Williams who plays the Doctor in this episode also plays Doctor Burrage in 6 episodes of "The Rifleman" just not the same Drs. Office. It's also the same town as Northfork in "The Rifleman" with a few changes. Both shows use the same filming location. See more
