Williams Deluxe Cabins is a historic motel complex located in West Whiteland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1937, and includes four contributing buildings. They are a service station and motel office, house, and two multiple rental units. The buildings have Tudor Revival design influences, such as half-timbering and rough faced stucco finish. The service station is a 1 1/2-story, "T"-shaped building with a steeply pitched cross gable roof. It is linked to the office by a one-story breezeway.[2] The place is also referred to as Icabod's Plaza or Icabod's News.[3][4]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
