Old Motel Rooms

A motor hotel is commonly called a motel. The term was coined in 1925 when the United States highway system started to develop across the country. Automobile journeys began to lengthen and created the need for clean and inexpensive lodging along the way.

Motels peaked in the 1960s as hotel chains slowly started to replace the trusty motor lodge. You can still find motels, but the rooms are not nearly  as inviting as these ideal marketing representations.
