    Significance Statement
    Excellent example of a motel related to the rise of auto-related commercial and motel development along Lankershim Blvd, a major thoroughfare that connected Los Angeles to former US Route 99. US Route 99 traversed the state, running close to every major city on the Pacific coast until it was replaced by Interstate 5 between 1964 and 1972.Due to window alterations, the motel may not meet integrity thresholds for National Register eligibility.
