Topic:  Motels
Author:  seh
Blog Post:  The first motel appeared in San Luis Obispo, California in 1926, under the name "Milestone Mo-Tel", but the concept of convenient lodgings for motorists was born in the days of the Model-T Ford. This affordable automobile, which began production in 1908, enabled people to travel long distances to their choice of destinations, and these travelers often required overnight lodgings en route to their destinations. And so the "motor hotel", or "motel" was born. Motels often provide convenient parking spots for travelers that are adjacent to motel room entrances, and they have evolved over the years to provide amenities such as telephones, swimming pools, WiFi, and breakfasts.
