I am looking for information on the Orlando Motel. In the mid 1960's my Father and Uncle made an attempt to buy the motel but it fell through. My family spent some time there and we would like to know what became of it and see any pictures of it then and now. Thanks

When I-95 opened, most of the motels on hwy. 301, and other routes connecting Fla. from the northern states closed . Business dried up for all the motels, gas stations, tourist sites, etc, when the traffic rerouted. The Orlando was eventually torn down, although I can't remember the year. It might have been in the mid-80's. There is a trailer park on the property now.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my post. I was thinking that it didn't exist any more. My Father said that I-95 probably took all the business away. At the time they thought that Florida was going to be big for vacationers.
