This little motel is a bit of a different operation than most, you check-in at the Chevron Gas Station across the street. The next closest motel is about 50 miles away in Barstow.

x It's a little hard to date some places but in this case a 1970 ad for a retired couple to manage a small new motel in Ludlow seems to help do that. It's a one story building with ten guest rooms.

A Charlers Lepper owned the Ludlow Enterprise Motel and Service Station before he retired. He later passed away in 1976. Since this is the only motel in Ludlow I imagine this is the one he owned.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
