    This 1963 building is representative of numerous chain motels constructed in Colorado Springs during the post World War II period. The TraveLodge motel chain, founded in 1939 in California, embraced a policy of building as close to the downtown area as possible.

    The two story concrete block building was constructed at mid-block on two parcels with dimensions of 100' x 190' and featured hot water heat and air conditioning. Locally significant.
