The Origins of Motels
Motels first appeared in the 1920s in California. As the US road network developed so did the need for basic cheap motel accommodation as the routes covered long distances across the country. Motels were developed along major highways and always had the advantage of easy parking – often right outside your motel unit. The peak of their popularity was the 1960s when the ever expanding middle classes took to the roads to explore America. In more recent years as traffic switched to interstates we have seen developments of cheap and branded budget hotels (often franchises) near busy intersections – often with fast food restaurants and gas stations.
Motels are not unknown outside USA and Canada but just may not be called motels. European countries, with their lack of development land, skipped the motel period, but you will find the budget hotel chains at major motorway/autobahn/autoroute intersections.
