The places we stay. The places we see. Where we rest for a night or a week. Those temporary sanctuaries from the streets and the people. Sometimes they are high end with all the bells and whistles. Sometimes they are utilitarian with just a bed and a table. As long as it’s clean.
Many of these images are of hotels and motels that I’ve seen on my travels and not places I’ve stayed.
Located in downtown Richmond, KY, the Glyndon opened in 1889. The original building burned and the current building was erected in 1891. Horse-drawn carriages would bring guests from the local L&N depot.
The Jellico sits right off of I-75 in Jellico, TN. The motel and restaurant are closed and are currently up for sale.
This abandoned hotel is in downtown Mt. Vernon, KY. Built in 1913, the hotel sits right beside the railroad.
