The 1st motel in the world
The Milestone Mo-tel, or Motel Inn of San Luis Obispo, is widely recognized as the world's first motel in history, located in California, in the United States. It opened in 1925, and closed in 1991.
It is important to emphasize that motels have a very different concept in the United States in relation to Latin America, for example. In the country, it is a more economical alternative to hotels and is usually located on the side of roads and highways. Meanwhile, in other countries they are adults-only accommodation options in a more romantic context.
