    Constructed sometime in the 1940s, this motel catered to travellers on their way north to cottage country when Bradford Street / Highway 11 was the main throughfare.

    A variety of other motels and businesses served the same market during this 'golden age' of motor travel.

    With the completion of Highway 400 in the late 1950's, and the transfer of role as the major throughfare to cottage country, this Bradford Street business area began to decline and then change.

    In recent years, all prestige vanished, was either rented by the hour or by the month. The motel caught fire in June 2006 and was condemned.
     Media Coverage
    Some articles in local newspapers as a result of the fire or as a result of various arrests made over the last few years.
     Future Plans
    The City of Barrie purchased the site for $800,000 and is planning to demolish all the buildings Autumn (2006) to allow the creation of a storm-water management pond along the lower portion of the Hotchiss Creek area.
