About - Travelodge

A building contractor named Scott King didn’t know how to build a flying car, but he did have an idea for bringing people closer to adventure. That’s why he opened a motel called King’s Auto Court in San Diego, just in time for one of the most adventurous events of all – the World’s Fair. Well, the World’s Fair and the motel were both smash hits. In fact, because of the Fair, the motel stayed fully booked most of that year.

This caused a little light bulb to go off over Scott’s head, and if video cameras had been as prevalent then as they are today he would have turned to one of them, looked straight into the lens and dramatically said, “It’s time to expand.”
