Photos from June 2011
While pulling into South of the Border, we noticed an abandoned motel literally up the road on the North Carolina side of the border. Next to it was a vacated fast food place; in fact, the only place nearby that wasn’t abandoned was a Waffle House, which is where we stopped for a quick bite (not like we had other options). We decided to explore the motel a bit before heading to SotB, which turned out to be a good idea, as this place was far more interesting.
The sign said Family Inns of America. I found out the chain still exists but only in VA, TN, and LA. I was unable to find out when this particular motel closed, but I did find out robberies took place there on at least two different occasions.
