Montgomery-East, Alabama
 -- 1110 East Blvd 

Opened in early 1968, the Montgomery-East Howard Johnson's was a classic Motor Lodge and Restaurant complex offering just 62 guest rooms. It was strategically sited on the east side of Montgomery where the Eastern By-Pass (U.S. 80) and I-85 intersected, and motorists would have been hard-pressed not to see it while driving through Montgomery.

Relatively long-lived, the Motor Lodge didn't lose its HJ status until about 1995 and was subsequently converted into the Wynfield Inn. The site was razed in August of 2003. A Sam's Club was built behind the former Motor Lodge and a Drury Inn came to occupy the HJ's site.
