Postcard circa 1965

 Denver-South, Colorado
6300 East Hampden Ave


When it opened in May of 1965, this Denver Howard Johnson's marked a significant milestone in HoJo's history, for it represented a link of Orange Roofs from coast to coast.

With views of both the Rockies and of Denver, guests of this large Motor Lodge once enjoyed its beautiful setting.

The Motor Lodge was listed as a Quality Inn, but most recently the property was called the Hampden Lodge Denver Tech Center. Perhaps once affiliated with the Quality Inn, the Restaurant, in its last guise, was called Skillet's Restaurant & Lounge. The entire site has been razed.
