Westbrook, Connecticut -- 28 Flat Rock Place (Essex Rd @ I-95)

One of the last two Howard Johnson's built in Connecticut, Westbrook was opened in 1978. The Howard Johnson Company opened it and North Stonington during a brief expansion attempt at the end of the 1970s.

It was a standard Mansard-type, and was well sited facing the Interstate. The unit remained an Orange roofed HoJo's until 1985. For a period of time it operated as a local eatery called Andy's and then was remodeled and rebranded a Denny's.
