Lexington-North, Kentucky
 --1987 N. Broadway

The North Howard Johnson's was the newer of the two built in the Lexington area. It opened in the Spring of 1966 strategically located along U.S. 27 where it intersected the newly completed I-75 & 64. The property ceased being a HoJo's in 1989 and was subsequently converted into a Days Inn

Note that Lexington's ultra modern Hospitality Motor Inn (aerial view) was located across the Interstate from the HoJo's.

The Restaurant was the LAST one in the Bluegrass State. Moreover its owners, the Entwistles, were dedicated to the concept nearly to its demise as evidenced with their adoption of FAI's circa 1991 arch at the Restaurant's entrance (Please see Canton and Pittsburgh for other arch examples).
