Brochure circa 1990s: Kummerlowe
Lake Charles, Louisiana -- 2600 Moeling Street (@ I-10)

Opened in 1967, the Lake Charles Complex featured a classic A-frame Gate Lodge and 'T' type Restaurant. The Motor Lodge retained its HoJo's status until the early 1990s. Like the Shreveport Motor Lodge, Lake Charles became a Richmond Inn and Suites Best Western with both losing their Gate Lodges in 1999.

Unfortunately the reasonably well-preserved property became bank owned by the 2010s and it future appears bleak. In 2012 the distressed property was being offered on LoopNet for $5,495,000.
