July 1969 blurb
Niagara Falls-East, New York -- 6505 Pine Ave

Complementing the Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge and Restaurant located AT Niagara Falls, the East complex was opened in stages during 1968-69 at the site of original motor cabins which had served tourists on their way to the Falls. The Motor Lodge's original licensee operators were Dick Stein and Frank Turgeon.

2019 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the former Motor Lodge! It lasted as a Howard Johnson's for nearly 45 years before becoming an America's Best Inn.
