Gold Rock's Howard Johnson's Restaurant was one of the last three in North Carolina -- making it until the middle 1990s. As recently as 2001 the Restaurant's dining room included its original eight sided HoJo's salad bar and many Landmark Supply fixtures. Moreover a poster advertising the Big Blue Pancakes Breakfast was on the door leading from the Motor Lodge lobby, and was a remnant of the Restaurant's last days as a Howard Johnson's.

Finally giving up the ghost, the Gold Rock Motor Lodge became an unbranded property by the 2010s. However it may have been rebranded during the latter half of the 2010s as a Roadway Inn.
