Fallen by the Wayside

Fallen by the Wayside

The Grants Motor Lodge opened along Route 66 in Grants, New Mexico in 1945 and was a fairly “run of the mill place” for many years, with the exception of the early 1960s, when it was owned and run by Clint Lester and his wife, both of whom were “little people” and stood under 142cm tall. The hotel changed ownership and names several times after that, each time bringing it closer to its ultimate fate as the now-abandoned and appropriately-named Wayside Motel, according to the blog Never Quite Lost.
