Built in 1962? by/for Paul and Hazel McKee and James and Maxine Freeland based on the success of the adjacent General Joseph E. Johnston Motel and the location being at the intersection of Highways 70 and 85.
Freeland entered into a business partnership with William and Mildred Kramer in June 1961 to manage and operate the motel. This partnership terminated in August 1963 mainly due to the lack of obtaining necessary monetary loans.
It is now the OYO Hotel Durham West Hills.
