Adaptive Reuse in Peoria, IL at U-Haul Moving & Storage at War Memorial Dr

Building History

The Travelodge chain of hotels was founded when Scott King created a motel in San Diego in 1935. That year the World Fair was set up in San Diego and Mr. King saw an opportunity to provide accommodations for all the visitors. The hotel was nearly booked up its entire first year, proving Mr. King's eye for opportunity and travel adventures. 

The first motel was named the King's Auto Court and its tremendous success spurred 24 more locations to be built across Southern California. The very first hotel to be named Travelodge was opened in 1940 and the Sleepy Bear mascot was introduced in 1954. 

The Travelodge building was built in 1980 and U-Haul acquired the property in 2018. Adaptive reuse building conversions allow U-Haul to promote infill development to meet citizens’ needs while preserving the natural resources and land normally required for new construction. Adaptive reuse also allows resources to be focused on integrating environmentally thoughtful features into the existing building rather than creating waste in the form of demolition and using valuable resources for new construction.
