About Travelodge

Building contractor Scott King opened his first motel, King's Auto Court in 1935-- in time to welcome guests visiting San Diego's World's Fair. Over the next five years, he opened 24 more hotels around Southern California. The first one under the name Travelodge opened in 1940, and this became the name of Scott's company in 1946. Today Travelodge is part of the Wyndham Worldwide group of hotel chains.
