Route 66 News

Motel reopens in Atlanta, Ill.

The Bloomington Pantagraph reports that a motel that had been closed for eight months near Interstate 55 in the Route 66 town of Atlanta, Ill., has reopened as an America’s Best Value Inn.

I believe the motel had been called the I-55 Motel, where I had stayed once several years ago.

New owner Narish Desai has already completed renovations on the interior of the building, including updated rooms with high-speed Internet access. He has future plans for a pool, business center and meeting rooms, as well as a restaurant, pizza parlor and ice cream shop.
