Flint Postcards: Howard Johnson's...Again

I hate to do this after the comment below about the first HoJo's postcard, but here's another glimpse of Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge.

I Spent my Honeymoon with my first wife there in 85 LOL. We didn't even last a year. God I hate Flint.


  1. Ahh.....HoJos....we had a few people from SW work there....and then in the late 70's early 80's that exclusive club Mr.Gibby's came into play

  2. I don't remember it as a HoJo, but that is for sure what I remember as the Econo Lodge on Center Rd across from Courtland. In the early 90's we would rent a room to swim in the winter sometimes.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
