Old Kinston motor lodge being retro-fitted to open as 60’s style hotel in April

KINSTON, N.C. (WITN) – A hotel in the east that was built in 1964 is being retro-fitted back to it’s former glory.

“It had become the seedy motel, you could rent by the hour, by the day by the week, so you know what was going on here, and it made this end of town just very shady,” says Stephen Hill who is doing the renovations.

The Kinston Motor Lodge will reopen as the Mother Earth Motor Lodge in April with 20 suites and 25 single rooms that will look exactly as they did when the lodge opened in 1964, including the restoration of the kidney-shaped pool.
