Built in 1963, the Asheville property located in the area's "motel row" featured 120 rooms, heated pool, Crown Room Restaurant, Grill Room, Gift Shop, and color TV was available.

Note that as an earlier location, the Motor Lodge's lobby used a building that was similar to the Restaurant's.

Probably converted into a Ramada Inn by the later 1970s, the property took on a "tudor' look and the restaurant became KC's Food & Spirits. Lasting as a Ramada into the 2000s, the former Horne's had become the unbranded Royal Inn by 2007.
