A true Motorcycle friendly motel! The owners are riders too.
The Jonquil Motel was built in 1936 on Highway 80.
Highway 80 was a major highway across the country (see: https://en.m.wikipedia.
Although the jonquil is a flower (a member of the daffodil family) the motel got its name from its founder, John Quill.
It was originally a house and service station (the service station was removed years ago) and John Quill (the motel’s namesake) built the motel to serve cross-country travelers.
Quill and his family operated the Jonquil until the mid 1970s when the area copper mines closed. (note that the motel was only closed for a couple years- other than that it’s been in continuous operation since 1936)
