General Information:

This motel was quite something when it was built in 1967 or just before. Albert Pick started out as a hotel supply company but eventually built a chain of hotels. It was the 3rd largest chain as of 1957. Alas, this was short-lived as they were out of business by the end of the 1960's. Basically Best Western and Holiday Inn ate their lunch.

Many of the locations lived on under different names as this one must have. The last historical aerial photo of the original structure appears on the 1981 version. It appears as though a sizable portion of it was demolished in the early 80's. Articles from the 2000's still referred to the site as the former location of the Albert Pick Hotel and the 2004 news photo looks similar. As of 1983, First of Michigan took over the site. A Fifth Third bank now sits on the lot as of 2022. It looks like a different building to me.
