I believe the only reason this former banquet hall is counted as being on Bush River Road is that it predates the massive re-working of the area which was entailed by I-26 coming through. (If I'm right, the same work eventually put paid to Boardwalk Plaza). At any rate it is certainly not "on" Bush River Road now.

I don't know much about the place other than the the LoopNet listing says it was built in 1975, and it was listed in phonebooks up through the February 2014 one.

I would have thought that there would have been enough traffic going to the Days Inn to keep the taggers and vandals mostly off of this property, but apparently not.

  1. I always wondered about this place when I saw the sign on Bush River Road. The pictures make it look abandoned much longer than 2014.

  2. I have a vague memory of this originally being a restaurant called the Matador. This would have been in the 70's before the interstate was reworked. I wasn't old enough to go somewhere nice like this but I seem to remember an exterior sign with a Spanish matador complete with cape and hat. That might be what was were that large vertical sign is now.

    Does anyone else remember this?

  3. I did find references beginning in 1971 to the 'Matador Motor Inn,' which did feature a restaurant near I-26 and I-126. Didn't see a specific street address, but definitely in that area.

  4. @James R -- Someone was asking here in 2013 if it were still open, so it could have closed then I guess, after the phonebook listings were closed.

  5. This was originally the Matador Motor Inn and Restaurant, an independent who used to advertise heavily on the radio. When the state redid the exit, the location became hard to get to and the original owners sold out. I went to a wedding there about ten years ago and at the time the place was owned by the people who own Corley's Lock and Key.
