Stockton Motels of Yesterday

Many Motels used "Motel" first in their name - They are listed here with "Hotel" last for ease of finding the motel. U.S. Highway 50 was created in 1926. It ran through Tracy, up Mckinley to Charter Way then East and then North on Wilson Way. Highway 99 turned west on Mariposa Road to Charter Way, then North on Wilson Way, making the combined Highway 50/Highway 99/Wilson Way one of the busiest streets in Stockton. The Highway 99 freeway on the east side of Stockton changed Wilson Way forever. The motels were hard hit. When the city redeveloped the West End along Center and El Dorado it drove the prostitutes further east to Wilson Way
