If you are a history buff, this Oroville motel is perfect for YOU! The Western Motor Lodge was constructed in 1958 by the Western Pacific Railroad. It was originally used as a lodging facility for the railroad switching crews. These crew members helped with one of the company’s largest short-line railroads, the Sacramento Northern Railway, which once reached from San Francisco to Chico. The current owners bought the motel from Western Pacific Railroad in 1978. Knowing the history of the property, the owners kept most of it the same and rented the rooms to local residents and many famous folk over the years! The two-story property features 29 motel-style rooms on the first floor, each with its own bathroom and closet. On the second floor, there are 30 smaller hotel-style rooms, each with its own sink, and a community living area/“hangout space" with a communal bathroom for all upstairs residents. Other features include an enormous pool with pool decking and gated to create a fun and safe atmosphere, a plethora of fruit trees, a detached garage/shop/storage area and a large on-site laundry room downstairs which is convenient for the renters and has the ability to create additional income for you! Also, you can't beat the location! Located in historic downtown Oroville, you are close to restaurants, a brewery, downtown shops, and steps away from the Feather River. This motel, with a vision and lots of rehab, is a great investment property!
