Ranch House Motel
The Family Counseling Association of Jefferson County kept offices in the motel's east building in the 1960s. Anil and Smita Patel, incorporators of AKS Inc., were owners of the motel by 1982. They closed the motel for remodeling in 1983 and reopened it as a Hospitality Inn.
In the 2000s, the motel was the scene of at least two homicides. On October 12, 2002, a man was shot to death in a dispute over stolen money. On July 10, 2011 a man was killed in his room by blunt-force trauma. Gregory Chancey, a motel worker who had been a drinking buddy to the victim, eventually pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminally-negligent homicide in that death.
The motel closed in 2017 and the site was marketed for redevelopment as a ground lease.
The motel's east building, occupied illicitly, was burned by arson on March 12, 2019. The fire also destroyed two neighboring businesses, Yum Yai restaurant and Chai Market, and another vacant building, the former 22nd Street Jazz Cafe. Two days later the west building, unharmed by the first fire, was also hit by arson.
