The Del Camino Motel was bulldozed, and Napa Auto parts store was built in it's place.

This motel is gone now. Was located NE corner of 26th st. and Oklahoma (hwy 412)- search Google maps. It's a dirt lot but you can still see the sign foundation. Wonder where the sign went? Hopefully it wasn't just tossed in the landfill. Mesa, AZ still has several of these little motor court motels that have been restored but still many were not and now used as vagrant living. The retro signs are still in place though.

This hotel was leveled about a year ago and I think there's a mechanic's garage going up in its place.

Del Camino. Buddy Woods' family used to own it and run it. That was in the '60s and '70s. I used to trade bottles at the Phillips 66 that used to be across 26th to the west. Buddy was in the cub scouts like everybody else and you could get anywhere in town on a bicycle. Times were good.

I think the best place for a hotel is in soup o.0

I am pretty sure Melissa is correct. This was the Del Camino Motel. Perhaps it was once named something else.? I can remember it circa 1980 when it was home to lots of oil field workers. Hotels and apartments were overflowing. People were living at Boiling Springs State Park and even storage units. Someone told me this motel was recently leveled? I have not been to Woodward in several years, so I can't confirm that fact.

It was actually still in business in the early 90's. I tried to rent a room there for me and my girlfriend. It didn't work out to well as we were told to go home. It's located on 26th and Oklahoma and it's a massive eyesore in a town full of other eyesores.

I want that vintage clock, the stuffed animal and the painting above the stuffed animal that is in the check in area lol. And I bet if you woulda looked at the shampoo bottles on top of the cabinet, it woulda given an idea about what time the motel was closed.

Wow…I lived in Woodward when I was a child and I remember this motel. I just can't remember the name! I'll have to ask my mom…she grew up there. Crazy…the name of the motel was actually attached when I lived there.

It is indeed the old Starlight Hotel. I learned to swim in their pool. Not sure, but I think it closed down in the mid-80s.

It looks like the old Starlight Motel out on 39th Expressway.to me. They put in a fraidy hole after the 1971-2 tornadoes ran down 39th Expressway. But I could be wrong. 🙂
