Located on the once famous Highway 367 in Judsonia, Arkansas, Texas Ill Motel sits by itself next to an old gas station and restaurant/church. Back in Texas Ill Motel’s prime days, this place was jam-packed with passing truckers, and local residents looking for some good coffee. In the early 60’s after the motel had been opened for 20 years,  the manager decided to put up a bigger and flashier sign because of the booming business. The sign could have been seen 2 miles down on a late Saturday night. One local resident who remembers the motel as a joyful memory remembers taking his family out to the small restaurant that the motel opened every Sunday after church. This resident is in his 90s and is saddened by the condition of his town that he called home. “They had the absolute best homemade biscuits and gravy! It was like I entered heaven with every bite. That’s what I’m going to miss about this motel, and it’s crazy to think that places like this have been replaced with McDonald’s and other chain restaurants. You can never go wrong with local restaurants!”  No plans for this motel is in the future. Only silence and empty halls are left.
