Mary Ann Motel, Jesup

This is one of a few survivors of numerous motels located in and near Jesup on US 301, mostly from the 1940s-1960s. I believe it was last used as apartments. The two story building was likely an office/residence and may have had a restaurant, as well.

    In its heyday, when 301 was a main thoroughfare, this was “Camellia Courts”, a popular motel owned and operated by Curtis and Mabel Harper of Jesup. The Harpers were my husband’s uncle and aunt. The motel offered a restaurant, swimming pool, and beautiful camellias cultivated by Mabel and shared with guests.

  2. The last time I was there the sign was still up. It was the Mary Ann Motel.

    Not sure about the ”cabins” (as I recall what they were called back in the days), but the 2 story building on the front definitely has some architectural potential!
