Steve Harvey and the Green Motel

Motel on East Turkeyfoot Lake Road has had an eventful history. Summit County Sheriff’s Deputies and Green paramedics responded to 27 separate incidents at this hotel within one year alone.

Steve works a shift with maintenance worker Ricardo at the world’s largest Econo Lodge and discovers that Ricardo has worked multiple jobs to put his son through medical school.

Early Life and Education

Green motel known for its turbulent past – including the murders of its pay-by-the-hour owners and their 6-year-old daughter – was demolished on Monday morning. Crews began dismantling its 20 cabin motel, office, and house on East Turkeyfoot Lake Road.

Gil and Moon purchased the Happy Traveler Inn in 1978, renaming it Steve’s Motel after their son Steve. They stayed there until 1985 when they decided to retire back home to California.

Lee took over and made changes that teenage Steve didn’t always approve of, adapting it to industry changes and withstanding competition from national chains that came into town over time. Last year, however, she sold it back to the city who will demolish it as part of new development efforts.

Professional Career

In 1980, Steve launched Hospitality Valuation Services with his unique combination of hotel expertise and real estate appraisal skills as the driving force. To give himself a competitive edge in this rapidly expanding industry, he pioneered an industry first consulting report which combined hotel market study and appraisal in one report; quickly positioning him and his company as industry experts. This form of credibility marketing established them and their company as leaders within their niche field.

Steve currently works at Davenport Group Consulting as a Hotel Broker who specializes in hospitality investments. Additionally, he serves as Recording Secretary of the Hotel Trades Council.

Steve can often be found outdoors enjoying nature or reading for pleasure. He supports community initiatives that promote family values and education, with his personal philosophy being service and paying it forward.
