The La Crescenta Motel is on the market and was in escrow this week, according to a local real estate agent.
The motel and the adjoining vacant property, located at the corner of Briggs Avenue and Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta, were in a 10-day escrow as of Aug. 3, said Mike Kobeissi of Dickson Podley Realty in La Canada. Kobeissi said the seller of the property does not wish to discuss the sale, and the company purchasing the property does not wish to reveal its identity until escrow has cleared. The property may fall out of escrow, or may be purchased by a different buyer.
The La Crescenta Motel is best known to longtime Crescenta Valley residents by its previous name, the May-Lane Motel. The motel has been the location of several movies, including "Win a Date with Todd Hamilton," released in 2004, and television's "X-Files" and "Law and Order."
