Hotels and Motels of Camden, NJ — from the seedy to the swanky
The West Jersey Hotel at Delaware Avenue and Market Street was built by the West Jersey Ferry Company in 1849. It was run by different parties through the ensuing years. Stephen Parsons operated the business from 1884 until his passing in 1890.
The Hotel Plaza
The Hotel Plaza was built at Fifth and Cooper Street in 1927, and was originally called the Plaza Club Hotel.
Towne Park Motel
The Towne Park Motel stood in the 800 block of Market Street in Camden NJ. Built after World War II, its business declined as Camden's economy fell off. By the early 1990s it had devolved into a rooming house, inhabited mostly by junkies. prostitutes, and other undesirables. It was razed early in the 2000's.
