The Scioto Motel was purchased in June 1967 by Damon and Almeda Corwin, coming to Waverly from Marion, Ohio.  Damon and Almeda Corwin had planned to buy a motel in Columbus and had even gone to closing but the owner was drunk and Damon refused to deal with a drunk.  They left and bought a Columbus paper and found a for sale ad for the Scioto Motel.  The motel at the time was closed.  Since they already had the financing in place they bought the Scioto Motel and moved to Waverly.  After operating the motel and restaurant for many years they opened the Pike County Mobile Homes and Scioto Discount store.  After the passing of Almeda in 1997 and Damon in 2004 their seven children Mike, Terry, Linda, Deb, Linda,  Brian, and Becky took over the operation of the business.  In June of 2008, the family decided to close the Scioto Discount Store.  Mike and his wife Sharon reopened the store as Scioto Discount Outlet store on Ford Ave. behind their Diner 23 restaurant. Connie Blazer and Danny Conley two long time employees were given jobs at the new location.  Connie has now bought the Scioto Discount Outlet Store.

 

March 6, 2010 Auction Day Motel fails to sell. 
 Only one bid of $200,000 was tendered for the approximate 10.5 acres and as a result the owners declined to accept the bid as insufficient.  A pretty sizeable crowd  of tire kickers present but apparently few serious about buying.
