The motel were Aileen Wuornos stayed.

This is the Florida motel where female serial killer Aileen Wuornos stayed during her crime spree in 1989 and 1990.

It is situated at 5964 South Ridgewood Avenue in Port Orange, Florida.

At the time of the killings, it was known as the Fairview Inn. These days, it is called the Scoot Inn.

Wuornos slept in Room 8. However, following a renumbering, the room that she stayed in is now number 7.

It is worth pointing out that none of her murders took place at this inn. Instead, her crimes were committed elsewhere, on remote roads and in secluded woodland areas.

Wuornos lived here with her girlfriend, Tyria Moore, up until her arrest at the nearby Last Resort bar in January of 1991.

Trivia.

  • It was built in 1959.
  • Mike and Dawn Bock did not learn about the motel's past until they were about to sign the papers and finalize the deal. However, the link to Wuornos did not dissuade them, as none of the murders occurred at the property.
  • The rooms were renumbered after the owners decided to remove one of the rooms and add it to their own apartment.
  • Other websites state that the room was originally numbered as "Room 9". However, this is incorrect. The original room number was 8.
  • The inn describes itself as a "biker-friendly motel". Hence the name and logo.
  • Mike and Dawn Bock sold the inn for $385,000 on October 7th, 2020.

This is the motel room that Aileen Wuornos slept in. After the new owners took over the inn, they cleaned it up and refurbished it.

Therefore, it is likely that the room looked very different when Wuornos was staying here.
