A Great Place to Eat, Sleep and Stay

Hi-Lo Cafe, Motel & RV Park

Hi-Lo Cafe, Motel & RV Park in Weed, California.

The Hi-Lo Café isn’t your typical roadside diner. The restaurant sits on three acres on South Weed Boulevard and is part of our larger business complex which also contains a Motel with 41 rooms and 4 apartments, and a creekside RV Park offering 16 spaces with their own hookups for water, electric, Cable TV and Free Wi-Fi.

When Frank T. and his wife Gene Rizzo purchased the Pilgrim’s Rest Motel in 1951, it was a quaint little stopping place on Highway 99. The motel was a motor court of little cottages and a residence which included a front office to check in travelers.

One of the first things the Rizzo’s did after purchasing the business was to remove the cottages on the upper level and replace them with the present 17-room motel. Eventually all the old cottages were removed and another motel section with two apartments and 15 motel rooms was built on the lower section.

These days, the Hi-Lo Motel, Café & RV Park is owned by Rizzo’s daughter Margaret Dean.
