Notes: The Hotel Lape was opened by Curtis P. and Minnie Lape in Salem, Ohio, after they bought the building at the corner of State and Ellsworth Streets in 1919. It is not known how long they operated the hotel, but after several subsequent owners the building was razed by the City of Salem in 1973.
