The newest motorway casualty, Welcome Lodge was thought up after Welcome Break were sold by Granada. Granada had insisted all the Welcome Breaks had Travelodges and Little Chefs, but due to franchise complications this had to change.

As part of a wider-scale change, in 1999 Welcome Break started replacing the Welcome Lodges with a licence use of the better-known brand Days Inn. The changeover was planned to be quick, but there was little action and it wasn't until April 2009 that the final Welcome Lodge changed at Charnock Richard.
