Just off the I-44 in Tulsa, Oklahoma is the Camelot Hotel and its eye-catching rooftop sign. This hearkens back to the day when rooftop signage were all the rage.


UPDATE 06/07 : The Tulsa Camelot Hotel is scheduled to be demolished in August 2007.  The hotel is located right along the I-44. Plans are for the Castle to be leveled for a new Quik Trip  (7-11) type convenience store. Quik Trip just bought the Camelot for $2 million and is preparing it for demolition. Local polls taken show that 85% of Tulsans do not want to see her taken down.

To keep this landmark from going under, contact the local newspaper at Letters@Tulsaworld.com  as well as the Mayor Tulsa's action line email address MAC@cityoftulsa.com. Many thanks to Chris King for update. 06-07

This old faded out sign stands in front of this hotel in the Great Plains area. Located in Kansas, the forlorn motel is a relatively well known and familiar sight to folks passing through Larned. 11-10
