Other Roadside Motels Midwest

 

River-Aire Motel
Sault Ste Marie, MI

Here is the marquee for the River-Aire Motel standing tall in Sault Ste Marie, MI. At first it appeared that there was just a sign remaining, but back behind the house there was building with what looked to be 3 or 4 motel units. It wasn't clear if the motel was open or not. The sign has some of the tubing missing. 12-08

The Dunrovin Motel prides itself on being "the quiet" motel. There was just this sign and no building in sight anywhere. 12-08

 

 

Sunset Motel
Sault Ste Marie, MI

Here's another distinct roadside motel sign found in the Michigan town of Sault Ste Marie.

I was by this place twice in June and once in August and never anyone or any cars around, but the grounds at the place always was mowed. Not sure if the Sunset Motel is closed these days or if its still in business. 12-08

 

 

7 Seas Motel (Closed)
Sault Ste Marie, MI

The 7 Seas Motel was one of three motels located across from the Soo Locks. In June and August of 2008, the motel looked to be closed along with the gift shop of the same name. The 7 Seas was located above and also behind the gift shop. 12-08

 

 

Rest a While Motel (Demolished)
Sault Ste Marie, MI

Visions of relaxation when the name Rest a While Motel pops up after a long and hard drive. Unfortunately, there is no motel left here, just a small pile of rubble and an overgrown lot. 12-08

 

 

Captains Quarters Motel
Saugatuck, MI

The Captain's Quarters Motel is still operating and the sign looks to be functional. It is located along the US 31 route that bypassed Saugatuck. 12-08

 

 

The Pines Motel
Douglas, MI
Photo and info courtesy Alan Culley

The Pines Motel is located in Douglas, MI, just across the Kalamazoo River. Although I don't think the sign is too terribly old, the motel is a 50's-60's mom and pop place and the sign was designed to resemble an older version. 12-08

 

 

Shangrai-La Motel
Saugatuck, MI

The Shangrai-La Motel sits on the newer US 31 a mile or so NE of Saugatuck, MI. 12-08
