Here's an old roadside sign for a motor court called the Echo Motel, located somewhere in Indiana. The signs says TV, but the letters say vacancy. What this means is a puzzle in its own right.

Duellman's Motel sports quasi-holes in its marquee stand. Still an interesting piece of signage.

Southgate MI is home to the Hollywood Motel and its colorful sign. Motel court marquees like this one can be a real standout, especially in this day and age of the plain backlit plastic signs.

Look for a hot tub for two or even a free rubber ducky? Then the Presidential Inn of Cicero, IL is the place for you. Do you live nearby? Don't worry... get a room here and you'll still receive a free rubber ducky.
