Check out this fun motel sign. The Brer Rabbit Motel in Villa Park still features its bunny on the marquee with a somewhat mischievous grin.


UPDATE 08/08 : This great sign is GONE.  As of a week ago, there's now a very plastic box that simply says the name of the place. Many thanks to Gary for update. 08-08

The Drake Motel

This photo of the Drake Motel in Springfield, OH looks like something out of a 60's picture book. The tranquil setting harkens one back to the days when the air was clear and traffic was nil.
