Yes, there are still rooms for rent at the 11-70 Motor Courts in Knoxville, TN. Off the 40, not sure if this motor court still serves as a roadside stop for a tired traveler.

Here's the White Horse Motel in Biscoe, NC. Check out this unique type of marquee outside the motel. The sign appears very clean and spotless. Not sure what the motel's like though.

Robins Motel

The Robins Motel is on a strip that follows some railroad tracks in Warner Robins, Georgia. Several shacks lined the tracks such as bars and convenience stores before there were chains. Directly across the street was Robin's Air Force base - a huge facility which seemed on high alert. Six sheriffs cars were parked out front and a constant stream of cars were entering the base. A large bomber was circling overhead. It was a very apocalyptic scene given recent events.

 

 

Peach Blossom Motel
Spartanburg, SC

The Peach Blossom Motel sits on Business 85 through Spartanburg in upstate SC. The neon writing seems almost overshadowed by what looks like a boat mast of light bulbs off one side. Right next door is the motel itself complete with a lit up flower. Peaches are big in this section of the state.
