This Pool Lamp is one of many that once surrounded a pool in a Mobile Home park in Tucson, AZ. What an interesting looking lamp.

Starlite Motel

Here's the marquee next to the motel office for the Starlite Motel in Mesa, Arizona. At this property right off the roadside, there are not just one but two fancy marquees.

The swimmers (right) even still light up at night as the animated neon gives the impression of the swimmer diving off the top of the sign.


UPDATE 10/10 : The Starlite Motel lost its animated neon diver sign in a thunderstorm on October 5. According to the Arizona Republic, the 50 year old sign was destroyed when a powerful wind gust sheared off a metal pole support. The motel owner states the sign most likely will not be replaced due to funds required and Mesa's sign ordinance. Another roadside treasure has become just a memory.

More photos coming soon. Many thanks to Sarah Moore for news alert. 10-10

Well, the El Rancho Motel may still be in business but this one is not. The Bell Shore Motel appeared to have some significant fire damage. The marquee still stands.







Boots & Saddle Motel

Check out the marquee for the Boots & Saddle Motel. The motel was built several decades ago in 1954. Not sure if the sign dates back from then as well. 06-03

UPDATE: The Boots and Saddle Motel opened its doors almost 70 years ago in 1954. This place is definitely a survivor as many of the other roadside stops and their signage have disappeared.

After falling into disrepair in the 1970s, the motel was refreshed and now features long term living accommodtions. The movie was home to a movie set for Coyote Requiem about 10 years ago. 06-23

Located along 2nd Street in the Arizona town of Casa Grande is the Boots and Saddle Motel. The word heard from the authorities is to be careful driving through this area at night. This motel was built in 1954. 12-06
