El Rancho Motel
Yuma, AZ

Out in Yuma, Arizona stands the El Rancho Motel. Tucked away just off the roadside, the El Rancho is still open for business.


UPDATE 11/20 : Here is another photo of the sign from 1998. The El Rancho marquee featured little lanterns on top of its sign. Today the sign has been painted over and the lanterns have been removed losing some of the sign's character.

The Tropicana "Adult" hotel/motel off the Miracle Mile still features a neon palm tree sign. The Tropicana Motel opened in 1960 and was known for it eye-catching neon sign.

In the mid-90s, the motel shifted its business into becoming an adult bookstore, props, and movie store.



UPDATE 11/09 : The Tropicana Motel along the Miracle Mile was condemned and was demolished back in 2004. 11-09

UPDATE 04/17 : The Tropicana sign was restored in 2011 when the city created the Neon Art Walk. The neon itself was restored as well and lights up the boulevard at night. 04-17

Phoenix, AZ

How about this thematic sign for the Trails End Motel. The character image depicts discovering the end of the trail. The sign advertises satellite RV and kitchenettes.


UPDATE 10/05 : During the demolition of the structure, the city had the sign removed and placed in the city's maintenance yard less than a half-mile up Grand Avenue. Unfortunately, the signs future is uncertain as there currently aren't any funds to repair or install it, or a location for it to be installed. Many thanks to Jodey Elsner for update. 10-05
